Like you, our problems were very minor (cosmetic) which I fixed.
I wonder if FR are using lower or cheaper grade products on their 2016 and 2017 campers.
In another thread, people are mentioning having problems with their hitch ball being too tight on the A frame. From what I read, FR changed the A-frame in March 2016. Makes me think that they change more than that A-frame in their new models. ($$$$$)
Another thread mentioned the bracket that holds the RVQ on the outside coming off the wall.......and now it's the AC and microwave !!!
Ours is a 2016, but built in 2015, and after a few outings, we didn't experience any of the above problems. I feel as of 2016, FR went from quality to quantity !!
