I have a lot of issues with the construction quality of my new forester sunseeker. The unit came with cabinet constructed warped, the couch built crooked, the cabinet door handles drilled crooked, one cabinet scratched and the door chipped. Draw base doors don't line up, the lament edges peeling. I'm a contractor by trade and I can't believe these items past factory quality control. I hope the factory will correct these issues, it's my first rv so was wondering if this is common in rv construction.?

Hello and welcome. Sadly, these issues are across the board with all rv manufacturers regardless of price of the rig. The key is how a company stands behind their product and finding a good dealer. I can tell you I started with a list of 40 things wrong on my fiver. Forest river and my dealer have been wonderful in trying to fix all of my issues and keep me happy at the same time.

Welcome to the forum. Yep pretty much the norm for poor quality. If you dealer works with ya they will get the issues corrected with the help of FS. Once your good to go enjoys Later RJD
