not sure if we can help except with general info, since the AR-One is a Jayco/Starcraft product and not a Forest River product.
not going to find other AR-One owners here.

but we can help with basic info and suggestions as long as it's not specific to your trailer brand.

Welcome! Our first camper was a Starcraft. It was a great trailer, but as bikendan said, you won't find many current owners here as it is not a Forest River product. Regardless, congratulations on the new camper and have a great time with it!

The Ar is a good basic trailer at a very good price. I was following one AR 14rb model the other day for at least 20 miles. The trailer was tracking perfectly behind the vehicle that was pulling it but I had no clues what it was until the vehicle went to a red light on a double lane. I approched beside the unit and it was towed by a Santa fe newer model. The vehicle had no equalizing hitch and no sway bar on the hitch. I was pretty surprised for a trailer tonge weight of 260 lbs and this is not counting the propane and battery. The only problem I seen on this trailer was the ceiling height of only 73 inches. Otherwise this trailer is well finish and should be good for a long time without problems. For the price you only get the basic like a 3 cu ft fridg which is quite small but it is just priced a bit more expensive than a tent trailer.
