Where are all the Wildcats?

Been out camping 4 different times now. Ohio once and 3 times in Tennessee, with a couple more trips planned this year. Where is everyone. Passed a Wildcat on the road one time, but, have not seen one in a campground. Are there just not that many on the road. Love ours by the way.

FR makes so many different brands the pool gets watered down and the odds of seeing your brand go down.

Apparently not many of us out here. I only saw 4-5 Wildcats including mine at last year's International Rally in Goshen... was told there were 8 Wildcats there out of 750 or so units.

Wildcat Maxx units are built in California, I've been told... and all others are built in Wakarusa, IN as of last summer (I've been told).

Click here: Wildcat Fifth Wheels / Travel Trailers by Forest River RV

Wildcats are shipped to the blue region. Wildcat Maxx units are shipped to the white region.

10 years ago there were quite a few Wildcats on the road. It was a very popular FR brand and there was even a dedicated forum (now defunct) on the Internet with over 4000 members. At that time, Wildcat was a hot selling brand. That was also about the time that Forest River lost their way with that brand and things started going downhill fast. Dealers quit carrying Wildcats, users were having serious issues with their fifth wheels, etc.

In 2003 the longest fifth wheel made by Wildcat was 30 feet long. By 2012 I donít think they offered anything under 33 feet and some units were 40 feet long. In 2003 we bought our Wildcat 27RK for $17,500 and it offered a lot of bang for the buck. Four years later in 2007 we ordered our 2008 Wildcat 28RKBS to get a bedroom slideout with the front closet and paid $32,500 and some dealers were asking $38,000 for that unit. Thatís quite a price jump. The 2008 had so many issues that I actually thought about giving up on the RV lifestyle.
