You must keep in mind that AirForums members are a small but vocal subset of Airstream owners. The vast majority of owners experience very few problems and obtain warranty service without the need to complain here on the Forums. In fact, many of them are unaware that the AirForums even exist. It's not like there's an AirForums brochure in every new Airstream, after all.
I like reading the various complaints, and trying to help folks solve their problems by means of long-distance second- and third-hand troubleshooting, but I don't consider those complaints to be truly representative of the majority of Airstreams.
In other words, don't worry about problems that haven't happened yet. Do a thorough walk-through before taking delivery, and test every installed system for yourself. The best inspector for any Airstream is the new owner, in this case you.
