6-8 weeks is very typical for this time of the year!

Our issues were things like inside 2 scuffs in the wallpaper, loose interior steps, loose storage door hinges/ stripped screws, door catches not lined up, wardrobe slide molding was too long & caught on carpet, outside -the underside of the front end molding was not attached (we noticed a couple more Wildcat 5ers at dealer like that). This is the part you stand under when opening the battery storage area. Hope this helps.

Our issues where bad speaker, landing jack keep blowing fuses (landing leg was slightly bent) they replaced leg, window on main slide was not flush on one side you could see gasket replaced window, no caulking around one of the marker lights, bed room slide was not sealing off completely at the top they adjusted slide out. Caulking around antenna had a gap in it. The dealership that we bought the camper from did a great job of getting the repairs done and taken care of us.

I had a friend who bought a new camper last year (non Forest River) that had several problems with it, so he asked the dealer why he was having so many issues when his last camper he had no issues. The dealer asked him if he bought the camper new he told him no I bought it used. The dealer told him the reason he didn't have any problems with the other camper is because someone had already worked out all of the bugs out. I think there is definitely some truth to that statement. I think no matter what brand of camper you buy will have issues.

Hey Chris,
How long before delivery does the factory know when your trailer will be built. It has been 4 weeks and just thought I should have a build date by now. Thanks

It's always best to contact your dealer for an update on this! Ask them to speak with their specific factory representative to get a production offline date from the factory. Good luck! And thank you for your business!
