Melpop, did you swap out the furniture already, that sue does not look like what came in our River Stone!!! I like the tables by the couch where did you get them? Not sure they will work with the height of our couch but do need a place for drinks. Good luck and enjoy

We purchased a Riverstone Legacy Dec 2016. We have had a few very minor issues with the unit but the one that bothers us the most is the paint. It is peeling off the roof membrane above where the membrane ends on the side. It is at the dealer now being repaired. We are concerned about this being a lifetime issue. Has anyone else had issues with the paint?

We can't wait til next spring to start vacationing in it. For now it will be stored in our yard.
Do you still live your riverstone fb? We are thinking about buying one.

Yes, we bought this cool sofa that makes a large bed or two twins at Designs Within Reach, and two chairs that recline, swivel and glide from Bova in Dallas. I like a more contemporary look instead of a puffy La Z Boy look. I found the two round tables at Home Goods and they fit perfectly with the sofa. We call our 5th wheel, Elsie, and our 3500 dually is Bart (Big Ass Retirement Truck). I think Elsie is so beautiful!

We just got ours in March and have only taken 3 weekenders. My husband and I are touring the western U.S. this summer. We can hardly wait! Elsie, our 5th Wheel, is simply fabulous!!!

Love the pictures - just beautiful! Nice job and thank you so much for the feedback.

We have just been on the fence trying to decide between a DRV and the Riverstone. Tough decision with so much money involved.

Smile Riverstone Legacy

Deb7 Our Riverstone Legacy has been stored in our Yard since we brought it home in Nov.we are going to pour a concrete pad w/ full hook up just as if we were at a campground. Maybe even water to wash it. We plan on taken our first trip soon. Our plans right now are to take short vacations however we bought it with the idea of going full time in the future. Being a first timer and all there is a lot of things we need to get ready for the first season and things my husband wanted for it and his truck. He just had installed a camera system besides the one from Forest River. We now have a camera system that we can see up in the truck from the nav screen just like in a Class A . His concern was backing up and not being able to see the king pin and hitch when the tailgate is down.Plus the way the camera works is off of the directionals & being able to see left/right down the side of the truck/5th wheel when changing direction. we ve had a few minor issues such as the rubber seal on one side of the slide out came partially out when going down the road and a small tear at the top . it is being addressed as i type this. Happy travels and enjoy it.
