Brought home our Roo yesterday after having it at National RV for service as set up by the dealer we bought from. Looks like all issues were repaired successfully a couple of days early, and the scratched window is on order. We're heading out for a short weekend trip, and looking forward to it!

This is good news. Hopefully, you'll get back all your lost enthusiasm. It took us about 13-14 months to get our trailer's wrinkles ironed out. Now we have so much enthusiasm, we hate to be at the stick and brick house!

Took a short trip this weekend and had a few minor incidents with the Roo. The little catch in the outside door wasn't 'catching' the latch on the screen door so I decided to adjust it. No go...... The screws wouldn't tighten into the door. The wife also discovered the bottom of the back side of the drawer under the oven was hanging down and the drawer wouldn't close. The staples had pulled out. There was only the platter from the microwave and a small, light smoothie. maker in it. Cheap, cheap CHEAP! Oh, and also, our furnace STILL isn't fixed! Ran for a bit then started making noise again. I should have known it wasn't fixed when the service manager told me it was simply 'loose', which I knew wasn't the case.

We'll get this thing sorted out in time, but you would think for $20 something K there would be a bit more attention to quality than we have seen.

The only 'attention' I've seen so far is attention to cost savings. Make it as cheaply as possible.

It's probably a lot cheaper to do a half-arse job and pay to fix a few of them than to do a grade-A job on all of them.

The inconsistency bothers me almost as much as the poor quality. You have had many more issues with your unit that I've had with both of mine combined. Plus I haven't had the same issues. What's up with that? Different crews/shifts? (Monday hangover?)

The aluminum on the door is very thin and if the screws on the latch or strike are over tightened, they will strip. Easiest solution is to replace with a slightly larger screw. Be careful to try to find one with the same size head.

That was my plan. They were stripped before I even tightened them.

Had a 2015 Winnie Class A beside me this week. He has had major problems that have not been resolved. The unit was in the shop 280 days in just over a year. He had mediation and was basically told "tough". Just one side of the story to be sure. So ~~ now he has filed and will be taking Winnie and Freightliner to court. Surely the biggest winners will be the lawyers...
