Wait! Wilmington RV in North Carolina has saved my faith in humanity. The owner went out to the unit and said...ask any question you want. I wanted to know what size tires, freezer, all girly things. Then he said that when I arrive he will have spent a couple of hours testing every single item in the camper. A non working propane tank isn't gonna do me any good. He is throwing in all hoses, electrical converters and everything else I need to camp that night. So we are driving a solid 12 hours next week. I have a deposit emailed to me already. Wilmington RV I am impressed with you.

Sounds painful. Makes me feel good about spending $2000 more with a local dealer who had our unit on the lot. They have even been good about getting to the warranty work so far.

Sampson killed 10,000 Phillistines with the jawbone of an ass... and millions of dollars in sales are killed each day with the same weapon...

Sorry for your troubles...

Family RV

Family RV in Palmyra, NY does not fit the bad dealer mode. They are very pleasant to deal with and very fair. Our Flagstaff was all prepped and ready to go when stated. Larry, the owner, bent over backward to make sure our delivery went without a hitch. We were given a tour of he facility and his mechanic went over the trailer with in detail. We would definitely go back. Another good dealer in NY is in Cicero. Their name is Caps "n" Campers and we had good luck there also.

Seems to me you've found a good manufacture, so it's about finding a good dealer. FR, nor any other manufacturer, controls how you're treated by a dealers customer service.
I can sympathize with your frustration... But it should be directed at those who are actually creating it.
The end.

Too many corners have been cut since the depression years between 2001 to now. They will only get worse, as the profit margins only get smaller and the inventories have to be kept to a bare minimum. There is a unit out there for you. Wait for it and it will fall in your lap. Go over it with a fine tooth comb three or four times and buy a two year warranty. Plus, I hope that you are a good fix it and repair person, if not, you will become one. If you like the floor plans of the Forest Rivers, there is a unit for you. But know that the 'cost' of a FR or any other manufacture will always be higher than the purchase price.

Good hunting.
Whoa there .... broad brushes being what they are, and what they do....

I am here to tell you that there ARE dealers out there that will bend over backwards for you/US. I'll put my dealer (Route 66 Certified BTW) up against any RV dealer out there, no matter the brand.

I have two other brand dealers right here in my home town....was NOT impressed with either of them or their brand.

So we drove 90 miles away to;

Bayou Outdoor Supercenter in Bossier City, LA which is absolutely AWESOME! We've bought two (new) RVs from them in the last year and could not be more happy with their sales, and service after the sale.

They have *earned* our business and our loyalty.
