Triple e is alive!

I had to post this. These are built two blocks away from my school.
I see them everyday, and they are beautiful.
Built like a tank, and amazing quality.

I love Triple E. My first motorhome was a 19' 1979 Triple E class A. One piece fibreglass roof, and amazing under belly insulation. The bad part was the 454 and exhaust manifolds...

A former coworker bought a Jayco but wanted a Winkler built Triple E.

We used to have a Triple E Topaz fiver. It was a great rig. I wish they still made them. They were expensive but you get what you pay for.

Factory tour.
I wish FR would spend half the time these guys do, building an RV.
Leak check every unit.
Check out the plumbing and wiring.
Clean, neat and tidy.

THEY EVEN WEIGH EVERY UNIT!!

I do wish, they would build sobering bigger than a sprinter. I would buy that.

They used to do everything...
Almost went under. Now, only B class. Get in line if you want one, there's a waiting list. Every unit that leaves, is sold. ( so I am told..)

Beautiful high end rig if you really want to spend $50k more than what a FR MBS will cost you, even if it does come with TPMS standard. 😊

Sure!
In all the quality threads.. Members were begging for some decent quality. They said they would be more than willing to pay for that quality. Well, here it is.
6 weeks to build a single unit, everything made in house.

I'm certain though, when it actually boils down to writing the check...
People don't really care as much as they say they do..
Everything is driven by price.
Turning FR quality up is not going to cost a few grand.

This is what FR could look like.
But then, nobody would pay.

Indeed, everyone wants a flagship Lexus for the price of a Kia. Nevertheless, thank you for sharing the interesting video.
