Very true. I've traveled to many countries, including communist countries, and regardless of where you go, people have the same wants, needs, desires...and the Chinese are no different.

The Chinese are now producing cars that equal the ones from the USA which should not be too surprising as GM provided billions of dollars and lots of technology transfer to build auto plants in China. No different than the investments made by thousands of other US companies often with the active support of the US Chamber of Commerce and the US Commerce Department. Exporting jobs to Asia is very profitable for US companies and their senior management and owners - look at Wal-Mart which pays its Chinese factory workers less than $3 a day to work 14 hour days 7 days a week.

Chinese yachts are as well made as any boat made in the USA. They have a shipbuilding tradition that started centuries before that in the USA.

When you see low quality goods from China it is because that is what American companies like Wal-Mart and Lowe's and Harbor Freight want to sell to their customers. If people really wanted quality they would get it but at the present time the top quality Chinese production is going to Europe where it is termed "German Quality". What we get in the USA is a cut below "Japanese Quality" from the Chinese factories.

This post makes me laugh since I entertained a group of Chinese tourists in a roadside rest in Conneticut last fall!
We were on our way home from Cape Cod and I pulled into one of their rest stops to take a break.There was a group of Chinese guys there posing for pictures on an 18 Wheeler, really funny.
I pulled far away hoping they wouldn't notice but they did.
Shortly after parking one of them noticed and alerted the others, soon there was a parade headed to my coach.
Only one of them could speak fluent english and he had a lot of questions and questions coming from the others as well.I have to admit they were quite friendly and appreciative to my wife and I spending our time with them.
They had never seen anything like this(05 Southwind) and wanted to know what I did with it and how I used it. They ask if they could come in and look at the interior and were very gracious in doing so making sure they wiped their shoes real well. Lots of pictures were taken.
I explained the best I could in short order the RV lifestyle.
They all thanked us when they left and they all walked away with a better understanding of RVing.
I think that guy pictured on the bicycle/camper looks a little familiar!

Dare we hope that Chinese competition will lead to improved quality in the American RV industry? Much like the Japanese cars did much to improve the quality of American cars back in the 80's and 90"s?
A little competition is not a bad thing.

It's not the quality that is in question but the care and attention to the fit and finish that is.

That's because that is what their customers (us) want. Stop buying the cheap stuff and they'll quit selling it.
