We purchased a Rpod 4 years ago with no problems the two years we had it then we traded up to a Surveyor SP 240 and have not had any problems with it. Couple of screws needed tightening but other than that no real problems. Love camping in our TT

So far my only problem has been a broken sink. This was when the trailer was nearly 2 years old, and I left a bottle of dish soap in that sink and found some really rough roads with a rear kitchen model. Really it's been very good... Oh, and I let the pump freeze... DOH!!!

I've had mine for a year and the power jack button stopped working. I replaced it for $50. Other than that no problems. Knock on wood.

owned our last camper for 11 months just to discover axle hangers were not welded on in right location, explaining our severe tire wear. So we traded it for a new 5th wheel in January which I am still working the kinks out of and haven't even used it yet.

We have had our ww haritage glen lite 300bh for one year now. Only two issues.

First was the outside kitchen door. Had the door, hinge and struts replaced under warrenty. The new struts are not near as stiff, and I believe will prevent the problem again.

Second was the remote control brain box. The power wire to the electric stabilizer shorted out and fried the box. I was slow to get it fixed, which turned out to be best. The maker of the box has discontinued the old one and is creating a new version, which I hope has protection from this happening again.

2014 FR3 and in the first few months including one big road trip the only issue is the fuse to the overhead bunk has blown at least four times. Not a big deal, easy to fix. I will upgrade to self resetting breaker and may have dealer look into it someday. The right side speakers on both stereos would not work when I got it home. I took them apart and swapped speakers, tried everything with no luck. The next day I was showing the rig off to my brother and they worked fine, healed themselves overnight and have been perfect ever since. I guess I am pretty lucky to have almost no issues at all.

Our first was a used TT and other than minor issues, no real probs. same for our second, a used class c. The third was a brand new FR Fun Mover class c. Within the first week, tv out, micro out, crack in toilet (not winter related) and generator problems. All fixed under warrantee. Our next was a new FR Wolf Pack 27 WP toy hauler. Only problem was a broken plastic license plate holder, and a lost on the road tail light lense. Fixed those myself. This Friday ( tomorrow) we do the walk thru and pick up our brand new FR Vengenance 39R12 5th wheel toy hauler. Hopefully, it will treat us well, as this will be our retirement camper.

We've had ours since October with only one issue of a leak that was traced back to a seal crack around the door, related to a deadbolt that wouldn't line up right. Taken care of under warranty. So far so good with everything else. We've had 11 nights in it so far. Can't wait to get out with it again!
