So here I sit at Watkins glen state park bunking with friends because my 2013 solaire 25bhss has been torn apart since may 26th. The short story is there has been an engineering defect discovered that has affected 6 of these units nation wide. To palominos credit they have granted me a new unit. My dealer is going through a new one for us this wknd. Holding my breath this nightmare ends soon. Not a fan of paying 240 a month for this bs.

I really like the Solaire!! But yall have me freaked out right now. After looking a several different TTs, we decided on the 209BH. No slide, because the last TT had slide problems. If you could do it again would you go with Solaire?

Hey Antler man, is this defect just with the 25bhss? Or should there be something I should look at on mine? Hope it all gets sorted out for you tho, IMO they owe you more than just a new unit!

As far as I know it's just on some 2013 25bhss units. I'm not going to pass judgement on palomino or Forrest river just yet. I'm supposed to be getting a new unit. When it's hooked to my truck I will take a deep breath..... Stay tuned for further updates. Side note, there are plenty of happy solaire owners out there. Search palomino on FACEBOOK.

Before you take delivery, here's a checklist that may help. I like this one b/c it includes a list of things to take with you on your inspection.
Good luck. Your story makes me upset.

Thanks. Don't worry, just in the short time I've had my first TT I've learned a lot!!! I'm much more educated on these things now!

Duh....I forgot to actually attach it. I bet you are prepared second time around, but may help others. I started a thread for it too.

Our dealer and Forest River bought our 2013 Solaire 297rds back from us. We no longer
own it. It took an additional 45 days to convince them we had enough. We never
threaten to sue or get a lawyer. This was our third Forest River product,
Very happy with the first 2 but never again will we buy another Forest
River product. They lack of quality control and the tendency to pass the buck
to the dealer. Fortunately we had a dealer willing to help us out of this
awful experience.
