New Owner Satisfaction Survey

After reading a bunch of threads on issues like customer service, quality control, price point, build issues, whatever it is- could be RV lifestyle in general? I'd really like to know everyones opinion.

We bought used but pretty new, its an 08 Ocean Breeze. Yes it does have corrosion issues but it tows so well. We have had longer trailers however I think we found the right size for us. The 19ft allows us to fit just about anywhere. Gas mileage also improved, from 8 to 13 and yet we still have everything we had in the larger trailers.

Hi Joe,

I think your poll needs a sometimes button.

Regards,
Ken

Yes, new Airstreams are disappointing...but they're LESS disappointing than EVERYTHING else in life!

10 to nothin' for the home team. Not much of a showing, though, considering all the anti-airstream rantings I've read lately

None here at all! I am very happy I chose a vintage A/S instead of a newer model.

We've had our NEW AS going on three years this summer. At present its sitting in Jackson Center having had some MINOR warranty work done. The weather has not been condusive to hauling it back across Ohio yet. Every time we plan to go het her, we get snow or freezing drizzle or high winds.

Any way, my suggestion to you is to discontinue reading! 'Streamin is way too much fun and meeting other campers is way too filled with interest to worry. ENJOY your AS and quit reading! Those of us without problems don't bother to write and say how much we're enjoying it.........that'll probably be you, too.

Three years and warranty work?

Ditto.
My RV'in brother has gone through two factory new SOB's since I've owned my (new) 2008 30S/O. I could list ten issues (just the ones ranging from serious to showstopper) he's had on each.

Compared to our '67 Ambassador (from what I'm told, I was just a twinkle in my Dad's eye then), and our factory new '76 Sovereign- our 2008 30S/O is superior in every regard, including build quality.
