I think most people realize that $3000 or so is not worth risking their life over. I value mine and more so my wife and son much more than that. Best of luck to all, especially those that haven't changed the trailing arms.

I own a 2003 Neptune. The trailing arms where replaced in 05 by monoco with reinforced factory recall arms. I just had the source engineering trailing arms and ride enhancement kit installed at JoSam alignment. The factory arms where starting to crack.
We use this my often. We have driven it 29000 miles in the last two years and enjoyed ever minute.
The ride now compared to before the upgrade is like night and day. No porpoising I or floating, the drive back to NH from FL was like riding in a new luxury bus.
We do not full time but use the bus as often as we can.
We boondock in state and national parks.
I have not found a better built coach anywhere at this price point and highly recommend it with the upgrades.
The only other weak point that I am aware of is the radiator. The aluminum one used on the earlier monococ have a high failure rate.

I take small bungee cords and tie the sliding door to the top of the rail and have had pretty good luck, at least the sliding door doesn't fall into the hallway anymore. I also installed small strips of metal to the bottom of the frame rail to better prevent the rollers from coming out of their track when the door is closed and locked.
