I have the Bigfoot system on my 2012 Melbourne, so far they preformed perfectly! Push one button and the system gets the RV level one I can switch to manual mode and level it myself. The auto works good with the limited times that I have used the system. I like the system!

Thanks Ralph

Keisha,

We like the Melbourne 29D, the three slides are great, the shower could be a little bigger. There is not a lot of outside storage, but we like the ride, and the way it handles on the highway. I wish the awning were longer and could be opened after the slide was extended. I haven't been able to use mine as much as I would like but we have enjoyed it when we did use it. I like the 2 yr warranty, but I haven't had any real problems yet, so we will see how that develops later. Thanks Ralph

We got the 3170.
We have 4 young children (and one old one!) so we really wanted the bunk space to separate them at night.
The only big thing we could find aboutthe Forester is that it was more expensive. I think that even with every option we added to the Sunseeker we were still paying less than the basic Forester.
We didn't get the body paint because we really don't care that much about the appearance to others. Otherwise I think we got just about everything. After thorough research (we hope)!

Hi! We have a 2012 Sunseeker 3010DS with the Big Foot leveling jacks. They are great and well worth the money. Highly recommend. One button push and it's leveled with time and energy for you to do other things. Good luck

Have a 2011 29D Melbourne. Just finished our 2nd long trip. 4,200 miles from NC-WY. We did not have any issues with the coach or E450 along the way.
I do have problems with the shower and queen (rv) bed in the Melbourne. Both are to small for my 6'2" body.
It was just the wife and I on the trip. Living space was "ok" for just the two of us. Would be pushing it with more people.
Storage space was ok. We actually packed more then we needed for the month long adventure.
Only regret is we did not have a toad. Will do that before next trip.
All in all, we were pleased with the Melbourne.
