We've been Forest River owners since 2014. First the V-Lite (an amazing wheeled cabin) upgraded to a 2018 Forester 3011ds. We have used the 3011ds extensively having driven 15,500 miles mostly east of the Mississippi with a couple of trips to Oklahoma and Texas. We upgraded do to my wife's RA issues. We tow a 2008 Ford Edge with a Kar Kaddy and have never looked back. The V10 450E is more than capable. On the V-Lite we towed with a Ram 2500, 6.4 Hemi, Laremy.
I am now a 75 year old retiring financial advisor. The last two years have certainly been a challenge with finding camping grounds.
Love the freedom and flexibility with the 3011.
Best to all
