Poor workmanship on this unit as the putty that goes behind the trim that covers the joint between the front and sidewalls hardens and allows water to seep in behind (still looks ok from the exterior). The fiberglass skin then separates from the cheap luan plywood that is part of the skin due to water. Had to take the unit to a experienced fiberglass repair shop and he was amazed at how cheaply the assembly was done and how unsafe something such as this could be on a major highway (Trans Canada in this case). Also had an axle problem, due to poor quality control and after 4,000 dollars spent on the fiberglass and axle repairs I feel the unit is as it should have been done at the factory. Would not recommend their product unless you are willing to spend some money right off the start to correct the poor workmanship. I am writing to Transport Canada as well as both of these issues could be serious on a major highway to both the user and other traffic.

Bought new in 2017 and have made multiple trips across the country. Love the layout and versatility. We dry camp regularly with our UTV in the Arizona desert. Extremely disappointed with the complete lack of quality of this RV. Debris, nails and staples, wearing thru the floor, metal shavings and saw dust constantly falling from behind the microwave, when traveling. Previously owned a 2007 Forest River Rockwood travel trailer and was very happy with it.

Not very happy with our purchase. The on demand water heater has never worked right so are replacing with a standard water heater. On our way to AZ for the winter we were pulling in a station to gas up and a tire mechanic at a near by shop noticed our spare tire was loose. While fixing it he noticed the tires had chunks coming off on the inside. As they were replacing the tires they noticed the lee springs were undersized for the camper and the tires had been hitting the underside of the camper when we went over bumps. We replaced those and the shackles with ones rated for the camper when fully loaded. Could have been a serious accident had we lost the tires going 75 mph! Thank God the tire guy noticed the spare tire dangling! And the charging stations aren’t working! Would not recommend a Forest River!

Nice starter size toy hauler. Spacious interior with all amenities to comfortably boon dock or camp at a campground. Large garage area has plenty of room for all the toys. Easy to tow and has been a great unit over all.

We bought this brand new. It fit our side by side perfectly.It had all the bells and whistles.We camp "off grid".It had a generator,on demand water heater, solar panel, inverter everything. For 2 years we NEVER had a hot shower, we finally had to switch it to an old school water heater and paid a free lance company to install it, the dealer could NOT fix the on-demand one.The inverter drains my batteries as fast as the solar panel charges them.The lights are LED.What a joke.The burn out,or just Don't work. The circuits have been blowing fuses.The kitchen drawers have had to be re-supported and rebuilt.The shower pan had to be supported and could not be used by anyone over a hundred pounds (maybe). Once we used the shower, we found the drain on the shower leaked.. I feel that the products in these trailers are as CHEAP or INFERIOR as they can find.So what does that say about their workmanship?? I would NEVER recommend this or any other Forrest River product to anyone.

Factory & extended warranty support.Purchased new in 2016. 2019 floor in forward bed room soft. Discovered factory defect in vapor barrier not installed properly.Now the whole camper floor is starting to rot out.Talked with Forest River-they said talk to Bretz RV they said -12 warranty not their problem, talk to Portfolio Protection Extended Service Agreement that I am covered until 2021. They said any water Intrusion is not cover. Local repair shop either spend some big money, or see if Insurance will call it a Total Loss. Still making payments on a 27 ft Toy Hauler.
