Yes, this is my second one, had a Cardinal previously. I would buy another one 100%, especially after the service we just received at the rally!

Timing is everything!
We went to Apache Camping Center in PDX today to look at the Arctic Fox Silver Fox Editions.
For the money FR is OK. They don't offer what we want now so we will be going to another brand.

I intend never to buy from Forest River again!

Won't need to since I intend to keep mine as long as I live.

I love mine and have not finished customizing it yet (only had it 4 years so far). It would take a catastrophe to even contemplate it and in that case it will certainly be another Forest River Product.

Depends on the brand/division. I'd buy another Forester Class C or a Cedar Creek but there are certain makes I'd stay clear of based on a theme of issues and crappy service. Like anything FR is a big company and done divisions are all-stars and some are better of on the bench....

Third Forrest River product and would purchase again. I have had very small problems and use our trailers around 63 to 68 nights a year.

I have my eye on a FR product as we speak, but timing in my life made it so I want to wait another year or so to know where I'm landing after grad school. That being said.....I must admit to being open to other mfgrs. I guess it boils down to layout and specs which change every year and reputation of dealer. When I am ready for next purchase, I will see what's out there. For now, my first choice would be the Puma 38pfs park model.
There's not another model quite like it, I believe in the quality and the brand.

Well I had my first 2006 8314ss pick it up and it started to delaminate in 8 days just setting in my driveway, well to make a long story short the dealer gave me another one in it's place ever since then I had nothing but problems right after the warrenty was up. The best thing that happen to it in 2011 is a tree fell on it during hurricane Irene and it ended up in the scrap yard. We went a year without camping trying to find a new camper. We look at FR again but I could see no change in quality just a change in price from 2006 to 2013. I am sorry to say we did not but a FR product.
I did not have any luck with FR but but judge them based on my bad luck as you can see there are many happy campers here on this forum with there FR rigs and wish them well.

I would like to say for the record, this is the best forum that anyone can join, the members here are great and are loaded with wisdom and will share that wisdom in a split second.......Happy camping to all

Would absoulutly by Forest River again. Our Sabre has been a great trailer and customer support is second to none. This forum is the best and our factory rep. SabreSam is great.
