Default Re: New owner of a used 189 FBR

Hello Billy,
Do you still have your 2007 189FBR?
Looking for someone that has the same make/model/yr. I have questions.
Thank you,
Alice

I wanted one so bad that I even sold my Jeep Rubicon I used for rock crawling to by a Ram Hemi just to pull it. After two years of driving the Ram, we finally bought a 2007 189FBR.

We went to Charleston, SC to buy it and camped that night at James Island. I love it. The previous owners took very good care of it. The only worry I have is leaks (which seems to be a common concern from what I've read.)

I'm a auto technician, so I plan on doing the maintenance myself. I haven't seen any evidence of water damage, but there are a few places where the caulk is coming loose, but that's to be expected out of a 4 year old camper that spent most of it's life in Arizona.

Questions- If I keep the roof cleaned and coated with the proper chemicals, how long of a life will can I expect?
-Is a slight sag on the roof at the AC normal? Maybe not even a sag, just looks like the weight of the AC weighing down on the roof. Nothing major, just noticed it. I expected the roof to have more of a "hump" to aid with drainage.
-How often should I repack the wheel bearings?
-Any trouble areas on the 2007 FBR that I should be aware of?
-Overall, is the 2007 189FBR's a decent trailer?

Thanks guys,
Billy
