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).
