RE: 2018 Forest River Forester

Merry Christmas All.... I have owned this exact model since new. My wife and I have truly enjoyed this unit so far. My hobby interest include tinkering with my vehicles. I have enjoyed modifying this platform. The 3500 Sprinter platform is a solid piece. Mechanically it has been flawless so far...(15k miles). Came with Hellwig rear sway bar. Installed: Sumo springs, custom Fox rear and Koni FSD front shocks, Bigfoot auto leveling system, AGM coach batteries, RV Armor roof coating, Oxygenics shower head, and Dimple oil drain. Removed (silly) chrome wheel covers. They're noisy, add unneeded weight, and unbalance the wheels. Will add Alcoa's soon... The full wall slide really opens up the floor plan. I keep the seals and rails clean, protected and lubed. Silicone spray lube and 303 Aerospace Protectant have served me well. For a big square shape, it drives relatively well. With the suspension modes the road isolation is much improved from stock. Our toad is a '05 Wrangler Unlimited. We use Blue Ox base plate and Alpha tow bar with Patriot II brake system. Towmate brake lights complete the tow setup. The Sprinter tows very well. Fuel mileage is "OK" for the size, shape and weight of this setup. By the time we need to fill-up, it's time to stretch. Sprinter wise, oil changes are a breeze and keep the EGR clean for flawless running. River Forrest wise, for the investment this platform has been perfect for us. Have had zero RF issues. Being an "actual" owner of this coach I have no regrets. We are part time RV'ers living in SE Louisiana. Have been all along the gulf coast, up through the mountains and down to the Keys. Using forums, being open minded, and common sense we have learned a lot about this Class C motor coach. Best of luck and enjoy your experience with the Sprinter.
