So far this travel trailer is very comfortable for my wife, tea cup Yorkie and myself ! The fireplace is a must. Travel trailers have come a long way. The style inside and outside fits us, very stylish! Quality seems to be top notch but is still new

This thing has been a “hanger queen”! Too many problems to write about. Currently dealing with in all probability a power converter gone bad. If you don’t need a 10.6 cu ft fridge, buy some other brand. Our dealer nearby no longer buys Hemispheres due to incredibly poor quality control at the plant that assembled them. You need to be a licensed mechanic to own a Hemisphere. What can go wrong DOES go wrong. About 25 things needed repairs in first year including A/C, water heater, and plumbing. First six months of second year six things so far. 4 months still remaining.

Extremely poor workmanship and zero quality control. That’s why the dearly near us no longer carries the Hemisphere line. They’re all made at one plant. Obviously the plant and how it runs is horrible. First year following problems: Bath sink cracked in 3 places. Most of the valances came off the wall. BR window no longer would open. Entry stairs fell IN during travel ruining bath door. Entry door, bath door, and BR door wouldn’t stay closed. BR door entry not square to the point door wouldn’t even close. None of the drawers would stay closed throughout. Screw in kitchen cabinet drilled right through the exterior skin of the RV. Spare tire was one turn of a screw from detaching from its mount. Overhead speakers became detached from ceiling. Drawer bottoms began to fall out since the staples missed going into the actual bottom of the drawers. City water port began leaking inside the RV. Water began running onto the floor. All 3 seals around slideout came off the vehicle. Speakers for TV mode of entertainment center have never worked. A/C fan in BR was loose and made a horrible racket. Water heater internal gizmo for electric mode went bad. Second year: We are now stranded at a campsite during a 3 day weekend due to power converter failing. At least that’s what I believe has happened. Still 6 months to go in second year. The first 6 months our Hemisphere was in the shop.
