The positives. The floor plan works well whether it is for a family taking bikes & kayaks for a vacation or for those using it for motorcycles. the kitchen is is very functional, extremely nice countertops, cabinets, and entertainment center. The unit tows easily & easy to level manually, no automatic jacks here. The negatives (which are many.) The biggest is shoddy electrical wiring. On our first trip from NC to the Florida Keys, our two slides would not open, resulting in a grueling 16 hour drive back to the dealer which took exactly 2 months to repair. This happened again in 6 months later with another 6 weeks spent at the dealer getting all the\"bugs out.\" It is a large unit with only 30 amp service.....not nearly enough....don\'t use the air conditioner & the microwave at the same time unless you enjoy tripping fuses. The unit has only 1 air conditioner that comes no where near cooling the camper on very hot days. First River is very slow to respond & reimburse emergent roadside repairs expenses that are plainly covered & clearly spelled out in the warranty. So despite the very nice features that this unit has, buyer beware on the serious electrical deficiencies of this toy hauler.

Bought it, brought it home, first rain storm had water leak in the roof, it's at the dealer now 3 weeks not in the shop yet!. Haven't got to use it. The initial walkthrough was poor, the literature that come with the unit is not good, none of it gives instruction on how to work things. When the slide is in you can't get to the toilet. I bought it at an RV show the saleman didn't tell me it was last year's model, dummy me didn't think to ask, if I ever get to use the thing maybe I'll be happy, but right now I am not.
