Then they better have someone follow my posts because I intend to let people know about the lousy quality of my $65K NORTHWOOD trailer and the lies they told me every chance I get.

Which would also be the main reason this forum has about 15 of what could be considered "active" members.

I have to say I like the price of the Northwood TC's. Don't like the luan backing behind the fiberglass skin. Seen too many used Northwood campers delaminate. Seen a lot of Lance TC's delaminate until they switched to azdel now I don't see any with the azdel delaminated. Same with Cirrus they started out with azdel and I have not seen any delaminate as of yet.

I remember quite a while ago a member here left his Artic Fox TC out in the desert somewhere because he hit wash board and tore his jacks off then noticed how rotted/falling apart it was so he left it out there.
If I remember right it took the back end of his camper out of the truck and his jacks were torn off so he couldn't get it back in his truck anyways.

His camper is probably still sitting out there today [emoticon]

If people started giving legal advice then you could expect it to be deleted.

I get a chuckle out of every time someone makes a post and say, "get a lawyer." A few years ago I had a legal battle (it was a long story) and we had to get a lawyer. Way back then, we had to put a $2000 retainer down to even talk to him. Then the firm charged $200 and hour. Every Email received was 1/4 hour. Every email returned was 1/4 hour.

When we finally went to court, we were charged from the second our lawyer left the office to the time he returned to the office. There were multiple continuances from the opposition. Well, it took almost a year and we won. And for what it's worth, our opponent never paid us a penny. And we had shelled out over $12,000 JUST in lawyer fees.

So, everytime someone blows off the cuff "get a lawyer"... well ... I laugh my A$$ off at them!

When in doubt, refer to the first forum rule. It trumps all other rules.

When a company intentionally jerks around its customers, the customer's natural impulse is to mention getting a lawyer; the connotation in this context, for this term "lawyer", simply means trying to "get justice and fair dealing" especially against an organization which, by its actions, appears hostile.

Its pretty weak to use this as an excuse to censor someone's open complaint on a forum. Perhaps there are no complaints allowed against certain brands sponsoring this site, as has been implied here. If that is the case, it means only positive manufacturer reviews are allowed, i.e. the site is censored in favor of the sponsors. It should be pointed out that Users also provide a lot of unsolicited GOOD input on products and how they have been treated. This should be the goal of this site to get unbiased inputs from users on their experiences. There is no reason to delete a reasonable complaint against an RV industry participant.

My observation is that the people on this site also have a pretty high "BS meter" when it comes to complaints of this nature, so having someone censor a view, as long as it is presented clearly should not be grounds for it to disappear.

Well said and well written. Great job.

Do I feel a 'poof' coming?

Ok smart a$$es, here's the notify moderator that got this thread deleted.

"GeoBoy has requested that this post be reviewed:

Subject: Absolute disgust with Northwood Manufacturing
forums.goodsamclub.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29970807/gotomsg/29971099.cfm#29971099

Explanation:

OP wants the thread closed, grant him his wish."

What EXACTLY would you arm-chair moderators do with this?
