I have been looking into upper end 5th wheels for a while. I'am very interested in the 36FL. I have e-mailed the factory web site many times over the last few months with questions, to this day I have never recieved an answer (makes me wonder, if I have a problem). I would like pros & cons on the Redwood 36FL from customerswho have bought one, also what would youhave done differently on buying or ordering.







Thanks Lillyputz

Hi,

I emailed several times also. Tom Montague emailed me back either the same or next business day. I would give them a call for certain..

We also have emailed Redwood many times with questions, and had immediate response from Tom Montague. In fact, the first time he phoned us, and we talked to him for over an hour while he answered all our questions. As Cyberdave said, try calling them, or try emailing Tom directly at tmontague@redwood-rv<wbr>.com

Robin and Marian,

Did you guys buy a Redwood? I thought I remember from RV.NET where you had one on order.

No, we don't own anything yet - we are still "wannabe"s! We have to sell the ol' stix and brix first. Hoping to buy in the spring or summer, as soon as the acreage sells. We will be full-timers once we do sell. We have been researching RVs, both motorhomes and fifth wheels, for the past 4 years, and Redwood tops our list. But I would sure like to see more owners posting their thoughts, troubles and praises on here! I have been reading dlovitt's posts on iRV2.com forum about his new 36FB, but that is the only owner's reviews I have seen.

I like many others, have looked into other upper end manufactuers, asked many questions to help make up our mind on our next 5th wheel.I joined this site, because I was interested in the Redwood 36FL. I to have checked other forums forowner info on Redwoods. the only info, from an "owner" is Dlovitt's post on irv2.com. even though most of his problems are miner, there is no excuse for a unit not to have beenP.D.Iby a qulified tech, before delivery. With (I'am told)over700 units manufactored todate, why are there no owners on this forum???? If all we have is Dlovitt's post, Redwood is in trouble. Pros and cons would be great for all that are interested in the Redwood.

The forum has only been open since the end of September so it will take awhile to get going. I had a PM from Diovitt about his issues and he feels the same way as I do. We've heard from one owner I would not draw any conclusions off of one owners experience. Balance the one owners experience against the evaluation and you still have little to go on.

I know an owner of a 2010 Carri-Lite that had to spend 3 weeks at the factory getting major repairs. I have owners of a 2011 DRV Mobile Suites next to me that have experienced some serious hydraulic and electrical issues.

IMHO, every manufacturer has some issues and the occasional disaster. It is how they handle the problems that concerns me as much as anything.

I have toured a lot of RV manufacturers, and from what seen when I toured Redwoods production, it isout in front by a wide margin. For example, compared to Heartlands Landmark, they use real plywood instead of OSB board for floors. Axle wet bolt kits are standard. Just a few of the things I noticed when I was walking thru the plant. Edited by: redwood5er
