My 2021 Hyperlite 2815 has a decent size garage but very little storage room, so living in it for more than a week at a time requires planning. The over all quality is better than expected. Mine is built like a tank. Towing it it's very steady (with a 2500HD, not so much with a 1/2 ton). Factory support is not the best. I had a blowout and damaged the fender. Emailed and called and left messages for XLR three days ago and still no response.

Our first new camper we saw it and fell in love. Until we went camping the first time. The Murphy bed cracked , the shower rivets started popping out, shower turning yellow. Second time out the smoke sector would not stop going off. Third time out the mattress ripped and no heat , we froze and could not find anyone to come and look at it . We called the dealership and they told us to blow it out sometimes bugs get in the vent.. well if you all know this it is probably a $2.00 fix .and what in the world were am I going to blow it out with I am It is not like I carry a compressor when my brand new camper should have heat , and now the camper has a strong smell of propane. Forth trip good grief I am exhausted from all of this by now the camper has a brand new tank in from our last trip and the smell of propane is stronger had to leave all the windows and vents open and when we went to drain the black and grey water out it was leaking from the connections . I have about had it . This camper has been out a total of four times and $ 28,000 I should not have any problems I am so over this camper. GRRR I AM SCARED TO TAKE IT OUT.

I used to be an RV Tech back in the 90s I bought this 2019 Forest River Wolfpack 25pack12+ because I love the floor plan but upon receiving it I noticed the slide out had a half inch gap between the floor and the slide out wall I was reimbursed for $500 to repair it myself. But on further inspection I really noticed how cheap the quality was on the paneling for example there was a small piece of tape on the paneling and a few stickers and I peeled them off in the Finish came with them I noticed everywhere there was the same on the paneling the same tape was cracked I contacted Forest River Manufacturing to see about getting the same tape and they told me I had to go through a distributor which they said I could not get it unless I brought it in and they did to work. The build quality is extremely poor for example everywhere they made a cutout they left the cutout and all the sawdust hidden back behind the cabinets they did not clean up their mess making for a great mice nest. Here's another example if you ever mop your floors where your counters are if they get wet they will swell in the Finish will come off very little moisture causes them to swell very poor quality and cabinets overall the trailer looks extremely nice but don't expect it to last for long it looks extremely nice but it's extremely cheap there are there is absolutely no quality put into this trailer at all I guess that's what makes it affordable if you like to throw your money away. I have been spending months making repairs to this trailer and have the stuff I cannot get I have pictures to back everything up if you have questions please contact me bobby bailey1968@gmail.com And I will be glad to share pictures with you for example like the Dometic toilet 300 is most of them are defective they have a leaky flusher valve which causes sewage water to leak back behind the toilet plus the flush valve itself are very poorly designed most of them crack and leak. The door's on them are very poorly designed all they are is plastic on one side styrofoam and fiberglass on the other side absolutely no structure at all. I am pretty sure anybody that owns a Forest River trailer can back me up if they look back behind their cabinets where the water heater is where the furnace is underneath the shower and any place that they made a hole they did not clean up their mess. Good luck on finding Parts you have to go through a dealership and they want to do the work so they can collect the money you're much better off finding a different brand of trailer I would stay away from the Forest River travel trailers as much as possible unless you are filthy rich and have money to throw away. I purchased my trailer at Camping World in Wentzville Missouri I would stay away from anything Camping World they promised that they did a full inspection upon the trailer and lied and charged me for it and they also forced me to purchase Good Sam which will not back up their warranties for example they are conditioner unit went out on my trailer they told me I had to hop on my way back over to Camping World to have them fix it they will not fix it unless you do don't be suckered into purchasing Good Sam they will not back up their work. Like I said I have taken pictures made copies of everything and I'm willing to share it with anybody who's willing to listen so they don't get screwed themselves.

I bought my 2007 All American Sport CKTS 3 axle Toy Hauler used in 2009. Towed it 300 miles to the NM Mountains and lived in it for 8 years at 7300 Ft. Perfect for one person and the garage housed my motorcycle securely. The first year NM had a 100 year blizzard and I discovered that toy haulers "in general" are 3 season trailers (not 4 season). The generator was a life saver during power outages. Solution: more insulation in ceiling, in the enclosed bottom, and over the windows; plus added 25K BTU furnace in main living area. I towed it to NM with a small block 1 ton pickup with no issues on the plains but the truck was at its limits on mountain grades. The job finished and we use it to support my families recreational activities. I have towed it 20K miles since then with no issues but I did upgrade my pickup to handle mountain grades better!

