We own a '97 U 320 40' and it is our 2nd F/T. If we didn't like the first one we would have gone with something else. Do we have things break and wear out? Yes as with anything that's 10 to 12 years old this is expected. As far as the factory inspection they did a very good inspection on our first one and corrected things that needed to be addressed.
Here is a link to a fourm that is centered on the F/T brand where all your questions can be addressed Foretravel Owner's Forum -- ForeForums
PM me if you want specifics.
Post a message at the above mentioned forum, you maybe able to get a local F/T owner to meet you at the factory to go over the coach with you.
