We have trusted the process, and been burned! I would definitely make the trip to inspect the unit! We have five kids and can't pull them out of school for an extended PDI but we will not accept anything less than perfection. The BS offer of an extended warranty is a pitiful excuse! If they were so confident in their product they would buy it back and know that their happy customers will purchase from them again!

Wow, I really feel bad for you. It would seem that at the end of the day, the RV industry for all its chest pounding about how good a product they produce is just like the product they produce. CRAP!!!! I have a Forest River product that is about to go through the lemon law process where I live. I have had enough!!!!! I would never take that trailer back and your attorney is right. Do not sign anything!! Its too bad that America can't produce a better product. I don't think most people would mind paying a little more for a better product that doesn't come apart one month after you get it. I wish you good luck!!!

man I though I had problems, the dealer fixed a ton of my issues and I spent my own time and and bunch of my own money to fix my everything they said (dealer and factory) was not a problem... I did a better job, thank you... with ownership under 1 year I was pissed that I bought this unit in the first place and many times I wanted to drop a huge tree on it..just kidding...

Speechless sad to be treated that way.
It's strange how someone can purchase an RV and not have a single thing wrong and someone else has theirs literally falling apart. Same make and model, same plant and probably the same personnel building it.
Good luck and I hope it all works out to your satisfaction.

Man.....this sux.
I was thinking about ordering my 36qbok this next week, got all my options and special build items all figured out.
I guess I'll see how it goes with Doug and ya'lls camper first.
Not a good feeling at all with these troubles happening so frequently it seems on such an awsome camper.

We feel everyone's pain here. Sounds like several of us have 60k yard ornaments. I got afraid to use our camper at the end and even asked my dealer if this camper was safe to haul to the factory, every time we moved it something else fell apart on it and we never went camping over 50 miles from home for this reason. I would suggest to anyone that is looking at buying a high end camper to do there research much better than we did. We are not rookies at this and have purchased 5 other new units in the past from a different manufacturer and have had zero problems that the local dealership could not repair. All I can say here is that I will personally never own another Forest River product. We have even talked about just getting rid of it and just taking the beating, which is sad. We don't feel safe with this unit at all and I sure don't want to hurt anyone else in the process. Good luck to everyone fighting the same battle, we hope you win or they make you whole some how.

I'm sorry for all of your troubles but thanks for posting them. The Sabre and the Crusader were on the short list as we are going to buy within the next couple of months. After hearing this type of horror story I think I will look a little closer at the Heartland products
