This is how cheap RVs are put together, with lots of staples. They are not built to last. Some are defective from the time they roll off the assembly line. That’s not acceptable to the editors of RVtravel.com. Tell us about your “lemon” RV at RVHorrorStories.com.

2 Thoughts to “Fed up with your defective RV? Get help!”

  1. SFC Dennis R Strope, USA, RET

    Channel surfing, it’s a pastime. “Going RV” my, don’t those RV’s look splendid! There needs to be a program showcasing ‘follow-ups’ and the problems / cheapness, these millennials are facing after buying…

  2. Roy

    The need for this type resource just confirms what I’ve written previously about the new RVIA 10 million $$ program to train ‘TECHS’. Spend the money on getting manufacturers to produce a better product and you could cut the need for technicians by a HUGE percentage. If nothing else, it would make a reduced work load for the trained techs.

    It really STARTS with MAKE BETTER PRODUCTS !! It is the choice of the manufacturer to produce cheap junk !!
