The chef will love cooking with this motorhome! They can choose to cook either indoors with the three burner cooktop and flip-up countertop or head to the outside kitchen to breathe in some fresh air while they grill up some juicy burgers on the cooktop. The separated bathroom makes it easy for one to freshen up in the 24" x 32" shower while another uses the private toilet and sink with medicine cabinet above it. The rear private bedroom has a 60" x 74" queen bed slide with nightstands to set your glass of water and wardrobes on either side of a linen closet with a 12V TV for your entertainment. The booth dinette and sofa also offer comfortable sleeping spaces once converted, as well as the 60" x 80" bunk over cab mat which can be switched out for an optional Trekker cap with a built-in entertainment center!

A keyless entry comes standard for your convenience, along with a color back-up camera and side view cameras for added safety when parking. The Forester Classic motorhomes also include a Maxx Air multi-speed power fan with a cover, a shower skylight, a cordless 12V charging plate, plus black out roller shades for privacy any time.

Customer Satisfaction is Our #1 Priority.

 

At Forest River, Inc., your needs, interests, budget, and lifestyle are at the forefront of everything we do. This affects every step from design, to the manufacturing floor, and on to you, our Customer. Whatever your need—recreation, transportation, or cargo hauling—we strive to bring quality products within reach of everyone. It’s not just a slogan: “Customer Satisfaction is Our #1 Priority.”

 

In 1996, Forest River founder Peter Liegl had a vision. He foresaw an RV company dedicated to helping people experience the joy of the outdoors by building better recreational vehicles. After purchasing certain assets of Cobra Industries, the Company started manufacturing pop-up tent campers, travel trailers, fifth wheels and park models. Continually growing, Forest River now operates multiple manufacturing facilities throughout the United States producing Class A, B and C motorhomes, travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers, pop-up tent campers, truck campers, park model trailers, destination trailers, cargo trailers, commercial vehicles, buses, pontoons, and mobile restroom trailers.

 

Our large production capacity enables us to fill our customers' orders promptly without cutting corners or rushing through production procedures. This ensures that each Forest River product is conscientiously built and undergoes thorough, detailed inspection before it's shipped to the customer. This guarantees that every family who desires quality recreation will find a Forest River product that serves their needs, interests, budget, and lifestyle.
