Problems, problems, problems!!! Pocket doors broke twice so far in transit. Dump hose bracket broke in transit. We lost our hose and ruined bracket due to dragging on pavement. Many minor issues that we had to return our RV for warranty repairs causing usage unavailability. I think we purchased a poorly built and/or designed vehicle. This is our first RV and are very frustrated and disappointed with our choice.

I would like to start by saying that the floor plan, the amount of storage space and two slides are great for a toy hauler. Also the unit is very light for towing. Now for the problems, which are way too many for a new camper. The couch slide gets jammed sideways going in or out. While we were at the Grand Canyon, AZ and Boulder City, NV the temps were 107 to 117. The AC breaker kept tripping all day so we had to pack up the dog and drive around in the truck all day. The frig did not cool like it should but I think that was because it was so hot in the camper. The front door is hard to open and close and pops open going down the road even though I double look it. I had to put a bungie cord on it. We had a lot of trim work fall off of the walls because of poor stapling. There were numerous interior finish issues. Now the power is out to one of the couch recliners which controls the light, massage and heat. I would not buy another one of these campers.

We like everything about the living space and space for side by side. Losts of storage. We are having some issues pulling it with a three-quarter ton Dodge diesel short bed with sway bars. It likes to push you around on the road.Anybody out there having the same issue?

The biggest advantage I experienced with the Forest River Toy hauler was how light it feels when towing, presumably due to the all aluminum framing. A 1/2 ton will pull it comfortably. In the three years I owned mine I never had a failure with anything other than a blown tire. All the appliances are high quality as is the construction of cabinetry, which is abundant for a TOY HAULER. Even double wall cabinets with garment bar in the garage area. Air blows well throughout the unit and the heat is almost too good. Another huge advantage is the dinette slide-out. This unit has a four foot slide out vs. 30-36 on most other models. This significantly increases usable space. I really don't have anything negative to say...it fit my needs perfectly. I am trading up to a larger Toy Hauler as the toy list is growing and my space is shrinking. You can be sure it will be a Forest River model.

We love our camper. It has had some issues with fit and finish but all have been resolved. I bought the biggest camper I could pull so the floor plan works well for us but we would have preferred the 29'. We love the screen door on the back of the garage door. We also love the back entry door. We would recommend this camper.

Great floor plan for a toyhauler! Back is not only for toys but makes a great separate living space! Extremely lightweight, is half ton towable. Slide out gives you the extra space you need for friends!
