This was posted at our Facebook group, RV Horror Stories, a place where RVers with defective RVs that dealers and manufacturers can’t fix or refuse to fix in a timely manner explain their situations. The idea is to let dealers and manufacturers know they can’t sell defective RVs and expect those with lemons to stand by silently. If you have a defective RV, you will find a list of valuable resources by visiting here.
And now, this week’s Horror Story (slightly edited for clarity):
I bought my new trailer on 30th of March. The salesman said the parking lot was uneven which was the reason the slide slammed shut. I posted a question on another forum the same night asking if slides were supposed to shake the trailer when they closed, then the next day (31st) this happened [see photo].
I did get the slide closed. Coachmen responded to my question that it was safe to tow it back to the dealership where it’s still awaiting parts. I asked for a replacement RV but was denied, 25 days and counting. I paid cash for the RV so I think that is hurting my case and I already have the title in my name. Reservations of the first trip are canceled, can’t make plans cause don’t know when it’ll be fixed. The trailer was at my house only 24 hours before it was unusable! Thanks for letting me vent!
