We love the floor plan of this model. Plenty of storage inside & out. Generator problems from day one. Rough start & back fired. Did not work in western states due to the heat. Could not run Generator for AC or Frig. Top molding falling down, frig would not keep cold - warranty fixed it. Blind shade fell off, had to glue the shade back on. Rear chassis bolt fell off off while driving. Recall fixed that. Molding under frig falling apart from moisture & water dripping from frig. Had to add anti sway bar and anti roll bar in rear. Drives much better now. Headlights are way too dim - need LED headlights Overall very happy with RV.

Absolutely love the Forest River brand. The manufactures thinks of “smart features” that most other brands do not. This beast drives easily and manages the mountains with ease. We have 3 teenage kids and they all have space to spread out while driving and for sleeping! I love the extra large refrigerator. The shower is bigger than most I have been in and gives you a bit more room to maneuver. Love the king bed with power outlets on both sides for charging. Overall it is well built and I can’t think of a thing we would add.

We own this camper and couldn't be happier with it. Long road trips are super comfortable with the size and ability to maneuver with the slides in. Plenty of space and a TON of storage in this thing, inside and out. We have three kids that consistently camp with us and the space is AMAZING! Even with their stuff, that is typically scattered wherever they can find room, it still doesn't feel cluttered. The bunks are perfect whether we're camping with or without kids for extra storage and then sleeping when needed. The bunk above the cab is a must have feature in these newer class A's. I cannot say enough good things about this coach, it's a game changer for family camping!

These RVS are very poor quality. I have 40000 miles on mine and the furniture looks terrible. Wear marks everywhere. Both Captains Chairs in the front need replace all ready. The Norcold refrigerator never gets cold. 45 degrees. I do maintenance on everything all the time. Door latch has broke twice. $350 each. Slide motor gear box went out $100. Front step motor when your $150. Front dash got rebuilt because it’s plastic plate? New radio. Furrion tvs are crap. In a nut shell I’d save my money and get something else.

Had numerous problems with the generator from day one on. It drives poorly, so I had suspension upgraded. The air conditioner is super loud. The engine and transmission are good. The kitchen sink has already been replaced (it started leaking) despite not even being 2 years old. The interior storage is good. The locks on the exterior storage compartments are of despicable quality. The toilet stopped flushing this month. The build quality is bad, even by RV standards.

My slide out did not want to work bad module. My back AC did not work and low water pressure. DO NOT BUY! To many other problems to list. I’m not rich and I cannot afford a 250k RV should of stuck with a expensive travel trailer. I have had 3 of them not as many problems on all 3 in 20yrs as this pos FR3. I feel like I went down in quality.
