We have a 2004 and like it. They have done upgrades to this one that look very nice. I can't tell all the difference but this one looks like c a single slide while Ours is a double. Even at 12 years, ours is very functional and trouble free except for normal maintenance. We have had it 3 years now.

We have the Workhorse chassis, which we really like.

We have a 2001 346S Georgetown and have had had no major issues. We did do some upgrades to make it ours. Enjoy!

The best advice I can give is make sure you see ALL the maint. records. The coach is now 16yrs. old, and without those records I would walk away. What you don't need is a money pit.

I would get the power train checked by a mechanic.

The rest of it is just small stuff that is easy to fix.

A year and a half ago, I picked up a low mileage 99 ( 16,000 ) with a pile of maintance records. Looking thru, I couldn't find any records of brake work, yet it had 1 new caliper. So much for records.

I changed all 4 calipers, the front rotors and flushed the brake fluid. The rear caliper boots had disinegrated with age.

If not already done, belts, hoses and filters are due.

My tires fell apart at 7 years and 8000 miles.

My toilet, water valve, rusted away, the shower control leaked, the water pump failed and both boost and charge solenoids failed.

I added an Inverter and more battery and replaced the converter with a 3 stage smart charger.

I now have 34,000 miles on it and am happy with it.

Even with all of that, it didn't add up to 3 or 4 monthly payments on a new one.

We bought a gently-used '02 GT-325 in 2010 with 12,000 miles on it. Private sale by the original owners. We ran it for 4 seasons and put an additional 6000 miles on it before selling it.

We had some water intrusion in the dining area slide, caused by a rotted out slide topper and I took the overhead cabinets out and built replacements. I was less than impressed by the build quality "under the skin". The impression I got was that the folks on the factory floor made things up as they went along.

Based on that unit, I wouldn't consider another Forest River product.
