same problem in same area as what ktmpj posted. Mine cracked again after repairs from factory we noticed this after dealer contacted me that it was ready for pick up. Once we opened slides we noticed the cracks in same area.

4traveling ...How long had you owned your RV before the cracks appeared the first time? You are seriously saying that the cracks appeared again after repair from the factory? There is obviously more going on with this that Forest River is admitting to!

4traveling...That is unbelievable! So did they return it without even attempting to repair it or did the same thing happen again after an actual repair??? What is Forest Rivers' response? This really scares me. Mine is to go back to the Factory in January. How long did they have your unit for repair?

ktmpj No all repairs were completed new panels installed and more supports added to frame. RV was at the factory for 4 weeks. Forest Rivers did stand behind there product and working with (dealer at home Berryland RV) I changed to Columbus 320RS. I am happy with the outcome.

Glad to hear you are now happy with a different unit. This is obviously more of a serious structural issue for them to have made repairs and the same thing happen again. That's just not right!

The 327 and recently the new 333 were on the top of my upgrade list but there seem to be too many issues. I realize the posts here may represent a small and vocal portion of total Wildcat owners but I am going to search elsewhere where the odds seem to be better.
Currently I'm leaning to the Silverback 33RL, Columbus 320RS and Elkridge 32TSRE, all with similar floorplans. Just trying to get an idea on where I might find better value and quality.
