We purchased 2012 Georgetown... We like the coach . Dealer service department sucked. It took us from August to now to fix our 40 ...mostly minor issues! Just stay on them...

Do what I did raise [moderator edit] and [moderator edit]. If the warranty states bumper to bumper 1 year walk away and say fix it. Enough is enough I had FR kiss my butt after making them look bad online over know issues. Plus have a good lawyer handy for input.

We have a few problems with our Salem27rls all repaired by dealer or at rally. We enjoy it a lot, will buy for again when ready for the 5th wheel.

We have a 2304S and it has just completed its second year of use. We had an issue with the slide motor the first year and the dealer replaced it and have not any other problems with it since then. I am very pleased with the Forest River TT and definately would buy another one.

We are love our Sabre but since the last time I posted we have had several more issues and have had it in the shop over a month to get these fixed. We are somewhat disappointed that everytime we take it out something else has to go in for warranty work. We are also very disappointed with the dealership that does the warranty work. We have been waiting for our floor to be replaced since July and have had to take it back in because they tell us something is fixed only to get the unit back and it wasnt. We live in Texas and can camp year round but not when the RV is in the shop so much. We pick it up today and hopefully we will finally have everything in working order.

We've had 2 new 5th wheels before this Columbus and had troubles with them that either the manufacture or the dealers couldn't or wouldn't take care of the problems. Forest River and our dealer now are doing a fantastic job of taking care of the problems, weare TOTALLY HAPPY with our 320RS Columbus.

You will have to go the beginning of the thread. The poll is open and should be available to vote on if you haven't already voted. Hopefully that works.

I love the design of our 2011 Sunseeker 2450. The storage and layout are perfect. No problem with the engine or drive train after we realigned it.

Things disappointed in. The Co2 and Propane detecter were out of date on Dec 2011 and we had to replace it for $150. On a 2011 I would expect it to be in service longer. The vents in the roof vibrate open and need to be replaced. The bathroom door latches intermittantly, it often swings open during driving.

So far, very satisfied with our 2013 Sandpiper 356RL. Took delivery on September 29 and immediately left on a 3-week 3,100 mile trip to visit friends and family. No problems other than two mice for a day or so. Not like our previous 5W, stayed in the shop over 8 months of the 22 that we owned it.
