We just moved to Minneapolis from Cincinnati.
We are in a SW suburb of MSP but will drive to the other side of town for good service.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good RV repair shop (dealer or independent)?
Also, does anyone know if there is a Ford dealer in town who will do oil changes on the E450?
The Forester and the Sunseeker are sister products with little difference. The little difference steered us toward the Forester (one issue was the fiberglass roof).
I would consider the fiberglass roof to be a "BIG" difference.
Both the sunseeker and forester have fiberglass roofs.
Another thumbs up for forest river. We have a sunseeker. All new ones have some issues but forest river was very good to work with when problems arose.
Regarding the awning -
We had two pop ups and now a class c with a power awning (so that's all we really know). Power is kind of nice as it's a press of a button and done. But, as the previous poster said, more to break. Plus, the bigger factor in my mind, is the power ones are NOT that sturdy. We bring ours in pretty quickly when there's wind and pretty much anytime we leave for an extended period of time. This, in effect, makes it less useful in my opinion.
Regarding the hitch -
If it's an '08, it could be equipped to the '08 spec regardless of the chassis / coach year. I think some of the manufacturers introduce their new stuff as running changes.
Also, the bumper change does not necessarily mean the hitch got changed too.
Perhaps a hitch shop can confirm what's installed before you swap it out.
We own a class C.
We currently live in Cincinnati & store the RV outside.
We are moving to Minneapolis & are looking for storage there. There are a couple options:
- Inside (typically only in the winter at places like fairgrounds)
- Outside (typically at a public storage facility)
What the general consensus on what's better:
- Inside (but potentially with mice / rodents taking up residence)
- Outside (but likely with a lot of snow weight on the roof)
I know Minneapolis gets a lot of snow as compared to Cincinnati. I'd like to take a chance on the snow weight on the roof vs taking a chance on mice but don't know how much snow weight is too much.
Does anybody in the heavier snow areas of the country have any thoughts?
