The auto industry it is not.
I just thought of a new part time job for when I retire. FR can loan me an RV every weekend or so and maybe a few weeks of the year. We take it out for a short trip and then provide feedback on the things that work/don't work and/or need to be redesigned or fixed. That should help with quality control for models coming off the assembly line.
PS. They can label them as "road tested" thereby assuring less pain for the new first time owner. #WinWin
