wildcat 314bhx

About 4 months ago we purchased a Wildcat 314BHX. When we were looking at floor plans we really liked this one. When I called Forest River they said that they didn't make a lot of them. In fact, they told me that they only made two of the floor plan that was actually shown on the website. They then switched to a different floorplan. Since we liked it so much I asked for a local dealer that might have one. He stated that there were only two new ones left in Florida according to his records. We actually found one and bought it and love it. However, I have never seen another one. They don't even make this model any longer. Does anyone else that reads this stuff have one? Would be interested to hear your story. Thanks.

I knew this 5er was hard to find but I did not realize that there were so few. Am I the only one that has one?

No, I actually mean the 314BHX. See what I mean, it is rare. If you do a search online you will see some out there. That is why I was wondering if I could find anyone else out there that has one. I believe that they were only made in 2016. We love the floor plan and so far it has been a great camper.

Glad that you like yours also. I have had a few repairs needed, a couple more major than others, but pretty happy for the most part. The kids really love their separate bunk room. We like the fact that we can open the slider doors to their room which really opens up the camper. I have done a lot of mods and we are enjoying it. Good luck.

A couple of months after we got the 5er, the fridge quite cooling. Had it back and forth with the dealer for months. They finally changed out a circuit board or something of that nature and it started working again. The front cap leaked and was only noticeable when you raised the front in order to hook up. Dealer was never able to find it. I just resealed the front cap from top to bottom and also along the bottom edge and it seems to have fixed the problem. Our D seals around the super slide have split, even though I put stuff on them regularly. They also keep sliding out of place. The trim above the slider doors to the bunk room has come off but was an easy fix. We put new Sailun tires on it a weak after we got it home. Even though we bought the camper new, the tires were 3 years old. We had a leak in the wardrobe slide. We had to seal the penetrations where the cables go. One of our blinds came off of the wall. Just needed a bigger screw. Don't put a lot of weight on the shelf in the half moon cabinet because ours fell off. Mostly minor camper stuff. Things that can be fixed relatively easily. Let me know if you have had any similar problems. Good luck.
