Add to this that the people that are designing these Rv's have never set foot in them let alone used them. The designs speak to this in ability to use the layouts. As long as the consumers continue to buy these substandard units, the RV industry will not address the problems. I have an '07 Alpha, and will refurbish this unit before I would ever consider buyng a new piece of JUNK that the RV industry is putting out there.
