2016 Forest River 5th wheel toy hauler
« on: March 02, 2018, 08:05:16 PM »
Possibly buying a used 2016 Forest River Vengeance 5th wheel toy hauler. Would appreciate feedback from owners as to quality of this rv, unexpected repairs, how Forest River responds when repairs needed, etc. Thank you for your replies.

unless your buying a one off custom toy hauler all brands are relatively equal i have a keystone product and is much about the same as your coach different floor plan but they are all made with LCI components

nothing wrong with Forest River but seek out a Forest River forum - usually bad reviews and people complaining but take it with a grain of salt
2015 Voltage 3305 Toy Hauler - loaded
2014 F150 Ecoboost Reg cab (company truck) daily driver
2017 Black on Black F350 Diesel Dually loaded  5167lbs cargo/weight capacity

They don't. Even when brand new & under warranty, you get repairs through a dealer, not Forest River itself. They are strictly a factory, selling wholesale. Since you are looking at a 2016, it is almost surely used and you would be a second owner.  No warranty, unless the seller makes some sort of promise for future repairs, but most are sold "as is".   Forest River sells parts only through their dealer network, never direct to owners, and generally doesn't have much in the way of parts anyway.   RVs are built almost exclusively using components supplied by 3rd party suppliers, everything from trailer frame & axles to water heaters and fridges. Parts for those,  or replacements for them, are often readily available from RV stores online or locally. About the only thing that FR supplies is the roof, sidewalls, and cabinetry. And unlike cars, there is no assurance that parts will be available for any period of time.
