I wonder if the HIGH end TT's like AirStream have the same issues?

I vacuumed the construction debris and yes, it would be good of them to require their workers to clean up after themselves. (I'm surprised we don't find leftovers from their lunch breaks) But what I would REALLY expect them to do is to test their plumbing systems for water tightness. We are on our maiden voyage in our Rockwood Mini Lite 2304 KS and experienced a minor flood because the hot water line to the bathroom faucet was not tightened. and water pooling between the shower stall and the door because of insufficient caulking.
Everyone knows how serious water damage can be. I want to know where the is the quality control ????????
Thank God I have the mechanical skills to fix these major annoyances on the fly. I really pity the poor trailer owners who do not poses the D I Y mechanical aptitude. Because we all know how quick and responsive many of the dealerships ( camping world for example) are !

I think most of them do that...its up to the dealers to clean up. What drives me crazy are the styrofoam beads that are constantly falling out of the AC ductwork and into light fixtures on my 21DS. Randy

I love the little aluminum curlicues that keep showing up in my carpet. I wonder why they couldn't have done their drilling before they put the carpet in. The problem is travel trailers are like cars in the 70's. They were pretty poor quality until the Japanese imports had higher quality and started cutting in US manufacturers sales.

My dealer cleaned everything on our 2016 Rockwood 8329SS. I am completely satisfied so far.

A lady my wife works with... she is about 60 YO and a pharmacist ..decided to buy a small TT.. I think 24 ft to park at a local RV park to live in. She is going to retire in a couple years and move back home. She didn't know what a TT was.. I don't think until she bought hers. I wonder how she even made it. No truck. No experience. Nothing. I guess the Lord takes care of innocent people. It has been about a year and I guess she is ok. I offered a little help, but she never has needed any.

Seriously doubt it. But, thats why you pay 40 thousand plus for a 20 foot Airstream instead of 15 grand for a FR.

Not only did I have the new trailer mess but the mess from 2 factory return trips. The benefit... Second return trip we found a set of pliers left in the fiver. Thanks for the gift FR.

Honestly, my crossroads TT was full of sawdust too.

Do the readers a favor and name the good dealers so we know more than just the complaints and bad experiences.

You do know that the sawdust is installed by the factory as crack insulation. Don't come back and complain about drafts in your RV.
