Question Need help reviewing Surveyor TTs

In April of 2014, we bought a Surveyor Sport 240RBS. We are considering trading up to a Surveyor 285IKDS. There were many warranty problems with our first. Can anyone compare the two? Of just offer insight? Thanks from Jim!

I have had a lot of little problems with mine, but nothing major. I did have to replace my kitchen sink, but that was my mistake. That being said, these things are built on the same line by the same people with materials from the same vendors. It stands to reason that the quality will be just about like the first one... unless you get one built on the Monday after the Super Bowl or some other major event... and the work force just ain't quite up to par. Hold on to your shorts if that happens...

We'll be trading up soon, and I have to say that nothing I've seen has me shopping any Forest River brands. I wish you good fortune with whatever you decide. We've decided on a Winnebago Ultra Lite 28DDBH. We'll probably order it the way we want it in January. I'm hoping to fix less on it than I have my Surveyor... but I am not holding my breath.

We have a 240RBS we bought in July 2014, and so far not too many issues. The biggest was the sink sprayer breaking on the first trip, and some loose moldings I fixed myself. Other than that nothing too major. Oh it seems maybe the shower is draining into the black tank instead of the gray tank. Good luck whatever way you go!
