I agree with 5 hole. People just love to bitch and complain about everything. Try building something and then drag it down the road a 1000 miles. Things will start to loosen up real quick. Get some tools, silicone (various colors to match) and some knowledge about fixing stuff. This will give you something to do at the camp site.

It a chance we all take when buying a rv

Not suggesting that anyone go in blind but major issues are, in the grand scheme of thing rare. What is more rare is hearing from the people that do not have issues. We have owned 4 campers over 30 years & had very few issues and nothing major. We have had many more issues with the house than we have the campers but granted we don't live in the camper.

The biggest issue is learning to safely tow, set up, & enjoy being where you are....

Well said Oak! everyone builds a lemon from time to time, if I got one, I would be the first one to be on here ranting about it. Whether a rv, house, vehicle what ever.
What I have noticed here is that the level of help from the manufacturer is at a higher level at FR vs many others.
I just bought a new - used vehicle. If I went off of reviews only I would never have bought anything!!

From what I have seen if we acted on reviews, we would all be walking and living in a box.

we would all NOT buy trailers "which are a horrible investment monetarily" and we would be still tent camping...

heck....pretty much EVERY ONE of my hobby/toys is pure and simple waste of excessive money....but when i die i wont care nor remember the money.....just the things i did or wish i had done....

in college i did ONE of my thesis papers on mortality, and long story short, people on their death bed did not generally recall or dwell on their happiest moments....only the moments/things they missed and wished they had done.....it was pretty sad that the majority looked back and out of all their life had ONLY regretted the things they had not done....no matter if was from fear of religion, or family or society......the only constant i could signify with any statistical significance was regret of the NOT done...so to me at a very young age my perception of life and the happiness we perceive was thrown askew..... just a thought.....buy it....love it.....live it....create life experience!!

Newbie and Now Scared to Death

Your basic "Bucket List". Went though the middle age crazies and went sky diving, bought a Harley Ultra Classic and toured the country. Got my pilot license. Flew a helicopter to my wedding. Flew a Lear Jet from Washington to Miami. Drove tanks on a military base. Drove my wife crazy. Camped, hiked, two sons in the military (Navy & Coast Guard). Been a cop for close to 30 years. Buying a Forest River RV is just another on the list. Life is short and full of surprises. Learn to enjoy and embrace your life and when it's your time, you have done what you set out to do. The little things are just that...little things. A curtain falling off the wall in my RV is yet another challenge.
You want to be there on the bed at the end of life wondering, "What If"? Don't go there. Do it now!!!
