I am a prospective buyer of my first motorhome and this one looks like the one for me. I justt get a little skittish sometimes thinking about the possible repairs, time in the shop, recalls, and things of that nature.
Is this just part of the territory when buying any RV? I was told by the dealer that Dynamax is of a very high quality and is dependable.
Any Rev owners that want to share their basic overall impressions? Or possibly a few things for me to keep an eye out for/consider? It would be very, very much appreciated.
I bought my REV earlier this summer and so far I have only had a few minor issues. I made and cancelled two visits to the dealers service department because they were not worth the trip. I will probably take it in over the winter to have another step installed and get the other stuff done then.
So, mostly trouble free. Much better build and quality than most other brands. Lots of good accessories included that will cost you thousands of Dollars to add to "equivalent" motorhomes.
Good ride. very tight turning circle. easy to maneuver. quiet. Good headlights. Lots of storage. I receive compliments every time I take it out. Looks great. Excellent bathroom and big enough for me!
I weigh close to 300 lbs. so the driver's seat is a little small for me but not so small that I can't go where I want to go. The dash AC is less effective than the Chevy chassis and the Ford. You may want to find out where you can get the Dodge Promaster chassis serviced before you buy. Most Dodge dealers can't lift a motorhome.
I was concerned about the 6 cylinder engine but we have adapted to each other; although I have not gone up the mountain to Penn State yet. a few days ago I found myself cruising close to 80 on the NJ turnpike, once I realized my speed I slowed a little. I can't see the speedometer during daylight, too dark. I use my GPS to tell me the speed.
Essentially, most of my issues are with Dodge, not Dynamax. However there are few issues to hassle over compared to other brands.
You can look at some of my posts in this forum for my other comments.
I would not hesitate to buy another one. I had plans to get a Tiffin in the next few years but I don't know that I could do that now. Dynamax has spoiled me.
