1) Overall quality 8

3)Alco easy tension axles 10
4) hard wood cabinets 8
5) electrical systems 7
6) heating system 8
7) TPO roof 10
8) stereo system 8
9) heads w/shower 8
10) tires 3
11) bang of the buck 10
12) Forest river 10
13) Most dealers 7 for service after warranty from FR 10
14) I also think Flagstaff has a little edge on Rockwood but did not have the floor plan we wanted. Solid trailer but by no means 4 season, very minor stuff during the 2 years I have owned it. Have drove from Virginia to Oregon never a major problem knock on wood.
And we own the Flagstaff twin to this 5er. We're on our second Flagstaff and I'm sold on 'em.

I concur, except that our dealer (for both the 5er and the TT) gets a 15 on a scale of 1-10 from us!

Route 66 rated Dealer and it shows!

Our dealer: Bayou Outdoor Super Center in Bossier City, LA
(read my review of them in the dealer review sub-forum)

And I'll give FR a solid 10 on the one issue we had with our V-Lite TT.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:
Flagstaff 5er 2014 8528 IKWS, Platinum Package, Regency Interior "Buffy"
F250 Super Duty 2013 Tuxedo Black "Biff"

I got 6000 miles on the Trail Express that came with mine, before they went, just like was said do not drive 75 mph. and check your pressure daily. You will be find, also you will get Coach Net or something like that, for repairing or towing for the first year.
