Brookstone by Coachmen

I have been looking at these and they seem pretty nice with a lot of standard features that are options on many other brands. Can someone tell me about them and the company?

Fredtp, The Coachman line is now manufactured by Forrest River. The Brookstone has replaced the Wyoming by the original Coachman Industries. If you check their website you should pick up a lot of information, just make sure it is covered under the NEW Coachman Warranty, the old Coachman Warranty is no good. Good Luck on you RV selection.

I thought I read that Forrest River took over old-Coachmen warranty obligations as part of the asset purchase, tho w/old-Coachmen paying the tab. I.e. FR does the service and gets reimbursed from a reserve established by terms of the sale. No?

i had two coachman products a 1996 royal fiver and a 2002 towable
the fiver was great, it was overloaded but provided us 5 great years of service before a tornado took it
the towable was great, I used it a few camping trips and few months living in it
then,
traded it for a forest river fiver 4yrs, and then the damon

no big complaints
all were great rigs

EngineerMike, We have a Coachman T/T that has a few Warrenty problems, it took almost six months to get any information on repairs. We were told the set aside for Warrenty repairs has been depleted. All we were able to obtain was information where we may be able to obtain the items needed for repair, and that was from a team at FR who were handling claims and inquires. FYI
