Rockwood's quality control is sometimes an issue, but so is Dodge's, Fords, Jayco's, Microsoft's, Dell's, Maytag's, and Bic's.... All products have problems from time to time. The RV industry, in general, seems to have a higher occurrence than many other industries, but I don't see FR or Rockwood as being any higher or lower than anyone else.

For me, it's perfect. I love to modify and "tinker". I find things that need repair or improvement, I fix them, and then I try to post so that others look to see if they have the problem, and fix it before it becomes a safety issue.

As for Herk...... There's only ONE Herklopedia, and he lives here helping all. I've learned a LOT from his posts and the references that he's guided so many of us to.

So, Herk, just it-case I haven't thanked you RECENTLY, Thank You, once again!

As a new RV owner- this forum and Herklopedia is where I turn to first for advice and answers to questions. I was a lot better prepared when I picked up my RV because of the many Herk articles I have read. Thanks Herk and I hope you keep the information coming.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to Hob for being personally responsible for adding over 100 "thank You" rep increases in 24 hours. Before I get a swelled head, you can go back to just thanking me when I acutally help you. My inbox was getting full and I am working off the iPhone till I get home tonight.

Thank you again for making this such a great board to belong to.

Herk,

I do want to apologize for the second post kicking at you. I only meant to take one try. I thought I had a senior moment and didn't hit the submit reply button. I guess I was faster than the electrons were running that day. Both posts appeared today. I'm subject to senior moments. However I think the list I posted under your "I love my Forest River product" is way to long for a trailer that had only been moved from Elkhart, IN to Walcott, IA.

I was told about not needing to seal the tub but my walls are covered from tub to ceiling. I may not have been right with the tires but to sell a trailer that had been on their lot too long, Cheyenne Camping Center agreed to split the cost of new tires with me. I had, by measurement, 3/32 of an inch scrubbed off in that short distance. Since then I have also filled the gap in the roof vents with foam to enhance the insulation gap they left when installing the vents. The count on the screws that needed repaired is now up to 37. You don't consider what I did something that should have been done by the factory? I'm still less than enchanted with the quality control from Forest River.

Once again, I apologize for the second swipe at you but it has been ugly hot and I was disgusted with Forest River. You were a target of opportunity at the time.

Best Regards,

Bill (Hob)

I want to thank Herk's wife for letting him use the forum ALL day, and thus giving us all great information.

It just shows who has the brains in the family. He is out of her hair so she can do what she wants. Smart lady!

No need to apologize (but thank you for it anyway). I think the other members were more upset about your slap down than I was. Folks forget that the board has no formal relationship with Forest River and we are just campers like you. Some of us have had problems with our campers or (in my case) their dealers that brought us here looking for solutions.

We try to keep the board as a place for folks to get help. I have to emphasize the word HELP. Griping and complaining about problems may make you feel better, but it does not help you or any one else; and just plain bums folks out.

If you have a specific problem and we can help with it we will. Sometimes a "lurking" (or overt) rep will jump in and save the day (just happened very recently in fact).

It has been pretty clear that there are always two sides to every issue and when a member comes on and his first post is a 2 page rant, most often the response is "sorry dude" and that's it. Many times the OP never returns to even look at the "sorry dude" post.

If you come here looking for help, you will get it to the best of the memberships' ability. Our satisfaction comes from knowing we "gave it a shot." Hopefully we helped you.

Yes, I do love my Forest River product. I was shocked at how inexpensive a brand new off the assembly line rolling house was ($27,500 fully equipped with all the options I wanted). It suffers a lot of abuse at my hands and still gets me to the campground and back. I fully expect to get many more years of camping out of it.

I had some problems (luckily nothing major) but for the money, my Flagstaff (Identical in floorplan, quality and manufacture to Rockwood) was a bargain.

If you hate your camper, then trade it in on a Jayco or Keystone.
They are made right down the street.
They also have forums (though I think ours is much better).

Sigh, I like that picture...
OK, I will look for a more recent one.
Preferably one with a beer in it.
