This camper has been a great camper for us. It is big enough with enough storage we have stayed in it for weeks at a time, it is just like a home away from home. It is also easy to pull, it has been through the mountains with no problems, just a dream to pull and stay in. There are no issues with it, the tires are new and the automatic stabilizers and jack make set up a dream. I love using the outdoor kitchen when it is hot to keep the inside kitchen clean. Absolutely nothing I would change about it.

We've used this RV for a few years now. It runs excellent and the open floor plan and lots and lots of storage is fantastic!! We had plenty of room to put in 2 normal full size queen mattresses which are much better than the standard RV-type mattresses. Everything just works and living in it for long vacations is wonderful. Never leaked during rain storms, etc, and plenty of hot water. Really like that the frig and freezer keeps working with the electric goes out as it works on propane as well. No food spoilage! Water heater works on both propane and electric as well, so we have hot water and hot showers even if there's no electric hookup. Really love the internal 4,000 watt generator that starts up at the push of a button if electric hookup is not working for long periods of time or boon docking. :)

Would not recommend Forest River to my worst enemy.i have had nothing but problems with this trailer since purchase in 2015; This is not my first review, however last June one of the windows in the slider literally exploded into a million pieces . When we returned from our holidays took it to be replaced along with a few other problems. Forest River discontinued that design and the windows are not available. Apparently the windows have to be custom made at a cost of $2000. 00. It is now The middle of February and still no windows. So after market sales Forest River just takes the money and run. I have spent so much in the last 9 years I cannot do anything with this trailer

We purchased new with extended warranty. Great for a couple, or family with young kids. Easy to tow, and comfortable. I did many simple upgrades myself to make it more homely. We sis have an issue with the slide out the second year but was repaired under warranty. They also did a couple of recalls, so it feels really solid (ours is 170SSX Platinum with fiberglass walls). Wish it had more outdoor compartments, but it is very practical.

“Lemon”, I had several problems with my 2022 Rockwood Mini Lite 2509S within four months of ownership. The rv dealership I had made my purchase sold to another company. It was and still is extremely difficult to get Forest River Customer Service’s help to get anything repaired and or replaced. The reason behind all of the numerous problems I have with my Rockwood mini lite I was told is because of the Covid and the dealership didn’t do their duty of inspections neither because of the Covid. No one wants to admit the truth for the shoddy workmanship of installation, and using cheap low quality materials that continually fall apart. I have screws back out, the metal that was used is all rusting. I have malfunctioning electrical connections and outlets. I have a malfunctioning power awning, gaping and sagging slide out, faulty water system, and the list goes on and on. My 2022 Rockwood mini lite is a safety and health hazard and I can’t use it in this condition neither sell it in this conditions . I was told the repairs for the labor and replacement of many parts is going to cost in the thousands of dollars. Please spread the word and don’t make my mistake by purchasing a rv by Forest River-Rockwood.

I purchased new about 3 months ago and the trailer pulled really bad. I tow almost 2-3x a week and by far this is the worst experience. Dropped it off at the dealer for major repairs structurally. I was told the following day that the trailer has buckled , the doors are bent , the cabinets and oven are pulling off the wall , the wrong leaf springs were installed and the axles are bad. It has less than 900 miles. Basically in short it was built wrong from the factory. I was asked permission from Forest River to sign a waiver so they could tow it back to the facility to rebuild a brand new trailer. I was given no other options and put on the spot. I declined now knowing I need to pay for an education and go through what will be a long process with the manufacturer. I was sold a bad unit that isn’t safe to be road worthy and have to now shoulder the burden of making a payment , keeping my insurance up to date , keeping my storage spot going and not have a trailer to use. I will keep everyone up to date and will most likely start a social media page to allow others in the same position as myself to have a place to communicate. As of now I’m not signing anything and I just bought the worlds worst trailer that is unusable and the rep was very short as was I. My recommendation would be to research this manufacturer and be mindful of the dealership you buy from. I was just told I’m so many words “ sorry but there is nothing we can do.” Trailers have issues I get that. But if this was a vehicle it would be a lemon and a lawsuit. I hope it doesn’t come to that but as of now I will be pursuing paying for that education and walking through this horrible process.

