Just reading latest FMCA magazine article about coach weighing, in particular 4 corner weighing. Suggest all read it and look for 4 corner weighing teams' schedule at Frequently Asked Questions About RV Weighing

Since we are off topic….

This is just not happening.

I have put over 150,000 total on three Hyundai cars. The total warranty costs to me were $0. The total number of trips to dealer service was two.
One was a burned out headlight, which was replaced for free. The other was a non-safety recall concerning the sun roof motor switch which was replaced for free. Tell me an RV company that will replace a single light bulb?

Now compare that to the numerous items improperly designed or assembled by Coachmen including items such as bare electric wire ends, paint cans left rolling around under the floor, six corroded brake & back-up light bulbs, mis-mounted water pump, corroded rear bumper, rusted water inlet panel, leaking front coach window, short glass retainer strip on side window, 1/4" to 1/2" gaps in area of coach to cab attachment, water drains directing water onto electrical controls, incorrect venting of refrigerator, incorrectly labeled factory wiring diagram, incorrect wire color selection, missing trim screws, crushed heat duct hoses, improperly mounted holding tank dump valves, improper selection of body screws resulting in 90% being corroded and rusting while the chassis bolts and screws have no rust or corrosion.
No conspiracy theories here, the last time I read in to the subject, Ford could export one car into Korea for every 50 that was imported into the US. As you know, engineering is a trade off and reliability costs something.

Coachmen…..I've got nothing for you. Quality is a choice made by the management team.
