Thank you for an informative video.
With all of the complaining among trailer owners and varying quality control at the factory, I am surprised not one followup post.
Not only should RV and Trailer manufacturers be forced to provide, promptly, their 'vague warranties of multiple products installed on or into their products', they should be compensate the owner financially for not being able to use their purchase. I had a brief case full of different components within my Airstreams and their... warranties.
It was easier for me to repair most of the problems in our 2014 25 foot International. I learned from these same components failing in my 2006 23 foot Safari. Both are discussed on the Airforums.
Even trying to have Jackson Center to provide the... PARTS... that I needed to make repairs was difficult if not impossible. As if I was lying to them and needed extra hardware for resale or just to accumulate in a carton.
Tires may be improved due to the large feedback on the Goodyear Marathons.
Dexter Axles... and brakes are possibly going to be the future... 'Marathon' upgrades.
The interior components of Airstream and no doubt other trailers change their components to the point that a previous year's trailer has different parts for the following year. Consider Air Conditioning and Refrigerators and then to water pumps, furnaces, propane tank hardware... and on.
How about DEAD Interstate Batteries on the dealer's lot? The dealer does not care as Interstate took the warranty hit and replacement. Same with most other parts installed in our Airstreams. Passing the... BUCK to the suppliers seems to be common.
Without any Lemon Law the RV Industry is not going to improve quality. Consider what the 1960's and 1970's auto industry was pushing out their doors. Rust.. at 12 months on the exterior finish and beyond. Air Conditioning out of service at 12 months and one day.
Buyer beware. Trust the dealer(s) who actually do provide prompt repair of warranty items. The dealer I had purchased from... get in line and suck it up... too busy to fix yours until the others get their turn.
