JeanieAnyone own or owned a 2013 Flagstaff Shamrock Hybrid camper and if so can you give me any info. Thinking about purchasing one. Also, how much weight do the beds hold. We were told up to 250lbs. Not for a couple? Also, did you have many problems with it?Re: Forest River Shamrock expandable travel trailer
Tiger campers We have a 2014 Surveyor Sport and are also experiencing water and/or a oily residue in the cargo area. The storage doors have been changed and we still are having the problem. Has anyone else had this problem?Re: Forest River Surveyor travel trailer
LeeI bought a brand new 2109s in 2012 and have had a lot of issues with it. I am really easy on these kind of things but this has been really bad. First the electric side of the water heater would not work. The holding tank indicator system showed everything full even when all the tanks were empty. Had to replace the circuit board on the panel. The slide stopped working due to a sheared pin in the motor. The really big issue was the fact that the thing almost burned up in a campgrounds in Florida due to a wiring defect. The trailer was on fire and was minutes from total loss. We had to replace the hot water heater because it was destroyed in the fire. Forest River did pay for some of the damage but they were really hard to deal with. We were just lucky to be at the campground when the fire started. I have had to do a lot of repair on this unit for being brand new. Buyer beware. Re: Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite travel trailer
RuthWe own a fifth wheel Made by forest river. They are nice as pie when you. Buy one, then when you call them for help, they never return your calls,we need parts that only they have, called them and they never call back, so think twice before you buy from forest river, they don't care, customer service is awfulRe: Forest River Cedar Creek fifth wheel
Bob from KYHi everyone, I went out of my way to purchase a 2015 Gray Wolf 28BHKS from Cheyenne Camping Center in Walcott, IA. I saved at least $4500. Although it was a 500 mile drive it was all good, had a great time traveling their and back and it helped me get used to pulling a TT (have a Class A but decided to go with a TT this time). At the dealer I spent at least 2 hours checking out the RV from the top of the roof to the undercarriage and only had a couple very minor items that they happily fixed. Then the service manager spent at least 1 ½ hours with me to explain the operation and use of every item in the RV, what to expect and explained how the RV should be serviced. Wow.. I was not expecting such great service. Now, I have read the posted reviews and would like to add my two cents. TV antenna and the boost, please remember to switch the boost switch on when using the TV. A little red light will illuminate when it is on. If the boost is not on then don’t expect to get really good reception. This is not a Forest River manufacturing issue it is a user/operator problem, read the instructions. I too have rabbit ears in the house and get 8 to 10 channels but in the RV with the boost switch “ON” I get really good reception from 25 channels. Water leaks/seeps etc. follow the manufacturers recommended service and inspection instructions and you will not have leaks/seeps. Before I signed the dotted line the service manager and I inspected the roof, windows, vents, doors for seals and sealing. Then I knew I had a well-sealed RV. Now I follow the manufacturer’s service/inspection guidance. I learned from experience with my Class A that you must inspect and repair/replace seals and sealant regularly (at least twice a year) in order to prevent leaks. This is the nature of the beast no matter what brand of RV you buy. RV’s flex a lot, from sun heating and cooling and then riding down the road at 60+ MPH (that’s like being in a really heavy storm). And we all know how smooth the RV camping site roads are…ha..ha. I failed to do this with my Class A and my kitchen vent leaked damaging the ceiling and floor… $$$$$, but that was my fault, not the manufacturer or the dealer. Someone wrote about tire ware, I agree it is a problem that requires a bit of research and maintenance. Abnormal tire ware can attributed to improper and over loading of the RV and not regularly rotating the tires. And for the axel issues, I have not ever had any although I do my best to keep the RV off the curbs while turning and for sure out of the ditch too. Those road hazards have damaging affects to both tires/wheel and axels… my car trailer is proof of that. Also I have found it to be very useful, having good side mirrors on the tow vehicle nice to see what is coming up. One advantage my Class A had was a rear TV monitor. I would turn it on when traffic was getting heavy or when I was in a construction area. Currently I am in the process of mounting a rear view mounted TV camera on my TT and placing the monitor over my rear view mirror. They are not expensive and add a bit of safety and security (what a novel touch). Keep on camping from Bob!Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer
