Any consumer complaints with Fleetwood Class C?

Maybe I am picky, but the quality seems shoddy. Poorly caulked, seams and gaps, fuzzy cable etc.

We have a 2012 Fleetwood Tioga Ranger. It has more storage than I would have expected (a lot) and many high end features. electric awning, dual pane windows, big TV system, full oven, three stage battery charger.
The cabinets etc are not real wood but look nice.
The exterior seems to be well built. We have driven it 8000 miles and are in Alaska for the summer. We so far have had no problems with anything, so that says something. I have been impressed. This is our third coach, after trading down from a 40' DP

My old 27 footer was built like a TANK of course it wasn't a C class or new either. Just a Fleetwood Soutwind.

I have a 2012 Fleetwood Jamboree Sport 31M. I have had no major problems, however many little items I think could make this a better coach. I think many problems were done at the factory. Just poor attention to detail. Shower doors and walls poorly sealed and leaked. Cured that with clear silicone caulk. Many interior panels loose from just being stapled. Cured that with wood glue and screws. Screws and shavings left everywhere including on top of the motor. Cables and wires hanging down loose under dash, under coach and under stove. Cured that with plastic ties, tape, and cable clamps. Coax cable to rear tv causes fuzzy channels. Cured that by adding splitter at cable entrance and running coax directly to rear tv. Just examples of some of the things I have found, nothing major or expensive, but this is a brand new coach.
