Very Newbies

Hi, I am Sue, my husband is Steve. We are new to owning and RV and purchased a 2017 Forester that is on a 2016 Transit Chassis. So far, we haven't been able to get out an have a "Shakedown" Trip, because of some problems and learning curve. We hope to do that soon.

Welcome to the forum. If you scroll down through the main various threads you should see Motor home thread then look for Forester thread. Should be able to get any concerns you have answers by some very Knowledgeable folks. Enjoy Later RJD

Welcome to the forum. We were new to RVing last August and just purchased our 2nd and last RV. Our first was a Keystone and now a Forest River product. We found the Keystone Forum and now the Forest River Forum oh so very helpful. So many kind folk on here to answer both simple and hard questions and great advice is given. Mod ideas are abounding. Explore the site, you will learn so much. We have been RVing for not quite a year and we find ourselves able to help others at the campgrounds, thanks to all the help we received. Enjoy every minute, we do.

A good 'shake down' trip would be to camp in it in your front/back yard...

LOL at this rate the front idea just might win, waiting for the HOA to scold us for having here a lot and not going anywhere.
