What's unique about them is the shoddy workmanship and quality control. This is a Dirty Shame.

you got that right a down right criminal shame that such horrible work can be sold to the public my camper had had TONS of problems and got me kicked out of the reissue official page.. nothing but lies and bad workmanship! i dont have a one piece roof my camper was super unsafe to pull it was sitting so low on the tires and its still very low with the shasta shackle kit fix one side is 2.5" clearance and the other side is just below 2"... wrong stickers on campers passenger tires instead of camper tires and yes they do make a white wall trailer tire so i dont under stand the car tire use....

poor engineering and workmanship!

My wife wanted one of these 16' retros so we bought one. the very first thing I noticed was the pretty door hiding the inverter didn't have a vent hole in it! I pointed that out to the salesman who said, ''Oh, yeah, I guess you're right...'' that was the same response I got from the shop advisor when I took it in to have a 5" hole cut in the door.
The second thing I noticed was the propane bottle rack was loose and the poorly positioned regulator had rubbed a hole all the way thru the metal skin. And that occurred only from the trip from the factory to north Texas.
I must admit the dealer did a great job replacing the whole bottom skin on the front of the Shasta. I took it upon myself to reposition the propane bottle and regulator so they won't rub anymore.
The dealer had 3 other 16' shastas on the lot and all 3 had varying degrees of damage to the front skin caused by the bottle rack/regulator/hose. What a shame.
