Would you buy forest river again if you had it to do over again?

We are looking at buying either a forest river 365SAQ or a heartland silverado sv37qb. the floor plans are very similar. I went into the dealer to look at the 365saq again on sat and this poor family was there and had their 365saq they had for 5 weeks in there that had so many bad problems the dealer is going to ship it to the manufacturer to do many of the repairs. They had a small fire and have a punch list with over 50 items on it, i looked at the unit and was literally falling appart all over inside!! This did not help my confidence in forest river products. so i thought i would do a poll to see how satisfied people are with thier forest river products. Thank you for helping us to make our decision.

DID buy another Forest River product.. awaiting delivery!
(And its custom!)

Forest River has some big money backing and they DO stand behind their products.

All you have to do is go to one of their RV Rallys. The Internationla FROG Rally... there are as many service repair techs and attendees. And they do a fabulous job fixing rigs thet require service.

The folks on the production lines, sales, department heads etc... all so happy to help and see you when you come for a visit.

And they are just about the only company out there REALLY working to make a better product by listening to their customers.

Forest River Again?

After 3 months I would buy another. Every manufacturer has issues and sure there are lemons but so far service and the dealership have been great. We had a few minor issues that were fixed up promptly.

I would (and have) buy another FR, as long as the the floor plan worked and it felt as well built as a similar competitors TT. However, next time I'd buy from the cheapest place I could find. My local FR dealer has been useless in any requested help.

I am the same, after 3 months I would buy another.
The couple of minor issues we had, the dealer took care of right away.
We haven't had to talk to FR about anything yet, the dealer just tells me to bring it right in and they will take care of it and any paperwork.
Sounds like from reading some other posts, we found a good dealer.

Don’t judge Forest River by the issues with one unit in just one of the many brands that fall under the Forest River label. I’m on my third Forest River fifth wheel and I’d buy another in a New York minute. As a matter of fact after attending my 2nd FROG (Forest River Owner’s Group) rally in Goshen I won’t even consider anything other than a Forest River product. They are committed to customer satisfaction.
