I love this RV, the quality is great, the floor plan is exactly what I wanted. My only 2 complaints are, the bathroom is small, and there is no power outlets in the slide. I have never had an issue with this RV, after towing it from AL to MI, and from MI to GA, not a thing has gone wrong. It has a ton of cargo carrying capacity, 2063 pounds, other RVs that I looked at only had 900-1200 pounds of cargo carrying capacity, Coachmen Viking has the most cargo carrying capacity for a stick and tin RV. I highly recommend this RV to everybody.

Well the 2020 model is not any better when it comes to quality. We like the floor plan, it's easy to tow, set up and tear down. Well that's all I can say positive, the rest is negative. It started with the water heater leaking(fitting not installed properly),outdoor speakers not wired to radio, the kitchen faucet leaks. Nothing to serious, until the slide started leaking. I called RV VALUE MART of Manheim, PA which is where I bought it. I was told no problem it was still under warranty and would be fixed. RV VALUE MART could not get me in before my warranty expired, but said don't worry as long as I called before the warranty expired it would be covered. Upon picking it up I was charged for the repair, so much for not worrying it's covered. When the camper was built the inner seal on the slide was not attached. RV VALUE MART charged me $300 to do what should have been done when it was built. The repair didn't help, if I don't lean the camper towards the slide it still leaks. This could be a really nice camper if not manufactured with crap materials. Two things, never buy another coachmen rv and never deal with RV VALUE MART neither one cares about the costumers just making money.

We purchased our 2018 from Myers in fall of 2017. June 2020 discovered a soft spot in the floor. This was repaired all at our cost and the repair person felt it was a leak from the roof. We had two problems after the repair one because the water pump was not put back correctly and the other because when they replaced the floor they drilled through our water tank. Now in September 2021 the soft spot is back in the same location. Can’t even get it looked at until mid November. The original repair 14 months ago cost over $1000. Love the layout of the camper but am not looking forward to repeating last year’s nightmare. We have a Viking pop up from 1980 and never had a floor issue. Wish they made them like they used to!

First time buyer. Purchased a 2012 in 2013 from McPhails in Harriston Ontario. Being greenhorns I think they saw us coming and the trailer was already a year old and was starting to stink up their lot and they wanted to get rid of it. Gave us a good deal and a one hour tour hoping they would never see the piece of junk again. We took one camping trip with it before parking it up at our lot up north. We basically use it as a camp kitchen for cooking and eating. The propane fridge works well, no complaints there. The stereo has not worked since that first trip. We started noticing water on the floor in front of the fridge the next year. Water was leaking in through the fridge vents. Called McPhails who said vents do not leak and got no support from them. We then took the trailer to Delorme's a local dealer for inspection and winter storage. They inspected the roof, did some re-sealing on it and re-caulked the fridge vents. We sent the bill to the manufacturer who begrudgingly paid for the work. The cheque was accompanied with a rather terse letter. Next year the water on the floor was back, the awning window was leaking and so was a side window. We tried to reseal the windows, but were told they had to be removed and reinstalled properly. Over the years, it developed so many leaks we just gave up and started covering the trailer when not using it. It is now 7 years later and the floor is soft in many places. Why they would use OSB for the flooring is beyond stupid. We had to put down 1/2 inch plywood just so we can walk around in it. While it still looks new from the outside, the trailer would require extensive and expensive restoration to the floors and walls. So we will continue to use it as long as we can and keep trying to seal the leaks. Eventually, we will tow it to the scrap yard. Bottom line is these things are built light and cheap and you get what you pay for. If you are a greenhorn please do your homework first before you buy any travel trailer. I only wish we had.

What a nightmare the last 2 years have been. It all started with delivery to the wrong address with the wrong keys. Shoddy workmanship. Put together with spit and bubblegum. Every camping trip has been a problem. Water leaks, battery malfunction, non-working lights, moldings coming off, 27F weather and furnace not operating, air conditioner malfunction. Chat for furnace problem over 24 hours ago and still no further contact. I see apparently I am not the only one with problems from Meyers campers!! However, the payments keep rollin in!!

Our first and only RV purchase. The dealer must have seen us coming and thought, here's a chance to get that Viking off our lot. First trip, stereo stopped working and a exterior reflector blew off on the highway. During the second year we noticed water on the floor in front of the fridge. It appears to be a faulty design of the exterior vents for the fridge. We inspect the roof every year and even had it resealed by an RV service shop, so the roof was not the problem. The owner of that shop told us they are all built like crap and there are no brands they could recommend. We started noticing the floor at the front of the trailer getting soft. We found that the awning window on the front had been leaking, but the water was inside the walls so we never noticed it until it damaged the floor. We are now looking to gut the trailer so that we can repair the floors and walls and reseal the leaking windows. Not a great experience. Obviously, we were inexperienced and did not realize just how much maintenance these things require. As one fellow on another forum put it, "they are just pieces of crap wrapped in aluminium siding".
