As you delve deeper into the innards of your coach you will begin to appreciate the design, the forethought, and the quality of your coach, and the camaraderie of the fellow Foretravel members on this website.
A better, more loyal, and more helpful bunch you will never find anywhere.

Welcome.....
 
 This forum really tips the scales for the Foretravel brand.   

 I see that Liberty coach ( Prevost converters ) offers a lifetime squeak and rattle warrantee.  Foretravel could do the same.

Welcome to the club. Don't do like I did and use local RV places to do your mx. Save your money and pay a visit to the factory service center in Nacedoches, TX. They are fantastic and in the long run will save you alot of money. Can't say enough good about FT , James, Alton, and all the Techs are great. The shop rate of 130.00 an hour is better than most rv dealers or truck repair places. When I took my Coach in for the first time, the shop foreman commented he most likely helped build my Coach in 1997. Experience!!!!!!

Welcome, just like everyone else says, you will love this coach. We too are newbies having purchased our ‘99 U270 just two years ago. Having had, fifth wheels, Class C’s, travel trailers, Class A’s, all new or just about new over the last 30 years, this is our favorite.
What makes it great is the knowledge of the forum members who really share their wisdom, and the fact that the factory still supports these coaches. They are relative simple and many of the repairs simple using readily available parts. Yes old, but these are really things of beauty, we hope you love your coach as much as we love our new to us coach and feel free to ask the forum as many questions as you want, it’s an amazing resource!

Welcome to the party.  You won't find a better bunch of people, or a better RV anywhere.  And, there is no better factory support for older rigs.  I've never regretted a moment of my ownership of a Foretravel.
