Love the layout, and open feeling which makes it feel much larger than it is. Nice colors and styling. Quality control seems to have been severely lacking during the manufacture of my unit. Major problems started nearly immediately. The drain line behind the kitchen sink was either never connected or connected only loosely at the factory, resulting in a flood of the dead space under the bathroom and down into the underbelly immediately upon moving in. The water heater works only intermittently (DSI fault), the converter failed after 2 months, one slide-out tilts out at an awkward angle even after adjustment by the dealership, the backsplash behind the stove melted during the very first use of the stove (it is plastic, made to look like marble), the speakers on the TV are blown or the worst quality ever, the piston which should hold up the bed doesn't, the shower floor isn't sloped correctly so water collects in one corner instead of draining, the toilet flush pedal has a slow leak which drips onto the floor, and the auto leveling system frequently shows unexplained errors. I am still happy with the choice of unit and floor plan, and did expect some repairs as all new units usually require, but have been just blown away by the quantity of issues in such a short time. I have owned the unit for just three months. Two calls and voicemails to Forest River went completely ignored, and one email to them got me a generic response stating that my concerns would be noted.

This has been a great coach. We ordered it from the factory and Cedaf Creek was willing to put in the changes we asked for. Towing is a breeze and hook up and unhooking is simple with the 6 point hydraulic system. The coach is 34 feet but feels much Bigger thanks to the opposing slides, the floor space is actually big enough to dance in. The master bed room is real nice sized and the king bed is great. The stackable washer an drier gets rid of the drudge of going to the laundry mat. As for cons . I don't have any.

This is a very open floor plan with a clear and wide view from the living area that lets in a lot of sun light. From the large shower area to the king size bed to the quiet ac, this RV is great for full or part time living or just for a nice getaway. It is such a well built 5th wheel. We have been very pleased.

We ordered this 5th wheel in July 2017 and took possession of it on 10/6/2017. It is exactly what we ordered and are very pleased with it. Only two small issues and they are as follows: A leak outside the camper at the outdoor shower...needed a O-ring replaced. Second, the King Jack antenna just feel over for no reason. Both happened on our first trip out. Repaired and replaced promptly by a dealer near us. Everything has worked perfectly since that time. We optioned to pay extra for the "Air Ride" hitch. I cannot tell you how well this camper pulls! Would buy again!

We traded in a 2017 40 ft Cardinal for this 29RE simply for the floor plan with NO island. The room is huge!We made an extra leaf for the table & now have up to 8 folks to eat & play cards at night. Everyone loves our camper. We ordered a heat pump on the A.C. & dual pane windows. A Must for a snowbird camper. No moisture on widows & very toastie! However, quality issues. The first day we pulled out of the dealers lot & got set up for night we noticed we had a flat tire. After a month of camping our underbellie was bulging...bottom nearly fell off! Drain from kitchen sink to gray tank never connected! We had to drill holes to let the pressure off & water to drain. All the insulation was soaked. All had to be repaired. Will never know if insulation was really replaced. The half complete Leppert leveling pad out side keeps showing errors meaning you have to keep lowering big mor-ride steps to re enter & reset system. EVERY time, many times.Silver back tries to cut costs by not putting cubbord doors on half the bathroom. Try hauling ...stuff falls out! We had to order doors thru dealer from FR & install them. Jensen TV worked great until new cable co. Now all if us with Silverbacks in our camp can no longer change channels with remote. Tried a universal remote & won't program either. Thankful we purchased from a small lot in Myrtle Beach who has very kindly fixed everything except tv & Level Up Pad issues through warranty.
