2011 Coachmen Brookstone 354TS. Well, for a litany of reasons we have only been out 5 times this year (21 days, 1250 miles). Not sure if we get any more in.

But no issues requiring repair this year (yeah!). After 2013, things have settled down. In maintenance mode. Oh and one more mod this year.

But next year, I got to get around and fix the black tank dump handle/valve/cable. For some reason it is extremely hard to move, in and out. The more you use it, the better it gets, but it is still way too hard. It has just gotten worse since we bought the trailer. One of these times it is just not going to open. It's all hidden up behind the underbelly material.

Only thing I repaired was the FW hose, it got kinked and then started to leak, a couple of hose fittings later all is well.

I spent a lot of time on the roof this year. But this is a 2008 trailer. Now that I am "caught up" there should be no problems for awhile.

Outside is starting to show some age. Inside looks like it did the day we picked it up. We opted for the minimal carpet. What carpet there is still looks OK.

Weve been doing this since around 1970, and we have never had a "no repair year" ! Didnt think there was such a thing if you used it!

Our Wildcat spent more time at the dealer then with us. Four visits to the dealer each visit at least four weeks. What a joy

"No repairs ever." I refuse to believe such a product exists.
