Checking Out the 2011 Models

I don't know if this is old news or not but Forest River is now suppling Sanyo tv's in the 2011 campers, Serta mattresses and not more Concertone crap. I don't remember the name of the new stereos, but I am told they are just as bad.

Not totally true. We just got our 2011 unit 2 weeks ago with a Toshiba 32" LCD and it has the ZX700. But we do have a Serta mattress that is very comfy.

I looked at 7 different model by Forest River and they all had the same tv, but I didn't mean that Sanyo was the only brand sorry about that, but what I was told by the Service Manager is that Forest River is installing real tv's in there units now, that was his words. In 06 when I bought mine a tv did not come with it so I wouldn't know. Thanks for the correction.

I'm sure that FR is no different than the other Manufacturers when looking for appliances. Whoever can provide the best price line gets the contract for a season, maybe less. Our 2007 Georgetown 370TS came with a 32" Westinghouse HDTV up front, great picture and no problems. A 20" Sanyo analog TV, same thing great picture but no longer usable by outside antenna without a box. Sharp Carousel Microwave, really nice, no problems and Magic Chef Stove, Dometic Refrig and the other standard dometic products. And then there's the EXECUTIVE HTS-1000 Home Theatre System. Our current unit has been fine, but it took 3 units to get to this one.
I believe they went to Olevea or something close to that and Toshiba TV, had problems and started replacing those. It just appears that once they get a product that's reliable they don't stay with it more than a season based on cost.
That's big business these days. Quantity (best price) vs. Quality (performance) I think we all know who wins!!

Can you say CONCERTONE, I thought you could!!!!!

Our new 2011 built in March 2010 (and looking nearly identical to the 2010 we made our buying decision on), has a 26 inch Toshiba and a 22 inch Kenko flat panel TV's. Both HDTV

Water heater and stove - Suburban
Awning and AC - Dometic
Fridge - Norcold
stereo system - ZX700, Concertone
mattress - mmmmmmmm, Serta
slide mechanisms - Lippert
suspension - Alko

The water heater has a switch so you can operate it on AC power. Nice.
