I bought a 25 ft sport surveyor last month and have used it serve real times. I have not had a problem with it like others have had. The rv shows well at the dealership but after using it and really looking it over the quality is very poor. Screws pop out on the window shades, the door do not roll right because screws not all the way in. The cut on the wood edge are all splintered and shredded. ... Read more

Forest River - Salem 2015 electrical and slide out B.S.
1 of 2

Our 2015 Salem cruise lite 28 ft-From day one - power hitch blows fuse constantly (had to do by hand every time )the power rear stabilizers stopped raising and lowering ( I had to do by hand again ) we've only had it out twice. The big thing is we have our trailer parked beside the house and our slide out had a mind of its own and decided to slide back in ON ONE SIDE ONLY (see pictures below)! So... Read more

  • 2014 Cruise Light Trailer

Just recently bought a 2014 Cruise Light 18 1/2 foot travel trailer. I was not happy with the quality I seen. At close inspection I seen that some of the windows were only sealed across the top and others sealed only across the top of the window and down the sides. Nothing sealed all the way around the windows. Also the two access panels for storage and access to the back of the refrigerator were... Read more

We purchased a 2014 Surveyor 24ft and it was a great purchase. Have been camping 4 times this summer and never, ever had a problem. This is our second trailer from Forest River. Our 1998 5th wheel trailer we picked up in Indiana, at the factory. Never, never had a single problem with it even thought we traveled over 5,000 miles with it. We would buy another Forest River in a heartbeat. We... Read more

We purchased a 2013 Cardinal in April of 2013. From day one, we started having problems with it. There is not enough room to explain each of the 35+ issues we had with it. Out of 15 months, it was in for repair 8 of those months. We had it back to the dealer, to another dealer, back to Elkhart and got a few small things fixed, but major issues were still apparent. We called FR in March of... Read more
