Lance Travel Trailer Quality

I am looking at a Lance travel trailer. I would like to know what everyone thinks about the overall quality? Thanks in advance for your help!

I have not owned a Lance trailer... but I will say if they had made one the size and floor-plan that I needed, I would. They have a great reputation for being one of the best.

I don't currently own a Lance. My dear friend has owned both a Lance Truck Camper and now a Lance TT. Excellent build quality one of the best. IMHO not built as strong and heavy as Northwood or ORV but very solid, cabinets all cnc machined beautiful fit and finish. Lance sidewalls have Azdel which helps protect against delam and save weight.

All RVs take a beating bouncing down the road and will have a few problems but Lance is one of the best and also they back what they sell. The two I mentioned above are also great choices if you need a larger TT.

Good Luck in your search

We had a Lance and it was an excellent trailer. Customer service is superior and the owners' group (LOA) is wonderful and fun bunch of people to meet up with for rallies. We were unable to find the floor plan we wanted in the Lance product or we would have purchased again. BTW, we sold our Lance trailer, day-one, for our asking price in cash.

I don't have personal experience with Lance but a good friend has a 1685. After his last trip told me he may sell it once it goes out of warranty due to the list of issues after each trip. In fairness to Lance - his trips have been 4-6 weeks at a time. Also he tends to be hard on equipment.

I have heard that the Lance TT is very nice, have never actually seen one. We have a Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106DS and it is great on both fit and finish. We have not had any problems at all. We looked at everything available in our area while shopping and the MM was far above the rest so we bought it. Good luck with your choice...

Sold our 2011 Lance 1985 ..... (traded actually on Chaparral 5th)

1. Biggest problem was a water leak from the shower fitting (impossible to get at unless you pull the refrigerator). Lance for the sake of 1 cents worth Teflon tape - water logged floor that could not be repaired.

2. These TT are LOW (to low) to the ground to the point that the sewer connection is often LOWER than sewer connection at campgrounds. Many Lance TT owners are ordering a lift kit ... this is a well know problem.

Along with this because the TT holding tanks are long but shallow even when able to be HIGHER / ABOVE the sewer - the BLACK TANK never fully drains PITA. you can rinse all day.

If I where to do it again ..... I would NOT ...... I'd look at a Artic Fox (TC TT 5th) ... true Canadian 4 seasons, built in Canada, build here own frames.

As you can see by the answers so far, responses are from one end of the spectrum to the other. Which, IMHO, is what you will get regardless the question asked. We own a 2017 2375. We love the floor plan. The fit and finish is very good. Only problem we have had to date was having to tighten a leaking fitting. I know RV's in general are not a good investment. But I try to buy a brand or model that I believe has good resell value. That is the Lance. Also the Lance Owners of America (LOA) are a fantastic source of information and assistance if needed. I highly recommend a Lance.

Lance has a very good rep as you already know. It is still independent and that's a big plus. Better than average for factory support. Truck campers are better for layout and design than trailers in that Lance is relatively new to the TT market. If you like the floor plan and you are happy with the rest of the unit, it would serve you well.

Lance would be at the top of my list but I don't like any of the floor plans.

Initially we were looking for a smaller trailer and found a new 2017 Lance 1575. The size was right. The build quality looked to be good. The interior walls and cabinets were very solid. I liked the trailer but I wasn't convinced the $41,000 price tag was justified for a trailer that size. It was nice but not that nice. Perhaps I should have gone back and had a second look but didn't.

US dollars vs. Canadian dollars would be why.
