Forest River Quality

We are in the process of negotiating quotes on a Rockwood Signature Ultra-Lite 8310SS trailer.
Was wondering everyone's opinion of the quality of Rockwood's. We've never owned a Forest River product before and thought I would ask a knowledgeable group like this of their opinions. Dealer did say we could purchase a second year warranty for $150. Is that worthwhile??

Thanks for your help.

All TT manufacturers have QC issues, FR, for the most part will take care of warrantee issues. And yes, definitely get the second year warrantee for $150.

Having a good dealer that will handle the TT warrantee issues is very important.

X2. Every manufacturer can/will produce a unit that needs attention. Having a good dealer and doing a thorough PDI is very important. And yes the 2nd warranty is a no brainer.

I bought that same model in early spring, we like it a lot.
Tons of storage, lot's of counter space.
Not one issue with it, camped every weekend from mid-May to mid-October.
We also took advantage of the second year for 150$...what do you have to lose.
Definitely a very nice unit, I recommend it !

We have a Rockwood Windjammer, and have been very happy with the quality of it after three summers and over 90 nights of use. Past results do not guarantee future performance, so your results may vary, but I would buy again.

I traded in a 2011 CrossRoads Sunset Trail Reserve 30RE for my Windjammer 3008W. Overall the quality of Rockwood far exceeds that of the CrossRoads. IMHO

On my second Rockwood here. Have had some issues more so being too picky and getting ready for the long haul with the trailer making sure everything is up to my standards. We have great dealer as well. makes a big difference for sure. Looked at many and the trim level and quality on the Rockwood exceeds Hi End models like Redwood or DR suites IMHO.

The only thing wrong with my Rockwood 5er was a stuck red pixel column on the tele but you can't really pin that on Rockwood. I haven't found anything at all wrong with the actual build.

Forest river without a doubt stands behind their product if there is any issues. While my sabre has many issues, they are arranging to take it back to the factory for repairs for me. Definitely get the second year warranty. Be aware that you are supposed to apply for it within 10 days of purchase. Here is a link to the Paperwork.

My son has had a Rockwood for 3 years without a single problem, we have owned a Wildcat Maxx (Forest River product) for almost a year and have had no problems. We both are VERY happy with our FR products and would buy again without a second thought!

PS- the 10 day period to apply for the 2nd year warranty is no longer in effect. Download the form, attach the check and send it in, you'll get back a signed copy which is your proof of the 2nd year warranty!
