Hello From Massachusetts

Good morning everyone...

Just joined the forums as a first time Forest River owner.

My Lovely Bride and I just purchased a new to us 2007 Surveyor SV 236ST Hybrid.

I'm going after work today to pick her up. I've never owned a big camper like this so I'm very excited.

Seeing as it's older...I'm certain that there are going to be loads of thing that I'm going to have to alas...I will be visiting you all on a regular basis as I start this humongous learning curve.

Hi and welcome to FRF!
Be sure to check out the Hybrid section of the Forum. Hybrids are unique RVs and differ some from other types. That's why it's important to join other hybrid owners that understand their differences.
Biggest issue with used hybrids is water intrusion. Regular maintenance and inspections are key since you have 2 or 3 giant holes in the walls.
