There is talk on another thread that the price will come down, but the quality inside will not be as good. I am even less impressed if they do that. I just wish someone would build something I could have and not work on all the time with things like drains that actually drain the entire system, higher quality fittings, piping, electrical systems, etc. Being an aircraft mechanic, I know these things can be accomplished. I'd rather have a better quality product and less bling.

That being said... I still want one... Woe is me... I'm gonna be in BIG trouble with DW...
Hi, I've owned all kinds of motor homes, buses, and others. This is my first tt. As a mechanic like you are......you wouldn't have a job if it weren't for maintenence or mechanical failure. Right? Lol! If you can't work on above listed, or have deep pockets don't buy anything. These units aren't perfect but what is. As Bob stated they have come way down from the original price and that's a good thing. I didn't pay the asking price but didn't get the best deal either. So far I'm happy with my purchase. I've had few few issues which were easy fixes and updated some interior furnishings so for the most part it's all good . Time will tell if its up to snuff. Factory has been helpful in answering questions and covering defective parts and that's a plus to me. The aviator is a pretty cool unit...but don't ever expect to get anything trouble free...ain't gonna happen. Btw, before this unit I owned a Blue Bird Wanderlodge for 8 years.

After reading responses, I'll be sticking with what I have. Sure, I'm a little peeved at having to fix some stuff, but I'd be thoroughly pissed off if I had paid more than twice as much for the trailer... And... I did use it for a touch more than 2 years, trouble free.

Enjoy your rigs, folks... The Aviators are beautiful, just not for me...

to be honest at the discounted prices there is not another TT that you can compare to them for construction and durability, they are built like a tank with a gross weight around 11,000, its not really a TT for a 1/2 ton truck.
