I also had a few peaces of trim that had to be glued back on.
My real problems were with products that came from other suppliers that all the other company's use as well. I have toured the plant and was happy with what I saw.

I've owned everything from a popup to a Class C, fix the small stuff yourself and enjoy the road, that's my advice.

We just did our first real trip... about 2500 miles or so in our new 2013. We have a pretty long list of items heading back to the dealer, lots of fun. We had the regulator on the propane go out, so no propane for the last week of the trip (not to mention losing half a tank of propane), rear air won't run via generator, front air "surges" (looking at a plugged in power meter it just dances all over when the front a/c is on), jacks tend to "leak" and we go off level after a day or so, dash air just isn't cold at all, maybe cool, but no where near cold.

That all being said, it was a great trip (FL to Ohio, then a bunch of places in between).

For those that keep mentioning Tiffen and Newmar specifically....my sister has a 2011 Baystar that we have used quite a bit -- I keep it maintained for my sister. Being able to use it is what convinced my wife we needed to sell our TT and move up to a motorhome. Honestly, we have found lots of smaller issues with it as well. Probably the worst is the counters and the delamination due to water under the sinks -- and this was a brand new motorhome. I will admit, it has MUCH better level jacks, smooth and they are much more stable when deployed.

So, ours goes into the shop on Thursday, hopefully they will address and fix all the issues above and several more smaller (like the original OP mentioned).

Our last two have both had some issues but the dealer has worked hard to resolve them. We camp a lot and have heard pretty much the same stories from owners of most models. I think it is best to keep a good relationship with the service department and shake out the bugs and get them fixed. I fix what I can and just make note of the rest so when I take it in they can fix a bunch at once. Currently dealing with severe shower leaks on our Sandpiper but they have it now and have assured me it will be right when I pick it up. I do intend to take a shower in it at the dealers before I pull it off just in case though. Good luck and enjoy.

That sounds funny !! Taking a shower at the dealers! BUT I wish we would have done it when we got back our georgetown xl , it would have saved us lots of money, due to lost days camping, they would not refund the lost days camping due to it being a holiday weekend, gas going down there, and all the food!! So I say, yes take a shower!

Ps. After many trips to the dealers for warranty repair, this last weekend was awesome!!! NO problems. We got to bring our MH home with us, and use the storage spot we've been paying for and not using the last 3 months.
