Exclamation Farewell from Wildcat Chris

Dear Forest River Forum members,

I am writing to inform you I have resigned from Forest River to pursue an amazing new job opportunity at Jayco! More details here:
Jayco Bolstering Towable Product Development

I depart with some mixed feelings as I truly enjoyed working at Wildcat, but this is great change for my family and me, both personally and professionally. I appreciate all the information shared in these forums, the respect and patience of my former customers, and each unique opportunity to assist a great group of Wildcat fans. I've advised my replacement to make his presence known here and I'm hoping you'll show him the same friendliness and willingness to resolve issues you've shown me during my time here.

Iíve been proud to work for Forest River and the Wildcat brand and hope both continue to see the success they deserve. I appreciate your support and understanding and I wish you all the very best!

Sincerely,

"Wildcat Chris" Barth

Congrats on the new job. You will be missed. You always would find answers for the Wildcat owners. We went on the Wildcat Factory Tour with you back during the 2013 F.R.O.G. Rally.

Do we call you Eagle Chris now?

Best of luck to you in your new job. Jayco should be a super place to work. The best part is you get to stay in Northern IN.

Chris, I can't say enough about how well you and Brian took care of us here recently. I contacted you with a situation and true to your word you took care of things on my schedule.
We wish you the absolute best of luck in your new endeavors ahead, but you will be missed.
Thank you for being you,

Chris, just thinking about all that you will need to change (Facebook page - and any other network media you use, emails, letterheads, business cards, ...); gosh my head hurts.

Don't know what Jayco is paying you, but hope its worth all the aggravation!

Thank you for all you did for our members and feel free to drop in any time.

(Just follow the "member" rules ... - no wooing our folks!)

See you around the

Does this mean that you have to get rid of your FR TT before you can go to work? Lol

Haven't heard who it is, will be nor have they checked in here to the best of my knowledge.

Chris will be missed, he was a very valuable asset to the group as a whole and a very important part of getting our Wildcat corrected after we experience a few issues.