FrankWe purchased a 2010 Cedar Creek and have had some minor problems with the exception of one big problem. The slide on the entrance slides has two vertical sliding windows on each end which we have determined have no weep holes. When it rains the water fills up the bottom window channel and pours into the rv onto the slide out floor. We have had it in several times to have this checked out and nobody could make it leak. Well, we have pictures and video of the water pouring in. Now the subfloor in the slide out has dropped, torn the vinyl flooring, and is rotten on each end of the slide out. Close to $4000.00 to have this repaired. The windows are the problem and the leaking has absolutely nothing to do with owner neglect. So far Forest River does not want to help at all and they should pay for the repairs even though it is out of warranty. However, having it repaired would be useless unless they had a solution for the leaking windows. Very in satisfied with the rv and Forest River. We would never buy a FOrest River again.Re: Forest River Cedar Creek fifth wheel
Larry cheathamWe just purchased a 2014 wildwood in june after just a handful of trips its falling apart at the seams literally. First weekend out wiring problems. This rv is a jokeRe: Forest River Prime Time LaCrosse travel trailer
FlugelbonemanWe have had a 2010 Rockwood 2304s since new. It is the best trailer I have owned and it is #12. Tows better, floor plan exceptional, workmanship and finish average. I am astounded at the comments on this website compared to my experience and others with similar FR products.Re: Forest River Rockwood ultra lite travel trailer
JulieI have owner this camper since 2008 and have never regretted this purchase! I am a teacher so I have summers free. I wanted to keep my 2 boys busy and away from the TV and video games all summer so we camped as much as possible. They were 9 and 11 when we started spending summers in this camper and we would stay out for at least 5 of my 8 weeks off. With all of their running in and out and a 100lb. dog that camped with us the camper is still in Greta shape. I have never had a problem or had to replace anything other than the water heater coil which is going to happen with that kind of use and hard water. That's it nothing else. My brother owned a flagstaff of similar style and always commented how much better mine was constructed. If/when I upgrade I will go straight for a Forrest river brand! Happy vamping!Re: Forest River Shamrock expandable travel trailer
donovanRob, you need to check out the Forest Rivers owners group aka f.r.o.g. they meet each year in Goshen indiana, anyone that owns a forest river trailer can join and the reason why I am saying this is they has a service center there that beats any dealer out there, how would you like to get most of the repair work you need done for FREE you you all heard me right, that issue you are having rob, more and likely they will fix it for free, everyone go join the forum at Forestriverforums.com the rally was for like ten days and I sent the brand new 2015 trailers and motorhomes before the dealers even seen them, took a tour of the factory where they are built and attended seminars about different products and how they help you better understand the camping worldRe: Forest River Rockwood Roo expandable travel trailer
SteppenoutWe have owned two trailers from Forest River. We bought both of them brand new. We keep them on a permanent site and we don't have kids or pets. The first trailer was a 2007 396FLFB. We bought it because of the beautiful layout. We ordered every option available. The longer we had it the more we found wrong with it. The trailer needed constant repair just to keep the doors working. The slides quit working in the second year. The ceiling in the bathroom rotted out in the fifth year and so it went. I don't know how anyone takes one on the highway. The workmanship was so shoddy I am surprised they put their name on it. When we went to buy the second one we still couldn't find a layout as nice as what Forest River does. So we took another chance. This time we bought a 2014 40' Grand Lodge. Well, Forest River lived up to their reputation. This one is even worse than the first one. Since 2007 they have made everything even cheaper. Even the hide-bed couch doesn't work. The stereo is wired wrong. The vent fan didn't work. Now it looks like we might have a broken header over the slideout. Warranty, if you can get it at all, takes forever. Forest River makes bottom level products. Do a little research. Make a list of the prices on different RVs from the best quality to the lowest quality and see where Forest River fits in. You get what you pay for. Especially in Boats and RVs.Re: Forest River Wildwood travel trailer
