So far our interaction with customer service has been excellent.
Jim, really not an orphan. Forest River and Dynamax are still in business. They just stopped manufacturing 5th wheels.

We have, in fact we're going to pick it up next Thursday. If you're looking for one, you might look at Fun Town in Cleburne, TX. They have several and are dealing.

We also purchased from Fun Town in Cleburne. They really do deal. The Service Department on the other hand is not so hot.

2015 Trilogy 38WT

We drove almost 900 miles to buy our new home and are very happy with it. It doesn't have a fiberglass roof but the brite tech that we had in our motor home and prefer. We got it with options that we wanted and others that we added and still have it at a better price than the Mobile Suites and like it better than any Mobile Suites we looked at. It spent some time in an independent shop getting some adjustments that should have been done a t the factory and were not and my only complaint with Dynamax would be that they were a bit slower at approving the work than I would have liked. We bought the unit in February after looking at the Mobile Suites, Redwood, Lifestyle and many others. I don't know why they will discontinue the Trilogy, but we're very happy that we got one before they did.

StoneyG, would you mind sharing what adjustments? Just trying to know what to look for if we decide to get one, been reading all the past posts listing problems folks have had to inspect those areas during the walk thru, thanks. Also anyone else reading along feel free to chime in with things to check that you might have had issues with.

Two of the three slide out toppers were too short making them start to pull out of the rails.

We opted to have a third AC and second awning added to the included prep packages. Some of the wiring was missing in the prep packages.

There are LED lights in the main awning that weren't wired correctly.

The dishwasher is incompatible with the generator inverter so a switch was added so that power to the dishwasher could be disconnected when the generator is running. If we don't have shore power we're not going to run the dishwasher anyway.

The top roller fixture for the closet door was improperly installed.

This is our 5th RV. We took it to a local trusted independent service dealer to add the AC and awning and he also gave it an inspection, looking for potential problems. If we were to buy a 6th the first thing I would do is to take it to a trusted service dealer and pay him what would be a modest amount in my opinion, to do an inspection to capture and correct problems with workmanship.

Not to hijack Rennie's thread. There is a growth industry for RV Inspection and Repair, aka Mike Holmes of the RV Land. That money would be better spent than prep fees at dealers.

We also looked at the Trilogy for our next 5er but not at the time yet to buy a new TV and finance the trailer.

Found this other forum thread related to roof choices. For our enviroment, full sun and salt air, fiberglass was an abosolute. Probably not as important in milder climates or for those that can keep it covered.

Brite Tec vs Fiberglass roofs

Ok thanks so far, the ones we are looking at do not have toppers or 2nd awning, yet but if we go with it planned on trying to get it done at factory around the time of the FROG rally. Does not have a dishwasher plus the wife does not want it. Keep info coming, still trying to work our best deal.

We just bought a 2015 trilogy 39fb and love it! Advice though.....be sure if you want a washer/dryer stackable to let them install it.....it's very difficult with the space you have to work with! Also, our paint is peeling around the top around where the sides wrap around to the roof. Dynamax said it will be covered under warranty but we live in it so its out of our pocket to pay for hotel costs while being repaired and getting someone to pull it there (we don't have a truck to pull it)! The nearest dealer from us is about 60-80 miles
