Never blame someone else for the road you're on.
That's your own asphalt.

I bought a 2005 33V this year, and have been enjoying it.

Are you aware of the inspection/maintenance needs of the roof cove-sidewall joint? I did not know about that one before I bought mine, but fortunately learned about it on the forums.

Is yours a workhorse or a ford chassis?

Yes, it's a workhorse.

What's the maintenance? Can you share?

Your owner's manual will tell you to inspect caulk and sealants and such every six months all over your rig. Good advice, no doubt, as you do not want a leak, so inspect everything you can. But one joint is special on Winnie products....the joint where the fiberglass roof cove joins the side wall at the awning rail. Get up on a ladder and and check that joint very carefully, pushing on the fiberglass a bit as you go along the length of the roof. . (You might also look from above as you check all the other sealants on your roof.).

If that adhesive sealant fails, you will not get an interior leak, as the water drips into the awning rail and drains away.....The potential result of a failure of that joint is a loss of your roof! Air can get underneath the fiberglass and much of your roof could suddenly go bye-bye! And your insurance company may say it was poor maintenance, and may not wish to cover the roof loss! So, consider that joint a top priority as a Winnie owner. If and when you see any issues at that joint, people here can give you tips, diagrams, and options. No need to burden you with it all if your joint inspection is flawless.

Mine is also a WH and had a brake caliper recall and a fuel filter recall done in years past. I am not sure if 2007 had the same recalls, but do have a WH dealer run your vin to check for outstanding recalls.
