Our "toys" are assembled in the USA, all dealers are here, too. That is local enough for me! I've had no problem getting warranty work done from a local dealer who carries FR, but not my particular units. My purchase this summer from RVW went well and it saved us big monetarily. Ask RVW who they work with in your area for warranty service and see if that fits your needs.

I do thank you all for your inputs. I am going to email RVW and see what they have in my local area for support. I what to buy locally but I work hard for my money as do all of you. When the dealer wants 12 to 14 thousand more before tax and will not come down then you do look elsewhere. I allways buy made in America if I have a choice but alot of items are no longer made in America. Will go back to dealer this weekend and see if they will move on the price at all.

I bought this unit pictured in last month from RVW. Drove up there from LA 1000 miles. No body could touch there price. Had very good service was even able to go into shop in back while they installed hitch in my truck to make sure it was done right. The taxes where figured into my financing. They have a network of dealers that will do service for them. Highly recommend them. I know most of the people in the office by name. Holler if have any more questions.

We bought a new Forest River Wildwood from RVWholesalers and tried to have warranty work performed by a large Texas RV Repair Facility and Forest River denied the request several times. Be Aware!

I for one would never buy from a local dealer again, the dealer I got my Cedar Creek from will not service mine any longer, Ii have to take it to an independent service center that will do warranty work for forest river. I asked the Cedar Creek warranty administrator about this and was told there is no dealer in the network that has to do warranty work, you always have the option of returning it to the factory. With that being the case you might as well shop for price.

We've purchased three Rockwoods from RVWholesalers and saved several thousand dollars on each purchase. Would purchase from them again.

No one is saying that RVWholesalers are bad.
Questions came up and asked where do you take your RV for warranty service? Do you take it to your local dealer or back to someplace RVW tells you to. I was told on the phone that they may send Joe Blow over who says he is an expert that works out of his house. Is this true?

Have only had my unit for month and half and haven't had any warranty work done. But from what I was told any of the services companies in there service network would work on the unit no matter where I was in USA I should be able to find service. If Joe Blow did come I would be watching hem like a hawk. As I do almost all of my repair work my self there would not be any Bull passed my way.

Service Network? Could you be more specific? Do they give you a list or do you wait until you call and they send who they want. Just curious.

I know where my dealer is and they work very well with Forest River on any warranty issues. I like that.

My dealer is one of the best and they will work on any Forest River if you bought from them or not.
