Hello from texas

My husband and I are thinking about purchasing an RV. We are unsure of what brand to buy. We have narrowed it down to Forrest river and open range. Does anyone have any input.

It's a crap shoot so choose the one you like. I'd go with FR. Later RJD

Welcome to the forum from Weatherford!

As to the question, I've owned and totally been through a FR product. I've looked hard at the Open Range. In my opinion... for what it's worth... which ain't much... the Open Range is a better unit, but will likely be heavier and more costly.

Welcome from NorCal. What we found worked best for us was to find a floor plan we really liked first and then looked at the different brands. Then it was a matter of deciding on price/quality. In the end we went with what we feel is a good quality at a great price. As you read these forums, it seems the quality is subjective and there are some lemons out there. We are very happy with our WindJammer and have no problem recommending some one buying one. Good luck with your search!
