We also needed repairs to our unit that our dealer would not fix. We had 5 items that needed to be repaired before our warranty ran out at the end of
August. We left our trailer (2011 Sierra) with them for a week before we left for Goshen and only one item was fixed (a leaky faucet in the storage compartment) Our major problem (our air conditioner) was not fixed but instead got an excuse that the unit is to big and we need a secondary air conditioner. We happened to look at the new Sierra located at the rally and told the saleman about our problems. He immediately called the plant supervisor on his cell phone. He took our name & number and sent someone to check on the problem. On Friday we took the trailer to the plant and they fixed some of the problems, the biggest one being a complete new shower. The old one was not the proper one. Because we were short on time, they told us to come back next year and they would give us a second air conditioner (free) to fix the definate problem with our a.c. that the dealer said we did not have. Also they said they would fix the butcher job done by our dealer when they fixed our holding tank. I am both amazed and grateful for the service done by Forest River. I am also happy to be a FROG.

Well we made it home in good time with the fastest time ever through the border (about 3 minutes). We had a great time at the rally and were impressed by absolutley every thing about the rally. Bob and Cindy, Peter Liegl, the volunteers, the food, the entertainment, the Forest River techs, the vendors all the new people and old friends we met and who we will probably remember forever, all the work done at what must have been an enormous cost to Forest River and just everything about the rally. A first class event by first class people. It makes us proud to say we are FROGS. Thanks to everyone for everything, travel safe, talk up what a great company Forest River is and hopefully we will see you next year in Goshen. Old Guys

The mutha of all rallies !!!!!

Well, we made it back after four days to Jacksonville,FL after a great rally. The rally was a 10+. All the great food, great people from all walks of life. I have been many places and met many people in my life, but this rally takes the cake.
It was like one big family reunion. Your next door neighbor, where they were from Canada or Kentucky or Texas was new friends but like you had known the people for a long time.

I take my hat off and salute Bob & Cindy for the excellent job they did putting it all together. My congrats to those that assisted Bob and Cindy to make their job a little easier--to you many, BRAVO-ZULU as we say in the Navy "JOB WELL DONE".

To those technicians from many different divisions of Forest River that worked every day, starting around 7:30 AM & still on the job at 4 PM fixing, repairing, replacing many different aspects of the many RV present. For my Rockwood 8285WS, I got a new kitchen counter top, new microwave, new screen for kitchen window, new hitch hook up lights (2). The techs were fantastic. What work ethics.

To those that did not make it to the rally for some HOKEY excuse, you have no idea what you missed. By the way, there was about 237 RV units
at the rally. The county fair grounds where the rally was held was just about 99.8% full. But I understand the fair grounds has just recently purchased an additional 250 acres for more RV's next year, we will be looking for those that missed this rally and I know for sure the ones that attended this "FIRST FACTORY SPONSORED FROG RALLY" will be at the next rally for We will be there for sure.

SEE YOU THERE !

If I'm not mistaken, Bob said the info for the next Goshen Rally will be made public after the Tuscon and 3 stop Western Rally is finished. The way Bob and Cindy run these things, I don't blame them for waiting till 2011 is finished. Those two don't miss a thing.

The 2012 Goshen Rally will be knocking on our check books before we know it. I handed a pile of FROG brochures to my RV dealer in E Lansing this morning. They said they'd pass them out with all Forest River products.

The next Goshen Rally will be the first week of August, 2013. We'll probably start it a day earlier, on Sunday, but that's not yet been determined. (We'd love to do it earlier, but the entire month of July is pretty much booked with the Elkhart County Fair and preparations and teardown from it.)

More information will be coming sometime after the Dealer Expo, Tuscon Regional Rally, and Vegas / Canyon / Balloon trip are over.

And, to the lady who asked (you know who you are ), it is really going to happen.

Bob,

Lori and I can't thank you, Cindy and the Forest River team enough for the absolutely wonderful time we had at the Rally. Every aspect of the event exceeded our expectations - everything!

We look forward to seeing our new friends again at the 2013 Rally and meeting even more that we didn't have a chance to meet this year. As soon as you give the word our check will be in the mail. Hopefully we'll be able to reserve the same site. Please let us know if there's anything we can do to assist.

Thanks again. Until 2013 ...

Best regards,
Dave and Lori
