So hoping that those of you that have or do own one can let us know what your experiences have been.
We own a 2014 Windjammer 3008. Every unit will have some problems...we've had things that had to be fixed, but, like you, we have a great dealer who has taken care of us. Dometic had a recall on some of the electric motors on the awnings (your should be OK, that was very early in the 2014 production runs) and there have been other issues, but Forest River and the dealership have stood tall and addressed every little thing that has come up...and don't get me wrong, there really haven't been very many. Most of the things we have had to get repaired have been changed/addressed on subsequent production runs.
We love our 3008. We've had it all over the southern part of the US, from Florida and Georgia to Texas, and over a lot of the Midwest. Great trailer!
Welcome to RV'ing, to Forest River, and to the forum. As far as seeing a lot of complaints on a web site from unhappy owners, remember, the happy ones aren't generally posting...
We, too, were at the Goshen International Rally earlier this month. There were sure a bunch of happy owners there.
Enjoy the new Windjammer and
