Forest River vs Aliner

Went to RV show today and saw the new Aliners. Have to say, hands down, I am still so glad I bought the FR -Still offers more value for the dollar and interior is much more appealing altho FR still weighs slightly more. Other than the 28' Shockwave toyhauler, nothing else tempted me to enter them...but, at the end of the day, I was humming to myself that I'll happily stick with the little A Frame. LOL - its paid for and doesnt dent the gas tank when taken on a trip. Cant wait to take it out in the coming months! Come on Spring!

I have to agree with you on the value, appeal and gas milage. Made the right decision.

Spokane show

You must have went to the Spokane Show. I agree that FR is so much nicer.We had been looking and attended the show last year. We had to have one after seeing the rockwoods.
I was pretty excited with the weather the other day when it reached forty and starting dreaming about places to go. Now we have more snow!

Hi Mickeylind, yes it was Spokane. I have always enjoyed going to this show every year. This year was nice but my love affair with our folding Flagstaff is so fresh since purchasing it last year that I really didnt find myself popping in any models and wishing I had bought anything different....haha except the big toyhauler but since I have no truck big enough to pull it & refuse to pay 45k for one, that is just not gonna happen. We have gradually downsized from motorhome to travel trailer to the present A Frame. I did bring home an ugly mat to put my dog crates on, couldnt pass on the price for a 9x12...they only last a few years with our use and the dogs deciding to floss their teeth with them. argh!

Which model did you bring home?
