8 months into our unit and about 4K miles I would buy another FR product. My first encounter with the dealer closest to us told me I wouldn't be seeing them again. FR took care of me with what I needed and I made the repaires myself. Haven't decided about the small dent in the nose but it looks like a DIY with the right material. The only complaint I have would be the tires I'm about to replace. No tire trouble yet, just want to avoid it.

3rd FR Product. If we ever upgrade it would be the only RV we would consider

This being our 2nd Flagstaff and considering our ages, the present 5er is the "Caboose" of our campers unless something catastrophic happens to this one in the next couple of years. So yes, if circumstances warrant it, we would definitely buy another Flagstaff.

Three years of no major problems. I lived in mine for 7 weeks when I changed jobs, and still can't complain. Our Surveyor seems to be a popular model, since they discontinued the Select series, but still make our floor plan in the Sport series. I can't complain.

I would buy another Forest River motorhome without a doubt. This Georgetown has won me over.

We would definitely buy another Forest River. Now after attending the rally we can't imagine buying from any other company. We've also been lucky to have good dealer with a great service department

Yes I would. I have owned 2002 Sierra toy hauler and just purchased a 2015 Evo 2460. Every brand has teething issues when purchased new. If you want to avoid initial start up headaches, then buy a used unit.

If you want to spend extra $ then look into Winnebago. You pay more for the same product, but their rep is rock solid.

Life is too short for bitterness, so I recommend buying something you like, or think you will be happy with at least.

So for the price of a Grand Tour ($400+K) I could buy a Tiffin Allegro Bus?

I have been to the Allegro Factory and I think I would choose them over Winnie - just MHO.

Then Again I would choose a Charleston over a Allegro and put the extra $200K in a mutual fund for the Diesel to run the damn thing

(this is an attempt at humor folks - please feel free to buy the MH brand that works for you but...to paraphrase "The Most Interesting man In the World"