We purchased our 23 Riverstone toyhauler new from Terrytown RV. The quality from the factory left much to be desired. Terrytown did work to resolve numerous manufacture issues. Paint issues, fit and finish issues inside and out. Torn slide bottoms. We came from a 40 ft DRV pre buyout byThor. There is no comparison in any area for quality inside or out between our pre-Thor DRV and this Riverstone. That being said, I thought the current DRVs had downgraded in quality significantlyafter being bought by Thor, which is why we decided to try Riverstone. The interior design has much wasted space. If you happen inside one, look at the kitchen garbage set up and it will give you a clue of the poorly thought out use of space. The bedroom dresser drawers are pretty... But too small they only hold 2 men's size t shirts. Really...2,? I do love the front bedroom closet design and I do love the behind the TV hidden pantry. Huge wasted space can be found over the dishwasher and the vent area beside the stove. Also the cupboard next to the laundry is 3 ft of wasted space above. For the price, retail 239k, it should be 5 stars in quality and comfort but it is barely 3 stars. I want to love it, and I can't find anything better in a toyhauler, but quality just isn't what it used to be or should and could be.

In a world of fluff reviews, I'm going to give you a real one. First of all, you are not going to pull this trailer with a car. That is ridiculous. The day I brought mine home, the fan in the bathroom stopped working. Then my stereo stopped working. Then my hot water heater stopped working. Today my refrigerator stopped working. This is the biggest piece of crap I have ever bought in my life. I would strongly caution anyone from buying a Rockwood Geo pro. Of course I know someone will respond about how good theirs was, but I cannot speak about theirs, just mine. From day one this thing has been breaking down. Today is the last straw. Very cheap and poorly constructed. But if you want to spend $20,000 on a piece of crap, by all means have at it.

Ernie and David in sales were a pleasure to work with, my only issue there I stated I wanted a hitch with weight distribution and sway control. Was sold a hitch being told we use this one all the time and has sway control. I have a serious sway issue so in looking for the cause spoke to Blue Ox and was told what I had was an entry level hitch and had minimal sway control. I believe it was lack of knowledge not dishonesty on sales part. After one outing and having a serious sway problem started looking for the cause. I found three of the four tires to have the start of broken belts. Contacted the dealer and was told by Jody in service he found that hard to believe and told me they couldn't just replace tires. He did give me the phone number of the warranty company so I could contact them. Upon further inspection I found hitch was installed incorrectly, spoke to Ernie who is looking into what can be done. Two days and no response. I paid 600 dollars for service I don't believe was done and purchased extended warranty with tire warranty. So on a 2022 trailer that was supposed to be serviced I'm out 600 plus for new tires and have to correct the hitch myself service department is an absolute joke and should be avoided at all costs. Seems once they have you money your on your own. Buyer beware of Manheim location. Hopefully the other two locations have better service

Awesome 29 ft Toy Hauler. NO problems at all, take care of it and it will take care of you. Your house will fall apart too if you dont maintain it. Floor Plan is well thought out. AC works Great,12v Fridge is awesome. We leave it plugged in to house when not camping. The fiberglass on the black label addition is so sharp looking. I don't see any reason for a bigger unit. I pull the 22RRBL with a 2020 Ram 1500 2wd Hemi Night edition with Tow pkg. I use a Blue Ox weight distribution system. Also awesome. No sway or Huck a Buck. I stay under 65 mph at all times. make sure your payload is correct and always check tires everytime you move Rig, We also use a TPMS on trailer peace of mind. We travel with a 92lb Labrador Retreiver aka Koda Bear

We took delivery in June of 2021 and were only able to use it 2 weekends. It had numerous minor issues that I was able to correct. This past summer we were filling the water tanks and heard a very loud "pop" and thought it came from a next door loading dock. We started down the road and a driver honked and pulled us over. We were dragging a metal support underneath (the loud noise). I was able to remove the other end of the damaged support. When we got home I crawled under to discover one of the water tanks fell out and was riding on the top of one axle. Contacted Forest River and they said to get it into the local dealer. Called them and the soonest appt. was 2 months! I crawled under and took down the coroplast liner and had to drill a hole in the water tank to empty it to be able to handle it. What I discovered was the water tanks were set in a narrow channel and when full would elongate and fall out of the channel. A design flaw! Took pictures and sent to Forest River and had several conversations/emails. They would not compensate me for materials or time to fix this issue. I asked for another year warranty extension. They flatly refused! This is zero money out of their pocket. We have a very short camping season in CO. and I could not wait 2 mos. for an appmt (end of August and our season) I had to make the repairs to be able to use the RV the remainder of our summer. I REINFORCED BOTH WATER TANKS WITH HEAVY STEEL CROSS BRACES AND NO FURTHER ISSUES. I would never consider another Forest River product again. NO customer service or willingness to stand behind their product! They tout their new state of the art final inspection facility. What a joke.
