We love our Solera. We had trouble with the Murphy Bed, but once we bought all new parts and my husband re-installed the entire mechanism, we've had no troubles with it. We appreciate all the room with 24M floorplan, including a very nice sized bathroom. And we think the inside storage inside is amazing. We're very happy with our purchase.

14 CC 38CK I totally agree with you....but it's not just campers that need better QC. Cars, computers, furniture, clothing, the list goes on. QC is a forgotten art in the manufacturing process.

FR3

Just got our 2015 FR3 back after a lengthy stay at the dealer, all bugs worked out, mods finished, and love it. This is an upgrade from our 2007 FR Cherokee Lite 28A+ which had 0 bugs and we loved so much we went straight for a FR Class A.

Well for us, FR (if by FR you mean Forest river), is a big disappointment.... we bought our 2014 Windjammer upon recommendation that Rockwood delivered higher quality products than other makers....

From a water line in the wall having been tacked right through it at the manufacture (imagine the water damage), to counter tops discoloration and windows breaking because installed to tight in the frames, etc... I guess it was manufactured on a sunny friday afternoon when employees were in a rush to finish for the weekend...but did not think of ruining an entire camping experience for the customer...

Very happy with our Surveyor. Second one we have had. A few problems but nothing that couldn't be fixed easily.

Have very fond memories of our 2008 Shamrock 183 despite some delam issues and we love our new Shamrock. No big issues thus far. I was involved in the RV industry for a few years (Thor) and saw trades from all the major manufacturers and would put FR up against any of them.

Love

As in life, you never really hear about the good, just the bad when things go wrong. Kind of like watching the news.

I love our 2012 XLR Thunderbolt, 35X12. It is beautiful, the bathroom is wonderful, the kitchen area is well planned. I wish my kitchen at home was as well built. Although the cabinet door on the pantry was a little heavy for the screws and it broke off. We are just going to take the inside part out and replace it with a nice brassy looking thingy.

We pull it with a Ford F-350 with the dreaded 6.0. Had to have some mods on that and now my husband isn't afraid of using it. We haul my V-rod trike and his Dyna-glide. Hopefully we can use it more than just a few days a year for a motorcycle rally. Went to Smokey Mountains last year and everything was wonderful.

Unhappy Recalls

Another recall affecting 1,500 FR products. It addresses the wheel studs that hold the wheels to the axle hubs. This is a very important recall that everyone needs to look up.
