Went to the local rv show over the weekend and had the chance to check out some Forest River products. They are some very good looking unit but, with closer inspection they do seem to cut coners. Don't know about the factory backing but, the dealer said he had never had a problem with warrenty work. The ones I looked at were entry level units and if it was all I could afford I might go for one. Well, I can't afford none of them but can't take it, the $$$, with you Any camper is better than none. Sure did see some nice DPs but, the $$$ for them sure makes the HR look good.
