Newbie looking for help with purchase

Hi there, new to rving and the forum. Was hoping to get some input from people on Forest River as a manufacturer and specifically input from owners of the Surveyor Cadet 321bhts or the Sport 296 model. My rig is a 2010 f150 FX4 with tow package. Specs on the 321bhts say I should be under gcvw by 5000lbs and tow rating by 4000lbs dry. I have to double check axle ratings but Im pretty sure I was good. That's all dry weight numbers. Also trips will usually be less than 100km(god bless Vancouver Ilsand) we some longer trips every couple years maybe doing 300km a day with a 3 and 2 year old. Might even have new truck by then. Also Im a 10 year class 1 driver whose driven the worst conditions on road and off road in western Canada so pretty comfortable with the driving part.Appreciate it and thanks for any future help.

I know you are just looking for some help but posting three threads on the same topic is not helping your cause.

Good luck.

Geez I hope I am in the right place for someone to help. I've posted that three times in three appropriate threads, which I've since found out is against the rules. My bad and my mistake. But really within five minutes I had two people complaining to me about that but no one offering anything else with it. ??????

Have you considered that it is possible that someone with your trailer has not yet read your thread?

Patient is a virtue.

another way to get info, while you're waiting for other Surveyor owners to post, is to do a search in the Surveyor sub-forum, for those particular models.

i do know that Surveyor did some recent changes to their lines/models, so not sure if those models you're asking about, were called by different model names or model numbers, previously.

I don't mean to carry on Mr Idaho, but I did also ask for opinions on Forest River as a manufacturer. I'm done with the back and forth now and understand I may have gotten off on the wrong foot by breaking a rule about duplicate posts but please enough chastising. Just looking for help. Thanks and thanks bikendan I'll definitely check it out.

"I don't mean to carry on Mr Idaho, but I did also ask for opinions on Forest River as a manufacturer."

We bought a Forest River Wildwood 241QBXL a couple of months ago. We really like it. Everything works. Some of the workmanship (e.g. caulking the cabinet panels) was really, really shoddy. I wish they had more information specific to a particular model available on their website.
Again, so far, we really like it.

Thank you. I guess that's to be expected though from what I've read on different manufacturers sites and forums, unless of course your spending the big bucks (although to me these are big bucks). Appreciate it

You do know that Forest River Manufacturing has nothing to do with this site.

I just read some of the stuff from the "Mad Momma ..." post and it was unsettling.
