Well, we've been a member of the Forest River family for 6 years...first with a 2006 Sandpiper 305RLW fifth wheel. We only had to take that unit back to the dealer once for minor adjustments. Over the six years we had that we had a few issues, but certainly not Forest River related. We had the toilet valve go out twice, but I got quite good at replacing it.
We only had one AC and in Texas when there's not a cloud in the sky in July/August and the outside temperature is 110 or higher - that's just not enough. Again, not a Forest River problem.
Really - that's about it as far as any issues we had.
SO - it was a no-brainer to look first at Forest River when we wanted to upgrade earlier this year. And, one look at the Columbus 320RS and we saw the floorplan we had imagined in our minds.
And, the fact that while so many RV manufacturers were going through bankruptcy and out of business, the assurance of Forest River's ownership (Warren Buffett and Berkshire-Hathaway) was comforting.
We've been out 20 nights so far in our new Columbus, and it has been back to the dealer once for adjustments.
As the subject of this thread says..."I LOVE my Forest River product" and am anxiously awaiting our next trip out.
For the most part...the Forest River Forums is a terrific place for an open and honest exchange of ideas, hints, suggestions and a place where we can all share and learn from the experiences of others and become friends.
I'm not a big fan, however of those who choose to spend all their time here complaining about Forest River - especially when they haven't even gotten back with their dealer or Forest River Customer Service.
Thank you...and now I'll step down from my soap box and head on down the road.
