Hello fellow outdoor enthusiasts!

I grew up in Montana, spending almost every weekend of the summer tent camping and fishing the glorious rivers and creeks of under the Big Sky. Dad and I would head out at first light on Saturday morning and just drive. I've spent more time lost on old logging trails and miner's roads than most, but I wouldn't trade those experiences for anything! I still love getting lost!!!! I'm happy as a clam when we find a campsite that is primitive and remote from the amenities of RV campgrounds and established tourist destinations.

My husband and I just traded up from a 1988 Jamboree by Fleetwood into a 2011 Sunseeker, model 2650S. We have 7 children, 4 still living at home. I'm the mom that is more than willing to toss the big kids into a tent for the night....but only after telling creepy "ghost stories" and "camper's tails" to help them settle in.

I would love to hear from anyone with a like model and year. It's difficult to find customer reviews and/or common issues that we might want to deal with before hitting the backroads.

Thank you all for the warm welcome and cheers to a season full of adventures!!!

Welcome from Huntsville, AL! Congrats on your new Sunseeker! There is a specific Sunseeker section to the Forest River Forums right here:

But feel free to ask away - lots of helpful folks on the forums.

Oh yeah, Make sure you deadbolt the doors to the Sunseeker after you toss the kids in the tent
