NEW to RVing and Forest River

Hi all - We are excited about our new Forest River 2861DS and all the fun it's gonna bring to our family. This is our first RV - started tent camping many moons ago and had travel trailer for years. We quickly realized although we are campers, RVing is a whole new experience. Looking forward to all the good insight we will get from this Forum.

Welcome aboard! This forum was a major help with all those questions that come up after the PDI. Don't be shy, post your questions and search the forum, chances most newbie questions have been asked (probably by me). :-)

Welcome to FRF!

Well, this can't be your first RV, if you've owned travel trailers before, cause they're RVs too.

Welcome!! Keep a note pad or app handy so you can remember all the questions when you get back to the forum. Don't be afraid to ask as someone here has most likely experienced and solved almost every issue that can arise.
