I'd question why you would buy the cheapest and probably end up with the same lousy service. I heard horror stories about RV dealers FR from owners at the Goshen rally and can say without trepidation that finding a dealer that values customer service just at FR does is the way to go even if it does costs a grand or more. We just did that by buying our 2nd RV from American RV in Grand Rapids, MI. I could have saved by going elsewhere, but with a bit of negotiation I stuck with a dealer that stands behind the products they sell and have an excellent service staff. Suggest you seek the same in PA. Take Care and safe travels.

I would buy another Forest River Rv. We have had some little issues but nothing major. Most would likely happen to any brand of Rv, Other than very high end Rv's that I could not afford, the materials used are light weight and therefore not as durable, just my opinion. So things will need to be repaired or replaced over time. I expect it and in fact find It enjoyable to repair / modify our RV to our needs.

We did buy FR twice...and if the DW says so I would insist it be the 3rd. 26L and now 284BH. Looked for 3 months for the 2nd TT and traveled well over 2,000 miles to look at various manufacturers and none of their quality matched FR. HC

I bought my 2008 Cardinal 5th wheel new and have had very few problems. All of which the dealer took care of promptly with no hassles. We have put somewhere over 15,000 miles on it so far and it still looks and works great!

After years of tent camping we finally bought our first trailer five months ago -- an FR Clipper 17FQ. Besides thoroughly enjoying the comforts of our Clipper and meeting great people in fun places, we are amazed at the quality product we got for the price we paid! Sure, there were a few gigs after our shakedown trip, but our dealer resolved everything to our satisfaction. We've been out about once a month for 2 to 5 days at a time and we still marvel at what a great little trailer we got! Of course, we're already looking green-eyed at the much larger models (which means I'd get a new truck, too!), but we would buy another FR product without looking anywhere else. Quality throughout and backed by a solid company.

Our first FR was a 2007 Surveyor. We quickly upgraded after 9 months to a new Sunseeker 2860. Bought it new in 2007 and never had a days problem with it. Today we traded it in and bought an FR3. My sister had a Thor Ace for 5 months with major electric problems. They graded it in on a FR Georgetown XL new. I think that speaks volume on how I feel about the FR products.

We love our VCross,and have had VERY few problems. Warranty work and parts have been a little slow but it gets done eventually. I don't necessariry think the grass is greener elsewhere. Fankly if I wasn't on the forum to hear all the problems I would think the FR makes the greatest product for the price anywhere.

We've been up in TN for over a week now, traveling to areas all around Pigeon Forge, even in to Cherokee, NC. I'm tellin ya...FR *owns* the RV industry. Jayco is seen rarely in these parts, and other than the big million dollar rigs it's usually a FR product we're encountering.

I was telling DH today that when you consider *all* the components that must come together perfectly down that assembly line for something like what we have, it's amazing that we've had only the couple of minor problems we've encountered.

Buy FR again? With the dealer we have now? You betcha!

Cool

Another thing that amazes me is that *so* many FR owner know nothing about this forum.

We've had a mostly empty park until today....35 space park, with about 12 RVs..tonight there's no vacancy....I'd say 90% are FR...and I've been spreading the word about this awesome resource.
