We have a 2009 XLR 3712SA, bought new 11/08. Had a few MINOR fit and finish, and I do stress MINOR,(I'm picky), which were taken care of quickly by the local dealer, even though we did not buy it from them. No other issues to report, everything works as intended, and the comments we get from others (good) tell us that we made a good choice in picking the XLR.
We are very happy with the unit. Bought it from All Seasons RV in Muskegon MI, and use Lazy Days RV in Tampa for service.

We've got a 2012 300X10. Haven't had a chance to use it yet because we bought it before it was through the re-design phase and so didn't take delivery until Fall and it was after my last trip of the seaon.
Issues...nothing big yet but the sound system isn't the best. If you're an audiophile, I suggest you see what options you have. I also dont much care for the radio in the garage (which powers the external speakers on ours). Its a cheezy little thing IMHO but it plays music. Also, if you have an iPod, you must connect via Aux cables.
We got the arctic package, but the drain lines are exposed under the trailer. There are some small heat wraps on them near the valves, that I just noticed over the weekend, but I can't imagine how a thawed, perhaps, 4" of pipe is going to help when the rest of it is frozen.
Someone mis-mounted the door closer for the door to the living room. It will open too far and the mount at the top will strike the side of the trailer. I think the dealer messed this up but they won't admit to it and I have no way of know if it was shipped with the closers on or not. Another one that came in soon after mine didn't have closers on it, hence my assumption of dealer mistake.
I wish they'd engineer the one we bought to have more carrying capacity, but that would make them cost more...and weigh more. I originally wanted a much smaller trailer than we bought. If you ride quads, I think you'd need more cargo capacity...we ride dirt bikes so should work ok.
We got the deep kitchen sink and that eliminated the top kitchen drawer which we didn't realize.
I think it is a pretty trailer and I like that you can move around in it with the slides in. I also like the ratio of fresh water to holding tanks. Ours holds 100 gal fresh, black is 32, grey is 64 (via 2 32 gal tanks). We also liked the sliding glass doors between the living area and garage because you could have some friends back there and see them and not feel so separated. We also liked the pull down screen door at the ramp. Seems much better than velcro in stuff but the screen is loose in the slides so it isn't sealed like a screen door on your house. Still...I think it will be ok.
Something else we really liked is where they have the living room tv. It is over the entrance door vs so many other have it at the end of the room so you essentially have to look sideways to see it. This one is pretty much facing you.
My biggest complaint is the lack of storage space. I bought this unit online sight unseen and looking for that feature didn't occur to me. We moved up from a Weekend Warrior which had tons of storage space. Overall, we are very happy with the unit and floorplan. I find the quality high and the fit and finish good. The factory tires were D rated and junk so we swapped them out with E rated.
Have a 2012 40X12 with the AMP IT UP Package and love it!! Layout is great and the 2nd bathroom comes in very handy. Very happy with fit & finish and what minor issues we've had have been addressed by dealer ( CCRV in Corpus Christi, TX. ) with no hassle's at all. 2 thumbs up!!

I have an 11 XLR 35x10. Very happy so far. Bought it last spring so we camped in it all last year. There have been a few minor issues that I fixed myself. The tail light wiring was crushed at the back of the trailer so my lights quit working. Rewired that. The kitchen slide was hesitant to slide in on its own without human intervention. Turns out the electric motor was starved for power due to some chintzy wiring at the slide switch. I rewired that- added a relay- problem fixed.
I like the floor plan a lot. Wish it had a King bed.
A friend of mine just bought the new Voltage. That thing is pretty sweet.
