Introducing myself to my fellow RVrs

Hello my name is Rusty.
I look forward to sharing my experiences and offering my help from being a full-timer over the past 5 years. Recently, I bought the brand-new 2023 Riverstone Legacy and thus far, it has met my expectations. Fortunately, the manufacturer's warranty comes handy as many items were either damaged or incomplete upon delivery. It appears that Keystone produces them hastily and leaves their dealers to deal with all their inadequacies. Nevertheless, despite all the work that still needs to be done on it, I remain happy with my purchase… for now.
Are there any other Riverstone-rs out there?

Welcome to the forum

Isn’t your trailer a Forest River product?

Anyway, glad to have you here, we welcome all brands and all people. Lots of good information and loads of great people here.

Welcome to the Keystone forum anyway. All of these expensive toys share a lot of things in common.

Welcome to the forums! Glad you found us. Now that you are here, please jump right on in and share your experiences. We all have one thing in common ... campers! no matter who manufacturers them.

Not to push you out of here .... no, no, no ... please stick around, but I think you might benefit from the Forest River Forum, also sponsored by RV Life Pro, same orginization that sponsores this one. Click here. Just an FYI, you can log in with your same user ID as here, you'll just need to create a new profile for that fourm site. There are many more forums sponsored by RV Life Pro. I enjoy reading and participating in many of them, all at the same time.

Go to the RV Life Pro logo (upper right corner of your page), and click. Scroll down until you find RV Life Communities and click on the "Learn More" link. A pop-up will display giving the list of all the different forums that RV Life Pro sponsors. You may want to look at the Fifth Wheel forum (not real active, but still has good information there), RV Forum (which are pretty RV generic, but extremely active), and maybe one or two of the others that are RV related, but quite different .... the the Skoolie Forum (School Bus conversions to RV's.... really an interesting forum for do-it-yourselfers).

Anyway, glad you found this one and hope we all can help each other in the future. Thanks for joining!

There isn't much difference in the builds, appliances and materials between Keystone and Forest River. I have owned both as well as a number of other brands. I would guess quality started to slide during the china flu season as many folks wanted to get into camping as an alternative to being around a lot of folks in other hobbies. All the manufacturers cranked them out as fast as possible and likely corners cut. There may be some brands out there with spotless build quality but they too use the same appliances, etc In any case, hang around and jump in. The water is fine.

You make me feel like selling my Forest River and buying a Keystone. You're all so nice.

Welcome and it doesn’t matter what brand you have. Most of them have the same parts and problems. So enjoy and if you have a question just ask away. There is lots of knowledge here.

Howdy Rusty, and welcome!

As others have said, no matter what brand your RV is, you are among friends!

Enjoy your travels and stay safe!
