I read all these posts, and it really amazes me. We bought our Vacationer 'virtually' new. Fit and finish was/is excellent. Never let us down, never stranded. Anything that has gone wrong, and that list is really short, was because my head was where it shouldn't have been regarding maintenance. Now, all kind of folks are ranting about these newer MHs. I know they're pretty, but how can a manufacturer glue together slop and hope the word doesn't get out? After my short time on this forum, I know one thing. If/when we get another MH, it will be used to the point of 8-12 years old. Affordable, still has some quality, and full inspections subsequent to mine are not that expensive. I'm really saddened by the state of modern MH manufacturing.

Thor quality is poo poo for sure at least on the ones I have dealt with. Not saying that their high end DP's are never had the experience but my Thor jazz was horrible. They also did not put the correct weight info on the required stickers making the tires overloaded. Guess what happened, yep three sets of tires in 3 years. Replaced lots of things that that exploding tires damaged, plumbing, fenders etc. seems they don't care so much about safety or reputation. Father in law had a Thor infinity. Clear coat peeled off the baggage doors second year. Had a 30 power supply that would not allow you to run both a/c units at the same time. 1 or the other, nice in summer. I could go on and on but won't. I'd be looking at newmar, tiffin, jayco, or Winnebago for quality if it were my money. Personally I also would not buy a new coach as mentioned earlier. Nothing depreciates faster than an RV. Let someone else get the bugs worked out and take the depreciation hit. Just make sure it was not a rental!
