I am throwing our hat in the ring for serious water leak issues. There were no indications of water leaking as it occurred under the flooring, but our sub floor under the toilet and shower are rotted. This must have been occurring over time when we bought the trailer and wasn't evident until now when I almost fell through the floor this spring when starting to de-winterize. The water damage extended all the way from the bathroom at the back of the trailer to beyond the dinette near the door. Insurance won't cover anything, so now we have a giant piece of junk in our driveway that we are still paying for. It will cost us thousands of dollars to fix the issues and reinstall everything.

DO NOT BUY VENTURE RV PRODUCTS!!! Brand new RV and TOTAL GARBAGE!! I've owned my 2022 for less than a year and the roof has separated at the corner and caused extensive water damage. Potentially a total loss and I still have it financed. Venture won't return my calls and dealership is saying it's a bad seal and they are only warranty covered for 90 days. Insurance says it's wear and tear. I am now out 39,000, have no rv, and need to find an open space to set it on fire!! I've owned a trailer or motor home for 25 years and have never seen such poor construction with such a hefty pricetag!!

After living in the trailer for a year, I've found so many flaws and outright construction mistakes that I could watch it burn and have no regrets. The front axle bent somehow I can't run the water heater on propane because it sets off the carbon monoxide detector. Solved by switching to propane. The glass cover for the stove shattered between sites. Not being able to find a replacement, I waited to be in a site I knew I'd be in for a while and ordered one, doing the replacement myself. The latest is the slideout. Operation is come and go. It drags the floor, snaps and makes loud bangs. Again, I'll have to wait till I'm in a place I intend to be for a while and get someone to repair it. Had I known how cheaply this trailer was built, I wouldn't have bought it.

Besides the expected flaws caused by overly rushed factory workers fighting the clock, I have found that the trailer was built to a standard that, had I known before I bought it, would have changed my mind. I found that, if I used propane to heat the water and the wind blew too hard, the carbon monoxide alarm would go off. I resolved the problem by switching the heater to electrical. In doing this, I've accepted the fact that I won't be able to " boondock", or stay overnight without being hooked up to shore power. I had to install a light beneath the bed because it was so dark in there. The tempered glass cover for the stove shattered while I was moving from one site to the next. Not being able to find a Venture dealer within 100 miles, I ordered one and installed it myself. The latest and greatest was when the awning quit working. It was fully extended and, after a call to the dealership I bought it from, I was able to use a battery drill to roll it up. I haven't been able to use it for at least a month, so I ordered a new switch and motor from a dealer near my site, where I had to stay extra time in order for them to get the parts. I got the parts and installed them, only to find the awning would not work. I'm now frustrated. Here's the cause of my frustration: In the fuse panel, to the right of each fuse, is a red light that only lights when the fuse is either blown or withdrawn. The light beside the fuse for the awning does not light, leading me to believe there is no power to that fuse. I'm at my wits' end now and don't know what else to try.
