Our Wildcat Mess!

We purchased our new Wildcat 293REX from Byerly RV at the end of January 2013. This being our 3rd camper purchased in the past 10 years - we were so excited to move up to the 5th wheel. BUT, this camper has been nothing but a nightmare since we purchased it. We have had it back to the dealer two times already with another scheduled visit this week. The underpinning was completely falling off from beneath the camper, the dining/living room slides would not function, now the wardrobe slide motor is out and the slides leak, Iím not talking a small leak, Iím saying water is running down over top of my cabinets Ė to the point where the cabinet seams are splitting, the drawers are warped and my carpet is still wet! Iíve explained to the dealer that I want the cabinets and flooring replaced Ė allís they can say is Ďwe have to see what repairs the manufacturer approvesí -- well Forest River, hereís your heads up that a request is coming your way!

According to the Internet - the lemon laws don't apply to RVs. Don't know if it's true or not.
