No problems here. My truck and trailer have never been back to the dealer for warranty work.

Fourth season with our Rockwood HW popup - no major issues related to manufacture. Of course, I do not nave all those bells and whistles that the bigger rigs have. The fridge, AC, and microwave work, we do not use the radio CD player much and the dinnette slider is manual. I expect things to work a little loose with the bumps and jostling the camper gets when going down some of these roads and a few things have come loose or broken but they are easily fixed - though it would be nice to have something that is designed for those stresses with the reduced weights they are trying to make the trailers with. I have had to take the camper in for repairs from road damage - hit a stray hubcab and cracked the grey water lines under the camper and the lift cable broke (but I think that was operator error in lifting the roof when the camper was not level - newbee thing at the time.) and the awning pole is bent from not tying it down and having it flip over the camper (another newbee thing)... We are very happy with our camper.

We have a 2013 Puma Toyhauler no major issues so far in a little over a year......only warranty work was the curtain to the toy room eyelets were torn & the wallpaper type boarder had a couple bubbles.

Our 06 Puma we bought lightly used less than a year old never took it back while we owned it except for maintenance, our 88 Terry Resort had a refrig issue when new.......... We have had good luck........

I can say Puma has been the best campers we have owned for quality...........

86 Honda Accord, 02 Honda Civic, 03 Dodge 1500, 05 Honda CRV, 07 Honda Fit, 11 Subaru Outback all bought new & never went back for warranty work.

Can not say that for our 92 Ford F250, 94 Mercury Tracer, 98 Ford Mustang

Oaklevel, I'd love to see some pictures of your SVO. Have any online? I had an 86 GT I was very fond of.

Me! 5 months w/ the Roo, 10 trips, no issues to speak of (but plenty of mods!)

Unless you count my F150 brake caliper catching fire on our 2nd trip....

Bought a new 2012 Salem TT and not a single problem with it. Bought a new 2014 Rockwood 8280 on July 4 and I've had it in my possession for 3 days and it's been at the dealers location ever since trying to get the main slide working.
