We have had our Cardinal since July of 2002. It is considered an 03 model. We have traveled at least monthly since then. With one trip to Florida - 6 weeks, 4,000 miles, Trip to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and
East Glacier National Parks - 8,000 miles. Last winter spent three months as Winter Texans - 7,000 miles. The rig has served us well and I still have some empty cabinets inside. However the basement is full and we need nothing more. It is a middle range rig. We have had some problems but no more than a rig bouncing along the USA highways would expect. We would not return to the same dealer, but have had no problems with the factory. If we need parts I just call the manufacturer's part department direct and purchase from them, it is much cheaper that way.
My drawers open sometimes and dump the silverware on the floor. Strange but you cannot predict which roads will cause this to happen--it varies.
We just added a kitten and the only place for a litter box will be the shower.
