Floor plan was perfect, the amenities were abundant and well thought out, and the price was very competitive. Like many of you, we do many of the RV shows, and try and keep current with trends and what's new in creature features. We knew the 832IKBS was "the one" the moment we stepped into it. I researched the model extensively beforehand, but nothing compared to seeing it in person.

We purchased it in mid-July, have camped with it for around 35 days so far this year, and not a single issue, warranty or otherwise. This is the first RV we've ever owned that hasn't had some shakedown cruise issues to deal with. Keeping our fingers crossed!

We looked for almost 2 years and attended several RV shows and dealers. Floor plan was first priority and the 832IKBS nailed what we looking for. Large bedroom area, good working kitchen, proper placement of the TV etc.
Fit and finish exceptional and everything works. I have run a new bead of silicone in the shower on the outside wall and fixed the loose wooden panel on the fridge.
Over 4,000 kms on the unit since purchasing and very pleased.
Will be winterizing the trailer this weekend.

A tour of the factory in Millersburg, In. convinced me of the quality for a light weight unit. This, coupled with Forest River's service reputation clinched the deal for me.

Over 30 days on the road and 4,000 miles and the only thing I needed was a new remote for the fireplace. Absolutely no issues. I'm still waiting for the first shoe to drop.

Because I live in Flagstaff, and wanted a camper that also had a deck for my quad. Rockwood has the same layout but the interior of the Flagstaff seemed nicer, and it just seemed the right fit.

We were at an RV show and saw the trailer we now own. They made us a deal we couldn't refuse and we bought it 2 months later. Got treated like a second class citizen at the other dealer we saw a unit we were interested in so it was thier loss not ours (BTW it was not a Forest River brand unit). SO I guess it was the right unit in the right place at the right time for us, did not even know Rockwood existed at the time or who Forest River was for that matter.

we liked the floor plan on our flagstaff classic super lite. have not had any trouble with anything so far. ours is a 2009 model.the 5th wheel pulls great. we have camped just over 50 nights so far this year in it.

Stepped in, walked thru, looked at DH and said;

This is it. Go find a salesman.

It just fits us. Love the island kitchen, adore the big bathroom in the V nose.

A huge factor for us, while shopping, was that we could actually watch TV without looking to the left or right.

We both have neck injuries. What the heck is with the floor plan designers that they so seldom place the entertainment system in a straight on viewing position?

I don't want to have to sit at a banquette to watch TV!

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?

X2 regarding the rare and unhealthy viewing angle of a lot of tt or 5th wheels.
