Quality and construction and reputation question

I am interested in purchasing a destination trailer. Something i will live in full time solo. I was referred to this line by a friend. I am interested to know how you as an owner feel about the quality of the trailer. How do you feel about the construction of your unit? Is your unit 4 season unit? Have you had any experience with dealing with Forest River about any warranty or construction issues. Does forest river have a good reputation? Looking for a good unit at a decent price. Any and all information or advice appreciated.

You should attend/visit as many RV shows and dealers as possible. You will quickly see a strong correlation between the price point and the fit/finish of the unit inside and out. There are numerous floorplans to choose from among the various makes. You will develop preferences and likes that must be balanced with your requirements for full time living and how much you want to spend.

when you say "destination" trailer, do you mean a park model trailer?
if so, they are quite different than RV trailers and not many on the forum, own one.
