Are there any other owners of this unit out there? If so how do you like it? We are buying it thru RV-Direct to be picked up in Elkhart, IN - had a good experience during the ordering process. Now wondering what to expect when we go to pick it up?
We have a 2007 1809 (no S) and we love it! Had a few problems with it...but Forest River was great about fixing all issues! It is a great size for traveling and look forward to using it more now that my husband has retired!
Still waiting for a date for us to pick it up in Elkhart. This will be our third RV. Started out in 94 with a used 1/2 ton Dodge & a 23' Prowler TT. After trading the 1/2 ton for a 1 ton dually we got a 31' fifth wheel in 2000 traveling as far west as AZ & east as PA. Used it for 9 season's & after a move from AR to KS thought we were ready to stay home so sold the rig. Due to my wife's disability we found staying with family & or a motel we soon realized a RV made it easier & safer for her. So now we have downsized to a 1/2 ton Chevy pickup & the 18' FR Rockwood Mini Lite 1809S. At 75 years of age we figure this will be our last one.
As a side note we don't plan to spend 3 or 4 months in Quartzsite, AZ as we have in the past - come Jan I would still like to make one more trip out to Q'site!
We have our new Rockwood Mini Lite 1809S! Picked it up Monday - working with RV-Direct was a pleasant experience. Spent the last two nights in the Elkhart Campground (nice place) just to make sure everything worked - it did so now we are headed to Marion IN to visit family. Won't have a internet connection for a few days.
