We have had our 2011 Brookstone 366RE for just over two months. I love the floorplan but be have had lots of problems. The shower leaked in 3 spots so my hubby sealed it again. The bathroom faucet hot handle squeaks really bad but was replaced by warranty. The slide in the kitchen mars the floor, the fantastic fan is really noisy, the closet pole fell down on the first ride, the rear window leaks, & the carpet is very thin. The TV top corian in the rear rubs the shades when going up and down,the slide out remote eats batteries so I have to put new ones in it each time. The kitchen sink drain is higher than around it so all the water doesn't drain well. This is bad when you pour coffee as you use a lot of water to flush and not stain your new sink. Make sure all your cabinet doors are closed before moving slide outs. Hard to do sometimes and I broke the molding on the kitchen slide. On the good side, my warranty guy has really helped me to get these items fixed but we repaired most on our own. He is sometimes slow to respond but so far so good.
We live in our 5th wheel almost full time and the warranty is void if you do live in it full time so we stay a couple weeks at friends houses.
We have been staying in an RV park and have had other Brookstone owners talk to us. Unfortunately, most have had nothing but problems. One couple from Canada is selling theirs after just a year as they think theirs is a lemon. I was hoping this RV would be our last for awhile but if we have more problems, we might trade her in. I thought I did enough research but I guess I didn't. Which is the best RV for "almost" full timing?
