Happy camper

I dont comment a lot here but am on the forum almost every day trying to learn.

What i find is an awful lot of unhappy people, and in some cases itvseems rightfully so.

I just wantvto report how happy we are with our Flagstaff. Purchased new
In February of last year, it got a pretty good workout last year. And going to have a good one this year, with over 150 days anticipated. We have had virtually no problems with the trailer. Every thing works, stuff isn't breaking is good. A few little things yes, but nothing serious. I am not counting the blowout last year ... A major pain. But i dont think thta reflects on the trailer itself, should FR put better tires on, yes, but the overall quality of the trailer is still very high in our opinion.

So put us down as satisfied campers, as the Great Adventure of Rick And Linda continues.

having been on a variety of RV forums, for over 8 years now, i've found that there are two kinds of posters that dominate the forums.

one group are those looking for info. buying info, repair info, operation info and so on.
the other group are those with warranty-related problems to complain about.

the biggest group that doesn't post, are those that AREN'T having problems.
and this group is the largest of all RV owners, based on the number of RV's sold versus those having warranty-type problems.

very rarely does someone post: "Hey, just want everyone to know that our RV isn't having any issues and i'm very satisfied with my purchase!"
you're one of those rare ones.

We have been very happy with both of our Forest River RVs. Our average annual use is around 62 nights camping per year, with very few minor problems.

Our Cherokee has been problem free and still looks great after 7's not towed, so less wear and tear...but still, nothing broke since we got it two years ago. Also, I've been shopping and it seems heartier than a lot out there. More solid stepping I would say.

I'd say she's ridiculously good looking for not being brand new!
