Weezer.
I used his own words.

If you'd like I can reference them for you.

Turbo,

I'll take your word for it, but I'll give you a scenario;

I can call my sister (or even myself) an old hag, but if someone else calls her (or me) the same thing, it's a totally different thing.

We all (or the overwhelming majority) own Forest River products. A new person coming here might not KNOW he called his FOREST RIVER product a POS and that you're just repeating what HE said.

This thread is really close to being closed. I have already had to do a little cleaning in the aisles, plus flagging this thread as a "hot topic".

Glad to get the conversation going. I have a daughter currently living in Mishawaka and working at a hospital and her husband works in Elkhart for the Railroad. When you FROGS are to Goshen, get off I-80 and explore the area. Go visit the river front in Mishawak..... drive down Hiway 20 through Middlebury and see and visit the slower lane of life with the Amish and their horses and carriages and the people. I spent a week earlier this spring and explored (even Goshen) the area, from South Bend to the Ohio line. One event is great, but also explore a little.

I do want to note: that I have been camping right now.... from the 3rd to the 14th.... (state park with WI-FI) my wife and I have been saying time after time during this week that we love our unit more and more..... but we do add... as long as everything works. We have fixed and killed every bug we could find and the slides are working as they should before this trip and we are happy with her. We have camped around 25 days this year and have Reservations so far for 15 more and may pick up some more days if we can before the end of the year. I don't like high maintenance women and I don't like high maintenance stuff. I treat my wife as a queen and feel humbly inadequate when things don't work or go wrong. I do what God gave my carnal nature to do..... wine and more wine... with my cheese please.

My apologies to Turbs. He may not realize it but I admire him very much.



My POS is growing into a Rose....

Blessings

Ok now I smiled
Forgive and forgot.
I apologise for being rash and inconsiderate.

First I apologize

Second I think I may have either been misinterpreted or misstated my case. I apologize again for being unthinking before I hit send.

What I was trying to communicate is something that I do to completely understand yet, but am beginning to realize; that being that there are different build levels in RVs. Please all, I am not trying to be class conscious here or be better than thou I guess my communication methods have failed me - I am usually more tactful.

What I seem to be observing - and PLEASE correct me if I am wrong! Is a continuum of quality and quality assurance among the brands. Am I correct or not? Please educate me.

Again if I have offended anyone please accept my most humble and abject apologies. My comments were not directed toward you or the RV you own, they were directed toward the industry and dealerships.

I am embarrassed and mortified that my post was misinterpreted because of my inept wording. Again, please accept my apology.
