Brand loyal ?? TT owners or not ??

For those of you on your second or more travel trailer...did you stick with one brand or not. Just wondering what the concensus is... Thanks for your info...wolfie

I've owned a total of 5 trailers. Including my current Prime Time trailer, all have been Forest River.

My first was a Viking pop-up, currently a Coachman product, my next trailer is my current trailer, a Wildwood by Forest River. Never even considered a Coachman product the second time around, the nearest dealer is 140 miles away. This had nothing to do with satisfaction as I only had two problems with the popup, both with the lift system, of which neither involved taking it to the dealer, both were within the warranty period too. Just too simple to fix on my own.

I did purchase both trailers from the same dealer, but this is no longer an option in the future as the economy consumed the dealer and he had to close his doors.

In the future I will look deep into the Jayco's as they have a manufacturing plant right here in town, gotta think about supporting the local economy! However, that will probably be several years away.... who knows by then

i have no brand loyalty.
who ever makes the floorplan we like the best, with the best quality for the price, is the winner.

Nah, last trailer was Shadow Cruiser.

We'll shop for floor plan, perceived build quality and price next time too.

Our Wildcat is camper number 7 for us. Every one has been from a different manufacturer. If we go for one final one, it won't be a Wildcat.

We are on our second Forest River TT (2011 2902SS). Our first was a Shamrock. We got the 2902SS for the floor plan, our next RV will be probably one of the folowing, Carriage or Tiffin. After years of talking to fellow RV'ers these 2 brands seem to have the least problems and great service even after the warranty has run out. Not knocking Forest River, its just that we will be ready for something that can be used full time and year round, with as few problems as possible. So, we are not brand loyal.

We had an Edgewater by Sunnybrook and traded on the V-Lite. It was the floor plan and V nose that sold us on this one. It will be the last as I am not interested in going in debt anymore at this point in our life.
