I understand that people are more likely to post out of frustration and anger when experiencing problems than they are when they are out camping having a great time and loving their trailer. Please put my mind at ease. It was a big purchase for me and I want to feel good about it.
Your experience will be just that. I will share mine.
We decided that we would have a better life if we spent time with the 5 & 6 year old grand children camping as we could build a personal relationship with them verses showing up at kid parties and one night sleep overs at our house. We are in our mid 50's, and I stress we ain't dead yet, we still go out and play.
Sept 14, bought a truck capable of towing the TT we had in mind. Jan 15, bought a 26BH similar to yours.
I am not a cheap person but research what I buy. I looked for my requirements and also shopped for the cheap. FR covers a vast variety of products and has a following that are loyal. I choose FR for that reason.
I knew going in that something could go wrong and I would have trouble as I am sort of handy but some things are out of my control. I found my rig 300 miles away at the price that would still make it ok if I had trouble and had to go to a local dealer during or after the manufacturer quit covering it.
I will be honest here, Since I was able to find a TT with all of the basic features that I required and more, for a low price, I was certain that I bought a popsicle stick product.
I have changed my outlook. I fully expected to take a bath on my purchase and now realize that I cannot get what I have price wise within 10k from other manufacturers.
Follow the basic maintenance with religion, you will be happy. This is probably the closest thing to being married you can find. I know my diamond is still out there in the ruff but for now she is ruffing it with me.
