Just like to introduce myself and our 823D which we purchased in Australia from a small imported batch built in reverse to US pattern as our door is in the side closest to the kerb for RHD countries. Has pretty much the complete package except for heating which is not an absolute necessity here.

I pull it with a 2.5 litre turbo diesel Ford extra cab ute similar to your Ranger. it goes a treat and we are happy with it.

Have to say that we had a couple of small issues with the camper but I cannot say enough good things about Forest river as they have been fantastic, super helpfull.

to the Forest River Forum. We don't have many members from your part of the world. Keep us informed on your camper and with your trips. We would all like to see some pictures of campgrounds you visit and the areas you visit.

Welcome; that looks like a wonderful place. Couldn't help noticing that in the first pic that's an interesting Tow vehicle you have there. It looks just like what we call a tractor over here, even has the 3-point hitch. You must camp in some really out of the way places to need that for a TV.

Thank you for sharing. That's a nice pup and it sure brings back some happy memories from our trips in ours. Heck, we even took it for the honeymoon trip through 4 different states and it kept us warm and dry for the entire trip. Enjoy, you'll love it even more after each trip you take with it.

and have fun!
