I think it's also poor logic to state that forest river is so big, therefore they must be making great products.

The real fact is that the whole company is a sham in the sense that most people who buy a camper probably never realize until the actual point of purchase that the unit they are buying is made by forest river. FR makes so many units marketed under so many sub brands it's next to impossible to avoid purchasing from them. This has to be done intentionally, and I would be willing to wager the system is rigged for this very reason - to confuse people into buying their products.

Of course it's their fault that they bought companies and created dozens of brands to mask who they are, and yes - if a customer was trying to avoid FR because of their poor workmanship, it would most certainly matter.

It will matter to me when I make my next purchase.

I'm sorry you've had a difficult time with your unit.
I believe the great units outway the inferior ones.
I hope your next purchase no matter what the brand is a better experience!

brookside, I don't know what you think you are going to buy that is a better unit in the same price range.
I looked at a lot of different brands, that were not made by FR, and the only way to get a better unit was to pay far more. None of the units in my price range were any better quality, and most were far worse.

really... you looked at their construction in detail? crawled under them? removed the cabinets? examined the welds?

I know forest river makes different brands but do they come down the same line from the same factory? Asking because when I researched for tt in our price range with what we wanted we ended up with the puma because they had better reviews than most but I see quite a few complaints about forest river.
