Forest River V-Cross travel trailer exterior

Forest River V-Cross travel trailer exterior - V front  An interesting aspect of the Forest River V-Cross is of course the aerodynamic V-shaped front.  This is used for different purposes in the 5 floorplans available. 

The 28VFBS uses this as a bathroom, the toy-hauler model - the 28VFLX - uses it as a wardrobe/entertainment center.  Bunks are arranged at the front of the 31VBHS and the 31VRLS uses it as the front bedroom area.  The other arrangement - the 32VKS has a really nice arrangement with the front V arranged as a kitchen.  You can see these arrangements on the floorplans below.  But first we show 2 pictures of the interior.  These are of the 32VKS:

Forest River have created a wide range of floorplan arrangements for the V-cross:

Forest River V-Cross travel trailer floorplans - smaller units
 Forest River V-Cross travel trailer floorplans - larger units

We've commented upon the use of the V space formed at the front of the V-Cross but the wide range of floorplans is really innovative and certainly different.  Each appeals to different family needs.  The 28VFLX has a toy hauler facility and ramp door.  All of the other arrangements have a queen bed - located at the rear except with the 31VRLS where it's at the front together with a really nice wardrobe and storage layout.  The longest model - the 32VFKS - has the bedroom at the rear, the living area in the middle and the front giving a really nice kitchen layout with windows and good use of the space.

MaggieWe had a 2014 Windgammer 3008W that started swaying the minute we got on I90. We had Reese sway bars on the TT. 5 hours on I90 a big truck went by and the Wingammer started swaying. It took us off the interstate and it flipped over and came off the hitch. TT totaled and truck had $7000 worth of damage to the back. V nose is not aerodynamic , a shape like a airplane is. Beware V nose sway more than a normal TT. We bought a Open Range Light fifth wheel,no more V nose for us.
kleinertv-nose kitchen,wetbath, 2fuel station, instant water heater next to the stove to use the stove vent. The roof will be all solar and the AC will be a window AC. !00gal fresh water is nice and a way to recycle the toylet waste if you AMERICANS will think like SPACE X is to open up the box and you see how we can build LIKE HONEYCONE. I also want to have storage above the tires on each side for four 6 volt dc batteries on each side for dual solar system. No vents on the roof. VENT |S ARE TO GO OUT THE SIDES A toy hauler can be 7'x17' or 8'x 19 to 22. No steel anywhere and no wood. Fibergrass sides. the roof firbergrass or metal.I BET I HAEV TO BUILD IT
VernonWondering whether the sofa can be removed and replaced with a couple of recliners. Love my Lazy Boys.
TimWe purchased a 2011 V-Cross with front kitchen and love it. There is a lot of storage and it is perfect for a small family or a couple. Our first trip was to the mountains and we pulled it with a Dodge 3500 Dually and average 15 miles to the gallon through the mountains for more than 100 miles and that included sitting on the highway for over 30 minutes for an accident with the motor running. Not bad mileage for up hill and down hill driving. On flat ground I have gotten about 18 miles to the gallon towing the unit. Just like pulling anything behind a vehicle you know that it is there but with the sway kit there is very littl to no noticeable movement/drag. The V-Cross has surprised us with quality craftsmanship and cabinetry. The unit looks great and after shopping around for several months it met all of our needs and wants. Would definitely recommend the V-Cross and if there were any changes we would make it would be the leveling jacks but, that to me is something that can be done at anytime. Great product!!
Chuck(ie)Anybody know what it's like to tow one of these? Seems like the turning radius would be somewhat decreased, unless the ball comes WAY back from the tow vehicle.
Roy BensonWanting to know what kind of a difference in mileage? please email me at the_bensons at - 1/9/2011
GeneLike the idea of the pointed front with differing uses. Not sure I know which I like best Went to a dealer for FR and they only had the one with the kitchen at the front. Nice but i'd like to see more arrangements. Is the V really fuel efficient and why aren't all trailers like it if it is?
Bob KRealy like the concept. Don't see why all trailers are not v nose - you gain space and reduce drag.
charles patonLove forest river hated the dealer we bought it from. forest river have given us a lot of support and i really think they're a good company we have the surveyor and it's a really good rv. chuck.
