Wow! The above post would be much easier to read with a little punctuation.

I would not buy a Forest River again. The walls will delaminate on you and they will not cover it, they leave you hanging

We have the 8329SS, 2013 model. We love it. We took the chairs out that came with it and replaced them with recliners. We also removed the table to add additional space for our dogs. Great unit. We had a few issues when new nothing major.

Have had our 8329ss for a little over a year now. Used 38 nights and a little over 4000 miles. Tow with a 2013 tundra double cab. Very few problems found the first trip out. All got fixed under warranty on one visit.

Beachcamper I will be taking my first extended trip in 4 weeks going from Florida to Central New York. Quick question for you on trips did you check air at each gas stop?

OswegoLion when we travel longer distances like from Charleston, SC to Dayton, OH or Charleston to Miami we only walk around and look at tires for bulges or whatever at gas or rest area stops. Have only checked tires first thing in the morning after leaving from home or a campground after being there several days. We carry a small 12 volt air compressor for the tires and truck airbags.

I think it's the slime brand from Wal-Mart. I did splice a 25 foot piece of lamp cord into the the power cord so it would reach from the truck cigarette lighter to the trailer tires. The compressor has a digital display that can be programmed for the pressure you want. It shuts off when the preset pressure is reached
