Just got my 09 Charleston 40' unit. Traded in my brand new 5th wheel that we used twice (what a kick I took on that). We have had the unit out once, and a few small problems, but I am pretty happy so far. Will be taking it on a longer trip this coming weekend, we will see how it works. Getting about 10MPG, drives like a dream, plenty of room for us and our 4 dogs. My wife not too happy about the sleeper couches, but I guess we should have opened them up before we bought it. They are both identical and pretty small. I love the kubota generator, the cummins engine, and the freightliner chassis. The small issues we have are the satellite unit does not work, they tell me the cable from the unit to the switch inside is shorted out (a cable is on order). The door in the bedroom falls off - apparently becasue the mirror they have on it is too heavy for the rails, so the solution is forget the mirror and Forrest River is sending us a door with no holes where the mirror was. The video cables from the living room to the bedroom tv are not connected. Even the dealer has no clue how to fix that, we are waiting on engineers at Forrest River.
Anyone have direct email contact info for Forrest River?
Thanks all, "Talk" to you later.....
