The public has largely, and appropriately, lost faith in the quality of mass-produced RV’s. It will take a concerted effort on the part of this industry to restore faith. Companies like Pleasure-way, Coach House and Lazy Daze, all with a reputation for quality, seem to be doing just fine with folks waiting many months for delivery.
