Review 2017 Forest River EVO T2360 Travel Trailer
This is a Review of our 2017 Forest River EVO T2360 Travel Trailer, Which we have traded off for a 2016 Keystone Cougar 277RLSWE 5th wheel. Let me start off by saying That we have owned 3 Forest River Travel Trailers. We bought this travel trailer brand new and have now lived in it for 6 weeks. This trailer would be fine for short term stays such as a week end of camping or stays of 1 or 2 weeks. For stays longer than a couple of weeks it is not suitable for 2 people. 1 person would be fine. If the designers of the travel trailer had to live in one for awhile they would design things a little different. What follows is the Pros and Cons and defects and short comings that We found in the 6 weeks that the wife and I have lived in the unit while wintering in Yuma Arizona.
Compact floor plan.
½ ton towable (but you would be right at the limits with a half ton and loaded).
We loved the floor plan and the Bathroom,
All L.E.D. Lighting.
Remote control for power stabilizers and the awning and lights.
1. Stupid Dinette Design. The legs for the table are to close to the seats so that you have to be a contortionist to get into the booth or be a small child or person.
2. The space above the fridge has no door or nothing to keep the contents from falling out while traveling.
3. All of the shades are mounted crooked and don’t work properly. Need to be reinstalled. Very poorly done.
4. The metal blinds in the bedroom are crap, and bend every time you bump into them. Very close quarters for that type of blind. They will have to be replaced.
5. As usual the mattress was a 4 inch thick rag. We replaced it with a 10 inch Dynasty Foam mattress, only to find out that to get into bed we need to use a step stool and we are both big tall people.
6. When turning on the cold water tap at the kitchen sink we get hot water for ten or so seconds befor it will run cold. This in 30 deg weather. I suspect either the cold and hot water lines are to close together or else the bypass valve for the water heater is leaking into a cold water line.
7. saw dust in vents and falling out of cabinets and nooks and crannys.
8. The finish trim was very sloppy with nail holes and staples installed crooked or not covered up.
9. Plastic Sink. You dont want to put a knife or any sharp object in it or you will mark or scratch it.
10. DVD player would not work. Dealer did replace it under warranty.
11. Propane Regulator and switch over valve is different and no way to tell when one tank is empty.
12. Cheap! Cheap! Cheap! Is the only way to describe the unit as a whole.
For a unit that retails for almost $26,000 you would expect better quality. It is a nice looking unit and has a lot of appeal, but I would be afraid to travel cross country with it for fear it might fall apart. These are just some of the resons I traded it off for a 5th wheel. Once we pick up the 5th wheel next week, I will Post my impression of it and why we switched.
