A door that should have been rejected!

I want to show a cupboard door that should have never been installed in my new mini lite 1809s. We chose tuscan cream as the colour inside with hard wood floor. Many of my doors inside are full of painted fingerprints. I am including a door to show you how a door like this passed the inspection. By the way I went to my hardware store to have a gallon of custoom matches colour to repaint all the doors inside. I gess the trailer standard nowaday is not the way I see it?

I'm with you on that.

That looks pretty bad. Unfortunately this type of work on new RV's is commonly expected, but we shouldn't have to accept it. I don't care if you spent $10k or $100k.
Another bad side to all of this is, if you want it fixed right chances are you'll have to do it yourself.
There are units being built right and there are some dealerships that do quality work, they just seem hard to find.

Have you contacted FR and informed them of your defects??
I suggest a phone call followed with close up photos.
Give them a chance to make good on it.
There are no fingerprints in my doors! (except mine....)

I would be discussing this with your dealer and they should be helping you out. I had some hairline cracks in the dining room table top and sent the dealer a few pics of it. They ordered me a new table that same day, the new table came in one of their trailers they ordered after that so there was no shipping involved either (not that I would have paid it anyway).
