This Rv is very spacious, has a lot of storage space. My grandchild loved having their own bathroom and bedroom. My husband loved having electronic jacks making the set up so easy. The air conditioner shut off when reaching the desired temperature, which I don’t think the one we had before did. The full queen bed is very comfortable. This camper is good for tall people , you don’t have to bend down to get in bed. It also has a ceiling fan which helps circulate the air.

We purchased a Forest River Sierra 3440BH In June of 2023, New never been used and some areas still had the fresh smell of new. We loved the floor plan, as we have 2 teenagers, and about to have our first grandchild from 1 of our boys, so it certainly will work for sleeping arrangements. Now for the best part, got it home and winterized it as camping season was over for us. We hooked up the propane and kept the tank heaters on and keep the indoor temp at 55 degrees. In March we de-winterized and begin to set things up for camping season. Well we found a lest of 19 items that were warranties' and the list goes on. To start the trim is peeling off the cabinets, screen doors are broke, toilets leaked water, sinks leak, bed trim fell off, black tank valve is stuck shut (can not use read bath room at all due to leaks and toilet/ tank), always smell like sewer, awing is falling off, curtains put on awkward or uneven, NO BRAKES! If i was to guess i would say a bunch of 5 year old put this camper together, unfortunately for us we can not take the camper back for LEMON LAWS as the do not apply. But this thing has to spend at least 2-3 months at the dealership to get repairs done for the warranty to work, all the parts have to come from the dealership. I WOULD NEVER IN THE REST OF MY GRANDCHILDS LIFETIME RECOMMEND THIS BRAND TO ANYONE PERIOD.

We purchased this 5th Wheel brand new. This review will look at the Flagstaff from the overall quality and secondly one major flaw that's a problem with most RVs. From the perspective of overall quality we are very happy. So many quality features in the construction.... USA made Dexter Axles w/ self adjusting brakes, Magic Chef Stove/range top, 5/8 plywood floor (glued down), stainless steel sinks...... so much more. Now for the big negative... within the first dozen and a half times in and out the Schwintek slide broke on the 7' long kitchen . With such a small slide it was obvious poor quality of the Schwintek design. We replaces it at our own expense of $1,700. Within another 2 dozen times in and out the slide failed again.. Though I contemplated repairing it and selling the 5th wheel, because of the overall quality of the Flagstaff line of RVs, I decided to have the Schwintek system completely replaced with a Vroom Slide System. So sad to see such a very high quality RV incorporate such an absolutely poor quality slide system. Would I buy another Flagstaff ? Because of the overall quality I would probably say yes. However in negotiating the price I would keep in mind the need to immediately replace any Schwintek systems with a Vroom System. Schwintek is common on many brands of RVs. In my opinion it is a weak link in any RV.

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.

I bought the trailer while still active duty in the military in 2015. We had been living in a 32 ft Denali, which leaked air through the slide-outs bad enough you couldn't keep even the largest of flying insects from coming through the gaps. I chose Cedar Creek 38 CK because it had the washer and dryer in the bedroom slide out, which makes for a much roomier front closet and overall floor plan in the bedroom. As convenient as this seemed at first, it turned out to be a problem which required the slide out floor and external floor to be replaced. Although I have had to make numerous small repairs and modifications on a fairly regular basis (everything from replacing the sliding tracks on the pantry and garbage compartment drawers, replacing the ceiling fan, repairing and replacing the fireplace internal components, to placing angle iron braces underneath the floor to keep the plastic under- compartment panels from falling off while driving down the road) . Since purchasing it I and my wife have lived in the trailer primarily full time, and I must say, that overall, we really like this trailer. The overall quality of the trailer seems to be excellent in comparison to most other fifth wheel travel trailers I have both owned and observed. It holds heat really well, even in the most extreme winter weather. I did end up putting vents around the base of the bed, and in the steps leading up to the bedroom in order to allow for warm-air circulation which definately helps to keep poorly placed water lines from freezing. Likely, the biggest problem I have had is a premature aging of the roofing material. As I could not afford the convenience of a once in a lifetime fiberglass treatment, I simply coated the entire roof with three thick coats of white Flex Seal. So far, it seems to be working. Although the roof never leaked, it certainly would have had I waited much longer. The factory rubber roofing material is supposed to last at least 10 years, it barely made eight. It was developing soft spots and a rough enough texture that it couldn't be cleaned easily without risking tearing the material. Every time I have spoken to the factory about any type of repair or problem, they have always told me I need to bring the trailer to them. This seems to be an avoidance tactic that has worked well enough for the company that they continue to do it.

This floor plan is great for families or if you want to have a separate office space to work remotely. This camper sleeps 9 easily and comfortably. The higher BTU units (2) keeps the camper nice and cold on those warmer days. The garage storage is huge. Also love the 2 refrigerators and ice maker in the outdoor kitchen. The fireplace in the living room can be set to look pretty, but also can be used as a heat source, wonderful on the chilly nights. The control panel's ability to work with the app on your phone is very handy, can check your tank levels, battery levels, control awnings and all the lights. We also enjoy the solar panel which charges the batteries. Highly recommend this camper!

We purchased our 2019 Sandpiper 379FLOK in August of 2018. At first we loved the floor plan and the hydraulic leveling system. When the dealer tried to show how the hydraulic system worked, it overloaded and threw the breaker. When we picked it up in August of 2018 we only had a few items that needed attended. The doors on the bathroom and pantry were already peeling the edges and the slide room floors on the outside showed scrapes where the rollers were bringing them in and out, these were noted on the sales papers and we gave the dealer 1 week to repair. Nothing had been done when we took possession of the unit. We packed it up and started out for Texas from Bartow Florida. That evening, first travel day, the landing legs would not extend and we could not get it off the tow vehicle. That caused a 5 day stay in Tallahassee, FL while their trained staff of mechanics tried to figure it out. We arrived in Texas 9 days after starting out. Setting up we noticed the bedroom slide wouldn't come out all the way to seal the room. 10 days later, the heater stopped working and the closest Camping World was over 70 miles away. Called them for mobile repairs, they didn't offer any. Next month the awning went out, coming back in it bent the awning arms because the fabric rolled up crooked on the tube. Then the recliners (2) stopped working, no heat or massage. Then the converter failed, no 12 volt system, no lights or computer to operate the rest of the RV. The toilet water supply valve sprang a leak, the bathroom fan stopped working cause the blade cracked and fell off the spindle. Then the black tank fell out of the frame, causing a bulge in the belly covering. When it leaked out the sides, thats when we knew something was wrong. After getting a couple of people to help remount the black tank inside the frame, we called warranty again, no mobile service available. Then the Fireplace stopped putting out heat, the microwave inside just stopped working. Tried different electrical recepticals, no luck. The thermostat stopped working, no a/c or heat. The outside kitchen faucet would not turn off, causing immediate replacement by us. The front landing legs started leaking down the legs, the bedroom slide cylinder was leaking on the ground. We were adding 3 quarts of fluid to the system every month, it was going somewhere. Now the hot water heater has a weld crack at the combustion chamber and extended warranty wants us to wait till they can send out an inspector in 4-5 days. This was our 4th purchase of 5th wheel RV, most disappointed with Forest River for lack of quality control.
