We have had great response from both our dealer and Forest River regarding any problems, which were minor.

Last year at the international rally I asked about some small bubbles on my front bunk end. Was told that the outer panel was de-laminating. FR offered to replace both the front and rear bunk ends at no charge. When we returned the trailer to the factory last fall, they replace both bunk ends, an electric jack, re-chalked the entire trailer and fix a number of minor issues. All of this was done at no charge to me.

As noted many posting are from bitter customer who at not treated well by they dealers or just like to complain. I for one will always be a loyal Forest River customer.

I have not had to take my unit back for warranty. We are looking a purchasing a 2nd FR product. Most of the complaints about bad warranty work is from people who did not purchase their unit locally but from a wholesaler and had a problem getting their local dealer to to warranty repairs. Because all dealers are independently owned and operated and not associated with FR except they sell the FR line. Because of this reason the dealer is not obliged to repair any unit purchased for a different dealership.

Love our V-Lite, sure it has had a few minor issues and we fixed them ourselves with the dealer providing us witht he pieces we needed as I can fix or build pretty much anything getting the parts was the important thing for us and our dealer came through each time quickly. If we ever purchased another unit it would be from the same dealer and another FR product.

Nothing wrong with Flagstaff's warranty department.
I dealt with them directly on a few minor issues, and they were 100% helpful.
And as far as lightweight campers go, the Flagstaff/Rockwoods are as good, or better, than anything out there.

We have our 2nd new FR Flagstaff and have liked both of them. We like the present 5ver better. No issues with warranty work whatsoever. If we are still around for a couple of more years, we will no doubt buy our 3rd Flagstaff.

We love our Flagstaff 5ver. Only problem we have had is the water pump quit working. Our dealer, Nationwide RV in Grain Valley, MO, replaced it, no problem, no charge. I think if you choose your dealer carefully, you will be happy. When the time comes, we will definately buy from them again.
