We purchased our used 2007 Rockwood 8315SS after looking at a hundred models. The open floorplan with galley up front is what sold us along with the fact that the trailer had not been used much as the factory seals we still on the sink. Out first TT and once I set up the proper hitch (EQ 4pt), away we went. We are full timers traveling the West and have been running and living in the rig since Feb 2012. Outside of a couple of cabinet door screws coming loose (to be expected given some of the roads we traveled the last 1000 miles), I've had absolutely zero issues and we love the rig. We been through some fairly wicked weather and have stayed cozy and comfortable. We are currently planted on Flathead lake in Montana and are loving life. Would I buy another? Absolutely.

After all forms of camping, backpacking, canoe, truck, PUP, we finally purchased a 2009 23SS HTT. This floor plan offers a great deal of living space with the super slide out, plenty of storage and best of all the tent end bucks.

Other than normal break-in problems, some of which were ignorance on my part, no major problems. Front bunk did leak in the driving rain, while driving at highway speeds.
FR and dealer replaced the seals and no further leaking.

Have traveled cross country last year with no problems whatsoever. I would highly recommend FR products.

Love My Cardinal!

I have had my 2010 Cardinal 3602bh for over a year now which I live in full time with the DW and our dog Pixie. I love the quality and comfort it offers. My microwave did fail at 6 months and was replaced by my dealer with no cost or problem. My dealer is RV Outlet Mall in Georgetown,Texas. It was my 2nd fifth wheel I have bought from them and have had great service always. No rv is perfect but I am happy with the quality and features of my Cardinal.

Happy camping!

WE Love our New Flagstaff! Even though we have only had it a week and our first trip is next weekend it's great.First of all after reading all the bad things that have happened to some people While we were waiting for our TT to be built I have to admit I was getting nervous .But the unit is everything we expected and then some.As of right now after spending more time in it modifying,waxing ,testing , Then working or sleeping. I can honestly say that there is not one problem .All the appliances work all the plumbing is plumbed right all the electrical works and the exterior is chalked and sealed above and beyond my expectations the fit and finish of this unit is great. I am a very fussy person and the workmanship of this unit is great I'am sure I will have some issues but that is to be expected. But it just blows my mind that we are 100%satisfied with this TT Can't wait to go camping. It was well worth the 14 week wait

Hello everyone, I'm Mick and we love our first little motor home. 22 foot Lexington B210 with the rear door, it's beautiful. We've taking three little trips putting a total of 2,000 miles. Now however, we would like to trade up our 2011 to one that is 26 to 28 feet now that we've found out that this is something that we really love doing. So wish us good luck while we start looking. Happy camping to all.

We are very happy with our grey wolf 27bks. We have done a couple of mods - shelving in all cabinets, hinges that stay open, low light switch in the bathroom so the kids can reach, added a post to the dining table. Minor stuff. I want to add speakers for the tv (cable), so it's not so loud when the ac is on. The TT is helping us make some great family moments and memories for our children. A fabulous affordable TT for us!

We love our Flagstaff V-Lite 30 WTBS. The floor plan is better than any other TT that we have seen. Once we walked in it, we knew it was the one. Had not seen a layout with the bunk beds in the front and the master bed in the back on a slide out for more room. We were sold. We even did a factory tour of the place that they build our TT.
Once we got the TT it was just as we ordered and everything works great! Will continue to share more as we use it. Out dealer has been great as well. Westland Camping Center has been top notch thus far. I give thumbs up to Forest River.

Cool Here's my 2 cents...

We love our Surveyor SP 240...for just the DW and I (and a feisty border terrier) it's the perfect size and the perfect floor plan...enough room, all the amenities, great storage, a real bathroom and even an outdoor kitchen (FR designers, listen up...this was a GREAT idea!). We've had a very few minor things crop up...nothing which couldn't be quickly adjusted or easily fixed. For the price, the quality is quite acceptable. For you newbies, take the time to learn a few basics about plumbing, 12v circuits and woodcraft, collect a few tools, use some common sense and the maintainence of your product won't be difficult or remain mysterious. And for you complainers out there..."Quit 'cher belly achin'"!! Coming from a long history of owning cruising sailboats, you folks have no idea what real construction/maintainence/repair issues can be!! Get a flat on I-95 in your TT and you pull over onto the shoulder and wait for AAA...spring a leak on your Endeavour 37 in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, at night, in a storm and you'll quickly become acquainted with a whole new perspective on quality control and repair/maintainence me on this...Enjoy your FR...nothing built by humans is ever going to be without flaw...expect this, and remember this mantra..."the only difference between adventure and ordeal is ATTITUDE!"
