Hi happy campers

Hi my name Jim and I always said I would never own a Forest River product. While looking at new campers we saw the new Cedar Creek Silverback. The wife fell in love with it and my son who is over 6'2" likes the cathedral ceiling on the slides. So far we have liked this camper. There are a few issues I will have to repair that the factory screwed up on, but it is no where near as bad as some of the other products they produce We looked at on the lots the last few years. I came to realize that quality control is a farce in the rv industry. We are seasonal campers and keep our camper in a campground in the Lupton area in northern Mi. We live here all summer from when school lets out until it starts again in the fall.

Hello from Sherwood

Hello,

My wife and I are waiting on our Forest River, Flagstaff Micro Lite 25 DS. Its our first Rv and looking forward to some nice weekend time. We have two dogs, Izzy and Arty, both foster Cocker Kids.

I decided on the Forest River Product because its a Berksire Hallathaway company (Warrent Buffet). It will always be here. Also it it a new lightweight construction and easy to pull. We just got a 2008 Trailblazer Lt.

Hope to hear from Little Rock campers.

Thanks

thanks for the welcomes

Thanks everyone for the welcomes. I would like to explain why I never really wanted a forest river product. I used to work in a van conversion factory in the cabinet shop so I'm kinda critical about the cabinet construction and other details. We looked and many campers from several manufacturers and the quality just was not there. some of the worse we looked at on dealers lots were salems, cardinals, and sierras. counter top were not trimmed flush, cabinets were visibly not square, holes drilled in wall for mounting and t.v. wiring missed the mark and were just left open. I'm not sure if they depend upon the dealer to fix these things or just let people live with it. but When you have a 4" hole in the wall behind your t.v. and they miss the right area and move it 6" over instead of replacing the panel and just leaving the other hole there. The Cedar Creek I purchased had several of these defects but they were minor and just needed the hinges and drawer slides adjusted. One of the things I really hated is that instead of using veneers on paneling edges they are now using tape. Most of the rv manufacturers are using this junk which in high humidity tend to loose its adhesive. If they would use solid hardwood on the faces of cabinets instead of plywood they wouldn't need it at all. The worse part of it is the tape is a 1/4" wider than the edge of the boards they are trying to cover and it looks real cheap. Also you don't really notice it in the dealers lot because there usually isn't very good lighting and it's real hard to notice until you have the lights on.
