Sorry no pictures as I wasn't going to accept this unit and as they had already set me up a new one prior I didn't see the need to take photos. One bubble was in the couch dining slide it was a bout 3" in diameter and the other was on the same side directly under the front bedroom window about 2" in diameter. The sales rep was very forthcoming about the blisters and said they have contacted PT about it. What worries me is that I've been told at 2 different RV shows that this wall system is not supposed to blister/delaminate. Are the walls not all that they are supposed to be, or is the quality control at the factory lax? This is a 2014 model and should not have either of these problems.

I will be checking the new unit out very carefully when I pick it up Saturday, they have all ready offered me the extended warranty at no cost. I really hope this is an isolated incident as this camper, after 2 years of looking ticks off more boxes for us then any other has.

I think the QC in the rv industry is like no other. Its got to be difficult judging by my experience. 2013 tracer and 2014 lacrosse. Certainly there not that successful at doing qc compared to most industries QC as we know it. Like to see what they reject. But then qc cant fix design flaws.But my Chevy trucks been rock solid!

Uh, oh, not a chevy fan. Not to drag my thread off topic, but I have F-250 diesel that I use as my daily driver back and forth from Detroit, it currently has 392xxx miles and counting. A Blackhawks fan as well I see, figures, well they are bound to have a couple. j/k hopefully I'll have better luck with mine. My wife says she's had enough with the looking time to buy already.

Dont you think we pay enough? Note ..I think prime time makes one of the better units out there... But I think QC in RV is kinda lacking compared to other industries.

CUPS on the left
Your not a wings fan after 3 losses in a row in the play-offs. LOL
Gonna miss the Hawks and wings playing each other as division foes.
Prime Time makes a good unit! Best of luck even to a wings fan.
