We really like the 312qbud, just need to know if the recall does include the model we like, what additional considerations/questions do we need to be asking of the dealer?
I looked through all the recalls and none were showing for the Hemisphere line, so you are good there.
Make sure you get the dealer to give you the information on the second year of Forest River warranty for $150.
Get a 15,000btu air conditioner, or get 2 air conditioners. Try and get the trailer wired for 50amp service. There are alot of systems that run on electricity on this model trailer and some of us are having problems with blowing breakers running to many appliances at the same time.
The only other advice that I can give is don't give the dealer any money until they have fixed all the items that you find are broken or not working when you do your pdi with the dealer. You can find the checklist on this forum of what to go over when you pdi the trailer.
The dealer may try to rush you through this process and they will also want to have you sign off on the trailer. Please don't do this until they have fixed everything and you will have a fantastic experience.
If the dealer will not let you do a thorough inspection on the trailer and take your time doing it. RUN
Other than that, our family loves our 312qbud it's a great model!!
