we have recently looked at and liked 2011 Brookstones. Cannot find Brookstone under Coachmen or ForestRiver in the NADA values listing. The dealer states the "Forest River" now owns Coachmen. We have only owned Jayco Eagles but cannot get a foot from shore with dealers in Florida for a new 5er. Brookstone looks good but I have no experiences with this line. Would appreciate any info you might have.
We purchase the Brookstone in my sig. July 2010 and have been fulltiming in it since then. We found the fit & finish to be well ahead of other campers we looked at. We purchased ours in Rockwood, TN at Boat-N-RV. we have had only minor problems non having to go back to the dealer for repair. We did replace the standard RV faucets in the bathroom and kitchen with good quality ones from Lowes.