LeahMy husband and I purchased a 2015 Grey Wolf 26RL RV a few weeks ago. We immediately had to leave for a job in Illinois. We are from Louisiana, but our RV in Texas. Although we have a dealer in our town they didn't seem interested in our business thus the purchase in Texas. I noticed a few days ago some severe rust on gas line to RVQ hookup and along the I-beam support of the trailer and one of the brackets. I am sickened by this. What should we do??Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer
chuckRockwood 2604. Bought new had nothing but trouble. Slideout wouldn't work on vacation then floor started squeking. Dealer wouldn't fix and Rockwood said haul it to Indiana and we would look at it. Tore wall out fixed it myself. Junk, junk, junk. Sold it at a loss. Stay clear of this unit.Re: Forest River Rockwood ultra lite travel trailer
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.Re: Forest River V-Cross travel trailer
Floradidn't mean I don't like my camper. Lovely space and storage. The dealer is awesome. I guess it is standard the antenna and if needed, I can get an antenna that is stronger. It is standard so is what it is. Grey wolf is a great camper all in all. Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer
Flora JakubekI purchased a 2015 Grey Wolf and was told the antenna options are great, no cranking, good reception in three areas to put tv. Well, not one unscrambled station comes in 15 miles from our home are three stations. Manufactureer was cold and they said it should go 20 miles. should but won't My neighbors has rabbit ears that I attached to the tv. I got 5 stations with that. The dealer is great, but said he can't do anything unless Forest River will. Very disappointed. Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer
ElkyI bought the Cherokee Grey Wolf 29BH 2015 three months ago. Very happy with the layout but very disappointed on the leak problem. We have had a new leak every camping trip n this unit is only 3 months old. Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer
TaylorWe have a 2013 Lacrosse 327 touring edition. It has now turn 1 year old, at the time of this writing we have replaced the 2 refrigerator handles, the wallpaper has bubbles and now the rubber roof has bubbles. The dealer says it is now out of warranty and they can't do anything. I called Prime time and also got sorry it is now out of warranty. This trailer is falling apart. I had a Jayco and after 9 years they replaced the roof free of charge. Do not buy this trailer. Re: Forest River Prime Time LaCrosse travel trailer

Herbert JonesWe just purchases this unit. Everrhing in it worked properly on our maiden voyage of 500 miles. We went to crater lake Oregon. However we had one of the new tires blow out because of a defective sidewall. We were just informed by the dealer that it will be 2-4 weeks before they will receive the relacement tire. Oh for joy the summer is slipping away. Re: Forest River Rockwood ultra lite travel trailer
Happy CamperI have a 2006 Rockwood 2306 with triple bunks. This has been a solid and reliable rig for family camping and early fall hunting trips. No leaks and issues that some others seem to have dealt with. I would buy another Rockwood in a heartbeat!Re: Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite travel trailer
SusanWe purchased a 2012 LaCrosse 301LRS travel trailer. We have had water leaks, problems with the refrig, electrical problems, wheel bearing problems, many cosmetic problems but the most difficult problem is the floor. The lay out of the trailer is lovely but it has been nothing but a bad nightmare. No dealer including the one we bought it from wanted to honor the warranty. We paid cash for the trailer and now we have spent over $6000 in repairs etc.... DO NOT BUY WE PLAN ON HIRING AN ATTORNEY!!!!!!Re: Forest River Prime Time LaCrosse travel trailer
craig rogersWhere could I rent one in upstate NY.to give it a whirl.pull behind my Chevy Silverado 1500 305 v8Re: Forest River Rockwood Roo travel trailer
KENJWe have a 2011 georgetown 378TS there is a TV in main area and one in the bedroom, the one in livingroom plays off the DVD play in motorhome, is the on in the bedroom supposed to play off the DVD. play er that came with motorhome. We have just bought a DVD player and hooked it up to TV in bedroom. The only complaint we have had is the couch/foldout bed, the air mattress leaked right from day one but dealer in canada where we bought it brand new is about as helpful as brick.Re: Forest River Georgetown class A motorhome
