We went to our local RV show last weekend and there was a 2020 Riverstone 37MRE on display. It had the black/gray full body paint and looked really nice on the outside. I've looked at these units before and hadn't been overly impressed so I was expecting to be less than impressed on the inside. Was I ever wrong; I was very impressed at the fit and finish inside of the unit. I spent quite a bit of time looking around in it and couldn't see anything cheap or out of place. The layout was very nice, and the colors very nice and warm feeling. It looks like it has a standard type frame, but it did have disk brakes and Goodyear G614 tires. Looking at the brochure, I was quite surprised at how many features are standard on them.

It looks like they are picking up their game and I would definitely put one on my shortlist in the future if they stay like this!

I don't understand all of the dark paint on the RVs. The vs are already hard enough to cool in the hot sun and dark colors absorb more heat than lighter colors.

Has Forest River stepped up the construction with a heavier frame, better axles and better construction cabinets or do they use the same as on the other lower end products.

I recently looked at the Rivserstone as well and it is nice with a lot of standard options. I have also wondered about the dark color paint jobs on units and keep them cool inside.

We have a 2017 River Stone Legacy 39mb with a dark color, we have not had any issues keeping it cool and we opted for only 2 a/c units, 3 is optional. They have a 12" I beam frame plus the upper deck is steel not aluminum like a lot of other brands. We have had very few issues with it and all were handled well thru the factory. If interested in them make sure you research them well as unless you get one with the Legacy package you will not get the full body paint, disc brakes, Good Year tires and the water manifold systems.

Yeah, but the check would be a little too big; it was on sale for $159k Cdn.....[emoticon]
