Forest River, Inc. is not Forest River RV

We sometimes get a lot of confusion in the forums, especially to the corporate structure of Forest River. Many members do not realize there is the parent company of Forest River Inc that encompasses a lot of brands/subsidiaries. Forest River RV is one of these subsidiaries. Since there are so many different brands/makes/models, it is a good idea when asking for help to specify exactly which you have.

Here is a copy from Wikipedia, that explains the corporate structure of Forest River, Inc. I am showing just the RV part, but they also make boats, cargo trailers, buses. etc. All of Forest River Inc divisions can be contacted via their webpage here:
