I took a look at Coachmen's RV web site today:

What a huge array of RV's and also learned they are a division of Forest River. I recognize many of the fifth wheels and travel trailers from my campground ventures. I'm also seeing a trend of a lot of vendors really getting into (or have been into) the Class B market. My neighbor who formerly had a Class C (large one) talks that their next venture is a Class B.

So much to see on this web site I really didn't dig into any one in specific so feel free to view the web site above or the YouTube channel below.

I own a Forester 2801QS. I had a slew of problems when I first got it, from roof leaks to body trim cracking. I think it sat on a lot too long. Anyhow, Forest River was great at repairing everything at no cost to me. Now I love it. If it were 2 feet longer and had a permanently available bed, I would keep it forever (well close).

Would I buy another? If I were to go back to a C, yes - as long as they had the trekker or GTS frontcap. I hate the overhang on the standard C configuration.
