I have completed my first impressions of our HG 337BAR,I found only 2 minor problems one was the left slide was out of adjustment on the lower corner and was sticking out about 1/2 at best.and the other was the table came loose from the wall next to the sofa.Tires are the chinese type with a 8/2015 installation at the factory.My dealership seems to be on there toes for they have started PDI'ing it will power both shore and deep cycling our batteries,and adding some propane to the system to start the water heater up.Leak checking with water up to pressure.Refrigerator is up and running as well for 2 days now.And a/c/heater has been cycling through to maintain 70 degrees.It has been a good ride with this Forest River dealer so far.I return on Wednesday for a walk through.

A update on this 337BAR,it seems that this unit was being sold to another couple and wasn't reported to the manager.So they are searching for another unit for us,and said they would make it up to us.They have agreed to lower there price another 1000.00 dollors,so in one way we were bummed,but in another way we are quite happy.Oh well,we are not in a hurry.

So we received our new 2016 FR Heritage Glenn 337BAR,and brought her home.After our PDI with our new dealer,we found only a couple of problems,3 day/night shades one of the strings on all 3 was not tied in to the knob on the walls next to the shades,and a small tear about 1/4 inch in length on the roof's rubber membrain at the edge of the roof ladder that needed a small patch and sealant applied.All appliance's worked great at PDI,and then retested after a 981 mile road trip to shake her in.Still all appliance ran trouble free.On thing I did notice was that both batteries had really cheap fitting's on them.And the cables were to long that the RV dealer could not put the battery vent box's on.So on our next trip we plan to stop buy and have then cut them to the correct lenght so the battery vent box top and fit properly.And other than it was really dirty for the snow and rain on the highway,a good cleaning and a waxing is making her look like she just left the factory floor.Furance work's well.And we have pick up some registar's to play with the air flow into each area of the trailer..All in all it was a really nice trip and feel really good.Can wait to use it for a couple of months at times to really appreciate it's design,features.

Yes metakid65,after looking at the LP storage area I noticed a small dent on the lip of the lower cutout of the door area,this I assume was were the dealership had it's waterloo with the LP tanks.Hope no fingers were injured.....

Congrats! On your new "home away from home" My husband and I have been looking at RVs for well over a year and almost from the beginning set our hearts on the 337 bar.... From the moment we walked in, it just appeared so nice and open and love it's unique look with the "pizza oven" feature.....and found for RVs that size we couldn't beat the price. So we recently made the decision to do it and after a bad experience with CW and finally getting our deposit back we will be going to the bank this week and taking our money to purchase the 2016 HG 337 Bar from a dealer we feel we can trust, who we have spoke to and has it on the lot, so hopefully we will be bringing our "2nd home" home in the next couple of wks.... We are so excited!
I have noticed since we started out looking at the 2015 model that FR lightened the exterior color and did away with the bedroom headboard....2 things Im not happy about😕 But I do love the led lighting they added around island!
I noted in another thread about the 3337 Bar several comments related to problems with the stove hood exaust and what seems to be a poor ventilation fan, setting off the smoke alarm for many owners.....I think one owner just decided the fan was cheap and replaced it....I am thinking by the dates on the post many of these 337 Bar owners may possibly have 2015 models.....Don't know if maybe FR could possibly have realized this issue and hopefully improved it, Im sure this is just wishful thinking on my part, I did not ask any questions yet in that thread about the exact year of their 337 Bars (as it was very late when I was reading the comments) I just know they were new to them, but that could be a 2015 model.... Have u experienced any issues when cooking or have u been able to use yours enough yet to know?