John & DorothyWe bought a Rockwood by Forest River in 2004. We had it parked at a campsite for 9 years. Took it off the site and wanted to sell it and did. All the wall were moldy including the floor. We had leaks and they were repaired, called to have it fixed because wetness persisted and still leaked. We lost a lot of money, put up with mole (which we were unaware of). Don't buy a Rockwood. We lost money. Re: Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite travel trailer
Claudine and EDWe purchased a 2014 wildwood xtra-lite travel trailer in March 2014. This camper had the worst Craftsmanship I have ever encountered! There are places where there the cocking is not sticking and our slide out leaks water! This camper is only 3 weeks old! Brand New off the production line! We called the manufacturer and they basically pushed us right back to the dealership and told us that it was the Dealerships fault that they have not contacted them to fix it in over a week! My camper is apparently not the only one with the slide out leak and terrrible workmanship and customer service. ! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAMPER TO ANYONE!Re: Forest River Wildwood travel trailer
ScottPurchased a 2014 Forest River Wildwood DBUD new March 2nd. After one camping trip we took it back to dealer. Floor bubbled up,seal on roof was separating,furnace makes clicking noise so loud family couldn't sleep. Toilet leaked and wallpaper was coming off the wall.Antenna was stuck so could not rotate to get signal.When I brought it to the dealer his words were" This is common with new trailers". Never buying Forest River product again.Re: Forest River Wildwood travel trailer
GarrettMy wife and I purchased a 2013 Cedar Creek 38RE, and have regretted it ever since. The water tanks have fallen out and are resting on the axles right now, the slides have cracked on the insides, the electrical system has melted exterior lights because they get so much power to them, I have been shocked and knocked to the ground by the wires going into the vacuum which has never worked since we purchased it, the automatic leveling system has never leveled on its own- always have to level manually, the table came loose and fell over during the FIRST trip in this thing busting the wood finish on the island, interior trim has fallen off for no reason while we were sitting eating dinner, the electrical system has ruined several batteries, the paint is fading at the top of one of the end caps, the inverter is intermittent, the furnace blower and ignition is intermittent so we did not have heat during a 35 degree night, glass inserts in cabinets doors have fallen out for no reason, the cabinet doors are misaligned so that you have to carefully close them or they sag and then come open, the oven door does not seal when shut/gap of about 1/2 inch, paint on various panels is changing colors other than that of the body, and so on. There isn't a dealer in the fourth largest city in the country willing to work on it, and the warranty people are basically worthless at resolving customer complaints. I called them the first week of January, I still have not received a call back regarding the issues with this unit. They simply do not care, and yes, I'm talking about Jeff at Forest River. Buy a Forest River product again? NEVER! I would rather give myself a vasectomy than buy one of these things again. They advertise and market these as one of the premium fifth wheels available, yet the craftsmanship and workmanship are literally nonexistent. So if you have a choice, buy ANYTHING other than a Forest River product. MY wife and I are speaking with an attorney and filing a complaint with the state's AG office and the BBB. Forest River? Don't walk, but RUN from one of the POS's. Re: Forest River Cedar Creek fifth wheel
MelissaWe currently own a WildWood T26TBSS and we have absoultly enjoyed it. We now have 2 teenagers that are always involved with school activities and don't have time to camp anymore. We are selling ours. If interested call Richard at 864-710-2103. Asking $10,500. If you would like to see pictures email me at lisaknox1@charter.net. We have not had any problems with this camper and hate to sell it, but we would rather sell it that let it just sit.Re: Forest River Wildwood travel trailer
MLI AM CONSIDERING PURCHASING A FOREST RIVER WILDWOOD TRAVEL TRAILER 27 FOOT WITH SLIDE, HAS ANYONE BOUGHT AND USED THIS BRAND AND WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTSRe: Forest River Wildwood travel trailer
BobFollow-up to last comment my rig spent three more months in the shop and I picked it up on January 1,2014 and drove to Florida and when I tried to use/adjust the levelers. They as well as the slides stopped operating while out and down, leaving us stranded. We also continue to have numerous plumbing problems and the floors are loose and squeak. I am trading this piece of junk off and will never buy another Forest River RV. Getting service and even a response from them is impossible!!Re: Forest River Georgetown class A motorhome
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.

