Again I haven't seen that floorplan in person but the lack of dinette was a turn off for me, we saw a similar floorplan in the Jayco precept 29UR. We definitely like the dinette with tv and couch opposing, very usable with slide out or in driving down the road.

Newmar did seem to have the quality especially in the cabinetry and woodworking, but it comes at a price, my Winnie was more than the Thor, the Newmar would have been even more approaching mid level gas prices. Definitely worth a look, glad all the manufacturers are getting on board with the short bunkhouses.

The Flair is my target for the next RV at this time. Of course all may be different in ten years, but I really like the Flair. The finish on the 29T is quite nice. Even the paint job looked superior to my Forest River. I think in this price range the Flair is my favorite. Mind you, I have not driven one, but if it is more stable than another brand of similar size and configuration, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Yes a dinette is a must for me! With a hat said I am very curious about the Flair. Not too many in my area. Hopefully there will be a few at our Mfg RV show in early Jan.

My first coach was an FR3 30DS. Basically trouble free. The 30DS no longer has any options the few options it had are now standard. King size bed, seat belts and potential sleeping for 8 if a few are small. Forest River listened to the early owners and the product improvements since 2014 are abundant. I'll give tFR3 30ds a hearty indorsement.

Liked the styling of the Flair, unfortunately no bunkhouse, so we didn't look too closely. Interestingly enough if you like the Flair styling but want a Storm floorplan you can look at the Holiday Rambler Admiral, which is a Storm with Flair trim. Weird to see HR owned by Fleetwood.

I liked the FR3 too but again no bunkhouse. Seems weird to me for Forest River to come out with another line in the Georgetown 3 series GT3 that seems very similar to the FR3, but anyway it has a bunkhouse, none on the lots yet though.

The FR3 does have a drop down bunk over the drivers area and the coach pulls out into a queen size bed.

Ze406, does your Fr3 have the split mattress in the back? If so how has the experience been? Is it comfortable?

The 30ds model has a 80" long king size bed that does not fold. We put a memory foam topper on it and loved it.

I agreed with you up until I realized there is no oven. As we were watching a YouTube video someone pointed out that there was no oven to be seen in it. After reviewing the Fleetwood site it doesn't look like they included an oven. Most be the convection microwave. If that's the case it may no longer be an option..
