I just pulled the wrong card. God willing we will always have camping, the best family time you can get, if you make time for it. My 7 yr old DD calls it home when we are out at the camp site. Gotta love her enthusiasm.
I second that for the great memories, many of mine the same as far as first bike rides without training wheels, first time fishing, deciding that lakes are way better to swim and play in vs. pools ( at least in July and August! ). I too have started to see the delamination issue. It started below my fridge (which I caught under warranty and in enough time that there are a couple marks the size of my finger nail) and now it is on the edge of my rear slide. I have contacted the dealer, they are contacting forest river to see what can be done. The "bubble" is right out to the edge of the trim, at least an easy spot to fix (hopefully).
I did not realize that delamination is a serious issue that has affected just about every brand I have seen, now that I know what I am looking for. $10,000 to $100,000 trailers, it is just crazy.
As I posted before, bring on the composites, there is no wood to rot although time will tell if there is an adhesive problem...
Needless to say, I am disappointed with my problems, the only solution to me seems to be a composite side (which are relatively new and unproven) or an airstream that can't delaminate ( both costing considerably more than the TT I purchased ).
May the delamination devil have mercy on all the TT owners in the world...
