We started with a used coleman pop up. Never a problem, next was an Antigua hybrid, never an issue. In 2011 we bought a jayflight 28bhs and was a great unit with the only issue being the toilet valve would occasionally stick and allow water to flow into the bowl with the dump valve closed, was fixed under warranty with camping world bending over backwards to accommodate us.. Just traded in on a new fifth wheel, I have high hopes on this unit, it's a beauty!

You and I must be twins!!! I started with a Starcraft Pop up, then 2001 Jayco Kiwi 23b hybrid, then 2011 Jayco Jayflight 29bhs, and just last year went to a 2013 Rockwood 8281SS. All in 7 years. Loved them all. Had very little problems with any of them. So far with one season under my belt, with my 5w. It has been great!!!!

Lol. We laugh when we read about the "get the third one first" deal. We bought our 5er first. We love it so far...except I get jealous of some of these super fancy ones...I guess they come with a fancy price tag. Loving life.

On my fifth trailer, two pop ups and three travel trailers and I must be sitting on a stack of horse shoes because I have had no problems with any, no tire problems, no nothing? I am looking for a new tow vehicle for last Friday night after the show my wife and I had no wheels to drive home in, obviously someone needed a ride more than we did, this is only the third vehicle to disappear in 15 years

We bought our first new one in August of '13. Only had it out twice and no major problems...

The only problem so far is left brake light does't work on trailer...Problem truck or plug problem though....

Keeping my fingers crossed....

Problems

I think that most of the problems we have with RVs could be prevented if Dealers would back what they sell. Very few dealers back what they sell.
