Ken BolingerI'm a Forest River fan. We have the Salem LE 19BH. Very small but very easy to tow. No slide but everything we need. And the price was amazing. I look at many of these reviews and wonder why so many people pay so much money. The Salem is good quality at a real good price.
RossiterReally like Forest River. We have the 2008 235RKS Surveyor rear slide. Wonderful RV and great floorplan with the king bed slide and the twin bunks. Big enough for our family but small enough to tow easily.
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.
John ParkesI've always been a fan of Forest River. I've had 2 of their RVs and been totally satisfied both times.
Greg HWe have a 2007 Forest River. This is our first RV and we've been very happy with it. The bunk beds work fine and it's perfect for a family of 4. No real problems and it tows well. We've had a few minor issues dealt with by the dealer and they are not easy to deal with but Forest River are very helpful when you talk to them. I would certainly buy Forest River again but I would choose a different dealer.
