NEW Foretravel Coach - the REALM FS6 Coming Soon

Just wanted to pass along that Foretravel has an agreement with Motorhome Specialist RV in Alvarado, Texas to build a new line of Foretravel coach on a Spartan K-3 chassis which will be sold and available only through this dealership. No other info is yet posted upon their website other than "Foretravel Realm FS6" coming soon exclusively to MHSRV. Sure will be interesting to see exactly what it will be.

It will be interesting to see where they position this new coach in their product line. The IH-45 is a 600hp, the Phenix can be either 500 hp or 600 hp, and the K3 will have a 500 or 600 .

Wow, even part of the rear bath is in the slide. That will be a nice expansion of space. At that price I think I will buy a fleet of them!

Looks like a direct competitor to the King Aire. Note...2 yr warrantee.

No doubt you are correct. In comparing apples to apples, seems Foretravel still lacks many amenities offered by the competition... Even the Foretravel top-of-the-line IH45 doesn't even have a dishwasher! Other than the DH, of course! ha

I love the Foretravel looks and cabinetry, yet a friend with a 2014 Entegra Anthem has so many more standard features. I am a true admirer of Foretravel, but think they are still a little behind in their standard features.

At that price point, maybe they figure everyone eats out, obviating the need for a dishwasher! Doesn't make much sense though. Floor plan at MHSRV for the model doesn't look too innovative. My guess is when it comes to fruition, it will have a long list of options to boost the price.

Is this unit comparable to an entegra? I'd be disappointed in that comparison.

Probably a little early to tell what this model of Foretravel is comparable...OTOH, curious what the purpose of the comment is? I don't think OP ever drew that conclusion. Made a simple reference to options versus standard features (on an Entegra Anthem) and the lack of a dishwasher. Certainly, the interiors of the Foretravel exceed a coach $350k less expensive, and they are nice as he suggested.

DEFINITELY no disrespect to Foretravel. I love them and have even stopped to tour them at the factory once while traveling through Nacogdoches, Texas where they are manufactured. I am retired, but in the early 1990s, my previous employer had a 1984 or 1985 year model Foretravel which had been custom built as a critical incident command post vehicle and it was my first RV to ever drive. I am going to attempt to attach a Realm spec sheet I requested and received from MHSRV. I am sure it will be a BEAUTIFUL QUALITY coach. Heading out now to buy my lottery tickets before tonights drawing! ha

I just re-read the spec sheet again and you are EXACTLY correct again! Look at all the available options! I guess I had forgotten all those options, most likely because I know Foretravel is way out of my league! :-)

Enjoyed the conversation here... Thank you & Safe travels!

The boys at Foretravel have gone nuts, who's going to buy those 600 hp hogs? I'll keep my 40' GV with a 3208 Cat that gets 10mpg.
