It is a typical entry level RV. Light weight construction, Lippert frame, etc. Floor issues typically come from poor construction and poor maintenance. All RV will eventually leak, so you have to stay ahead of the issue and keep them sealed.

I had a Coachmen Chaparral for 13 years. Floors never were a problem. Had one piece of delamination on bedroom window.

Those qualifications would make about 99% of all RV's made today an entry level RV. Including the Grand Design Solitude we dumped because of its total lack of build quality, which is advertised thus.


"Affordable Luxury Extended Stay Vehicle

If more room is what you desire, Solitude is the most spacious Extended Stay Fifth Wheel ever built! The Solitude RV delivers taller ceilings, taller, deeper cabinets, larger scenic window areas, a full 6' 8" tall slideout, and a body width that measures a full 101 inches!

You may be looking for an extended stay unit to live in for months at a time... but you just may want to live in this one for the rest of your life!"


Not even close LOL. Not only did we not want to live in it for the rest of our life, we did not want to camp another season in the piece of junk and were fed up with the constant issues most of which were more than small easily fixed items.
