I bought a new Aspect from a dealership in Davenport, Iowa in 2016.
I could not get warranty work done properly there.
I drove 180 miles to Forest City, Iowa to get the air conditioner and a cabinet face fixed under Winnebago warranty. I was told they were booked up for 5 weeks. They wouldnít come out and look at it to order the cabinet face so it could be built, and be there when I came back.
I was told that I couldnít leave it there either. I ended up fixing the wiring problem on the air myself. I sent the parts department pictures of the panel to be made. They ordered the wrong part twice. I had to disassemble the cabinets myself to give them the part numbers on the back. The third time was the right part. I repaired that myself.
When we first took our Aspect to Lichstinn RV, we were so frustrated that we picked out a new one. We were offered $60,000 for an RV we had bought for $100,000 less than a year before. I did not have a positive experience with this dealership. If you buy an RV, you should have tools and be mechanically inclined.
We still have our Aspect and I think Iíve goods the bugs out of it.
I donít think I would ever buy a new one again.
I spent more time with it in the shop that first year than any camping trips. You will have a lot of warranty work, so buy it close to where you live.
