Likes: 1) light weight, mid profile, pulls easy. 2) layout. Issues: 1) Holding tank capacities not as specified 3-25s rather than 3-30s. 2) Front grey tank leak due to battery ground cable fastened through tank. This issue was never repaired leak free under warranty, after three frustrating years I repaired myself. 2) Black tank drained slowly. This issue was never repaired under warranty, after three frustrating years I repaired myself by removing the 3" cutout from the tank. 3) Shower leak - repaired with silicone by dealer under warranty. 4) Entry door - replaced under warranty by dealer. 5) Furnace - vibrates significantly from new. Dealer states this is normal. 6) After returning from a trip in 2012 I noticed that the front fiberglass nose piece had a crack on the lower passenger side. Upon removal of the skin covering the bottom of the upper level of the fifth wheel overhang I found that a 3" wide plate welded to the trailer frame and screwed to the bottom of the trailer sidewall had broken at the welds. The fastening system was redesigned to induce less stress to the side wall fastening system and include a floating bottom to the front nose piece (originally attached to the frame) to eliminate the constant flexing of the fiberglass due to frame flex when towing.
