Interior Partition -26U

Hi, I just looked at a 2016 26U and it had an obvious problem with the interior partitions. From just inside the door, the panel that backs up to the shower was pulled off of the interior skin by a good inch. It looked like both the panel with the TV and hallway panel were out of whack. The bathroom door didnít close correctly, either. Someone had attempted to repair the panel by the door with a couple screws from the outside of the panel into the floor but, it hadnít fixed the problem. I have two questions. First, why would you remove those panels at all - what kind of problem might have happened? Secondly, how should they have been attached to the interior skin to avoid the gap?

Is that a Queen? I think some of the 26 RBQs had some problems in that area. On the 26 RBTs, the panels are supported by the drawer structure and left twin bed.

I once sat in a brand new 30 foot Airstream that had similar issues. This one had the bathroom wall off camber, very obvious.

The salesman said if we didn't like it, don't buy it.

We didn't.

That panel on the one you looked at may have been like that from new.

I've also seen a brand new 30 foot Airstream where the kitchen cabinet/base was installed an inch or more from the inner skin. We didn't buy that one either

Look 'em over good!!

Thanks for the replies. Yes, this was the RBQ. For 5 years old, this one was a little beat on and we will probably pass.

Our 2018 26ft doesn't have that issue with just over 15k miles towed so far. Not sure if it was just not properly anchored to the walls from factory to begin with. I'd ask for it to be repaired properly if considering purchasing it.
