Just got her home 2019 26dbh

Love the work I know Iíve seen some people disspointed with the craftsmanship of these forest rivers but I took about 2 hrs and thoroughly looked mine over and outside of a spot where they missed drilling the screw into the frame I saw it in the back storage area where they would drill down the board under the bottom bunk all else was great. Doors fit snug, all the caulking and weatherstripping was there slide moved in and out great as well as the awning, finish on all the inside woodwork was fine, and my dealer noticed scuffs on the door where the outdoor fridge sits and they ordered a new one to have it replaced and frankly the ď damageĒ they noted wasnít even a big deal to me so good on them. Canít wait to go camping in her as we just upgraded from a 19í kz no slide and we just outgrew it with a 4 and 5 yr old plus dog. And my 2013 f150 Towed it like it wasnít even there, it has the 3.73 5L and handled it great with the blue ox I had them install. So we thought we were getting a 2018 as thatís what we looked at but in the end it was a 2019 version looks like the 2018 I viewed on you tube and at our camper show and there was no upcharge and it has the double shower hookups as Iíve seen some only have the one right by the outdoor fridge so that another b9nus. So far couldnít be happier. Now hopefully the slide doesnít leak as Iíve seen is common with this model but I plan on buy8ng a squeegee and making sure itís totaly dry and clean before bringing it in and hopefully thatíll help

Congrats! We have a 2018 26dbh, the later model 2018 with the nicer steps, fireplace, and red stripe. We've had good luck so far.

I have the 2018 26DBH Limited. I'm curious to see what is different between the two model years.

Congrats on the new rig. Don't forget that a lot of folks who post on these forums are those with problems. Those (like my family) who are very happy with their FR product are out camping. I hope the new camper brings miles and years of good memories.

I agree. I love my FR. I am really happy with it and the quality. My happy place is simply camping!

Wishing you many happy trips in your 26DBH. We have a 2017 26DBH and have been very satisfied with it overall. It has made 4 roughly 1,000 mile round trips between Dayton, OH and Traverse City, MI and was kept in TC for 5-6 months last year while we stayed for several days and weeks. We did have the slide leak after our first trip when it snowed and all snow did not get removed before pulling in the slide. FR took are of it under warranty so we were pleased about that and have learned our mistake. Happy trails!!

I hope you and your family have many happy times in your new rig!! We bought ours so we could have the grand kids stay in the bunks. We have had some issues but I know that it is a price point trailer and fix what goes wrong. It will pay if your handy with basic plumbing and construction.

Happy travels!!

My guess from the research Iíve done is that my trailer has all the specs of the later 18í models here just now the 19í model. I have the upgraded front step, red stripe, small outdoor fridge with two burners which I understand came in on the later 18í models, I also have the double outdoor shower heads one on each side so thatís cool too otherwise the 19í looks exactly like the 18í on the inside with all the led lights and usb chargers

Thanks for the update. Mine is the later version. Ordered it in October. I took possession of it in December. Mine has all the upgrades that you mentioned. Plus a few more I added myself. Like a sliding silverware drawer, rolling drawer under double bunk, a hardwired surge protector and soon, a wine rack in the pantry closet.

Can u pm me on how you added the sliding silverware drawer and rolling drawer under the bunks. In our old camper due to its small size it had four stacked sliding drawers under the sink and I know that was a nice place to stash all the small stuff.
