Amen Bro........
But....the overseas companies can just build them in the good 'ol USA. Just imagine a Japanese 'Sunseeker'?

Lowest price is not always the best deal if your dealer is absent when
you have problems.

Some of us are thin skinned because folks so often come here to
rant about poor quality.
WE can't help with that other than to suggest solutions to specific
problems.

IF you had a chevy and it was giving you problems what good would it
do to complain to other chevy owners?
Go to a chevy DEALER and complain.
If the above is being snarky I'm sorry.

I agree with much of what you said. I hate to see people give up on getting good service. The owner could take a Chevy to any other GM dealer. That is a little harder to do with the trailer and they (Surveyor) don't appear to have any local representation in this city of 250K+.

If what you say is accurate then put all your suggestions in a word document and send it to Forest River direct. Use regular mail. Make a request to have someone reply to you directly. When they do, report it back here.

X Eleventy, hallelujah and AMEN!

I've twice typed out essentially what you just intimated, but kept havin' to sit on Weezer's hands. I couldn't get it as "unsnarky" as you did so I deleted it before posting. /snark

The OP has gotten lots of feedback on other questions he's had, and to me, it seems that "just ain't good enough" and he's even snarked back at some who were giving suggestions/advice. (shrug...YMMV)

FTR...didn't find any pinholes.

Who said what first part? I highlighted the comment I was asking about( YOUR words) about being sent to this forum.

Ha, just part of the inherent frustration. If there was a Forest River POC listed on their website, I sure would. I figure since they point all of their traffic here, they must look at it sometime. But, based on their other internet action, probably not. . . I would send it to Warren buffet, if I had his email. I will paraphrase something about he said about not telling the company leader how to run a company, but maybe he should.

I also have read many other posts that may be close to as (or more) frustrated with the company as I am.


How is it irrelevant, if the original complaint was not having contact information and/or support from Forest River?

Short nap? I am not sure what post you are referring to, but FTR if I don't get the answer I am looking for then yes, I keep looking. Don't you?

And BTW, if you're bored, or just curious, try searching Airstream dissatisfaction. It's a real eye opener. There are even a few negative comments on this forum about Airstream regarding fit and finish, things found during PDI, things breaking so soon after taking delivery, etc.

Yep, I know that doesn't help someone who didn't buy (and certainly didn't pay the price for) an Airstream. I'm just sayin'.

Ummm, look above my post you just responded to. The person *I* was responding to is quoted right above it, or it certainly is on my laptop.

YMMV

That is partially true. I got the question asking to back up facts. I understood you had taken the paraphrase as he was saying all of that, when part of it was me saying it.
