I really like the features of the forest river 243rbs. This doesnít seem to be a very high production model(?) and I am wondering if anyone can provide their own first hand reviews.
We had a 243 something something from a different manufacturer as our first trailer. The layout and the dimensions of the trailer were very similar. We upgraded after 2 years.
Here is why. The dinette is fine for eating and sitting and talking. Drinking coffee. But only for a short period. Maybe others will chime in.
The TV was in the same location as your proposed trailer. In order to watch TV you both need to sit on same side of Dinette. Not very comfortable.
Of course you may not have an issue or not as old as us
Our new trailer has recliners and a dinette. It is a bigger trailer than you might want to tow. I have seen trailers with dinette and recliners/sofas in the same slide. That are not much bigger.
Your mileage may vary. Best of luck either way!
