Hello Forest River RV enthusiasts,
I am about 3 to 4 days away from signing a sales contract for a brand new 2011 Forest River RV Forester 3121DS.
Before I take the plunge, I am hoping to get input from all of you with regards to this rig. I have agreed to pay $63,000 for the rig. Do you think that is too much to pay? It appears to have many of the bells & whistles that are offered with this year and model.
It does not have the top of the line paint on the exterior nor does it have the media wall in the front end of the unit. Flatscreen TV is there, but no wood work. I love the floor plan.
I heard that the 1997-2008 Ford V10 engines can blow spark plugs, is that still an issue with the 2011 V10?
How does the 2011 Ford V10 and chassis perform overall? Are there any links that anyone could provide to assist me?
I plan to pull my Jeep Wrangler behind the Rig, it has oversized tires and a slight lift on it, would that be a problem?
How well do these units do when pulling a vehicle from behind? Can it move quick enough while going uphill on the Interstate freeways? Could it be too much when going on a long trip (1500 to 3000 miles)?
I have read that the rear axle weight could become an issue when loading my personal gear, is that correct?
Any and all information on anyone's thoughts are greatly appreciated.
