New Surveyor Select 5W

I happened to find this on line...no mention of this new product line on Forest River's site.

Hey Dave,

I think I found the model under the surveyor line, eastern division and then under the fifth wheel icon in the top right corner.

Looking for something new?

Maybe, if you're looking to buy my current one!

I see the Surveyor 5W listing now...wasn't looking hard enough. I do believe that these have just been introduced though.

Surveyor used to make 5W's but discontinued production a couple of years ago from what I can recall.

I am in the process of buying a new Surveyor SV293 and would be interested to know if anyone has any experience with the Surveyor fifth wheels.

I don't think your hitch would fit well on my sequoia roof!

I think you are right, surveyor took a couple years off making the fifth wheels. They weren't in the brochure for a bit ('09 to now?)

It appears that the surveyor 5th wheels don't use torsion suspension any more from the online brochure

As I said, these have just been introduced...doing a google search almost draws a blank. I'd suspect that the brand has been brought back to life using existing floorplans of another FR brand with some minor changes.

You might have to provide the initial feedback!

It uses Equa-Flex suspension system - don't anything about that other than what I read in their promotional material

My gosh. How many trailers does FR make in all the brands combined?

Better yet, how do you realize you're missing one?

Any resource on the forum listing all of the different FR brands, etc.? It would be a great way to kill some down time...

Here's a link to the Forest River site... Forest River Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Company: RV, Cargo Trailers, Boats, Commercial, Housing

Note the links to Coachman, Dynamax, Palomino, Prime Time and Shasta at the bottom of the home page.
