NOOB

Hello to all members. My lovely wife (Ch1ckad) came to this forum to learn about getting into a Class A, specifically a Foretravel. Well, we bought a '94 36' Grand Villa U-240 and will betaking delivery tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for answering her questions and pointing us towards even more good information. This was a Giant leap for us, as we have been Pop-Up rv'rs for the last 13 years. We are looking forward to learning and sharing on this forum.
Thanks Again......

Welcome and congrats on your "new to you" Foretravel. Our first Foretravel was a '92 U-240 that served us well. With yours being a '94 it will be a wide body. You wouldn't think that 6" would make a big diffrerence but it does. Does it have the 3116 Cat with a retarder? If so that is a good combo for the size of RV. Enjoy the journey.

Hi El_Dorado, welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your Foretravel. I think you'll like it better than the popup.
