Vengeance 306

How many vengeance 306 owners do we have out here and how is everything working for you. I have not had many problems but things have gone wrong from time to time.

Just finished our first season with ours and its working pretty well. Even had a chance to use the furnace one evening on our last trip.

Lust winterized for the recent freeze here in Dallas but she's locked and cocked, ready to pull out at the first decent long weekend the Mrs and I both have off again

We ordered a new 306 from the factory a month ago. It should be in the next few weeks. We are really excited about some of the upgrades with the 2014 models. I was hoping to see more vengeance owners here.

Think you will really enjoy, we did enjoy ours a lot.

That said, in the spirit of full disclosure we just traded ours in for a new unit from another vendor & it's not a toy hauler. We found we just weren't hauling the toys as much since we have been traveling with our kids (they have an Open Range) and camping adjacent to them and the grand-daughters.

Spending more time with the family and less with the toys.

Enjoy the vengeance, they are a nice hauler.

Thanks, we looked at various Toy Haulers for over a year and saw where there were several upgrades and improvements with the Vengeance over an 18 month period. We are excited as expected and feel as if we have made a good choice. Thanks for the reply and maybe we will see you out there sometime... Happy Hoosiers....

I am curious to hear what upgrades and improvements you noticed? The website still shows the 13's so I am curious. Thanks

Vengeance 306

The Forest River website does not list the upgrades nor do they have any new pictures. The website does show the change in the floor plan. I am confident that I can't identify all of them, but here are a few of the upgrades; they moved the entrance to the bathroom to the far right side wall. This created a center island that allowed the TV to be moved from over the door to the center island and down to a more comfortable height to view. The center island also allows for a bigger TV to be selected as an upgrade. They also added a fireplace under the TV. By moving the door to the far wall, it created room for a bedroom door to be added to the master bedroom, and it moved the toilet to the wall next to the sink. This gave more room for the shower and an additional cabinet in the bathroom. The counter tops were upgraded along with the kitchen sink fixtures. The sofa can now be upgraded to a set of four (4) recliners. They added tile to the floor. The construction and quality in the cabinet drawers and cabinetry appeared improved to us.
The only change we would have for the 306 would be to add 2 feet to the overall length and add that 2 feet to the garage. We just felt that the 2014 models overall quality and appearance had improved from the earlier models. We looked at several manufacturers and kept coming back to the Vengeance. I hope I answered some of your questions.

Thanks bsjohnson. I searched the web a bit and the first 4 or 5 pictures of 2014's still had 2013 layouts but I finally found pics of the new layout. It is much nicer. I wish they would have angled the fireplace and TV a bit towards the seating but regardless it's a much nicer look. I agree on the garage. I actually need a 12' but could possibly make a 10' garage work but not when you loose a foot for that wooden "thing"?? In general it looks like a nice unit. I currently have a flagstaff travel trailer and I would say after going to the Hershey PA RV show, my only generic complaint of Forrest river is every one had what I thought felt like a soft floor. When I waled in a fuzion or others and then went to an XLR, Columbus, or any other FR the floors feel almost spongy as does my current unit. I guess it's just the way they are made but just something I noticed. After seing these new pics the vengance is actually back on my radar. I agree with you and I did not care for the previous layout. Good luck with your new unit!

I'm new here but am glad I read the revisions on the 2014 floor plans. I really like the center island option. Of course with this being my first post I don't have a 306V....yet, but I will be shooting for a 2014 model and the price point is right on key with what i want to spend. Already getting good stuff out this forum.
