I hope Randy refocuses Winnebago's production on quality control instead of leaving it up to the consumer (buyer) and the selling dealer. I own a purchased new 2009 Journey 34Y which in my opinion is the greatest floor plan Winnebago produced. But it has spend 25% of its life in the shop with a list of issues longer than your arm and many have required multiple trips to address the same issue, some of which have yet to be resolved.
