Hey guys,
I'm seriously considering the K-Z Venom. Does anyone have one or have a K-Z product? What are your thoughts? Problems? Warnings? Quality? Any help would be much appreciated!

Anything specific your looking for an answer for? I’ve changed some things on mine here and there. Mostly it’s the dealing with the dealership that makes the warranty work or not when problems pop up.
My first toy hauler. Came out of a four seasons camper to this. Some things are lower quality. Some I would like them to change at the factory. And a couple I have talked to the designer about and he has changed on new units. KZ has sent me a couple warranty replacement items instead of me going to dealer to install something I know more about than they do. Or things so simple a trip to the dealership would be a costly waste when weighed against the item.

Our KZ is a bunkhouse, not a toy hauler and we have not had a warranty issue other than the LED lights in the awning and we have used it for three full seasons. We also have a great dealer here in Illinois.

We've had a 2018 Sportsman Sportster 311TH10 for several months and love it. There have been a few very minor issues but they were taken care of quickly. A slightly loose hose clamp and one breaker that didn't hold. I've been impressed with the quality of the unit, and the great customer service at our dealer, Braun's Fun Time Campers in Indianapolis.
That said, in a mass production unit like this the materials used are not the highest quality, but sufficient for the purpose.

Our KZ Inferno 3712T has served us well. We've had minor and major warranty work but as said, that's up to the dealer to get the work done...

I have a KZ Montego bay that has been great. I'm going to a toy hauler fifth wheel this fall and will likely go with the KZ Venom. The V4012TK is a perfect floor plan for us and its the only toy hauler I have found that has an all aluminum box. Others I have looked at in that price range has wood roof rafters and some have wood floor joists as well.
