I have read on several forums about how bad the Cardinal is and the bad quality that Forest River produces. Well, I have a 2007 Cardinal 31RKLE and have used it only 4 times and we really love it. I had at the dealers for the customary 'punch list' but nothing serious. My DW loves the counter space on this model. I love the KING size bed. I have never had an "Air Pin" before but it seems to help on the Up/down movement. The TrailAir Suspension seems to help with the rough spots. The only thing I can complain about is the Concertone DVD player. The Subwoofer goes in and out as you are viewing a DVD. It does the same thing with a music CD.
I just wanted to say I love my Cardinal!
We are leaving on a 5 week vacation this September that will be approximately 6000 miles with 15 RV parks. I am sure this will do a real good ‘shake down’ of the unit.
