We aren't sure how easy the FW is to set up and not sure what ammenties to expect. We do know the living space is much greater. I'm just looking for more info and if anyone has switched and what your opinions are on that. It's not a done deal for us that we're going to do it but it is something we will be looking into. Also, we will most liking will be looking at used for cost effectiveness as we know a tow truck will be needed.
Before we traded up to our current coach we had a 3912 Keystone Raptor Toy Hauler.
Loved it but so glad we have a Class A. Set up and tear down was a pain as was the length of rig and truck. With the class A I can drop toad in 3 minutes and loose that length in campsite.
Maintenance cost however is much higher.
