TT 9 month old needs new roof.

has anyone delt with a lemon travel trailer? I think I have one I need advice on how to proceed? Purchased new shadow cruiser January 2014. On first outing we went back to the dealer with 21 issues. These issues were mostly small, leaking plumbing, furnace not working, loose side skirting, no support under the tub, wrinkles on the roof. Dealer fixed most items, others he stated were none issues. Fast forward,today trailer is back to the dealer this time I was told the roof needs to be replaced. This time it will be in the shop for 3 to 4 weeks. Can I get my money back?

Get a lawyer, like a doctor, they will work for you until you run out of money. Good luck.

Doesn't sound that bad compared to some stories on here. Once again points to the lack of quality control and inspection at the factory. That's why I buy used. I let the first owner iron out all the bugs and eat the depreciation on the new price.

Granted most issues should have been fixed at walk through or before but at least most got fixed. Now you are getting a new roof. Since all has been covered and has not cost you anything you should be good. If it was all happening just outside a year, then ... But luckily everything is being fixed. Take a deep breath and enjoy once you get it back.

I have a feeling that may not happen. It sounds like a poor quality trailer, and the problems are likely to continue.

Two ways to look at it. Maybe this is the last issue. Or it will keep having issues. Unless you got an extended warranty then you only have 3 months left for warranty work. Since you probably won't be using it all that much after you get it back then next years issues will be on your wallet. If you keep having issues after the new roof then I'd trade it in on a different one. There's always the possibility that you'll have issues with the new one too, but pretty slim that you'll need the roof replaced. I would try and get into a higher quality trailer next time.

yes it seems sad that you get the feeling the they hope your the type of guy that the 1 offs

like get a cool jet ski but never have time to take it out or say you dont take care of it right

or a 4wheeler

some do the some with low cost TT get it and may only take it out 4 times a year and so they hope time runs out for any Wwork before you ever put any time on the unit for any thing to show up
