Did you buy RVs with your lottery winnings?

Are we just lucky?

Our last 6 bought new or ordered RV's since 1989 have not had any warranty work done or needed and have never been back to the dealer for repairs needed and I'm a fussy person about things being right. Of course, we do not buy entry level or the cheaply built RV's either and we feel we have a right to expect decent quality and build. Our thinking has always been buy cheap/junk, get cheap/junk! The wise man object is also not to just be throwing money at any purchase unwisely and thinking it always buys perfection. Doing your homework in depth and know always before you sign on the dotted line!

NO, we do not feel lucky at all as that is what we expected and experienced! Yes, we do go over each new RV purchase with a fine tooth comb as we should before accepting delivery. The worst we had found in our inspections was a couple loose screws and one had a stripped screw which was replaced with a longer screw, shavings and sawdust not being cleaned up especially in the storage areas, and dirt on the floors or carpet that had to be cleaned up before accepting. Nothing big or defacing or not functioning or needing replacing. All were taken care of before taking possession and leaving the dealership.

Our dealers have been excellent but according to some on this forum all dealers and their employees are incompetent crooks and worthless. We sure haven't found that! We know that we are not perfect and admit it and cannot expect others and dealers/employees to be perfect either but do expect them to correct their mistakes or errors just like we require of ourselves also. The world is NOT perfect and the final results are up to you!

Always bought new and were/are Allegro, Lance, and Carriage RV's and have always had 2-4 RV's owned and being used at anytime during that time frame period. Still have the bought new 1993 Carriage Carri-Lite 5th wheel and the 1997 Lance truck camper and neither has ever been back to the dealer yet nor need to. Proper and diligent maintenance as always is so important.


A superb CC LB 4X4, GM HD Diesel, airbags, Rancho's, lots more

Why have multiples of RV's? No one type of RV does all we want it to do or meets our needs, desires, and wants just like no one vehicle or foods or clothing items etc is the best for all needs or uses. Simple as that!

Depends. So there was absolutely nothing to be fixed? Or did you just do the small repairs. Some people just don't want to or have the skills. I have not taken mine in for repairs but did my share of fixes that very well should have been corrected under warranty.
