This is a long read but it shows the problems with other top flight manufacturers.

Makes some of our Crossroads problems seem lame.

Came across this recently myself. When you consider the price point on the unit it makes you wonder what the heck are these manufacturers thinking. Winnebago is a very recognizable name but is a major competitor of Thor. Production is primary and so QC suffers. Maybe the RV rebound will slow if people decide on alternatives to Rving based on quality issues.

QC problems are common place RV industry-wide. The manufacturers are mostly corporate now, and they are running like corporations do: maximize profits. Maybe the Japs will start building campers and force the quality issue, lol.

I still say the most important thing you can do when buying a new camper is to be sure you buy from a dealer with a reputation for customer service after the sale. So what if you save 500 bucks on the sale if it costs you 5000 bucks down the road because they won't help you hold the manufacturer's feet to the fire?

I agree with Mike, I think the dealership means more then saving a little money at first.
