Did your brand new unit have any problems?

Was there anything wrong with your unit when you purchased it brand new from a dealer?

Whether it's 1 thing or 29, big or small, you fixed it or dealer fixed it.

List it here if you could.

Another member believes the quality in the industry is pretty darn good and the majority of units have no issues.

I'm curious to know if this is true.

I am happy with the trailer... Had a few minor things, no big deal necessarily.

1) had a bad entry door keypad. A call to the mfg sent us a new one no questions over nighted.

2)bathroom door knob and striker off by 1". I moved the striker.

3)missing some sealant with a 1/4" gap around shower surround. I re-siliconed it.

4)loose brads and molding around doors and slides. I re-attached with better fasteners than 18ga brads.

These quality threads are getting out of hand. Do we really need another thread for people to complain and make it sound like the world is going to stop because they have issues with there trailer. If making a trailer with no problems is as easy as some people on here say than maybe they need to start there own business and become millionaires.

X1000.

These "let's all sit and complain" threads (quality, bad neighbors, bad drivers, etc) do nothing but divide the membership. For these quality threads, I have yet to see where any member has stood up and organized a grassroots campaign to actually make change and make things better. Lots of complaining with no goal nor call to action. Pointless wastes of time, IMO.

If you're going to complain, at least step up and try to do something to make it better.

I do agree they seem to be coming up like rabbits.. I guess it is one of those phases. Maybe next week they will all be how great the FR quality control is.

Maybe the Goshen Rally sparked the trend.

But think about it, that is what people generally come to the internet to do.. Complain. I often see new members that their first post is a complain thread not a I love my tenement on wheels.

My Windjammer will be 1 year old in September. I just had to get the slide-out adjusted. It took them all of 5 minutes. It's been a great trailer. No other problems. I had a Heartland trailer before and it was a lemon. Pages of problems with it. Love the Windjammer.
