I thought we bought the Audi or the Mercedes of the pop-up trailers. At the Portland RV show, it looked awesome. Outside with the black awning, inside with the big fridge, the comfortable dinette, a lot of things to like. The door had to be replaced the first day.After six months (ten nights and 4000 miles), it's a big disappointment. Everything now looks flimsy, half of the inside screws are gone, lost two drawer knobs, one of the wheel bunk bed is loose, the outside fridge grill disappeared between Denver and SLC...I didn't know FR plants were located in China, so now it's not a surprise anymore. Oh wait a second. They actually are build in Indiana. I thought "made in America" means tough workers, quality assurance in every unit built. Sorry, not mine. The inside of a 2005 Coleman Niagara HW is still looking better than our 2017 FR.

Ordered a brand new HW27SC in March 2015 and took delivery in May 2015. The slide out made for floor space and having grey and black water tanks were a nice feature for a PUP. 3 burner gas stove with oven, microwave, 4 CU fridge with freezer, and a fully enclosed toilet/shower were what sold me on this floor plan. That and fully loaded it is easy to tow 3800# with a 230 lb tongue weight with a V6 4Runner.
Here are the problems I have had:
First time I ran the water pump the water filter leaked. I fixed that with some plumbing tape.
The grey water PVC pipe started leaking after a couple of camping trips. Was fixed under warranty at the dealership.
Sink faucet was faulty fixed under warranty.
Toilet valve ruptured and sprayed water out the back where the water line was so it leaked all over the floor. I had to pay to replace that.
The Fantastic Fan in the roof leaked 2 months after it went out of warranty which I sealed myself but now the fan doesn't work.
Overall, most of the problems have been minor and no damage was done for any of the leaks. Everything else has worked as it should and considering my experiences with past RV's these issues were pretty minor and easy to correct. We use it regularly and it is still in great shape over a year and a half later. Towing it tracks fine and the tires are still in great shape.
