We purchasd our FR 27RKSS in July and took delivery in August. We previously had 2 Coachman TTs. I thought that the build quality of our Coachman units couldn't be beat. However the FR does beat it. I know we'll enjoy this TT a long time

The Bastrop fire

We lived Horseshoe Bay for almost six years. When those fires occurred, it just made us sick, seeing the smoke and learning of so many who lost so much or in some cases, everything. Maybe we'll see ya 'round the campground!

2014 Salem Hemisphere Lite 286rlt

We already have a Skyline 24' Texan TT. I still love it. Still have it. For Sale

We both were on the internet looking at 5th wheels without telling each other.
Jim told me he was looking since Aug......LOL I told him me too. I asked him which one he liked the BEST.

Well lo and behold it was the same 5th wheel. We really liked the floor plan.

We continued to do researched and found it for a great price. In Oct. we took possession of our 2014 Salem Hemisphere Lite 286rlt.

Needless to say we love it after we fixed the minor things that needed fixin.

Infamous Dometic 300 model toilet (replaced) and
Black water tank flush (connections tighten)

Spent 9 days in it over the Thanksgiving Week. Love it Love it.

I lived and worked out of a Sunline 21' for years. I work on nuclear/Gas/Coal powerhouses, paper mills...etc. Over all those years I learned "There is no perfect Trailer." Forest River uses some of the best products made in their trailers; but humans install them. There lays the problem. I just bought a near perfect trailer for me, a Micro Lite 21FBRS. I did my research and Forest River won due to the quality products they use.

I have to chime in here as well. We've recently moved up from a Fleetwood popup to a Shamrock hybrid, and I'm blown away by the Forest River build quality. While the popup had particle board throughout, I have yet to find any in the new rig. The interior of our popup looked so rough when we sold it, with the countertop swelling and chipping around the sink, and the finish peeling off the drawers. Won't have any of that in our hybrid!

Also love the Ultrulube axles - what a walk in the park compared to removing and repacking bearings!

We like our 2007 Georgetown 373 xl a lot. We have just over 55,000 miles on it. We travel about 3 months a year. The only problems were a shorted wire to the heater fan, the ford air conditioner compressor and all of the orange hydraulic pressure hoses to the two slide-outs. I view these as normal r&m issues but maybe some will not. The only disappointment has been the coverings on the davenports and captains chairs. These are beyond cheap. All said we love the layout. The interior finish is about what I would expect for what we paid. The Lippert hydraulic slideouts work fine - (2 x 16'0").The MH drives and handles very well while pulling my Jeep. In fact we are now looking to purchase a new Berkshire in the spring. My service experiences in the Des Moines Iowa area has been good.
