Cardinal lifestyle

I have found that the cardinal lifestyle is not traveling and seeing this beautiful country, it is sitting home watching the travel channel while your custom ordered 2013 cardinal sits at the dealer being repaired and waiting for parts.
Since we picked up our custom ordered bird at the end of april it has nested mostly at the dealer and when it took flight it had to land many times to have to have repairs, most rv repairmen in the western part of this beautiful country know this big red bird.
By the way the dealer just called to let me know that the bird is ready to take flight after resting with them for two months.

We feel your pain! Years ago, we purchased a new Airstream trailer and it was at the dealer more than on the road. Finally took it to Airstream manufacturer and low and behold, everything was fixed! Enjoyed it for two more years before getting our Lexington.
Yea...we feel your pain!

I feel your pain as well. My Cardinal spent most of it's first eight months at the dealer and the only road miles logged are from home to dealer. It still has yet to make a trip that is of a different nature and it is fast approaching it's first birthday. Sorry that you are having problems. A lot of people tell me that it is normal to have problems with any manufacturer, but FR seems to be the worst that I have heard about lately. Best wishes.
