Disney, Skidaway island State Park 2,500 mile trip post mortem

Valences fell off the wall (screws securing the valances popped right out) on the way home). Contemplating removing them completely or running new screws.

Lower cabinet under the side bunk separated from the laminate side wall of the fridge compartment at the bottom. Have a 1/2 inch gap and the laminate is

Also, cutting board never stayed in the sink. I always found it on the floor when I opened up the camper.

Clips holding storage doors closed (metal thumb screws that secure the opposite end of each compartment) all came loose and no longer latch.

Snaps holding mattresses to bunks ripped through the canvas.

Had a great, safe trip overall, but it is a real bummer that these little things keep happening.

Hopefully these are all considered warranty items.

Did you drive all the way down and back in the median? You gotta stay on the hard top!

Mine never stays in place either. When you look at the design I dont think there is any way it ever would. I put mine behind the seat back cushion on my dinette when towing or some times I tape it in place with 3m blue painters tape.

Pics of the canvas tab that is supposed to secure the mattress to the bunk end when you fold it up. One snap ripped through it and the other is almost ripped too. The other Pic reflects the valance that came disconnected. The last pic shows the lower cabinet separated from the wall of the fridge wall.

My two DD's are really gentle, but it looks like I have a team of football players tearing the place apart.

Yeah, I'd be having a conversation with my dealer about these ~ it just doesnt speak to good quality craftsmanship. My unit is a year old and I'm pretty sure the previous owners had kids and the snaps are partially pulled away too. I think the delam issue is most bothersome. I'm thinking they need to fix this.....

Our wall did that too! But our dealership wouldn't cover it.
