Me too. mine is #035 built May '09. I had some leakage at the wrap around windows during a serious Texas rain storm when new, but some caulk and nothing since. It's stored in a barn and our travels keep us in the 12" to 18" annual precipitation regions.

Nice meeting you also. No worries on the weather break....airstream put another one in your place!

What would you do.????

I'm in a concern here..looks like I am staying till Monday.

There is a loud creak by the shower door in the hall when I step on the floor.
I was hoping it would go away....but I'm more upset at what I discovered while making dinner tonight......

Airstream chipped my counter top and put the chipped piece back and did not tell me. I emailed Chris the second I found out....I'm sure they will fix it,......I'm going to stress all weekend now!!!

What do you guys/gals think?

There is even new caulk under the chip......

Here are some pics....














I'm so upset,..I could cry....I don't want to cause a stink here,..just good people....but I didn't do it......

I'm just worried..I hate conflicts.

Shane

I love all the karma talk here. People, this is a business. A business that is out to maximize their profit. I found several things damaged in mine. It's the reason I posted earlier about staying and looking at EVERYTHING in your camper. I had to leave but I found the gas leak and had to stay. If I had not walked into my camper when I turned on the tanks I would have filled the camper with gas. I too have damage to my drawers under my bed - the formica is chipped where it looks like they were dragged or stacked poorly on edge. The hood on the stove popped off partially on the tow home - only 2 of the 4 screws were in place. Welds on the frame supports to add strength (a factory recall they still will not admit to but will do the work for FREE) were not painted or treated for rust. On, and on and on.

I'll say it again, look over the interior close. Good luck on the repair, it's business not friendship.

Don't stress, Shane! Just tell Chris someone broke it and it needs fixing. (If it makes you feel better, throw in a "accidents happen, I don't want to get anyone in trouble, but I don't think I should accept this, do you?" in there.) Bummer.

Antique Ped, I had a leak in a bathroom wall seam. Returned to dealer; that issue seems to have been repaired - and I live in one of the wettest climates in N. America.

I have held back on having a RV shelter built because I want all problems to be exposed while it's under warranty.

It seems like there are a lot of problems with the 25' FCs. Mine is a 27 footer. I can't see how that would make a difference as to quality. Maybe more 25 footers are sold, so that's why they seem so prevalent on this forum.

Shane, I could cry for you, but don't leave until you are 100% satisfied.
Sounds like they were rushing because they know how badly you want to return home, but if things get wrecked because they are trying to accommodate a customer, all is lost.

My question here is, what year did Airstream start installing these gaskets? Or do they only install them when customers complain?

What?

They didn't install the gasket on mine.

Also there is no need to install one if there no leak or even if there is.

The y have been making airstreams for over 75 years....this gasket is just a preventative"....not something that is required to make the trailer leak proof.....according to my situation,..the bead was too small. IMO, THIS IS NOT A DESIGN FLAW,.....just a added reinforcement.

So....thats NOT your Airstream in the photo?

Look at that pic and you can see that vertical seam has not been sealed at all, is that coach still on the assembly line?

Exactly how do they determine who needs the weatherstrip? and why?

.....little confused as to what they did to stop your leak.

Hope you are able to get the floor and counter fixed asap, be firm but stay positive.

It makes me sick that there are new problems.

I hate this.

We're all pulling for you, Shane.

No not my airstream. Airstream was not finished. All current made airstreams get that gasket from why I'm told.

To stop my leak they sealed the seam that did not have a large enough bead....and sealed both sides of the belt line, top and bottom. I saw what they did and am VERRY satisfied.



Hope all goes smooth Monday.

Shane

I'm tempted to name this thread The Agony and The Ecstasy.


BTW, how do you find out what your assembly-line number is and date of roll-out? Someone said it is on the shower sticker, but I've removed mine.
