They are listing on RV Trader for $99K and I know our local dealer is selling them for less than that.

Forest River can be confusing sometimes. It was stated at one time that one of the reasons the Trilogy by Dynamax was discontinued was because FR wanted to maintain the Cardinal as its flagship. Now they release the Riverstone which is a very nice looking upscale unit with a lot of similarities to the Trilogy.

Yup, that's what we were told in 2014 as well.

Indeed. My understanding is FR is going after the Mobile Suite/Heartland brands

I thought FR would have learned by now that membrane roofs, wood floors, and pink fiberglass insulation is NOT the way to go. It's hard for me to believe they can sell this unit with those cheap products used in the construction.
Hopefully, they will do a better engineering job and not run the wiring harness, water lines, and propane hose right in front of the wheels where they will be ripped out when a tire blows as it's done on mine TWICE. Just one design flaw that needs to be addressed. But the wood floors!!! Please. Future water damage for sure. IMHO and personal experience.
