We have owned several RV\'s from class A to 5th wheels. We love our Thunderbolt XLR 415AMP. Its roomy, comfortable and meets all our needs. We chose this one because of its size and garage for our razor side by side.
What We do Not love is Forest River\'s stand on Warranty Work and who should do it. We had several issues with our new unit. We purchased it from a well known dealer and took it there for warranty work. On our last attempt to have some warranty work done, the dealer was not going to be able to get to our unit for several weeks. We had an out of state wedding to attend and were taking the RV with us. Our leveling system was having issues. We took it to another reputable dealer and Forest River would NOT cover the cost of the repairs. We have tried to contact them on this several times and even emailed them a copy of the service order. Forest River has not attempted to contact us or reimburse us for the Warranted Repairs. We will surely look at other manufacturers when we buy our next RV.

We purchased our thunderbolt at end of
2015. All we have had is one issue after another. Last year we noticed that there was something going on with the frame. Took it to dealer. After one month it was sent back to manufacturer the frame in many places was not welded or the welding was poorly done and braking apart. Very scary that this would have broken apart while on highway. We and others could have been severely injured. It has taken 6 months for us to have our trailer back. We have a few other issues that need taken care of but the dealer has no time for us. Would never purchase another forest river product, very poor workmanship and no pride in their work

Love this toy hauler!!! It has tons of room in the 14' garage, is nice to have the extra room there for sleeping, dinning or to use as a screened in porch. Living quarters is the same, lots of room, nice big tv in a great location above the door for better viewing and just love the big bathroon and curved shower. Queen bed in the bedroom and lots of storage for clothing. Also nice having the fueling station outside the garage for extra fuel for the motorcycles and such. Can't go wrong with this XLR 395AMP.
