You all might enjoy reading this, snatched from an Aliner/Chalet forum: "I just went to the local dealer and gave the Forrest River a good going over. All I can say is the other manufacturers better step it up a notch. They do have a really unique product in looks and function. I own an Aliner and looked at the new Aliner side by side with the Forrest River unit and man CNW better get busy to gain some lost ground."
Also, you might like to check out the Aliner club site. They say the club is for all a-frame hardsiders. They have national and regional rallies. Sure we'd all learn a lot from them. It was an Aliner owner in a campground in New Mexico who gave us the idea for adding storage.
