Hi! My husband and I will be looking at a 2012 Forest River Shamrock Hybrid 19 tomorrow. We will be trading up from a 2005 Fleetwood Evolution I pop-up, and we are super excited! The camper is being brought in to a local dealership as a trade-in, so of course, we are hoping it will be in great condition. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I am hoping y'all can give us some input as to what to look for in a used camper, as well as your own personal feelings about this model. Thanks, and I hope to be "official" soon!!

Check very carefully for evidence of past water damage. Don't buy if you find anything. Someone posted a link to a great PDI that we followed when we picked our up. You can use that as a guide when you look at yours.
Good luck, I hope to hear soon from you that you have joined the ranks of us fellow Rooers.
