Our trailer was new last summer. A few small things on the PDI that were fixed by the dealer. For some reason the slide fuse blew on our first long trip, an easy fix. The only major thing has been the Genesis entertainment system that died this spring. We chose to wait until the rally and Forest River swapped it out for a new one at the FROG Rally this week. They have spent the past week fixing things large and small on any of the the 350+ units here that requested service. Can't say enough nice things about the past week. So much fun!

Our '08 Trail Cruiser Hybrid C191 had very few issues. Had to replace the tires, that was it. Other than typical hybrid trailer things, a very trouble free trailer. Had a nice build quality, good appliances.
Our 2014 Wildwood 261BHXL has been trouble-free so far. Loose shower hose, that's been it. Love the floorplan. Compared to the Trail Cruiser, I don't think it has the build quality. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice trailer. But the fit and finish is a little under the older unit.
I also like the Norcold fridge that was in my precious trailer better than the Dometic.
We love our trailer, hope we can continue to enjoy it for many years.

As for vehicles, when we bought Chrysler products, they were constant problems. After switching to Honda and Toyota, we haven't been back to the dealers except for maintenance.

We bought our second FR TT back in May, 2014 27BESS. There were over a dozen issues related to poor quality and a general lack of "doing things right the first time."

We picked up our 2014 surveyor select 305 a week before Memorial Day and have had it out for a total of 15 days on 3 different trips and have had zero problems. Not so much as a loose screw. We had minor problems when we bought our sport sp295 but none on this unit.

We bought a Flagstaff Micro Lite 25 KS last Feb. Never a problem. Not even one trip to the dealer for warranty problems. Wish I could say the same about the 27RLWS we traded it for this past March. Two trips already and now have some bubbles popping up on the front.

We have had only minor issues with our sp220. Nothing we couldn't fix ourselves.

Picked up our SP220 in June...have had it out 5 time with 1500 miles on it with no issues...
But I did take my brother with me to pick it up from the dealer... He works in final finish at a Keystone plant for 12 years so
He picked the thing apart...nothing major just a few minor things...we were in and out of there in less than 2 hours...
Probably will put good tires on it at the start of the new season...

We bought a new Flagstaff 832IKBS in July, and weeks of camping so far, and counting. No problems at all. Thought I had a TV reception issue, but it wasn't a trailer issue. Our 2010 Puma 29RKSS that we had before would throw its 30 amp breaker just by looking at it. TV and microwave? Forget it. Electric water heater and anything 110V? No way! Replaced the original 30 amp breaker and crawled under trailer to re-do both ground connections, and success. Don't know which solved that problem, but it sure was nicer. Otherwise, that TT performed without a single issue.

My first "RV" was a 1968 Bell camper that I hauled around on a 1969 f250.
We bought the Lite in July of this year.
