Hello everyone newbee want to be rv owner looking at a forest river windjammer 2102w I've been a outdoor world thousand trials member for 12 years and always rented a cabin.

Strange things happen: got a quote from RV Direct for a new Jayco. Called a Jayco dealer and told them what the quote was and the quote #. The dealer called back and beat the RV Direct quote............ interesting!

Have you checked the Classifieds at this site? Some great prices on all kinds of RVs.


But the true travelers are they who leave for leaving’s sake
Saying continuously, without knowing why: ‘Let us go on’.

I looked at the 2102W specs. Sometimes when people first jump into an RV they don't know if the capacities for fresh water and the the two holding tanks are going to suit their camping needs. For a mid size TT, a fresh water tank over 40 gallons is a positive. The 2102W was 43...good...We have a 46 in ours which we can get 4, maybe 5 nights showers for 3 people. Also is the Gas/Electric Hot Water Heater an option or standard equipment?

When we ordered our 05' hybrid, we didn't really know too much about what options we would need. I'm glad we were talked into the electronic ignition gas / electric water heater. Friends of ours had only a manual lighting gas water heater. There is a panel inside the cabinet under the sink that has 3 lighted toggle switches: Water pump, Gas water heater, Electric water heater. 90% we will use the electric water heater and times we don't have electric, gas water heater is used...Just be for-warned. You should clean the tube on the water heater at least twice a year. Otherwise spiderwebs can form in the tube and catch fire....
