obviously Guruboy didn't get what he/she wanted for Christmas!!! My thought is interior/exterior......... you really should at least like your RV before spending that kind of money!!! I do believe that the Earth Station is beautiful inside and out!!! Don't like it??? it's ok........ I can't account for everyone's bad taste!!

I think most interiors are designed to keep weight minamal, and yet functional especially in toyhaulers.
But I hear that Columbus is supose to have a toyhauler sometime in the near future. Also while maybe a "entry level" line, Puma by Palamino has a toy hauler that has the same floor plan as our bunk house trailer, except it has a garage instead of out bunkhouse room( T H is a little longer also). I think our interior is nice, not a Trilogy or a Columbus by any means but also 50-65% cheaper. But with 3 kids dragging sand in at the lake I would freak out if they did that with a $75-100,000 trailer

We had HL product and we thought that they were of decent quality. I am not new to how things are built or how to fix things. All my life I've done most everything for myself. We realized the design faults of the HL so we switched to a FR product and I will say that the fit and finish is way better than HL. At least on the model we bought. Because different facilities through out the TT industry build different models it is possible to have one that is well made and a different model made by the same company at a different location is not as well built.

As far as the interior design and decor "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." We all like different things. Our current rig is a Flagstaff 26-FKWS we believe it is well made, looks nice inside and out (we like it). Are there problems and things that we don't like??? Sure but we will fix, upgrade, remake, and/or improve what we can. Then we will live with what we have, enjoy it as much as we can, and won't complain about what we don't have.

I told my wife the other day, "You know we really have very little to complain about." We've worked very hard, are both retired, have a roof over our heads, food on the table and a nice TT to travel to boot.
LIFE IS GOOD !!!!

As a XLR owner and recent shopper of TH alot of the interiors are tacky. I do believe that is for manufactors trying to build with durability and weight. I went in Raptors, Cyclones, Road Warriors, Voltages, and XLR while Shopping. In my Opinion XLR choices for interior design is above the rest!!!! With tons of class and not too much bling. That is what made me fall in love with mine. The first on the list was a floor plan with all the wants. I am not going to comment on quality do to problems that I have had. I know that there are several others that have XLR that haven't had the problems that I have had. Love my XLR Bertha she is a member of the family and interior is important to make me feel at home in her when I am away from home. Wait she is my other home!!

Perhaps the OP only signed up to stir the pot. He has not posted anything other than these 2 derogatory posts, but he was on here yesterday so one has to wonder if he is just trolling to see what he can stir.

I considered this thread to be a troll post from the beginning. He said in his post that he was buying a Cyclone toyhauler built by Heartland RV. Why would he want to join a forum for owners of Forest River products except to stir up trouble? Along with a Heartland Owners Forum there are plenty of other RV forums available on the internet that aren’t specific to a brand or manufacturer.

x2

Not a very good/smart troll though..

Why kick up a fuss on a brand where everyone is an owner of a competing brand?? Usually trolls like to get folks PO'd and defending their brand. All he would get here is "Yeah that's why we bought a FR coach"


Oh well ... Boredom +/or lack of a life causes people to do weird things.

My 2 cents is why complain if you don't like it don't buy it. Everyone likes something different. I agree some toyhaulers are tacky but I think they were ment to be some like that.

We love our Puma Unleashed Cherry Cabinets, Wood panel refrig door Wood grain looking flooring. Our friends have a KZ Sportster that is simular a few nicer touches but the price was nearly double our Puma. (Not to say they have had numerous problems).

Again my opinion is the PUMA Unleashed is the best kept secret. About 1/2 the price of many of the toyhaulers.
