23Pack15 -- Love it?

Who here has one and loves it? I had been considering a 24pack14 and the storage/space I was giving up from my current Flagstaff was crazy... then I walked in and checked out the 23pack15. There is considerably more counter space and storage...along with a longer awning.. and its not that much heavier/longer thant the p14 and still has all the things that p14 had. Love having the possible generator added later.... but that seems like a huge $$$$ but since its just me camping...it would eliminate me having to lift/pack/fuel a generator when one is needed.

Who here has one...
  • How long have you had it
  • What do you love about it
  • What do you dislike about it
  • Would you buy it again
  • Has it held up even with it exposed to the elements (with the door open)

My flagstaff was heavily camped in for a good 6 years... we haad a blast.. and the only thing that ever went wrong was the door to the outdoor kitchen... warped...and to be replaced... even tho it was NEVER open in the rain or anything.. even the counter top in the outdoor kitchen had to be warranty replaced that first year as well.. and we took VERY good care of it...
I am thinking the toy hauler is a HUGE "outdoor kitchen" type camper.... if you love having that door open all the time -- enjoying the party deck...as I am sure I would.... and its humid as hell here in Indiana.... just trying to get some feedback before I make a decision.
Thank you!!!

Greetings from NC
We just bought our 23Pack15 first part of June. Have had one trip in it and our second this coming weekend. Feedback thus far is great. Had one light that wont turn off via the push button (wall switch works just fine) .. and the stove top cover hinge was bent and will not lay flat. Easy fixes and covered under warranty.
We love the room it provides with the slide out. Plan to get a couple of Euro type rockers .. but using lawn chairs for now. We love the party deck and the Harley fits great ..
No complaints .. but again we have more driveway time than actual camping time at this point.

Hope that helps
-Dave

Me and my wife had bought a 2021 toyhauler 23pack15 and we really loved it because it would fit our 4 seater in the back of it. We bought it in July of this year and had only camped out of it once. Well when we had gotten back from our trip I just let the toyhauler running for a month as far as the air conditioning I left it set on 78 and had no issues at all..well I eventually shut it down till our next trip. This past Sunday I went to fire it up and everything worked besides the fridge it has a furrion fridge 10 cubic and it will not power on and still hasnít til yesterday. Well so when I went into the toyhauler yesterday evening the air conditioning had quit working it was 96 in their and all it will do is just hum..the fan comes on lo but will not turn on hi. When I go to turn the compressor on it just hums and I had thought I smell something electrical burning so I immediately shut it off..so we have a family trip planned this weekend and we have no fridge or no AC...please tell me your thoughts we actually like the toyhauler but is disappointed because we have only used it 1 time..thanks

So I called Forest River and talked to a very nice ladie and at first she told me I had to take it into a dealer so then I said look you guys had just built this model in May and I bought it the July 4 and only had used it 1 time and I said I donít feel like I should have to take it to a dealer I said you guys need to send someone to my house to fix..well at first she said ok look if you find someone who can do the warranty work then we will pay I said ok so I called a guy and he came to look at the air conditioning unit he was up their for 5 min came back down and said the compressor had locked up and needed to be replaced so he called all the warehouses and no one had any instock...they told him it would be November or December so and I also called a dealer and they said the same thing so we are just stuck so we are just trying to make the best of it...

We bought ours just over a year ago and really like it. It was tough because we where downsizing from a 40' raptor. Very little issue's. They main problem we had was a staple that was put into the carpet on the slide tore the flooring. It's under warranty so they are going to replace it. Otherwise we have had very good luck and everything works good. We haul a Polaris general and it's a tight fit but it works.

This is a model we are looking at for the spring. Well, my wife likes this one, but she isn't the one who backs it up or tows it lol. How does it tow? We have a 2012 3/4 Ton Diesel to pull it, so i'll have plenty of truck to do.

It tows great I have a ton truck dually 6.0 itís hitch heavy you will most definitely need sway bars if I had a choice Iíd go with the fifth wheel just because it will ride better on the axle of the truck.... but for what it is you canít beat what it comes with and with the price either..any other questions let me know we are finally taking our toyhauler to do warranty work next weekend

thank you for the reply! One question.. well two.. lol.. What is the inside height at the door? The toy we are looking at getting (well one of the two we are looking at) is a staggering 83" tall. With the benches folded up we will have lots of room as far as width goes, but i'm worried about height at the door opening. When/if you get a chance could you get it for me?

Talking Just an update--

--- I pulled the trigger and traded in the Flagstaff for the WolfPack... and it is freaking amazing!!!!! I love it!! I am glad everything worked out for the best and I ended up with the 2021 (with a ton of upgrades) vs. the 2020 model. *things happen for a reason*

I got it on Tuesday of last week .. and took the Toybox out on Thursday for its Maiden Voyage. The first couple days of getting her I struggled with the storage options... (the Flagstaff had an insane amount of storage!!!) But the more you have the more you horde..... so slowly.. I have tried to think differently...(Its just me that I need to pack for now) Having a rainy night in the camper last night.. I played around with different storage options.. the under the bed storage is HUGE!!!! Utilizing that for the stuff I don't use everyday has freed up the cabinets in the kitchen area.
I wish it wasnt October already-- so I could have the whole summer to enjoy...


it does have heated tanks... so maybe there will be some winter explorations.
