How happy are you with your FR Purchase?
 
I have seen lots of post lately with problems people are having with their FR Purchases. I even have mine in the shop now, this is a soud off for those who are happy, or not so happy in a poll.

I Received my 5Th wheel new, had it delivered from Texas to Arizona. When it showed up there is inside damage to the floor,inside dome in shower, 32"TV didn't get sent with the unit, radio don't work, water heater don't work, water filter housing was loose and when the unit was winterized the pink fluid leaked all over the inside, the battery wires where just setting on the posts not tied down, the dealer ship didn't pre trip/inspect it before it was shipped and after calling the dealership for two weeks all I was told was since you are 1100 miles for use you will have to go some where and have it fixed under warranty.

Nice customer service right.

I call fr and was told when I bring the 5Th wheel to a bigger town all the repairs will be fixed and it will take about a month, hard to use while It's in the shop.

We have been very happy with both Forest River Products that we have owned. The 1st was a new 2009 Palomino Pony PuP, P2100. No problems with it. We upgraded to a used 2009 Palomino Puma 25RS. We love the floor plan and all the stowage that it has. :thumbsup:

This our second one, a surveyor
TT and now a flagstaff fifth wheel.
Happy with both, minor issues, never returned for service work.

Love our V-Lite, a few minor issues that were fixed under warranty very quickly I may add. We are on our 3rd summer this year and are getting ready to head to Indiana next week.

We love our 2012 silverback 29re. We have traveled about 4000 miles with it and only had minor issues and only a few. Everyone needs to realize they invested in a vehicle and a house when they bought a trailer. Things will break and maintenance will need to be done. I do about as much work on my trailer as my house and tow vehicle which is just life. many vehicles and/or trailers will have horror stories and bad experiences with dealers.

No issues here with the 285WP. RONN, try Freedom RV here in Tucson for any of the warranty work. I had an issue with the fuel pump and FR said that Freedom RV would take care of it and they did.

There is now about 40 things on my list of repairs. Some I could fix myself, some won't get fixed and some we will wait and see how they make out. Disappointed, but Surveyor says they will make it all right.