Nightmare Not Luxury Owners 2 seniors no children. Bought a New 2012 Forrest River 39FL Berkshire in May 2012. Been in shop total of 12+ of the 18 months of ownership. This is not counting onsite service. It has been such a major issue,that Forest River gave us an additional 3 month extended warranty. Needless to say the Nightmare didn't stop there. Our Extended Warranty is over but the RV is and has been in the shop for the past 2 weeks. This time at our expense! Airbags, A/C, Toilet, Floor tile 3x all Replaced, Slide 3x, Step 2x,Refrigerator decor,trim,draws,window,closet Rod, shades,awning,water leak,Kitchen cabinets,Microwave. Not once have we taken it out did we not have to cut our trip short or bring it in to the shop for repairs.Forrest River informed us ( what do you expect from a House on Wheels). Forrest River will have one last attempt to satisfy this customer before it is turned over for Legal Remediation. Re: Forest River Berkshire luxury motorcoach
Art KortWe bought a 26BH Gray Wolf in July of 2014, had it out 4 times and it was great. Everything worked as it should. Our dealer did not do a good walk through. But it was easy enough to figure out. Very happy.Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer
BobPurchased a 2013 Georgetown XL 378 in September of 2012. On our first trip in November of 2012 the right side slide started coming out as we were driving. I had to stop every 50 miles or less and bring it in. I took it to Little Valley RV in Phoenix and they had it four months and said they could't find anything wrong with it. They did manage to damage the entire left side of the coach and it had to be repainted. They got over-spray on the front of the coach during the repaint I would warn anyone not too take your rig there. The slide continued to malfuction so I I took it to Camping world in Longmont CO. They have had it for 3 months and are still waiting on parts. I can't get any assistance from Forest River. I also fould the leather on the passenger seat to be defective, a leak behind the shower and the passenger window is defective and they can't get the correct window from Forest River. I have owned the rig for a year and it has been in the shop for seven months. I will never buy another RV from them and recommend others not too.Re: Forest River Georgetown class A motorhome

Bug_DahUnhappy owners of Cherokee Wolf Pup 16FB purchased in May 2013...discovered the original 13" rims/tires were undersized and only allowed 55 lbs of cargo capacity..after two weeks Forrest River said they needed to replace with 15" rims/wheels to give adequate capacity..tires now overly worn on outside edges after less then 1500 miles ??? second camping trip the gray water overflowed into bathtub...discovered the gray water tank will only take 9.5 gallons before overflowing..they have vent pipe stuck too far into tank creating an air pocket in the tank..same for Black water..practically all the pipes water/gas/drain are NOT sealed to the outside allowing road water into the insulation..fresh water tank said 21 gallon capacity , but is only 15 gallons..they say you have to count the 6 gallon water heater capacity??? Not in Fresh water tank original specs !!! Fresh water tank loosely connected to floor..can move 3 inches either way!! Hot water heater never shuts off..have to turn pilot off/on. scraps of wood sawdust under storage space under bed. Toilet defective and leaked into back inner chamber!!! stabilizer jacks each had a broken bolt on when purchased...gas lines were danglining underneath unit by 6"..dangerous..Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer

LarryWe have a 2010 LaCrosse travel trailer. have had wheel bearing problems in the past. This past week when coming home from our vacation the wheel bearing seized uo and the wheel came off as we traveled at 65 mph. luckily the wheel was on the passenger side so didn't go into traffic. When we took it to get fixed the guy told us the axles were not the correct size for the weight of the trailer. just wondering if anyone else has had this problem Re: Forest River Prime Time LaCrosse travel trailer
MindyTina, what model Wolf Pup do you own? We bought a 2014 model and have the problems you listed and more! Re: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer
