We purchased our unit used. It was only used a few times for one season. Unit layout is nice but quality is poor. After Bringing it home noticed water dripping from the ceiling outlet. Caulk around the rubber roof along the entire front seam and fixed that. Then, noticed water on floor. Yet another leak around the hot water heater insert (not the heater itself). Again, new caulk and good. Like others have said, my 4 year old could cut neater holes for wiring and saw dust everywhere. Just left there. Good to absorb all the water. Ac freezes up if put on max. No reply from dealer or forest river. Regardless, 1 year is up so on my own. I can tell you these look nice inside and out but be warned, these are not built well. Part of the plywood roof has let go and is pushing against the rubber membrane so only a matter of time before that rubs through. Look at all the issues and it only 1 year old. What will happen in 3 years? If you are interested in parting with your hard earned dollars for a ongoing work project than forest river is your answer. I think if you are handy and very closely examine these every month they may last but my feeling is they are a throw away after 5 to 6 years. If I did not catch those water leaks, the trailer would have been trash in a year. Save your money and look elsewhere than forest river. The reviews are all true. Too bad they just would not put in a little extra. I would be happy to pay 10 or 15% more for a little extra quality.
