We also have a 2016 Bullet 269RLS and really like it. We bought it in April of this year and have pulled it around 7,000 miles and spent many nights in it. We did change out the mattress on day one before we left CW with it and we negotiated a second deep cycle battery into the deal. Nice! So far no major problems with anything, but here are a couple of things to keep an eye on.
1. On I-16 in GA the road was so rough and dippy we had a tie down for the driver side rear swivel rocker pull loose from the floor with the result being the narrow paneling trim on the rear facing part of the slide was broken and a hole punched into the inside of the rear paneling. The tie downs are attached to the floor with fairly small screws for their task. I just removed the broken paneling piece and we don't even notice it being gone and we covered over the hole. Now we lay the chair face down sideways and pad it with no more damage resulting.
2. On the two week, 2,400 miles trip we just returned from a few days ago we had a piece of ceiling and its trim pop loose. While fixing it I discovered the ceiling, at least that piece, was attached to the aluminum ceiling joists with a nail gun! I am not sure why any manufacturer would think small nail gun nails would ever hold up being shot into aluminum!! Crazy! I fixed this with a commercial adhesive, a few screws and some caulk. I will now carry those small screws in my tool kit because I have a feeling there could be more issues like this in the future.
The only other problem we have is the bedroom screen door will not latch. Never has, but not a big deal since we never use that door or leave the main bedroom door open anyway. Since I have a feeling I may be getting the recall notice for the air conditioner wiring I will have that fixed under warranty when I take it in.
In spite of what the manufacturers and dealers brag about their quality control sucks and I frequently wonder why we have to pay a dealer prep fee when they don't seem to bother to earn it by going through the trailers they sell with a fine tooth comb. (End of rant) But as I said we are very happy with our Bullet.
