We have a 2012 8280 and just love it. We also bought it used after it had sat in storage for over a year. Smoke smell was a problem at first but solved that easily with a British product called "Auto Glym, Odour Eliminator" They also make an amazing polish. No leaks, no slide problems, previous owner had replaced the tires. The biggest problem was with the rear jacks. The jacks seemed to be jammed and as a result, the pin for using the hand crank was broken off by the previous owner. Upon investigation (took it all apart) I found that the motor was full of water (poor seal) and had seized. The manufacturer woudl do nothing and a new motor was over $200.00. Solution: Motor in the garbage, Covered electrical wires and with a strong string pulled the wires back up into the sidewall and secured them there for future access. Drilled out the broken pin, replaced it and now I get some bending over and cranking exersize whenever we move. We live (travel South in the winters 3-6000 miles) and park in a park in Ontario for the summer (6 months) in our trailer. Just love it and the weight is perfect for our F150.
