We bought our 378FB in September 2016. Before it could ever be delivered it was kept two extra weeks for a rear panel delamination issue. We pleaded for a new unit since that's what we bought but were assured it would be perfect when we got it. HUGE mistake. The day...

Sounds like the treatment I got from Honda Corporate on a 2014 Honda Pioneer 700 side by side. Just goes to show how much large corporations really care about their customers.

Forest River - Refused Warranty Repair for my Roof
In January of 2016 we sold our house and purchased a 5th wheel RV from Buddy Gregg. The sales experience was a good one with lots of promises such as the best service in the area and free lifetime membership to their small RV park in front of the store. We were very...

This is really a very sad situation of a company that would make a roof out of that material. Sheet aluminum should of been used this is by far a better roof material.

I purchased a 2015 FR 3 Class A Motorhome 5 weeks ago and it has been in the shop almost the entire time since I drove it home. The front end was shaking and it was hard to keep it in the road. I was told it was normal. The dealer was no help and when I called Forest...
