Default Question for the Experts Regarding Quality

In our search for a good FF 189FBS -- are there any that we should not consider?

Specifically -- have read some online reviews that compare the '06/'12 coaches to the newer units when Cruiser took over -- sometime around '11 or '12 -- up to current dates.

Some of the chatter seems to indicate that the Fun Finders before Cruiser took over -- were of a better quality.

Is this true, or not?

I may have this all wrong -- but just reading reviews and opinions.

Hopefully, you experts can shed some light.

Best, Fred

What I know about the 189fbs is that 2008 and before had flat roofs that tend to pool water around the ac units. In 2009 they went to a crowned roof that eliminated that problem. I have a 2009 unit and am happy with it. I don’t know about the quality of later models, but I believe the exterior looks changed in 2012.

Also I believe in 2009 they went with an aluminium frame and trusses to conserve weight and perhaps increase strength. On my 2010 FBR they also included most of the bottom with a nylon wrap.
