To buy or not to buy?
Ok so there is a lot that goes into a decision to purchase a motor home. I'm beyond those. We are certainly going to buy. My budget is right at $170k top end. I require a diesel and I want bunks. So that limits my options.
The question I have is should I purchase Forest River or look for better or "greener pastures" elsewhere?
Do any of those that own a Forest River wish they would have purchased something else? A Fleetwood perhaps?
I looked today and I saw a lot of particle board and plastic where I was expecting at least plywood or metal.
Tomorrow I will drive one, but the engine, chassy, and drivetran are not my biggest concerns. It the potential barrage of small minor repairs such as leaks, squeaks, cracks and peels. Are the fabrics really durable? In some ways I feel like I may be purchasing a Pinto dressed up to look like a Camry, if that makes any sense.
Bottom line, are any new owners tearing their hair out wishing they would have said no to the supposed great deal they got or do they believe that all things considered they got what they paid for?
Any comments are appreciated.
