What experience has anyone had with this product line, and how does the overall quality and construction compare to other manufacturers. My daughter and son-in-law are looking at a new '08 Cirrus 28crls. I have found the same floorplan on a used '07 Jayco 29n, available locally. My concerns are the rumors of Pilgrim going under. At what deal level (% off msrp) would you buy a unit from a potentially bankrupt company, if any? Any input is appreciated.

All of the main systems - Refer, Toiliet, Stove, Water Heater, Furnace etc all have OEM warrantys that the end mfg passes on to the customer. The customer has the option of using the OEM or the end mfg warranty for handling repairs. Most RV mfgs include all the warranty registrations with the unit so it is up to the customer to fill them out and send them in. If Pilgram suddenly goes out of business the warranty on all their rigs most likey also goes away. I can also see where they might have to provide some sort of reserve fund to handle such repairs for recent customers. Most RV repair shops can handle repairs on any rig. Problems I can see would be if there are any moulded parts on the exterior - such as end caps, these might be hard to come by if the mfg goes under as would repairs that would require something like a new sidewall. The resale value would probably also suffer.
