We're looking at a 2002 Lance 1121. A search here and on Google brought up the issue of the wall sagging below the slide out. Lance has been fixing the problem with a peiece of angle steel.
The TC we are looking at has the plastic on the carpet and 16 hours on the genset and obviously has been in storage. The gelcoat is shiny because the owner garaged it. The wall is not saging at present because of non use.
I phoned Lance to see what they had to say. I spoke with ________ and he said "it was no rumor, Lance knows the wall sag is due to a design defect" and that I should get it "repaired" before it sags. Quote: "they all need to be fixed". I asked if it was a warranty issue (I would be the second owner), he said that Lance has been repairing a lot of second owners campers and to talk with the service (warranty) manager, Jim Allan (661-949-3322 ex 235).
Mr Allan said "NO", it is out of OEM warranty and to get lost. I asked that since the unit has been sitting would they consider a limited time 'warranty' since this seems to be a common problem and might sag once the camper is put into use. He said no, Lance will not now or ever warranty the frame sag.
Lance obviously wants their product to get a bad reputation.
I just thought you all might like to know. Call Jim if you dont believe me.
