We bought this trailer after looking at many different models at many different dealerships. We were patient. We wanted one within our budget and made to last. So far we are very pleased with this trailer. Our maiden voyage was a complete success, and though my son pulled the towel rack off the wall in the bathroom on accident, everything worked smoothly and there were no hiccups. This trailer, for the price, is absolutely the best. It's light enough that my 2006 Ford F150 XLT Triton motor pulls it just fine. Slight inclines and hills don't seem to bog me down, though I have to admit I haven't taken it to the mountains yet. The kitchen counter top was one solid piece (Corian) and NOT laminate. This was a big selling point for us, as it highlights the quality of this RV. The kitchen sink is solid, not cheap plastic, and the toilet is cast porcelain, not cheap plastic. Also, the bunk beds are wide enough (FULL) for a comfortable sleep. Each bunk has it's own light. The awning, the black and grey water tanks worked and flushed perfectly, and the battery quickly recharged when the trailer was plugged in. The stabilizing jacks came down fine and the tongue jack, though slow, lifted and lowered the trailer without a problem. The back door to the bathroom is heaven sent, as my kids didn't need to run in and out of the main door to get to it. Hands down this is a solidly made trailer. The dining seats have drawers you can pull in and out, not storage doors, which makes getting things in and out easy. Look for stuff like that when choosing an RV. The entertainment center also has all the plugs and cable outlets right where the TV hangs, so you don't have to drill holes to get to them. Forest River did an excellent job on all the details of this unit. That is why we chose this trailer.
