Sorry we call it aspenite...or particle board (sp?) I'm Canadian... tomatoe/tomoto.. and it is 1/4" the repairman and my hubby have both said it's 1/4" hard getting a good picture lying on the floor. The picture you showed me, we call press board.. like MDF?

If you could great!! My inlaws have 1/2" and our friends just bought a new Retreat and it's 1/2" as well.

We have an MDF here too. Much finer than the particle board and more dense.

Know of anyone else having these problems? Like I said I love the trailer, it's absolutely beautiful, fantastic layout, but this one has been a nightmare for us. Wondering if I just got a Friday afternoon on the factory line special and hoping that our dealership comes through and helps us out.

First, is there a Salem rep on the forum? Time to get a contact going.

I think that the issue is this is a new unit and the floor is sagging.
Dealer should and will repair it, but remember to try to work with them. Asking for refunds right out of the box can get them a little testy and less likely to help in a courteous manner. The dealer won't want to pay for a repair, so they will look to two sources - the manufacturer or you. Make sure to refer to the manufacturer as a separate entity, not "you guys".

I'd bet the new guy in the plant made an error (likely, the industry has been growing lately) so best plan is to just get the dealer to do the fix. If they won't do it to your satisfaction then get a lawyer (barrister?).

Til' it is all sorted out, no one jumping on the couch!

Do I want another product with substandard flooring? The key word in here is "new" and I unfortunately have a product that has had a number of issues... The list I sent was up to 16! How am I supposed to trust it will be repaired properly, and should I really have to keep a product that has this many issues in the first month I've had it? Sorry, Im just extremely frustrated and once bitten twice shy!

NO PRIDE HERE IN QUALITY
Looks like crap to be honest! shame on them for cutting corners like that.
Why I like to
That said give the dealer and fr a chance to make it right.
You need them on your side , after all the dealer didnt make it that way but they can help you fix it.
Cheap crap tics me off..SHAMEFULL

Best of luck!!

Factory repair

If there are that many issues, it would be better to have it returned to the factory for repair.
