New look

Anyone know when this change over happened or is happening for FR3 30DS?

All FR3s are being built with this new interior and exteriors as we speak. This started just over a month ago, so anything hitting the lots will have this!

Thanks for the post,

Brent

Looks good. I like the new dash. Interior looks good.

Can anyone provide any information on what appears to be a Yamaha generator in one of the gallery photos? Good? Bad? Unknown?

It isn't made by Yamaha, it just has a Yamaha engine.

I just noticed one of the new pics in the photo gallery on the Fr3 site has a flex solar panel on the roof. Does anyone know if this is a new feature or option? https://forestriverinc.com/ImageHandler.ashx?ImageID=174510

FR3 now offers a new antenna and solar package standard. FR3 has the Winegard 360+ antenna and Merlin 115W solar panel standard. The controller for the Solar can handle up to 500W; which makes pigtailing easy from the factory installed solar panel. The Winegard 360+ will offer WIFI, LTE prepped (You can add another cell line to his antenna and have data within your RV while driving down the road).

Wow, that new cockpit with the raised and turned toward the driver screen is awesome. Wish they had done this a year earlier, the dash area is so basic and bland on the 2020. I wonder how much to get this new dash retrofitted on our 2020?
