No Problems Here

Have been reading threads and in general, "lurking" for a couple months here. Seems like a LOT of people here have problems with their TT. I recently purchased a new Creekside unit and have had NO problems. Bought it in Mesa AZ and hauled it home (440 miles) then our first camping trip was 820 miles round trip. Have only changed a bulb and tightened screws to medicine cabinet. It's just great. I highly recommend Robert Crist RV.
This is only my second TT in 20 yrs. Just sold the Jayco 220BH. Had a 15 yr old Pace Arrow class A for use with my business many years ago. If you want a whole new class of trouble, buy an older motor home.
So far, I've been lucky. There were times with my old unit that all I did was work on it, but that comes with the "territory". You need to be a tinkerer, or at least somewhat capable with tools. It's NOT that hard to repair most things. Going to install fans and a bigger solar system for boondocking later in the year. Good luck to all and remember that it's not rocket science, it's a TT.

We have owned RVs for more than 35 years and some had more problems, others less but if you use it all RVs do at times need something done. It is pretty normal an to be expected. Most do not have constant problems but you will be unusual if you don't have some eventually. Much of how good or bad an RV is comes from the attitude of the owners.

This is a forum so you will usually only hear the bad to begin with.

I agree with Kirk; it's the attitude toward needed repairs and the persons demeanor that effects most of the reviews.

Yeah, new TT this year and only minor fixes for me. Wood that holds our dining table top when you make into a bed, was stapled, couldn't support two adults. A couple of screws and gorilla glue it's fixed. Similar with one cabinet door, same fix. My wife though the entire trailer was falling apart. I explained these are the same fixes you would have to do to a new house. People need to have reasonably expectations, and not sweat the minor stuff. I'm curious to how many people would have taken a 3 month old unit back to the dealer for what I fixed for 5 bucks, and probably a beers worth of time.

Congrats on the new trailer. I like tinkering and in my mind, I'm making it better. Like some else said "don't sweat the small stuff".

These trailers, like us, are a work in progress kind of thing. If you're not just a little bit handy with tools, a TT just might not be the way to go for you. They should and could be built better, but their not. But it beats sleeping in the back of my '70 Bronco. Good times.
