Short answer, my Wildcat has met all my expectations. New Feb.2015 and dealer fixed 2 minor glitches (window seal, caulk line near king pin). Now 8000 towing miles later I am working up the second list for warranty repairs and all I can find is a loose screw or two. So never mind the dealer, I will just fix myself and keep on traveling.

Haha, we broke the rules a bit too. Skipped a couple of steps ... tent to pop-up to fifth wheel

Papabird1952: congrats on the purchase. We bought an end of model year 2015 Rockwood 8281WS a couple of months ago, so fairly similar to yours in many ways, but with the small bunk room, and love it so far. Happy camping

When I was a kid, our camping was always in tents. I remember only being inside an RV once when a neighbor rented a big Class-A for their vacation.

My wife, however, had an amazing camp on a lake-shore in Maine. So for me to get her camping required a compromise and that was a small (18-foot) travel trailer. We both fell in love with RVing and now have a 33-foot and can't camp enough...it's never enough!!

We really broke the rules - first RV for non-hunting use was a fiver....didn't look at anything else ever !!

DH said it pulls better, blah blah ....so that was my only choice - of course, first one we looked at had a slide way back in 1997 so we never considered one without slideout after that one we bought and had it for 14 years !

On our third one now with three slides, last one had two so guess next one will have to have four slides 😃

Not looking for new one yet though

But look at a bunch of RVs before you decide....it was a lot of fun for us before we bought our Rockwood last year!

Haha....we broke 2 rules! 1.) First camper was a 5th wheel. 2.) First tow was a 16 hour 850 mile tow from dealer in Michigan to Long Island NY....only stopping for gas (food and bathroom breaks while gassing up).....did have expirience towing small flat trailers, so I knew about stopping distance and turning.....but to answer original question, love my Forest River 5er.
