We had a 2001 Cardinal 25LXDS for 12 years. It was a wonderful 5th wheel. We pulled it from the Rockies to Bar Harbor & Canada to Florida. Unfortunately it was getting up there in age and, although there was nothing wrong with it, we decided to trade it in and bought a 2015 Cedar Creek Silverback 29RE this past February. We stayed in the Silverback for our last month in Florida and returned to MI just 2 weeks ago. A couple of minor problems, but overall it has been a very nice unit. Additionally, it pulled very well. We took a side trip over to Pine Mt., GA and up through TN via I-24 and it was a nice pull through the large hills.

Wish we had stayed with Forest River. As of last month, we now own a Jayco Greyhawk Class C. I like the 2-year warranty (biggest reason for our purchase), but Jayco design, craftsmanship, and QC are not on par with our FR Crusader 5th wheel.

Jayco Class C’s are in line price and quality with their comparable Forest River brands. A little more expensive, but well worth it from a quality standpoint are Winnebago and Itasca.

Best In Show

My 2014 Berkshire 390RB-40 won BIS at local Car & RV Show. Not many people know the Forest River brand in West Texas. Lot of show goers felt it had a high price point due to a lot of amenities, i.e. water manifold, water heater, and Beautiful décor. Craftsmanship drew a lot of attention as well. DW&I looked a long time to find the "ONE". Berkshire by Forest River won out. I have had good used DMH to get started, a new 5er, a used Gasser, and the Berkshire is the keeper. I have a Great Dealer in Lubbock, TX that goes above and beyond to make sure DW is Happy!

I've had mine for 6 days. I love it.
I don't need another one right now, but maybe in a few years.

I'd consider another FR product as long as I can purchase and have any work on it done by a different dealer.

We started in a Forest River Rockwood pop up. We purchased a 2015 Forest River Wildwood 29QBDS in December and we love it! We've taken it out every weekend except for one since purchasing it. The only problem we've had is the LED light strip under the awning had 3 lights that went out…and the dealership quickly replaced them. So, yes I'd buy another Forest River!

Interesting question. Really considered a Jayco but ultimately it was the floor plan/storage that sold us on our 8528RKWS. Would do it again in a heartbeat! Just love it

I'm on my FOURTH Forest River Sunseeker, so I guess I'm sold and loyal to Forest River.

I've had a Rockwood 2109S TT and a 8282WS 5er; but when it was time to go motorized, I got a Jayco Precept. Jayco put way more extras into their coach for the money than anyone else in that price range, and so far the 2 year warranty is stellar. Outstanding Customer Support without having to involve the dealer; which is always a plus...
