Great to hear it all went well! We all remember our first (or first in a while) tow!

Aside from the door lock not working correctly (deadbolt still works) I have had no problems. I can tell you that what you'll find on the internet is a very small sampling of Surveyor owners (or any other brand).

The quality of materials and craftsmanship, we found, is superior to most brands in the price range (even a number of other FR brands).

I STRONGLY recommend the Surveyor, especially the SC321BHTS

Surveyor Cadet VS. Surveyor Sport

Was looking at this model online. Thinking about up-sizing from a Surveyor Sport SP-295 (single slide out)...

Have you had any major issues so far?

Also, how does your F-150 pull it? (Assuming you have a weight dist. hitch/sway bars and electric brakes.)

Anyone know the major differences between the Sport and Cadet models? Are the walls thinner (R7 vs R9), etc.?

Thanks!

I have had a couple of issues.

First was a bad wire from the Jensen head unit to the TV, and the Bauer door handle is bad.

Second is I had 2 lines rub together in the A/C unit and leaked coolant so my A/C is currently not working.

Both of these issues should be easy to have fixed under warranty but the dealer is being ridiculous to deal with and it is probably a couple months out to get them repaired.

As far as the F150 pulling it I have zero issues. I have the Max-Tow package and the 3.73 Rear End along with the Eco Boost and it pulls great. Utilizing the Equal-i-zer and couldn't be happier.

Thanks for the update. I have the tow package on my Tundra with the 4.1 Rear End, as well as a Curt weight distribution and sway control. May get a second sway control... my currenst SP-295 is like a sail in the Oklahoma wind.

bought a brand new surveyor cadet 321. first trip out, my son took it to Koa at South Padre Island,tx. the air conditioner quit working and the slide out did not work properly, tore the carpet! now this is a brand new trailer!! I found a mobil RV service, that said he would replace the AC for a new 1, the AC is under warranty, all you pay is the service fee, you don't have to go through the dealer you bought your RV from. your AC is made by Dometic, you have to deal with them, not with your dealer. Forest River products are not reliable!!

We, unfortunately, are very limited on options for repair in our area. Dometic had a number of authorized repair techs listed and most were defunct dealers. The only other option was a used dealership that was rated much worse than my dealer. I did get a hold of the Service Manager who told me to bring it in Friday and he'd make sure all work was completed
