that 06 you posted is the exact model. I walked through one at a lot today... also for $16K. Actually after looking more closely, the one I walked through is the one in the picture.
The one I found for $8K is a couple hours from my house and the owner doesn't have a camera (go figure). She said it was in excellent condition, and is just faced with some financial hard times...
at first she said it was an 08, then an 07... i pretty sure its an 06 just by looking at the graphics on it (she did send one picture). I think she bought it in 07, and its an 06. If it's as nice as she says, I might pick it up. Going to check it out in a couple days if it's still available.
I know this is the Forest River forum so you all might be a little biased, but I was just looking to hear if you guys think they are a good brand. I am new to RV's, and don't know much about them.
thanks all who posted... any other comments are appreciated.
