I am very disappointed in the quality of the Cherokee grey wolf 27rr. When I bought it the water tank was shipped out with a crack in it so we could not boondock on our first trip. Then within a year the slide out had broken luckily under warranty. It is now about 2-1/2 years old and there is a ton of water under the dinette which will be coming out of our pocket to have fixed. I like the layout we chose but for the price, I have towed it to be fixed as many times as it has been out camping. I know the factory warranty is 1 year but I would like to think you should get a couple years of camping with no issues. I also think that a leak like this should be covered by the factory. A car that is driven daily has a better warranty

Our Work & Play toy hauler obviously works really well for taking our Polaris XP-1000 RZR side-by-side out to the desert or mountains for riding, especially since it has a 30-gallon fuel station built into it. I was always uncomfortable with carrying gas cans inside our previous older to hauler. That being said, the toy hauler does have 2 built-in vents; one that draws in outside air toward the front and one toward the rear that expels the air. The little secret about toy haulers is that they work great for "regular" camping since they are very roomy. We've used it many times for camping trips, and we took it to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons last year and it was great! Unlike many toy haulers that have a bed in one corner of the main area, this one has a separate bedroom on a slide-out adjacent to a large bathroom with a large shower. Being a toy hauler it also has a 98-gallon fresh water tank! We put the patio kit on ours, which makes the ramp into an outdoor patio area, separated by a wide screen to keep bugs out. This is great for BBQ'ing so we didn't have to go up and down the steps each time we needed something from the kitchen. One minor downside to this toy hauler is that it is 8.5 feet wide, so visibility in hindered a bit along the sides of the trailer. However, I equipped ours with a wireless camera and screen which I clip onto the mirror in our truck so it's natural to look at it for a good view of the road behind. The 21LT only weighs 5928 lbs empty (UVW), so it is easily towed by a half ton truck that is geared appropriately. Gas mileage suffers though as the trailer is both wide and tall. Finally, we used a Blue Ox Sway Pro weight distribution hitch which does an amazing job controlling sway, and is also very quiet compared to the friction type hitches. Note that I rated the factory warranty / support as 3-stars based on experience with a previous new Forest River trailer we had bought. We bought this toy hauler used and did not have to used Forest River for any repairs.

Our experience has been very good. It has enough room for a couple of grandboys and a dog. The open concept of the living area allows us to move around while food prep and lounging around. It really works for us as a pair of retirees and a dog, failing eyesight is not going to allow us to continue to travel safely. This 5th wheel is great for retirees or a small family, as it has 2 slide outs and a simple control panel for managing the various components of the trailer. Its setup uses auto leveling control and large, heated water tanks, which makes it sturdy and livable. Inside the trailer is a 50” TV/Entertainment System and an awesome electric fireplace, which gives off great heat and provides an awesome fireplace view. The RV comes with a 23” Blackstone griddle which hooks up on the outside, as well as a TV hookup. The trailer comes with containerized water and waste hoses and connections. Will provide great camping experience, especially for the novice.

The Rogue Armored Toy Hauler is an awesome RV for those looking to have all the comforts of home, including a garage for your toys, while traveling. This is a large RV with plenty of space and sleeping spots for several adults. We have had up to 8 adults live comfortably for extended periods while traveling. 2 bathrooms, one main and one half, offer convenience. The trailer has many options including outdoor kitchen area, 2 slide outs, full size refrigerator, 5500 onboard generator with remote start button, gas tank with nozzle for fueling your toys and running the generator, large rear door that also acts as a patio area with metal railing system, dual bunks in rear area with another separate kids bunk, washer/dryer hookups, outside hose connections for washing the mud off you and your toys and much more.

I'm going to keep this review short. Om currently renting this trailer from the owner. Its set up on a on concrete residential backyard slab. Ots is the absolutely worst built piece of garbage you could buy. At over 100k to purchase brand new the amout of poor craftsmanship is appalling. The cabinets are so cheaply made, the floor is bowing and buckling on the bathroom and the insulation is almost non existent. In my life I've owned 7 RVs from truck campers to a class A motorhome so I'm giving my honest opinion. This trailer series is disgustingly built with only profits in mind and not the consumer.

This is the worst mistake I've ever made. Build quality is a joke to say because there is no quality involved. This is a kick in the crotch to say the least. Did you Build this on December 24th at 9 PM? Not 1 plumbing connection at P traps connected correctly or any other position of the plumbing, so water damage is profound. Cable TV connections are all crossed and have never worked, Thank goodness for Roku TV`s I bought because the one installed didn't work. This thing is a disaster. No way I would ever buy another product Forest River produced. Or any other product they have any influence over which from my understanding is vast. Forest River is a group I wish I would have never met!!!!!!

Mine is built like a tank. Towing it it's very steady (with a 2500HD, not so much with a 1/2 ton). Factory support is not the best. I had a blowout and damaged the fender. Emailed and called and left messages for XLR three days ago and still no response.
