we also had the same problems, floor torn under refrig, had repaired, torn again, seals around slides torn, fireplace had to be replaced, slide in bedroom failed on a trip. battery dies after towing for 5 hours, screws on exterior lower panel constantly come loose, no supports for these panels, so they keep flopping when going down the road, slides are constantly out of adjustment having gaps either high or low, blew 2 tires, found out they were old stock.ceiling light covers were not put on properly,they keep falling, holes through panels cut very rough, and were never cleaned at the factory, sawdust keeps appearing after every trip, cable tv hookups were all messed up, no reception for stereos inside or outside, had antennas installed but did not help, they are both useless. TV's are unknown brands. 1/2 trim that goes on outside inserted into metal strips are 6 - 8 inches short showing screws behind them. Under belly material was dropping with no supports from side to side, and attached without washers, so material tore, and had to replaced, this now looks like a mess underneath, as this is put on when the frame is upside down at the factory. And the list goes on and on.

Purchased 2015 model number 3551 in October 2014. Not much the lot going into building this to be user-friendly. The leveling system is mounted inside the basement area. Should be mounted on the exterior of the RV gelcoat coming off front and rear sections. They only allow $3200 to make repairs. My closest estimate is just over $5000. I will be putting over $2000 out of my pocket to make a repair that never should've happened. Bottom line they were better products out there . I would not recommend this to her friend to buy.The best I will give it his 2 1/2 stars

We bought this to live in full time, as we travel full time for work. Most expensive mistake I've ever made. Within weeks,the living room slide began leaking. A few months later, the hydraulic lines that operate the two main slides blew, spilling hydraulic fluid all inside the underbelly. Outer door seals leak, so the storage compartment gets filled with water every time it rains. There are also several minor issues that I'd be willing to overlook if it wasn't for the major issues. As other have noted, the workmanship on these units is horrible. Doors poorly hung, slides not always sitting correctly. We have to pull the two main slides in a few inches every time it rains to prevent water from seeping in. This has to be the worst 5th wheel on the market.
