We have travelled in our 8329ss for three years. No problems that were created Forest River, but a few created by yours truly. Great Trailer.

No trailer is "camper-proof!"

We love our 8329SS...the floor plan works for us and we really like the "back-to-back" slide-outs in the living room. The only downfall is not being able to get to the fridge during stops but we have worked around that. The bathroom and bedroom are accessible while traveling. The issues that we have had could have happened with any RV. The dealer has been fantastic and that is what is important when buying new. We have experienced this with boat and RV ownership. This is the third Forest River that we have had and it's been by coincidence that they were the same manufacturer. Get what you like and make sure that you ask for the extended warranty, as it's very inexpensive, because the dealership may not inform you about it.

I want to thank everyone for their comments and suggestions. After serious consideration we have decided to go ahead and move up to the Rockwood! We were lucky to find a dealer "close" to us that has two in stock. The other bonus is that they come with great reviews and based on the condition of our current trailer will be offering top dollar on a trade in!

Just curious...how much "bounce" or movement do you feel in this TT after you are all setup? I've noticed some people in other threads talking about extra jacks to stabilize their rig ( not this model ).

You will feel some movement in ALL trailers. (unless put up on permanent blocks)
Some folks are affected by that slight movement more than others.

Added jacks in the center frame area helps, as does the addition of something like the JT Strongarm stabilizer systems.

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll have the dealer install the strongarm system before picking it up.

A decision you won't regret.
