This unit drives better than my pickup truck. It is smooth as silk. I'm not happy with clean burning diesel engine technology from Mercedes, however. The dinette is very uncomfortable. The rear slide can not be opened if there is a bike carrier mounted on the rear hitch receiver. The convection microwave is mounted too high for shorter people. I have a tough time at 6' 3". There is a subfloor void in one corner of the shower. The refrigerator only works optimally using shore power. DC and propane operation is horrendous! You can see daylight around areas of the main entry door rubber gasket. Forest River full body paint jobs could be better quality too. They need to apply more coats of clearcoat to fully protect the finish. All things considered, I'd rate this unit a 6 out of 10. Forest River could do better with many quality aspects in the building of this model. I will never buy from them again

It is just the right size for 2 people. I like the extra storage above the cab vs a sleeping loft as we don't need the extra sleeping space. I love the extra large television. I like having a screened door. It is nice having the lavatory sink outside the bathroom so two people can get prepped at the same time. It is so easy to drive and maneuver through traffic. We tow a 4 door Sahara Jeep Limited with no problem at all.hings I don't like? I would like an indicator for traffic coming along side us. Can't think of any other things I would change about it.

omg every time i go somewhere something or things break. drawers flying open(tore up the cabinetry one time), fridge acts up, cap on the sewer outlet breaks and falls off, beauty rim flies off on the freeway( which are not reasonably available), one night we got locked in the coach because the door latch assembly broke inside, the leather seats are crumbling apart, i am now working on replacing stripped out mounting screws on passenger and drivers side entry door steps that were mounted unbelievably poor, the motor for the coach entry step, fuses on the water heater...... it goes on and on folks! it does drive like a dream though. gotta give it that. looses a marked amount of fuel mileage towing a 1200lb. boat. and what the hell is up with those emissions monitors mr. mercedes? took 3,000 miles for 1 monitor to turn on so i could get it smoged. THAT drove me outa my mind.

The best Rv I ever had with 42yrs experience! I’m owning few Rvs and if I want to compare them, I would definitely recommend this one! Very easy drive and comfortable for long and short trips. Reasonable maintenance, solar power so NO more hassle.
