We are into our third year of ownership of the trailer in our signature. We have only seen several other XLR units on the road while traveling. The smaller hyper-light trailers seem to be the most popular.

We love our trailer since it was custom desiged for us by Forest River. They deleted the Murphy bed in the garage area and added a single queen happi-jac bed. The outside entry door was moved forward and replaced with a window. FR also changed the shades for us.

We are happy campers!

Have a great time with your XLR trailers and fifth wheel toy haulers!!

I'll have to look up your model number... haven't heard of it till now. Got any pictures? I ordered the 29HFS with 2 seat recliner ILO dinette and with the single bed in the garage with happi-jac. Mine is just standard with two entry doors (I want to add windows to doors)... standard mini-blinds in the garage (and over the sink) but pull down shades on the rest. I like mine too. I love having a place out of the weather for the bike.

This may have become a standard feature after you ordered yours this way--ours didn't even have a Murphy bed option, came standard with the queen happi-jac bed.


WW-great minds think alike: we ordered ours with the 3-recliner couch instead of the dinette. Then, when we lowered the happi-jac, we found that FR gave us a folding table on the bed to use as a dinette (presumably in the garage.) I thought that was cool, I didn't know I was getting one of those!

Oops... 3 seat recliner... I didn't get a table top. It would have been a more useful option to have ordered the dinette / jack-knife bed option rather than the large bed only. It is a huge bed... the width of the garage and about 6 feet wide. The mattress should be upgraded, if it is to be used.

The wife and I are close to buying a '14 395Amp. You can read reviews and comments for weeks straight and get a mixed bag of thoughts. For the most part people seem to be happy with them. Anyone out there just say to absolutely stay away from them? We are looking to purchase up in OH so it would be a haul to get there from OK and we would hate to be disappointed.

I love my XLR. Yes have had some problems but wouldn't trade her on anything. I haven't been in another camper that has the same feeling and flow inside

We just bought our 29hfs, love the floor plan. Nothing like it out there that we ran across. We're thinking of a 5th wheel, but not a fan of the shower in the master.

A perfect TH doesn't exist, but mods are fun... armed only with simple hand-tools, an engineering degree and a couple of hundred hours (kidding, aren't I?) my 29HFS is just right for me. Many agree with me, and the list is growing. But each of us are so amazingly different. I would say (dmnewland) don't just look at the 395Amp... especially don't ask for advice ... sit in it... lay down in it... imagine life in it... take your time... as much as it takes. Balance needs with wants and lean more towards "wants" and you will make the best choice. Don't do like I did, make sure Momma is happy too . Mine will get over it, your's may be different.
