quality question

howdy: yes you will have problems at first with your coach, but we all have. If you take back to dealer with 6 things wrong make sure they fix all of them. Make a list. I have fixed the entry door so it closes better, screws around water heater, moved couch back 6 inches and so on. This is normal stuff, and I did it all because I like working on it.so now I haven't done anything for a long time. I have a 2012, 378.all in all these motorhomes are pretty good, you just got to fix things or have them do it,dont worry to much it will all work out. We have traveled a lot of miles so far and I trust mine, this forum is a good source of info. Hang in there. And don't worry about asking questions Pete

I can not promise all will be perfect but it should work out for you. Good luck and enjoy the travel, you can get to your destination quicker, but the travel is more fun.
Thanks, I appreciate the response.

I wish I could be one of those happy people. In the last two years, my Sabre has spent more time at the dealers and factory than at home/storage/camping. Presently waiting to go back to the factory now from mistake they did the last time it was there.

Can't tell you how many times my Georgetown has been back for repairs. Bottom line, though, the dealer fixed everything wrong with it (except the leaking hydraulic pump cap, leaks as designed), during the warranty period.

Having said that, I have had two Southwinds, two Pace Arrows, one Itasca, and they all had problems. Most of the stuff had to do with vendors stuff that went bad.

All were fixed eventually. It taught me that no matter what brand you have, things will go wrong. Expect it. If nothing goes wrong, you are blessed!

I have been out of warranty over a year, and things are all taken care of and enjoying our rig, "as designed".

Enjoy your rig and happy trails!

Forrest

You should have bought a Georgetown.

Just bought my second Georgetown, a 2014 329DS. I traded in my 2010 with 12,000 miles only because my wife saw the counter space on the new one and that was that. Anyway, this is my fourth motorhome. First two were Fleetwoods and I had more problems with them by far than my Georgetown. Everything from a generator transfer switch that left us without power our first time out to a miswired external outlet that gave you a shock every time you touched the step. I think the bottom line is that all new coaches seem to have issues. From my experience I had many fewer "issues" with my Georgetown than I ever had with the Fleetwoods. In addition, the Georgetown includes many more features for less $$ than most other brands.
