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.
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..
MindyTina, what model Wolf Pup do you own? We bought a 2014 model and have the problems you listed and more!
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, SK
TrinaI will never buy anything from Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf again. We have had nothing but problems since the day we bought it. We camp a lot but take great care to make sure our trailer is well cared for. In 2 years our slide has failed twice and caused significant water damage and mold, the awning arm broke on its first use and was never replaced under warranty, the refrigerator decides for itself if it wants to shut down (never had this issue with other brands), the black water holding tank is much smaller than they indicate, and the DVD player fuse gets blown at least once per trip and the sofa sagged so bad on our first trip and we were told that we must have had too much weight on it (my tiny mother had slept on it). Mechanically, we've had the bearings fail, the brakes fail, the axle bent, and while these were being repaired the mechanic noted that our "new" tires would soon need replacement!!!! As for camping convenience, I'd say there is none. There is so much wasted/inaccessible space that it is crazy, the cupboard doors open upwards instead of sideways but do not have self holding mechanisms so you are always one handed as you need the other to hold the cupboard door open, there are no cutlery drawers to speak of, and very little room for dishes or groceries. We've personally taken over 2 wardrobes for food and dishes and have begun using 2 of the bunks as wardrobes since they are too small for anyone over the age of 6 anyhow. The two wardrobes in the "master bedroom" boast rods for hanging clothes but if you hang a hanger in it, the door is no longer able to close as it seems someone forgot to measure the width of a hanger before designing it this way. While our dealer has been sympathetic and strives to have all of our issues dealt with, they are at the mercy of Forest River Warranty bosses and little is getting done. I'll go back to my Four Winds brand whose only issue in 5 years was being too small for our growing family.
TinaLast year I posted that tires were shot, axel bent, dealer replaced axel and new tires, I paid labor, not even a year later 1st trip out this year, tires worn on inside AGAIN, Love the trailer but, come on now, Obviously there is a problem, contacted the dealer, see what happens.
ShanerWe've had our 2008 28'BH for 3 full years and love it. Im claustrophobic and never have an issue with guests in our trailer. Other than minor warranty issues (small rip in awning, pilot light in oven), its been very good. We camp with lots of freinds and our floorplan is the most open and comfortable.
Tina2011 wolf pup 1035 miles on it tires shot on the inside, gonna see what they will do
Camper JohnHave a 2011 Forest River Cherokee used 5-times and all the tires wore out. They are Trail Express. BEWARE of these tires, they are ALL BAD and have not been recalled. Lots of small stuff going wrong on this Fifth Wheel. Would never buy one again.
Alec M.With my first look, I could only say, "I want it!" "BADLY" 2/20/2011
Chuck KWe have the toy hauler version and we love it. Forest River is the way to go.
Craig PWe had a cherokee for a couple of years and really liked it. Like the floorplans now. Didn't know there were other floorplans when we bought ours, we just bought what the dealer had. We liked it but these reviews make you aware of the possibilities. Thanks.
GloriaWe have a 2008 Cherokee Grey Wolf 22BH. Wonderful trailer and we think Forest River is a really fine company. Would recommend them. The choice of floorplans is impressive I didn't know there were so many. Maybe we would have bought differently. Like the look of the 33' model and it doesn't look a problem to tow.
John ParkesI've always been a fan of Forest River. I've had 2 of their RVs and been totally satisfied both times.
kwayneI'm a big fan of Forest River. I've had one trailer and I've now a 5th wheel. I've been satisfied with both of them. The 5er is good but we leave it in one place most of the time and the truck bed has the permanent wheel in it. But I also really like the Forest River destination trailer idea, going to check it out.
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.
SueWe have a 2004 Cherokee. The only problem that we have had is with the A/C Fan getting jammed. They fixed it under warranty once, and then they replaced it as they had had quite a few problems reported with them. Now it is working great. I wish they had an outlet under the dining table. Also, the TV cabinet sits at an awkward angle, which has been revamped in later models. I like the picture window and the snack bar&stools, lots of cabinets and interior durable. Our dealer Berryland RV's in Pontchatoula, LA has been great- no issues. Based upon your experiences, would you buy one of this manufacturer's RVs again?: Yes. Rating: 5/5.
