Our Hemisphere just went into the shop yesterday. We already planned to take it in for some warranty work on the slide that was improperly installed when we received the recall notice. We have a wide gap at the leading edge, which allows water to soak into the carpet when we drove through rain on the trip up and back to Tennessee a week ago. Lucky for us it can all be addressed at once, as we are planning to go on a vacation in it in two weeks.

We love our unit and have really enjoyed about 17 nights in it since we received it the end of March. The floor plan fits us to a "T" and we love the finishes and such.

We have had our 2015 Blue Ridge 3025RL since March and love to use it, we made a 6500 mile western states trip with just a few issues: Shower leak & incorrect kitchen sink plumbing that I took care of. It has been at the dealer since June 3rd awaiting repair for a front cap manufacturing issue, apparently the factory used the wrong fasteners to attach front cap, it took awhile for the problem to be correctly diagnosed as it was initially thought to be an improper or missing weld on king pin assembly or a bent frame. The problem came to light when I found the interior separating in closet, dealer examined and found excessive front cap flexing. The dealer and FR have both been good about keeping me in the loop by adding me to their email chain. We can't wait to get it back on the road again, however I will always have some concern about the quality of the rest of the framework and will be extremely vigilant for any issues like unusual tire wear etc.

Glad they are taking care of you and hope all goes well with the repairs. Sounds like they have had it a long time already. Hope all your summer isn't messed up over this.

We really like our 2014 Sunseeker 3170DSF. GK's love it to. No issues to speak of. 10,000 miles with more to come.

We love our V-Lite.
Only had it since April and the only issues are all dealer installations.

On my third Forest River gradually moving up to the fifth wheel think it's going to be great also. Average 100 nights in each unit per year.

As I stated in an earlier posting, we love our Salem Hemisphere. Two rather large and long trips so far in its maiden season with three more planned and nothing to complain about yet. One of the deciders in our brand change to Forest River is an older couple we associate with annually on one of our trips. The have a Surveyor that is well over 10 yeas old and still looks like it did the first time they brought it into the park. They did say they had to replaced a section of flooring in the bathroom this year but that is all they have done to it other than use it - nearly 100 nights a year.

I feel pretty lucky. Our WILDWOOD X-lite has been great. We've taken 6 weekend trips and just lay in bed saying how great it is to have it. Hope I didn't jinx it!

Update on previous post:still love my Sunseeker ! Still living in it in Wyoming while DH gets ranch refinanced thru VA in Cali so we can buy property here. Had warranty fix of elec. problem with 120 connection at plug in to rig-loose wire from factory and no wire nut on 12 v. All taken care of by Dalton's in Sheridan in a couple of hours. Great service, nice people. Very comfortable in Sunseeker 3170 ds with 2 dogs and 1 cat in Story Wagon Box CG.

About had enough

So far on this trip the black water tank has developed a severe leak , after a day of travel about a gallon of bwater gushes when drain cap is removed, always emptied only when full and flushed correctly. Today we has a blowout along I-40, after looking at the other tires all of them had the metal poking out from the sidewalls amd 2 had metal showing through treads. I am anal about tire pressure and lugnut torque, check them every morning before heading out. Camper is well under weight. Tires had 7,000 miles on them, mfgr dare on tires were 2013, bought unit in feb of this year. Lemon law is comming to mind-bought it to enjoy but hard to enjoy with all these issues.
