XLR Viper 305v16

Just joined the forum to follow and learn about the 305v16. Initially very excited given the unique garage size and weight specs, but concerned about some of the recent posts. Have these issues been corrected to your satisfaction? Please share any thoughts. Thank you.

Still waiting for Forest River to do something about the mattress and the black stains on the tan carpet from the living room slide being misaligned. We are not happy that these issues could not be resolved by 2 dealers especially when the trailer was only days old when the issues were discovered.
We tow it with a 2007 Chevy 3500 diesel dually and it strains that at times. It's a big, big trailer.

Getting closer to pickup

Got a appointment to pickup at dealer Sat. Will be using the "PDI" checklist. Three reasons: 1) So I will know how to properly care and use everything, 2) if there is a problem it can be fixed, 3rd) save time and money in all the logistics if there is a problem. But I guess there is actually four. And that is: 4) to see if I can have an opportunity to turn a few negative comments on the 305V16 to positive. I just wonder how many 305V16 have been made, how many have been purchased, ... My wife and I look forward to using it.

We still have 3 issues not resolved.
1. Mattress
2. Non working light over bed
3. Black stains on the tan carpet from slide out.

It has now been 6 months and Forest River has not resolved the problems. Now you all know what to expect from Forest River....
