Teamwork makes the dream work!

Crossroads Trailer Sales began by selling horse trailers in 1988, and we have been in business now for over 30 years. We’ve expanded our facility to grown our business over the past few decades. In 2000, we started carrying new and used RVs. As a family owned and operated business, we’ve always been committed to growing to serve you. Above all, we are dedicated to our customers. Presently, we are proud to say that for the last 9 years in a row we’ve been the #1 selling fifth wheel trailer dealer in New Jersey!

Certainly, Crossroads Trailer Sales takes pride in this title. While the services and experience we provide are of the utmost importance to us, we could not do it alone. Specifically, we often rely on our amazing manufacturers. So, today we are going to highlight Forest River.

Unquestionably, Forest River is one of the manufacturers we are most proud to carry. So, we are going to introduce you to their brand, share some of their most popular models and tell you why we love them so much!

Founding of Forest River

First, let’s look at how Forest River began. Founded by Peter Liegl in 1996, Forest River is an RV manufacturer that truly helps people experience the joy of the outdoors. Liegl dedicated himself to build a better RV. He wanted to create a more reliable and more comfortable camper. He accomplished his goal, and today Forest River is one of the biggest RV manufacturers in North America.

Consequently, Forest River produces class A and C motorhomes, travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers, camping trailers and destination trailers. They make an RV for everyone – the family getting started in the world of RVing to the experienced full-timer. To their core, Forest River believes that everyone should be able to experience the vast beauty of Mother Nature.

To sum it up, their mission is to provide RV owners with quality, dependable products. Forest River wants to see their recreational vehicles help you to explore!

Forest River Manufacturing

Altogether, Forest River follows their mission by ensuring that they build quality, dependable recreational vehicles. They accomplish this through their manufacturing facilities, which are committed to quality control. Located throughout the Midwest and West Coast, they follow production procedures without cutting corners or rushing through the process. They ensure that each Forest River product is carefully constructed and undergoes a complete inspection after the production process.

In addition to their production tests, Forest River selects random units from each of their brands to test. These units are subjected to rigorous testing postproduction at their 20,000 square foot pre-delivery inspection (PDI) building. Technicians check for issues in electrical, plumbing, LP system, function, cosmetics, codes and standards, rain bay, and other miscellaneous tests. This process further ensures every unit built meets the high-quality standards that Forest River promises.
