Nice! I can't wait to our night count up this summer.

I too just got a 269. Just curious where were the leaks? Our first trip will be memorial day but have had several big rains since purchase date and have not noticed anything wet inside.

If you have/had leaks, were they located around the vents or the slide? I purchased the slide toppers and we have had no leaks...xcept for a shower leak, and that was fixed by the dealer.

I picked mine up about a month ago and am still waiting to get out in it. Probably soon. I have it set up in the driveway though and we have had nothing but torrential downpours here. Not one drop of water inside yet.

We own a 2014 Solaire 307. It has been a horrible expeience. After only camping three times this summer, a slide out controller failed, the slide out floor started to fall out, the air conditioning failed, plumbing leaks in the bathroom, finish cracking on one of the outside storage doors, the power jack stopped working, some of the LED bulbs in the awning and front of trailer are blown. We are very frustrated.

Soliare Quality

Does anyone else own a Solaire? We own a 2014 Solaire 307 with the Eclipse package. It has been a horrible expeience. After only camping three times this summer, a slide out controller failed, the slide out floor started to fall out, one of the slide outs starting leaking in the rain, the air conditioning failed, plumbing leaks in the bathroom, finish cracking on one of the outside storage doors, the power jack stopped working, some of the LED bulbs in the awning and front of trailer are blown. We are very frustrated. We were wondering if anyone one else has had issues with their Solaire.

Sorry to hear about your experience. Just keep in mind that many of the systems you report having problems with are used industry wide. The slide out controller, a/c and power jack issues aren't really SolAire issues, as they are the same components used industry wide. Some of the other issues are new ones for me. Hopefully your dealer will get all fixed up for you.

We have been happy with ours. I hope they resolve everything quickly for you and that you have a better service department than I do.
