Can anybody here come even close or top that?

Congratulations, Herk!!

Keep posting Herk, you're doing a great service to RVers. My only question is why would you have a picture of some ugly guy as your profile pic.

That is TOTALLY unfair to Herk. The Herk bashing is totally uncalled for. He has done his level best to help folks with problems. You should try following his example. I am very grateful for his expertise and the volume of info he is very willing to share.

Warranty service is NO SOLUTION for crappy engineering (or maybe none) or for slipshod assembly. If the design is well done for production before anybody starts cutting metal or sawing wood, the design quality will shine through even if the assembly folks are sub-par. Our GT325 is an '02, so it's coming up on 10 years old. This is our third season with it. We have had very few issues, a rotted slide topper let water in before we spotted it and I had to build replacement cabinets for over the dinette and sofa. We've got issues with things held in place by adhesives, where the adhesive is letting go.

I was disgreeably surprised by the way the overhead cabinets were attached. With three full-length square metal tubes forming the ceiling structure, the cabinets weren't attached to them, but to the lauan plywood skin over the styrofoam ceiling insulation. I only found two screws in each cabinet that attached to structure.

Overall, we're OK with what we have. Satisfied overstates it a bit, and happy is off in the distance. A couple more seasons and we'll probably quit the game as retirement funds dwindle - unless there's a massive surge in the stock market!

Lots of crabby and critical people on this thread. We've had our Rockwood for a full season now and yes, we've encountered some problems with the strength of the shelves and the failure of a closet rod. There are trade-offs when you buy a lightweight TT. My DH is super handy, so he just reinforced the shelves and devised a new, stronger way to keep the closet rod in place. You want all of your walls made with 1/2" plywood and your shelves too? Then expect to pay more and to have your TT weigh a lot more.

Think about it.....we take these giant shoeboxes and attach them to our truck and traverse bumps, potholes, etc. that almost knock your teeth out. And yet you expect everything to stay in place and be perfect? Naivety at its finest there. There are reasons we carry a tool box with us everywhere we go.

As for the comments about Herk, they are totally uncalled for. He is here helping people on a daily basis. He reaps no benefits except for the satisfaction he gets from helping about a fellow camper in need. To chastise him for that is childish and boorish.

I agree that the bash to Herk was totally uncalled for.

Perhaps someone should start a new thread, "I love my RV lifestyle, but my Forest River product, not so much."

I've talked to many RV'ers over the years that say they love their trailers but it's a funny thing, the more you talk to them the more you realize that it really isn't their trailer the love, it's the RV lifestyle they love.
