Previous posts in this thread indicate that Forest River has stepped up and taken care of the frame problems encountered by the two others. Hope you have the same result. Further hope that these problems are the exception, since we just took delivery on a 2012 Wolfpack 305WP.

Thank you. I plan to post everything that happens along the way regarding this repair. I to hope that Forest River steps up as this situation makes me feel sick. The trailer is worth nothing due to depreciation and now I have to pay $5,000-6,000 to repair a frame that should not have failed, this especially hurts since I would guess the trailer is barely worth $10,000.

Not only did we pay for a brand new 5th wheel with plans to have it for at least 10 years, we also traded our almost brand new 06 Tundra (in 2007) to purchase our Chevy diesel to pull it. Anyway.....

Oh and best of luck with yours, I don't wish this situation on anyone.

After reading all the problems with the frames, I would not be buying one, it's just a matter of time before one comes off and people get killed, just because it was economical to produce an unsafe product. While some may say this is not the case, then, why are there pages of this type of complaint, not just on this site but on others too. State and federal governments should be involved with this it is our lives at stake here.

one THING I do not wish to see

one THING I do not wish to see
is
our sweet RV's made in China
they are probably reading these frame defect posts
and
training up some more welders over there
I do not like the thought of what they could do to the market here
come on US builders of RV units
get some real welders
buy some thicker metals
((((( give a lifetime frame guarantee )))))
let's make sure
not to show China any weak spots in our production
why
because we want to brag about
Made In The USA
