No crap eh.

You fail at understanding sarcasm apparantly.

My point was, your claim of you get what you pay for 101 don't wash in this game. Maybe if you buy a 200k dollar custom built coach, as in your logic of bringing up a Bently.

That fact that you say someone should just expect stuff to not be right because something doesn't cost very much is idiotic at best. You can argue your point all you want but I will continue to disagree. As for you calling me a sheep that believe anything. You couldn't be any further from the truth.

That would be like me calling you a troll lol. I haven't seen you do anything for this board other than come in here to tell the OP of this thread they should go sit in their trailer and think about what they have done.

That is not what I wrote, you seem very persistent in putting words in peoples mouth...reread my post again. What you're saying then is the only time Someone can voice their opinion is when they've done something for this board? That's beside the point and has nothing to do with the subject. You can be the most helpful, dedicated member of this forum, helped hundreds of other members here... But it doesn't make your argument automatically right. Stick to the subject and stop making it personal...by the way, I'd like to know of something hand made that is mass produced, and very complicated like an rv and sells really, really cheap compared to their competition that no one, or very few people are dissatisfied.

Then I must be an idiot then mr. Black for I believe if I want top quality, I have to pay for it. I guess in your world mr. Black, you expect the best...for half the price...if I ask you Toclean my house,car and do my laundry...would you do a good job for $6.00 an hour.... What if I'm a billionaire and I pay you $1,000 an hour to do the same job. Would you do a better job ? Hopefully you get the idea of what I'm trying to convey on my previous post, because you seem to be not getting it. Instead you keep putting words in my mouth.

When I was looking @ popups Vikings in my area were going for around 3000 bucks. I was told to stay away from them (not by any salesperson)The Jayco I bought was just under 6 G. They were similiarly sized & optioned trailers.

If all the component are from the same supplier, the manufacturer must be cutting corners somewhere, to price something that low that the dealer can still sell it & make a profit.

I do expect to receive what I pay for, but is it unreasonable to expect any product to be able to perform up to it's intended use no matter what the cost?

We're talking several thousand dollars, even for the low end models, when it comes to RV's. To me it's not unreasonable to expect whatever unit you purchase to live up to it's intended use. Low end models should smaller and have bare minimum features, but still function properly. The higher end models should be bigger and have more features, hence the higher cost.

Quality of build and equipment that operate properly should be expected and standard on all units, but then again, I guess I'm trying to live in a perfect world.

Please don't wake me, it's nice here!
