I really do believe it varies unit to unit. The SB I have was day and night over my previous 5er in build quality. After 2 months and several trips I have had zero issues. I looked at a CC side by side before I purchased and I looked at a lot of brands. It came down to a Grand Design and a Siverback mainly do to price point and quality I thought on the individual unit.

If I was full timing and/or not concerned with a budget the Cedar Creek probably would have moved to the front of the line.

one person says they will only own brand X, and the next person will say they will never own brand X again. Typical for the RV industry due to different experiences.

Actually, it is amazing the number of units from any brand that dealers will bring to an RV show w/o even doing a normal delivery prep. Saw-dust, loose trim, sticking doors. However they roll in from the factory is how they hit the RV show floor.
