Hey all, First post here,lots of great information! I am looking for a toy hauler to haul a custon 66VW to shows. I work with a guy who has one and he invited me to look at it...
Turns out he has been in contact with them for a long while and getting nothing but a run around. He showed me the problems (misdrilled hole caused most of the floor to rot out and cracking frame welds). My question is this. Has anyone else either had problems with them, seems most info is positive? And, are they as difficult to deal with as I have seen in this case? ie, unreturned/ignored calls? I think they have what I need, but am gun shy to the headaches and dont want to end up with 20,000 worth of scrap trailer?!

Thanks in advance,
Tom

Well, first of all, Toms66, WELCOME TO iRV2!! we hope your "travels" here are fun and invigorating!

Long time WW owner...had two of them for a total of about 8 years. Depending on their use, yes...you could have some issues, but I've only had minor ones to date (the 2006- the factory has been delaing with to my satisfaction). My 1995 had some issues, but I bought it used and did alot of work to get it back to "normal". Nothing that a regular RV owner woudln't expect.

The cracking frame welds are dependent on exactly where they are...what year is your buddy's? We can start there...and you may want to complete your profile setup so we know what part 'o the country you're in so we can respond accordingly. We've got quite a few WW owners here and are willing to help you decide!

Sean

Welcome aboard Toms66, We have a lot of WW's around here, not to mention a bunch of others too. I happen to be a happy owner of a 2003 but I have seen some pretty bad stuff from some on here with the newer ones although most, if in the local area of the factory have been taken care of from what I've heard. Good luck on your search and come back often.

Welcome to the site Tom. They should re-name the this forum "WW corner" due to the fact that we have a lot of WW owner that seem to congregate here. I am on my second WW. The first was a SuperLite and it had a few major problems. The great thing about WW is they stand behind their product. If you don't mind waiting a little while for repairs and making a appointment to drop it off. I had a major structural issue with the first one and not only did they correct the problem, their corrections went into the next year design.

I have had My current one for about a year and a half. A few thing go wrong here and there but I fix them all myself. Partly because I don't want to drag it to Paris, CA and also because they are minor enough to handle on my own.

Let us know what you are thinking about buying. Maybe someone has had something similar. Also keep in mind if you are using it to haul to Bug and it has been lowered, take the drop into consideration because you want to make sure it can crest the top of the ramp door without getting high centered. I had this problem with my MG and almost tore a whole on the floor covering. Good luck

Rod

Thanks for the fast replies! I did update the profile. We are up here in the great Northwest. Maybe his problems stem from that, though I know he stores it inside the weather here while towing is aweful, and his hole was underneath....near the tire wells?! Also if it helps his is a 2004. My bug is not lowered....yet.... So I will keep that in mind, thanks.

Currently we tow just an 8 foot teardrop, and obviously that means the bug can not go along, but the toy hauler would be just for the occasional trip. Have even thought of just a flat bed but like the idea of the extra room, so still a lot of searching before we decide.

The positive response from WW seems to be more located south so maybe sometihng made more local will be the answer, but I appreciate all the info thus far!

Again thanks,
Tom

All rv manufacturers have issues with their coaches. For those of us not close enough to let the manufacturer repair our trailers, A good dealer service department is vital. I've had a few problems with my TH, but my dealer did a great job on the repairs. Look at the dealers service department before you buy and check out the quality of work they perform. I'm more then happy with my WW.
