New to Forest River Products

Hello,
Just took delivery on a 2012 Coachmen Catalina Santara 222FB and couldn't be happier.Saw it at the Raleigh RV show and bought it that weekend.Seems to be a solid good quality unit.Traded in our Skyline Nomad 140 we bought last year and discovered it was just to small and having to put down the dinette to sleep was a big pain.Now have plenty of room for DW and two small dogs.Looking forward to first trip in February to South Carolina.
Anyone else own a coachmen product? Would appreciate any feedback.

I just came home with a coachman prism. (new 2011). Was surprised how well it handled when passed on both sides by a 18 wheelers going 80 mph. Btw I was doing the speed limit ( 65)

that's really pushing it, since the trailer tires are only rated for a max of 65mph.
IMHO, 65mph is way to fast to pull a travel trailer, no matter how big a tow vehicle you have.

Thumbs up Congratulations

Hope you enjoy your new trailer.We considered that floor plan but decided on the 222 because it had plenty of room for my wife and I and was a little lighter to to tow.We are planning on taking it to the Cape Hatteras in a couple of weeks weather permitting.
