Years ago I worked for liberty coach (we lowered the floor on sonic cruisers) and we never left a speck of debris. times change.

So is this normal for a new TT or just my Flagstaff?
normal.......the closer you look the more frustrated you will get

I believe the real problem is that everyone complains on the forums and not to FR. FR obviously doesn't read the forums. If you want something done, complain to FR.

When I tore down my 1975 Airstream for a rebuild I found cigarette butts, beer can pull tabs and over a hundred pop rivet stems inside the walls, along with some graffiti. Took off some plaster in my parents house that was built around 1908 and found a couple of vodka bottles in the walls. Some things NEVER change!

Should not be an excuse! I was at the dealer looking at a Rockwood 5er when SOB was brought in by a transporter. When he took the paperwork in a few from sales came out to see it. I asked what was going on and was told they wanted to see the new "nose job" for 2016. I asked to see inside and service brought a battery to open the slides. My wife, then I were the 1st in after slides were open. It was clean. We have spent 36 nights in it and have found no dirt, debris, or sawdust. Nothing blows from the AC or heat ducts, nothing is found on furniture or the floor even after 2000 miles of towing. Not knocking FR as I almost bought and plan on a FR class A in a few years BUT not sending a clean unit should not be acceptable.

Doubt it will happen, not enough market share. The US RV market is unique to the US. No other country builds them the size that is built in the US. FWIW they only build about 350,000 a year in the US and that includes all types of RV's. There are plenty of niches in the market too. There are some well built units out there that fantastically detailed, but they are very small segment of the market.

Most units like yours and mine were clean inside and continue to be. Its not the living area I was talking about its behind things like the microwave or electrical panel and such where construction debris were left.
