Talking Newbie Looking For Advice

My family and I have been advid users of a pop up and now decided to move to the luxury of a travel trailer. We are picking up our 2009 Wildwood LE 26tbss this week and I was looking for help or advice. I guess I was looking for reasurance that these are good campers and generally everyone is satisfied with their Forest River campers. Also any advice would be very appreciated.

Also, I would just like to say that I'm happy to have found a forum that everyone seems so helpful and plan to be a long time member.

Thank you

to the FRF. We will be glad to assist you in every way we can. Perhaps the best way will be for you to ask questions about things you are not sure of.

We have a 2004 Flagstaff 26RKS and have had good service from it. Most people will tell you that FR makes a good quality product and you should have good luck with yours.

Thanks for the advice. I did not have any general questions, just looking for reassurance before I spend this kind of money.

Welcome to FRF. You'll find the friendliest people here. We're all willing to help and will try and answer any questions you may have and before long you'll be jumping in answering questions for all the newbies.

While I don't have your model I have had only a few minor issues that I fixed myself with my unit.

First off, I don't think you'll find many RV's out there without some quirks. Most will be just minor stuff, and it's usually all covered under warranty on new units.

We are extremely happy with our Forest River Salem unit. After one year of use, I've only had a couple minor things that I've had to fix. I feel very confident that this is the best of the 3 previous brands of RV we've purchased. The Wildwood and Salem are very much alike.

Two thumbs up from me.

My family purchased a 2008 Wildwood Le 26tbss this spring and have thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a couple of minor issues that the dealer repaired. The tank monitoring system is a little flaky but overall it has been a great camper. I think you will be well satisfied with your new camper.

As long as you are handy, most problem can be fixed. There is no such thing as a perfect RV, they all come off of an assembly line which leaves room for error ether in installation of parts and material or tooling. The people here on the FRF are a great group for help and advice, so fear not ask will be glad you didhappy camping
