I like the floor plan for my self and my wife. i found the workmanship a bit lacking. the wall panel in the bedroom area kept popping off the wall. I suggested that the panel was perhaps a bit long. The warranty work was to pull the seam tape and re-tack the panel. It popped lose again. then the warranty work was to take off the seam tape, and re-tack the panel again. The replacement tape is wrinkled and I am not happy. The trailer came with some third market batteries. Dealer replaced them with Excide batteries upon my insistence. There was a loose wire in the wiring for the airconditioner unit. had to have it researched and repaired took weeks. the floor in the shower was not supported and it felt like the vacuum-form plastic floor was going to break. had to have a wooden block installed under the floor. The shade retainers were installed into the wall panel without regard as to how they would line up with the bottom of the window shades. about two inches too narrow. The night stand area in the sleeping quarters is so flimsy that the plug outlet came loose the first time I used it. The O-2 sensor is constantly on and drained the batteries flat. When I was charging the batteries, the alarm went off. I now have it on constant charge. The hardware on the screen door was misaligned so that the screen would not stay closed. The medicine cabinet catch was bent in an attempt to make it work even though it was misaligned with the catch on the door. The shower heads inside and outside were badly plugged with what is reportedly anti-freeze residue. All these things were discovered while we were on our first RV campout with friends and their units. They laughed at me for having purchased a pig wearing lipstick. Now I am NHTSA Recall for a wire that may be pinched against the chassis and trailer body. A possible fire hazard. and to have the paneling joint re-taped. Hopefully the abundance of bugs will have been worked out very soon.
I come from a manufacturing background. There seems to have been little or no consideration for Quality Control in the manufacturing of this unit.

Waste of money take your time research
Read reviewsabout different manufacturers. Great layout enough storage space but very poorly made. Had many issues when we first got it. Many issues were resolved but now just 2 years later my paint and decals and literally peeling and flaking off my camper.and because my 1 year warranty is out they will only send parts and we are responsible for over 700.00 in labor costs to fix their poor quality.

What we like: Faucet in kitchen sink, flooring, aesthetic look, bathroom toilet
What we don't like: Supports for kitchen table into a bed broke on first, wires not functional for rear camera, TV antenna not working, entire valence and drapery unit actually fell off the wall of the camper on 2nd time out, we noticed entire valence unit on another window was also pulled away from the wall, doors and walls seem to be just covered with a paper like covering and everything chips and scratched extremely easily, refrigerator does not run on gas, it does run on inverter but gas is not an option. We had a previous camper for 11 years and have never had problems like we have had with this camper. The inside looks nice, but it is appearing that this camper is put together very cheaply and is not going to last.

Have Used this RV on Several occasions. Enjoyed our camping in it very much. To the point that we want to go Full Time. We are now looking for a towable to do just that. Bigger. More storage for extended traveling.
This Trailer is perfect for shorter outings and getaways.

We have owned our camper for a little over a year now. This is the first brand new camper we have owned.this is also the poorest built camper we have owned. Save your money ($30,000.) for us.this is to be our forever home for retirement,and it looks so tacky with all the decals bubbling and peeling off,,,,very embarrassing.the layout is quite nice,but the quality of the workmanship on the inside is very cheaply done ,falling apart,,,etc. I would highly recommend not to buy a Forest River camper.From one very unhappy customer..

This trailer is still for sale, now located in middle Tennessee. I lived in it for a month while looking for a house to buy and overall it is very comfortable for 1 or 2 people. A bike must be unloaded to have total access to the living area, but I did keep my bicycle inside with no problem since I did not use the back door.

Trailer has been the mainstay of our outdoor experience for the past two years. We have encountered only one issue that had been started prior to our ownership. The one problem was for the electrical-inverter had been abused. The woodwork inside has held well, the completeness of the unit is nice: stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, antennae, jacks and sizeable gray and black holding tanks. The outside has been maintained by us, covering the camper in winter with a single tarp and tube surrounding the air conditioner. Have towed some fourteen weekends for the past two years and spent two weeks in it without problems.
