I bought my Forester a few months ago, but have just reciently torn into it. In over 30yrs of Motorhome ownership I have NEVER left one as manufactured.
I presently have a beautiful '03 Foretravel, and the 2251 Forester, plans are next year after our LAST (heard that before) trip to AK in the Foretravel, we will downsize into the Forester.
I bought the Forester understanding that it was a basic "entry level" rig, not expecting a lot. The electrical and plumbing installation is better in the Forester than the Foretravel. The structure is just as well constructed as my 2 Lazy Daze. The material used in construction is inferior to both the LD, & FT, but it isn't bad, just cheap. For the $$$ that each of these rigs cost, I'm favorably impressed with the Forester. JMOO
