Earlier this year we bought a slightly used 2017 Forester River Forester SLE 2251(about 24 ft.) on a Chevy 4500 chassis, with a 6.0 gas engine. Wanted the Chevy because of larger foot well space and less heat emitting from engine, drivetrain into cab. Similar to Minnie Winnie 22M. Just my wife, myself and our 35lb. dog. Easy to drive and easy to park ...


We like our 2016 2251SLE on Chevy as well!

Our travels are usually the two of us, or on occasion, with a third adult.

Our unit started out with an entertainment center in the overhead bunk, but I removed it and have a twin mattress in the space instead. We found this unit new and on sale, so took what was there.

I've completed a lot of enhancements and a few fixes over time. We've very much enjoyed this over our old 27' Four Winds 5000 on the anemic E350 Ford chassis.


Your Sunseeker does indeed have one OUTSTANDING feature ... no forward-facing cabover window.

Ours had one when we bought it new, but we had no choice other than passing up an otherwise great purchase. Our cabover window got shattered by a rock around 3000 miles from home. It was a nightmare getting it (improperly) temporarily replaced where we were, and then taking two tries by a shop to get it right when back home. Ugh!

Yea, we had the forward facing window on our four winds, but never had an issue with it other than it was a thermal hole. It sure got cold up there. It didn't leak, which I understand is a common problem.

My brother had a mid 90's Winne class C, about 28 ft. His daughter used to ride in the overhead and watch the world go by. One day he caught a rock in that upper glass, which shattered it all over Katy. Fortunately, it's safety glass, so it didn't hurt her. The injury to insult was next: They drove through a swarm of bees within seconds of breaking the glass.... and scooped up a fair number. Now, they had a broken front glass scattered throughout the coach, and hundreds of angry bees to deal with! Yowsa!

Sometimes there is an option to have one or two comfy (swivel rocker) chairs opposite the dinette instead of a sofa. Take the chairs option!

You can swivel and look out the window on that same side. With a sofa you have to do gymnastics to look out that same window. You can swivel and watch the TV. The comfy chair is just more comfy. The sofa does not rock (in both senses of that word!)

Your Imalda shoe collection can go on the floor behind the two chairs, but no floor space for shoes with the sofa.


That's a great idea. I might take out the sofa, put in one swivel chair and a dog crate/bed right next to it.

For anybody that hates the dinette seat cushions. Buy a ½ inch thick mat used for standing at a kitchen sink. Slide it under the seat cushion. Problem is solved.

The 25b by a mile. Small enough to drive and park easily. Good roomy layout.
