Holding up very well. Only have had 2 issues, and one was completely my fault, but I'll share so you can learn from my mistake.
First one happened on a trip while breaking camp. A huge storm was heading in and we were really in a rush. Typically setting up and tearing down is something I do, and usually don't ask for, or get, a ton of help working on the TT. The wife cleans up inside and makes sure laundry is taken care of and the inside stuff is done, kids clean up toys and pick up any trash around the camsite, etc. Anyway, in this case she was really trying to help me avoid getting soaked and tried to close up the front window. The wind was blowing really hard, and she didn't realize the front cover had wing nuts that had to be loosened and really yanked hard. Needless to say the aluminum price bent, and badly. I had to rip it from the frame to get it closed. I ordered another aluminum bar from the dealer and was able to replace it, but it was pretty frustrating on a new rig. I saw her reach up as I was heading toward her from the rear of the TT, saw her reach up, and when I realized it looked like she was about to do a pull up, I let out a "Noooooooooo!!!!" buy was too late. Entirely my fault for not showing her how it worked, and she was trying to help.
Only other minor issue was I had to have the screws in the frame of the outside kitchen door tightened up a bit, as they rubbed when closing the door. Could have easily done this myself, but since I store it where I bought it, I just mentioned it when I dropped it off and they took care of it.
Only small price of advice I'll share is be careful that the sofas (we have 2 - one in front in one in back) are properly closed before towing. It is possible for it to look closed, but it can slide forward. It's not hard, but you have to make sure it is all the way back in before you lower the sitting surface for it to fully engage.
All in all, I'm very pleased with it thus far.
