looking at a new trailer?

My wife and I are looking at a Forest River 366FL. Can anyone tell us anything about this fifth wheel? We have 2006 Challanger 34' with three slides now. We like the front livingroom. We know nothing about Forest River.

Welcome to the forum!

For clarification, what Forest River brand does the 366FL belong to?

Read the threads in the General Travel Trailer and Fifth Wheel Discussion under the two subforums titled Sierra and Sandpiper, they are one and the same trailer. This will give you an idea of what to look for if you buy one.

Looking at the floorplan on FR's site, the only concern that I see is that it appears to have only one gray tank of 54 gal. Most medium-sized campers on up have 2 gray tanks with total capacity of 70+ gallons. It's not an issue if you always have full hook-ups.

I like the front living room set-up.

to the forums! Looks like Oatman gave you a good lead to start with.

While our unit is not the same as the Sierra. I can tell you nothing beats that Front Living Room IMO. We have had our 2013 Cedar Creek 38FL for about 2 monthes now and have spent 18 nights in it. Just love it! The Grandkids have A great place to sleep in the front while we have more room then ever in the bedroom. Just make sure you will be OK with the pin weight, the FL does run heavier.
Now if I could just get my cracked countertop and torn sofa arm replaced, We will be real Happy Campers!!!!

Our problem is when our kids and the little grand kids are with us. We have always went with a keystone trailer. The forest river livingroom has us looking at them. We know very little about them. I did a search and read bad thongs about forest river! I am not impressed with whatI read. Any information would be a big help.

You will find problems with all manufacturers. This is our second Cedar Creek 5er. there wer A few things wrong when we did the PDI the naturally we found A couple more the first time out. most have been fixed. the ones that we are waiting on does not stop our using the unit in any way. BUT someone is dragging their feet, The dealer or Cedar Creek. after our next trip if all parts are not ready to be replaced I will be on the phone to the factory. Yes in the case of Cedar Creek if you have to get the factory involved things move quickly.
Again these are not items that stop us from using the fiver.

You just have to do your homework and buy what you want, just dont get caught in the middle of not looking at something because of complaints,
Besides lets face it there are A lot of people that will complain till the end of the earth about the smallest things, They are the ones that set bad raps on manufacturers
Good luck and enjoy whatever you buy
