[QUOTE=jimcumminsw;3214440]Stay away from any THOR own product such as Keystone. There is no manufacturing support at all, you can not even contact them. Go to the Forest River site and look up the contact page, you will see address and the contact page for each subdivision of Forest River. For each product that they build, such as Forest River, Palomino, Dynamax, Coachman, and so forth.

You are wrong about Thor. They let each brand operate as a stand-alone company, so if you have a problem, simply contact the company, not Thor. We have outstanding service from Heartland, as do other Thor brands.

You might listen to the guy who warned to stay away from a particular company. They make a lot of product but I've even had sales people tell me on the side they wouldn't recommend them.

What did you purchase?

I spent my first 9 month of ownership of my 2012 landmark Rushmore in a service bay at Lazydays Rv. With that being said, I concluded that it really does not matter what brand you buy. They all have the same amount of warranty issues. Provost to pop up campers. The Rv industry has no real concern with building quality, it all about quantity. I can say my 07 cedar Creek had no big issue's Forest Rivers Cedar Creek division was excellent. And Heartland Landmark division fixed everything and never did I have to fight to get anything fixed.. So I say buy as nice of a rig that you can afford, get the extended warranty and understand you're never going to be able to recoup your money. So do it right the first time. They all have issues.

Thanks, that pretty much sums up my thoughts on this matter. There are a lot of different opinions out there. I just have to make the choice that works best for me and mine.

Regan - i put a deposit on a Weekend Warrior 4250w. It has not been built yet. Should be ready to pick up mid November. You can take a virtual tour on YouTube. Their website has a build your own feature so you can get the options you want and see what the cost will be.

Yesterday, I started a thread "my 5th wheel purchase (so far)".

If you would consider a little older, you can get a far better built unit ,aka DRV, new horizons or the like, for around your budget or less and then have a quality built unit that has already been taken care of by the previous owner.