2013 Greywolf 26DBHThe unfortunate part of internet reviews is that unhappy people go out of their way to speak out about why they are unhappy, yet happy people never think to tell anyone. I'm one of those happy people that like to tell others I'm happy so the overinflated negative perceptions don't drown out the good. We are happy with our purchase and would recommend it to anyone. A bad experience typically stems from a bad dealer, not manufacturer. Bad manufacturers go broke. Our good dealer was Hanson RV in Warman, SKRe: Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer

Jim GoffWe downsized from a Winnebago Chiefton to a 2013 Georgetown 337. WE just returned from a 5000 mile trip to Arizona for a month and we love everything about it. We have 8000 miles on it and have not had a single problem, other than loose screws, etc. The interior designers did a nice job of maximising the space with a super clide, wide hallway, and a king size deep pocket bed. It feels much larger inside than a 34, but the short wheelbase and 22.5 wheels make it very maneuverable even in parking lots. We love it. Re: Forest River Georgetown class A motorhome
Mark KearseThis is a follow up on previous comment. Talked to April at Forest River and discussed problems. She has sent me to J and L Repair in Fontana, CA. This is where they send those that need to be in the factory but are on the West coast. Drove almost a thousand mile to get there and during trip developed a leak in the windshield, handle of refer broke off in my wifes hand when she opened it and upon arrival in LA area found all our hanging clothes on the floor as the hanging rod had pulled out of the ceiling. Delivered coach to J and L on Jan. 28th with list of problems. Waiting to hear next week of progress. Joe at J and L seems to be one that looks to fix the problem rather than bandaid so I am hopeful that all will be fix, covered by waranty, and I'll be able to go back to travel. Will keep you posted on results.Re: Forest River Georgetown class A motorhome
Mark KearseBought a 2012 Georgetown 360 in July of 2012. Planning an extended vacation. Picked up and on the way home, battery light came on. Turns out a pinch wire caused a short and cooked both coach and motor batteries. Ford took care of motor and Exide finally took care of 2 in the coach. Hit the road on Sept 1st and the fun began. Minor window leak in first week, lack of silicon which I fixed. November window leak back but worse and auto jacks not auto retracting. Found several screws loose and broken. Replace and more silicon, 120V water heater quits. Dec. into dealer, 250 miles, worked on leak and jacks. Back to campsite. One week later, leak back and jacks still don't auto retract. More up on a ladder with hose and more silicon in areas that didn't have caulk from the factory. January, back to dealer to replace one jack and damaged curtain from leaks. Jacks still not auto retract. Dealer is waiting again to hear from Lippert. I have lost confidence in this dealer and want to go to one in L.A. where I can leave the rig to be fixed and have a place to stay. They say that since I went to a dealer in Oregon that Forest River will not pay them for warranty issues and that I would have to go back to that dealer. I am calling Forest River today and will test out just how well they can handle this problem. Will follow up this with results, good or bad. As of right now I am only able to stay in unit with major slide retracted.Re: Forest River Georgetown class A motorhome
Dave TaylorWe bought a new 34' 2005 Georgetown LX. We were downsizing. After about 1 month we had a roof leak front right corner. Took to the dealer and they said they fixed it. (we live in Washington) It started again in a few months and I worked on it. After about a year it was back and I had the dealer work on it again. This didn't last so I had the dealer remove all of the caulking on the roof and reseal it. ($2400) It started again in 5 months so back to the dealer. It has started again. This P.O.S. only has 25000 miles on it and isn't worth anything when you try to replace it. I wouldn't recommend a Georgetown to anybody. Looks are only skin deep. Also they used a lot of drywall screws when building it.Re: Forest River Georgetown class A motorhome
