The two RV Gypsies had to put their RV in repair at the Winnebago Industries Factory in Forest City, Iowa. Since they live full-time in their RV and do not have a house anyplace else, they were "homeless" and had to stay in a hotel. Super 8 Forest City is minutes from the Winnebago Factory. The room had a queen size bed, a jacuzzi, a small computer desk with one drawer, big TV, dresser with two drawers in 2016 (three drawers in 2017), open closet, small refrigerator, microwave, a coffee pot, two windows, and of course a bathroom. The hotel Wi-Fi worked in the room and was fast but unsecured. The room was on the first floor and was quite spacious and located by an exit door, and the stairs leading to the second floor.

The two RV Gypsies would recommend this hotel. The major changes from 2016 to 2017 was that the furniture was all replaced with the same basic style furniture, but it was black. Curtains were changed. No bedspread on the bed this time, just a sheet, very lightweight blanket, topped by a bit heavier white sheet. Plus a big, ugly Yellowstone black and white photo over the bed

Despite the bad quality and color of the photographs below (The room was dark because Lee was sleeping), the bubbles in the jacuzzi tub in the hotel room were quite enjoyable.
