We've been in our 282RK for 2 seasons now. We're seasonal and I use it when I am at my off site office. So I usually spend 2 1/2 - 3 weeks a month for 5 - 6 months in it.
We really like this layout, just the 2 of us, it is a solid trailer. I do whish there was a slide in the bedroom as getting dressed for work every morning needs a little more floor space.
No major issues and very few minor ones.
Yes the pantry door doesn't open to a full 90 degrees. Some folks think that's a deal breaker or a major issue. Try it and see if you can live with it. We certainly can.
The other issue with the pantry doors is sometimes they will pop open in transit. Always crawl in and make sure they are closed before extending the slide -- door replacements have been known to be required if they are open.
Like all TTs, they will have some bounce when you're walking around in them. The stabilizer jacks are just that -- stabilizers, they are not designed to bear the weight of the trailer to level or prevent significant movement. For added rigidity, add a scissors or bottle jack on each side in the middle.
I would buy and recommend this TT to anyone. I also have not (perhaps I am in the less than 1%) had anything but help, support, and good relations with both my dealer (Avalon, Medina, OH) and Forest River themselves.
