MANY - a very poorly made unit

Forest River Rpod Problems I have been holding off submitting this to the forum until I heard back from the dealer (PoulsboRV) and Forest River. On October 22, 2017 we purchased a brand new 2017 Rpod 180RB for our trip to Palm Springs.  I immediately found some things...

Camper in for warranty repairs for approximately a year. Lost s as whole year of camping and warranty. Asked them to extend warranty for another year but ignore our request

No response about extending warranty after having camper in for repairs took nearly one year. We continually get a no response from them

Parts for repair

Not able to contact anyone and very poor customer relations and respect for the consumers. Had to fix everything myself and the product is very poor in quality. I did buy a riverstone legacy and it was very expensive

User's recommendation: Read the reviews. No one answers the phone and service facilities are not knowledgeable an the product.

Unhappy customer

Bought our new Mac 228 D last year. Its a 2022. Too many issues with it. It should be turn key. Sloppy workmanship. The worst part is I paid more than $22.000 cash for it. Did not get a good walk thru from the dealer. I learned more from YouTube video about setting it up.

User's recommendation: Get a good walk thru with somebody that actually knows something.

Poor quality and warranty

Bought a 2022 XLR Boost and have nothing but problems. Only got to use it 3 times in 4 months. Roof and Siding pulling away from trailer. Electrical outlets not working and looks like frame has snapped under belly.

Very pleased with response

After buying an IBEX we realized that the inverter didnt work. The dealership, rightfully so, was noncommittal about when the new one would come in. I contacted FR IBEX via Facebook messenger and the response from them was immediate! FR expedited the shipping of the new inverter and the work was done within 10 days. Kudos to FR and our dealer Chesapeake RV solutions in Chesapeake VA!

User's recommendation: The dealerships are stuck between a rock and a hard spot in the current economy.

Service sucks and they lie to you about warranty you pay extra for. The guys that come fix stuff say the people that build these units are on crack and that’s way we have problems

Read the reason. RVs Unlimited in Robertsdale, Al. Lie to you when you pay for an added warranty that they dont honor. Yalls units dont stay together and we have stuff that was on walk through that still not fixed . I looked this model up before I bought and had good reviews. Must have been built on a Friday, because the one we purchased has many problems. I dont expect to get a response just like your dealership. You WILL never be referred to anyone by me.

User's recommendation: Stay away from RVs Unlimited.

Horrible quality

We bought a new 2022 XLR Boost and it's been a nightmare. Leaking water, siding came off while going down the road, the awning is loose, previous water damage, leaking sky light, microwave 0 button doesn't work, broken trim, holes in the heat system duct. Total junk, the dealership has had it more then we have, and we have used it once. I emailed the company and have received zero response. Big surprise. We are talking to an RV Lawyer.

User's recommendation: Don't buy a Forest River.

Same trailer 2022 XLR Boost way more problems. Sum of $21k to repair. Lawyer contacted

#2209614

Please let me know how that works out for you in comments because Our brand new Wildwood doesn't have working AC due to improper installation of the thermostat and the bolt into the water heater was not installed just placed in the heater. First trip with brand new RV was a total cluster.

Glad we decided to stay close to home for our first trip. Now waiting on warranty approval so we can try and go on another trip and pray its fixed.

Didnt matter what I did , I had to remove my hot water heater and fix burnt wires in the power cable junction box. Dealerships have the right to refuse working on a new camper if not bought from them! Such bs! It should be Forrest river dealership should have to warranty it,no excuse. Like a truck,warranty is warranty !

User's recommendation: Don’t buy a new camper.
