We are our own worst enemy, in the quality game, because we accept the frills and the fancy marketing and don't demand more.
The miracle to me is how good ALL the cars are nowadays compared to years ago. I wish that was happening to other products, like campers.
Not related to rv's, but when we were testing the ILMS hydraulics for the Multiple Launch Rocket System, the hydraulic pump & motors had a 20 yr life and when completed, still had to perform to the original spec. Cost was $126,000 for a pump, 2 motors and a reservoir. Fantastic pc of equipment.
