I would not compare a Forest River product to anything made by Newmar.
I owned a Newmar Scottsdale MH for 10 years. It was way ahead of anything that I currently saw from FR. Very good quality and QC. But that was made 10 years ago.
They just don't make them like they used to.

Going to throw my .02 cents in if you don't mind.
I could compare ours to a Prevost if I wanted to, but we don't care for high gloss cabinets. What difference does it make, if you're happy with it, go with it.

If the slides on the competition work, they are probably worth the extra money…LOL

I'm not brand loyal to any of them. I think all of them have somewhat took a dump over the last several years. I have owned a Tiffin and FR motorhome. I agree with the Tiffin remark. Good company, but they need to quit putting band aids on problems. FR is good for the price point, but I've never been impressed with any of their facilities and some of their construction techniques. Entegra was top notch, kind of still is, but they were way better the first few years. Even they have slipped a little as they ramped up production. Don't think they'll ever really be what Travel Supreme was. Newmar, well, I've always been partial to them, but never owned one. Loved their fifth wheels, wanted one, but they got out of the towable market before I could buy one. One thing I like better about them is their slide out designs. They've been doing it a lot longer than most.

So, take your pick. Buy what you like. Everybody's got opinions, but everybody also has a different price point to work with. I respect what everybody has. I can't even afford the motorhomes I used to have anymore since I refuse to finance.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
