I don't know Dave Boggs. Never met him or talked with him. But making a move within the industry, from CR to KZ, doesn't make much sense to me.
Back in 2002 I was looking pretty heavy at their line because I initially thought they had what I wanted. What I found out was quite a shocker. They were in the habit of buying up leftover, out dated, unused material from different RV mfgs. and using what ever they could gather in the mfg. of their RVs. Can you imagine the nightmare a person could run into if you ever needed to replace something? Nobody would know what you had or where it came from. You would never be able to find a match if you needed, say, paneling or wallboard.
The one's my wife and I looked at were junk as far we were concerned.
So I hope for his sake things have changed for the better at KZ. If the RV industry falls on hard times again, he might find himself out picking s##t with chickens.
