We thank everyone for their advice, we have contacted FR and are awaiting reply. We will post results.
Yesterday we went to the Toronto RV show, lots of dealers and brands of trailers. Funny thing is there wasn't one Blue Ridge trailer in the show, we are taking that a very bad sign. One dealer we asked said he doesn't sell them anymore because of the amount of warranty issues he was having.

There was one Blueridge at the Toronto show yesterday. A 3125 RT. Nice layout with external kitchener and no bunks. I noted the drawer with the stove was beat up, the door on the kitchen bottom left corner frame is all bent to crap, sealing around windows coming off, taps loose, tv mount off centre to start with. The ability to use the kitchen with both slides in was a great feature.

All being said we do like our 8289 Rockwood. But the 360PDEK - Sierra Fifth with the deck, sliding door, outside kitchen is pretty cool. I would need a F350 to tow all 15,500 lbs though...

I am sure being able to use the kitchen with the slides in is great, however, due to the other problems you posted I would never find myself in a position to use the kitchen.

Other than that how was the show?
Did the "upgrade bug" bite you.........

The show was great. I would say 75% of the trailers where Forest River brands. there we're many park models, that is becoming a teen here. Get a 3 season rig instead of travelling when you retire.
The DR suites are quite nice in some ways, price though..
We had a 3703SS for 13 months and have only had the 8289 for 9 months so at this point we need to stay put, need more truck for more trailer.

"teen"?

I have not been out enough to notice the number of park models and I have only seen one windjammer type of unit.

Lots of people around here buy a spot of land build a pole barn type of cover and then park a large fifth wheel under it.

We have 2 factory's left in Ontario that make 12 ft wide park models. They setup many of these at every trailer show including double wides. We have a golden falcon park model ourselves, they went out of business for the final time in 2010. Many hear buy Titanium 5ers still. Command new prices compared too today's new units.
