Winnebago Vista 30T Rust Issue

Purchased a new 2015 Winnebago Vista 30T, our first motorhome. After 2 months I happened to look underneath and noticed EXCESSIVE rust & rot on angle iron supporting all storage bins. Bought in CT, stored in FL and never saw a winter on the road! Anyone else have this problem? Any thoughts are appreciated.

I can't help you, however there is a forum at the top of the page that will direct you to Winnebago owners. You'll probably find others with the same problem in there.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!

Sorry on your rust issue. I'm sure you could treat it then paint. It would be far better than the factory. wwweastwood.com has all sorts of treatments for rust. Good luck, safe travels.
