New to Class Cís and Forest River

Hi, All. Iíve recently decided to sell my Roadtrek 200 Versatile and invest in a Class C (Forest River Sunseeker 2350) and feel as though Iím jumping into a whole new world. This Class C feels HUGE, compared to my prior Class B. Itís both longer and wider. Super nice as far as interior space, but a bit daunting regarding exterior size. I expect to receive delivery in the coming weeks and will be practicing driving, parking, etc, etc. Iím so excited I can hardly contain myself, as this will open up so many possibilities for me, especially in a coronavirus world. I look forward to waving to all of you, while wearing my mask and social distancing. Happy Travels, Everyone!!

We'll be waving back from a distance, but with you in spirit. You are definitely going bigger with that Forester, but it'll be worth it.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome!

Welcome! I think you made a great choice with the Sunseeker 2350. It’s a nice compact class C with no slideouts to mess with. The short wheelbase will be easy for maneuvering.

My wife was comfortable driving a 31 foot class C with a car or trailer in tow. I think you’ll warm up to yours quickly and have no trouble handling it. One thing to keep in mind is the height. Watch for low hanging branches, and of course low bridges!

Thank you so mucg, Guys!

Behind Bars, what is the best way to avoid low bridges? Iíve read mixed reviews apps, etc that track such things. The RoadTrek could go almost anywhere. How do I ensure Iím not caught unawares by unexpected low bridges? Tips? Thoughts?

Just know the height of your RV. Your biggest problem might be, after you get comfortable driving the class C, forgetting all the height above you.

Maybe someone else can chime in with vehicle height awareness tips.

There are RV specific GPS units that can supposedly route you safely according to your vehicle’s height, but I don’t have any experience using them.

Thank you so much for the caution and the suggestion, BehindBars. I’ll look into these things. The thing that concerns me is finding myself on a highway and running into a low overpass that I can avoid cuz there’s no turn-around or turn-off. What then?!?! Yikes!! Definitely need to check for those apps that provide advance alert. :-)
