I'd advise you to check with your dealer about towing a boat behind any forest river product.
Most likely there will be no warranty if you do such a thing.
Just an fyi .
Good luck in your search
We love our sabre 5th wheel .

some states don't allow double towing.
also need to find out if the Cherokee frame is strong enough to tow.

Also double length limit varies widely state by state.

I knew I should have left all the double tow stuff out... I know that's it's legal where im traveling and dealer said it was no issue with anything else... Any opinions on the actual camper itself?

We have a Cherokee Grey Wolf, it has been good and bad. We have had to have work done on it a few times, and even sent it back to the factory this fall. I have been really pleased with the repairs, and the camping we have done in it. I would not hesitate to buy another FR product.
