Just to be clear it was only on certain units. If your looking at a build date close to that time frame you can call Lance as they should have the list of VIN that were affected.
I thought the front cap issues were pre-front window era?

Not that I am aware of. But it is Luan that they use for a substrate that is laying over the structure on the front only. Itís not a laminated wall for obvious reasons. Thatís why they tried a different product, with not good results. But they now and always have used Luan, on that front curve. So itís quite possible without proper maintenance you could have issues.

IMHO the Ford F-150 was underpowered until 2011 when they introduced the powerful 5.0 litre Coyote engine and the very powerful 3.5 Eco-Boost.

Pre 2011 I would limit towing 5,000lbs.

So I'm going to weigh in on this, which I don't do often. I have two family members that work for a Lance dealer, hence I've had a lot of chances to see them up close and personal. I've seen under all that pretty stuff while in for warranty repairs and they are made no better than your $25K trailer imo and have all the same problems, in a disproportionate ratio imo. I could have had one for, well just say a hell of a deal. I just bought a 2020 Northwood Nash 23D.

Not saying Lance doesnít have issues, especially on newly designed floor plans.

But I can easily debate the higher grade materials, and methods used in a Lance versus a Nash, or Northwood. They both have their pluses, and minuses.

But you donít need to take my word, just look at their longevity, and resale value.
Ours is now three years old, and no issues, and it still looks new, nothing has loosened up, and everything still fits and lines up perfectly. We plan on keeping it until our camping days are over.

Even a Lexus can have lots of issues at the first 5k miles, but how does it hold up for the next 200k.
