2003 National RV Islander

Does anyone own a 2003 National RV Islander that might want to divulge information concerning how it has been for them. I found one that I will look at when I get back to the U.S. was hoping for some information to ask about it. How it handles, any major issues with it, any spots prone to leak more than others, anything that may be of help when I go and talk to them. Thanks for any help you may aid in this.

03 Islander

Hi Sarge,

First, thank you for your service!

The Islander was built on the same chassis as the Country Coach. Very heavy duty chassis. The Islander is a solid coach.

Islander was built by National RV which had one of the better reputations for quality in the industry. Bad economy and poor management brought them down. They were also hurt really bad by one of their vendors who supplied faulty side wall material. Vendor went bankrupt and National stood by their owners spending millions to repair the affected coaches.

When you get home and possibly buy this coach, look into joining FMCA and the local National RV Owners club in your area.

Stay safe!
