When you buy an RV today, it doesnt matter whether you spend $40K or $400K, it is essentially a rolling PIS. The manufacturers dont really stand by it and you have to wrestle over getting RV work done. When we bought ours new, we took it home and found some problems. I called the dealership. And they told me to bring it right in Then I asked how long will it take and he said 6 to 8 weeks, yES - WEEKS. I told him that I just bought it yesterday. The Corporate office was not any more sympathetic. KEYSTONE is the manufacturer. I went down in person and not actually yelling, just talking loudly so customers could hear me. They wouldnt set a date to bring it in and have the work done immediately there after. NOOOOOOOOOOOO, I had to bring it in and wait the 6 to 8 weeks after I brought it in. I then raised my voice louder and announcede to the crowd "Did you hear that - This man is so stupid and incapable of marking up a calendar and scheduling a drop off and pick up date. I bougth the thing yesterday and now he is telling me to bring it in and wait 6 to 8 weeks This guy is the supervisor of maintenance and can't read a calendar".Then they asked me to leave and i told them That I was just going to sit and wait for them to call the police while I call the local news paper. Finally they received a phone call and asked me to get on the line. It was the owner. He told me to bring in the RV tomorrow and they would fix some of the items and the less important items could wait and bring it back in 6 weeks and they will work on it immediately. I agreed and when everyone was looking at me as I was walking out, I took a big bow in front of my audience.
They eventually honered that part but it still was a wrestling match ever since.
