If more than one person bought it, we would.

I have one, 2005, and will likely go with a true class B, smaller, from someone else when we buy again. It is a shame FR isn't looking at high end small units.

If this Lexington 210 had a rear bed we'd keep it forever.

We have had a 210 for six years and have over 60k miles on it now with the Vortec 6.0 engine. What a great unit! We have had minimal repairs, one wheel bearing, one water pump and one half time oven replacement. I agree that if we had a rear bed like in the Solera we would keep it or buy another.

We pretty much keep the dining side down and flip out the couch for the dw about half the time. She'll sleep on the couch many nites.

No mechanical issues, but I rebuilt many of the cabinets and replaced the converter. Oh yeah, dead 1/2 time oven that we replaced with an "off the shelf" microwave with a browning element.

Actually have been to the repair center for the oven twice. First time was the micro wave that did not function. Turned out to be a broken wire in the interface wiring. A year later the key pad stopped working so another trip to South Bend and this time they replaced the entire stove top unit and electronics with an upgraded unit for a discount of $198. So far so good. I am getting real good at removing it for service though!

After doing some online research on the oven model and trying to pull the unit apart to make repairs I decided to trash it and go with something less costly. You have to wonder about a company that make components that are near impossible to open by the user.

A simple $80 off the shelf replacement, a $8 ratchet strap to "tie it down" and I'm back in business.
