Silverback 29RE

I purchased the Silverback 29E 2 weeks ago and love it. The openness is amazing. When both slides in the living room are open it is like sitting in my home living room! The quality is excellent! The cathedral ceilings are great (especially if you have people in your family that are 6'4")
There are only a few draw backs.

1. AC is too small for this big unit and really requires the additional AC in the bedroom

2. Stove sits very low on the floor. I am 5'8" and it only comes to around my hip height.

3. The underbelly compartment on the "drivers side" has no way to be latched open.

4. The underbelly compartment on the "passenger side" is too heavy for the small latch they use. Make sure you have a latch installed like the one used to keep the main door open. (it has fallen twice and hit us on the head)

Wishing you safe and wonderful adventures!

We just purchased a 29RE Silverback, and look forward to staying in it in the next few weeks. The space and view from the living room along with the front designed for short bed trucks was the selling points for us.

So Maddy, how bad is the AC? Have you added the second unit?

We purchased a 2010 used (only once) and love the openness also. Beware - after traveling and before extending kitchen slide (stove side)
ck the kitchen drawers for popping open behind the slide during transit.
If drawer pops open it will get caught behind slide when extending and jam the slide and damage the drawer. Tie down drawers before traveling. Other negatives thus far: For extremely hot weather in florida -need second a.c. In bedroom. Not enough electric outlets. No wall light swithes in bedroom - try finding this overhead push button in the light at the control board at kitchen sink - dark spot - need flashlight at night or open door to be able to view. If in transit and want to stop for a sandwich, cannot access kitchen area as slides completely enclose....must extend both slides to be able to access refrig/sink. Big design flaw...would be great to have had a light switch at bathroom door instead of having to fumble for a light in the ceiling or across the room at the sink. I do love the opennesss f the living room although the air mattress has to be reinflated twice each night as it loses air. Stove height too low - feel like i am going down hill. Have had a montana fifth wheel years prior which was superior in all aspects.i assume forest river was cutting corners for pricing, but these few issues i would have gladly paid a little more for.

I have a 29 RE 2011 and it has three knobs where you hook up city water. You can turn two knobs to the right will stop them from opening. The three knobs are black screw knos above the city water hook up. I don't know if the 2010 rv has this or not . You can check it and see. I run my ac on 69 and closed the vents on the ac grill. We live in SC. You know it get hot here.Say the stove is low. They could have put more outlets and switches in this rv but we love it for the room and the windows I hope this will help you . Please check the city water compartment for the three scews it will have main,living & kicken written on lable.
