Wink FEMA Cherokee WDT32BH????

Hopefully with the knowledge and experience of the helpful folks on this forum I can figure out what we've gotten into. We just purchased (in contract at this point) what we thought was a FEMA trailer built by Forest River. A little Googling pointed me to this forum and I think I've discovered it's a Cherokee model listed above. I'm a little confused as it shows the manufacturing date as November 2004 prior to Katrina which is what I thought these trailers were built for. I'm a RV neophyte so no doubt I will need to do some repairs. The unit visually appears to be in good shape but no doubt items like AC can be expensive to repair and then there's the question as to where to get the parts. I'd love to have an original owners manual if anyone can point me in the right direct. Thanks in advance to anyone that can shed light on my decision to head this direction

After Katrina, FEMA bought every trailer they could get their hands on from lots all over the country. You could easily have a trailer used as a FEMA trailer. After the storm, trailers started to be made just for FEMA. Stay away from those as the workmanship is awful and the materials worse. I had one in my yard for about 6 months until I could get them to take it away. I walked in it, looked around, walked out and never opened the door again. Your tax dollars at work.......

There is not much to an owners manual, what you want are the manuals for each of the applicances. Stove, refrigerator, heater, water heater and so on. You will probably need to contact each vendor on your own.

Hope you got one H----- of a deal

I have some friends I met down in Florida. We were able to run you VIN, just out of curiosity. I find the dealer's name a bit interesting. The warranty was never registered. Looks like you have a FEMA unit. See below.

Dealer Name: NORTH AMERICAN CATASTROPHE
Sold Date: 1/1/1900
Invoice Date: 11/30/2004

That's interesting. Wonder if you could register the warranty now?

Hey Muskegon. I hear you have awesome weather today.
Jan, Spring Lake native.

Actually, any Forest River dealer can do it. You can probably call the factory, also. I honestly don't think it's a big secret of Forest River who the original selling dealer is.

Weather in Muskegon is good today. Hardly a cloud in the... Oh, wait... There's one