The worst trailer we have purchased fist trip out the water tank dropped on to the axel. Manufacture told me to take it to the dealer we were in the States at the time. That was only the beginning of the problems. Every time we took it out something went wrong. I have replaced every possible screw with hollow wall screws , which were not measured . Window covering are crooked I have spent over $4000. On repairs on a scale of 1 to 10. Minus 10 . I have so much money I have so money invested in it can’t afford to trade in. I could go on and on but I think you get the idea

Wanted to update my review from last year. This trailer is probably the worst purchase I have ever made. Might want to sit and take a minute to read this. It's detailed. Let me start off by saying I've been camping since I was 6 years old. So I'm definitely not new to this. Nor am I a super boujie person. I'm actually not at all, anyway. After rearranging my cabinets numerous times, I've come to the conclusion that inside storage is a huge problem. When people come to visit for a weekend, literally everyone's clothes (including mine and my daughter's) take up the whole top bunk. The only, one, closet in the bunk room is used for games and crafts for the kids. Clothes aren't able to be stored in the kids room. The only real significant storage is in the pantry which is super deep, but you need to step up onto the slideout step (about inches up) in order to reach in the back. You'd have to put shelves on the shelves to help keep it organized. But don't put too much cause then it starts to warp in. Such as a water gallon or water bottles, soda, whatever. That's definitely got to go on the bottom. Kitchen counter space is so horrible. My toaster and coffee machine take up literally the whole counter, so forget about preparing food near your sink and stove. You'll have to do all that on the dinette table, but make sure the kids aren't at the only table or indoor "play area". Unless you want your kids in bed all day while it's raining . My awning arm broke 7 minutes into a downpour. That was this past summer. Also, the cold water hose under my bathroom sink was never clamped tight enough, and I had about a half an inch of water under the cabinet, which seeped under my shower and into my livingroom under the corener shelves and fireplace. All the wood swelled up with water and mold. I also noticed the floor board seam (under the actual floor) was raising and started to come up through my bathroom floor. Because the front jack was twisted which made the wall panel in my bedroom warp inwards the floor also was creaking. That wasn't fixed over the winter year one (2 months after buying it BRAND NEW) so they are fixing it along with the other newly arised issues, replacing the water damaged wood, and my awning arm. This is winter #2 and both winters it was in the shop getting fixed. So I only used this trailer for literally 6 months. I purchased this trailer May 2022. It was delivered July 2022 due to delivery discrepancies from the dealship- no available personnel & RV shows. Picked up Sept 2022 to fix the front twisted jack, warped bedroom wall panel, a broken USB port and slide out tracking system because it wouldn't completely open or close. Was delivered back to me in May 2023. Awning arm snapped June 2023. Water found from opening bathroom sink cabinet to get cleaning supplies and found molded warped wood June 2023. End of July (ONLY APPOINTMENT AVAILABLE) the dealership came to fix water leak, covered under extra roadside and site warranty. Put in awning arm which ended up being the wrong size (too short). Oh, which then, while putting up the new, short arm, accidently tore/ separated the seam of the awning connecting to the top of the trailer. Only then did I find out that it was actually a manufacturer defect and was a recall due to the faulty and wrong glue. Go figure. But I was never notified about it before that or even after. They assessed the damage and decided I should call and arrange for them to pick it up for the winter so they can make all necessary repairs at the shop since they would have to lift the trailer to fix the floor beam and find out why the bedroom floor is creaking. So overall this thing has been a nightmare and it's been a huge headache. Couldn't even imagine if I actually used this trailer as a "travel" trailer which it is designed to be. After all warranties and extra add ons for road side assistance I spent almost $50,000 on something I've only used for 6 months. I have about $35,000 left on my loan. I'm just over it.
