At the very least reading this and the countless other covid related quality issues makes me feel somewhat better putting a deposit on a good looking new to us 2017 Jayco Jay Flight RBS [emoticon]

Though most RV’s are poorly built, I hold the dealers responsible, too. Too many problems I’ve witnessed in new units could have been corrected by the dealer prior to delivery. Their PDI in many cases is nonexistent.
As stated in the article, “ we sell what we get and move on…” they should add, …”to the bank with big profits.”
RV quality is an oxymoron.
Toyota or Honda should make RV’s.

Was my $180,000 Crown bus conversion worth it 40 years ago? It all stayed working. It will be around for my grandchildren. To each his own.

$180K in 1980 equates to just under $600K in 2021.

How many folks have that kind of money sitting around to spend on a camper for a few weekend camping trips and a two week vacation per year. Heck, how many people can afford to buy a house at that cost.

Sure spending a lot of money for a quality product is "worth it". But that doesn't make it a good decision.

The issue I see is that in the past, you had: expensive and high quality; inexpensive and decent quality; and cheap and cr@ppy.

Now, you have to choose between expensive and decent quality or cr@ppy.
