There years ago the DW and I went to a local RV show just to have a night out together and certainly not intending to buy a motor home. We had a great tent trailer which we both loved. At the show, a 2860 Sunseeker was the first unit we walked through. We ooooh'ed and awe'd for a few minutes then started listening to one of the staff describe some of the features of it to some other folks. We both fell head over heels in love with the coach. Two hours later and after the dealer did some serious pencil sharpening, we became FR customers. While the paperwork was processing, we then got a chance to wander through the show. We did a lot of comparing which only helped solidify our decision. We worked a few bugs out all under warranty and after 3 years we are as happy as the day we drove it off the lot. Would we buy FR again? You bet in a heart beat!

Not only would we, we did. Sold our 2010 Puma 29RKSS, and bought a 2014 Flagstaff 832IKBS. All manufacturers strive for quality products, some do a bit better than others. Some of my buying decisions are based on the dealer experience and their history with each brand they offer, as well as service after the sale. I spent a career overseeing businesses engaged in manufacturing, and for me, the initial 'walk through', and impressions with initial build quality, speaks volumes. Attention to detail: Something that is evident, either as a positive or negative. Stoves, refrigerators, audio and visual equipment, air conditioners, furnaces, and bathroom fixtures; pretty much all comes from a handful of reputable suppliers, well known and long established in the industry. It's the 'unique' aspects of a unit that reflect the builder's capabilities, and that's what I look for. As consumers, we sometimes get too hung up on brand names, and fail to consider other alternatives.

Brand loyalty? With a Ford, a Chevy, and a Dodge titled to us (and owners of all three brands . . . at the same time . . . for the past 12 years), we have little affiliation with brand loyalty, whether it's a vehicle, or something else. More important, by far, is how the product performs for us, as well as the past experiences of others. That's one reason this forum is such a great place.

I agree with Herk. I will keep mine until I can't drive it anymore.

That said, I WOULD buy another FR if I were to need one. I know people with Winnebago, Holiday Ramblers, Itasca and Newmar. Every body has problems.

The difference is that Forest River stands behind their product.

This is my third FR trailer and I would definitely buy another. Sure we had some issues with each trailer but overall they were all great trailers. What I think people forget is that they invested in a house and a vehicle when they buy a trailer or motorhome. Build a new house and I bet there will be issues. Build a house on wheels that gets shaken around for thousands of miles you will have more issues. It seems I fix less things on my trailer then on my house and the trailer has pretty much the same components, if not more, if you add in the vehicle components.

Yes. We've had some issues but Forrest River as well as the dealer have been very good to work with. I think I would even buy the same unit.
