On the road...again

We are a retired couple who live most of the year in the Dominican Republic and just recently purchased a Dynamax Isata3. The plan now is to spend 3 months a couple of times a year back in the States exploring and the other 6 months at our home here in the DR.

We are coming back to RVing after 20 years and are looking forward to the experience.

I think I am glad I found this site.

Currently ii is a love/hate relationship with our new Isata 3. We love the feel of the coach, the roominess, how it drives, finish work, and looks.We looked at multiple coaches before deciding to but this one.It is now 8 weeks old and we have been in it for 5 of those weeks.


However servicing the coach is turning into a major headache. We have developed a problem with the water in that it has sprung a major leak. We are on the road and about 2,000 miles from where we bought it.When we called local dealers to get service the answer was “sorry you did not buy it here so maybe we can fit you in for service in a month or two”, and they want to charge for their time (minimum of $289) even though it is warranty work.We called Dynasty directly and they said this is not right and they would call the local dealer.Well his response was “too bad this is the way we do it” So we found another dealer who agreed to “squeeze us in” and had the coach for the morning, claiming all was fixed.That night at camp the leak was worse than ever.So we are camped for the weekend and will bring it back on Monday.


Overall we love the coach, now if we can just have some water as dry camping is not fun

momdoc-Thanks for the reply, obtaining service from a dealer other than the one who sold the vehicle seems to be a universal problem in the RV world. Sounds like you're happy with the Isata3 overall though, that's encouraging. Did you buy the single slide out or the double?

The water leak is fixed but now we have to get a new valve and some cabinet work done. Parts are ordered and we will return to this dealer who was happy to hlep us in a coupe of weeks to get the job finished.


We bought the full side slide out and it really makes a small coach feel quite large with a full open concept.

Sounds like things are looking up. Hope these are just shake-down issues.

I am sure it is just "shake down" issues, though the water leak was major. We did talk to Dynamax directly and parts were ordered and shipped overnight. We will get the work completed on Friday and then we are off to enjoy the coach.
