Really like my Sporttrek BUT there are a few issues. 1st off, the vinyl on the backs of the sofa cushions just deteriorated. This unit has never been kept outside (ALWAYS kept inside except when camping which has never been more than two weeks a year). #2 I have tried to reach customer service via phone or via email SEVERAL times through the years with various concerns or question and NOT once have they ever responded. Their COSTUMER SUPPORT SUCKS. As much as I like their TT, I would NEVER recommend this brand to anyone. Getting ready to sell and get a class C but it will NOT be VENTURE.

We bought this new in 221. We have used it for 2 trips of at least 30 days, 2 trips of at least 10 days, then several weekend trips. So we’ve traveled quite a bit. Pros: this had the layout we were looking for. In that area we are pleased. Electric heater does a great job, so we rarely have to use propane. We also like the comfy lounge chairs that have heaters. Cons: most are quality and design problems. Cabinet door above TV fell off during first week of travel. Undersized hardware was used, and repairs made after our return. Another quality issue was use of machine screws to hold metal skirt on outside of trailer. Several failed, so I replaced with nuts and bolts, which should have been used in the first place. Cabinet door to left of slide doesn’t stay closed, so we have to be careful when moving slide in or out. AC was temperamental at first, but has come around. We have been pleased with our Stratus. That being said, we would buy a better known and higher quality RV if we had to do this again. We’ve put about 15,000 miles on it and have had no major problems.

Here is an incomplete list of the problems I have had. I purchased this terrible rig at Leos Vacation Center in Gambrills, Maryland. Just about everything that could fail has failed on this unit. The manufacturer has paid Leos to repair things that they just fixed poorly or not at all. It has been a nightmare. The manufacturer installed a TPO roof with PVC adhesive. When the roof heated up in the sun a reaction occurred and the TPO disintegrated. The roof material was replaced on the rig by Leos, but they refused to replace the bump out roof claiming it was installed with the proper adhesive. Leos messed up the replacement roof by cutting the material too short, now the roof is releasing from underneath the gutters and exposing the roof wood. The awning lights failed. Leo replaced them but soon afterwards they failed again. Leos then claimed they were not out, yet they were. I replaced the LED strip myself at my cost. The recliner lighting shorted out. Leos claimed to fix them but did not, I repaired them myself. The wall storage box was installed incorrectly from manufacturer. Leos did repair this properly. The kitchen table mounts broke. Leos replaced the garbage plastic mounts with metal mounts correctly. The ceiling skylights were cracked during the roof replacement. Leos replaced them but then broke the bezels that I had to replace myself. The City water inlet cracked and leaked inside the coach. Leos repaired it properly. The manufacturer installed the ceiling in the bedroom incorrectly and it started to de-laminate. I fixed it after Leos messed up the repair. The awning on the rig catastrophically collapsed. The manufacturer paid Leos to repair it, but one side still is loose, so another repair failure. The gray and black tank sensors are erratic, the manufacturer refused to repair them. The manufacturer took an over counter sink, drilled holes in it and mounted it under the counter-top with clips and screws. They did not seal the laminated kitchen counter however. Leos attempted to seal it, but did it incorrectly causing water damage to the particle board substrate. The manufacturer placed the shower frame rivets incorrectly and some broke. Leos messed up the repair and I had to do it myself at my cost. The slide out somehow loosened and racked. Leos fixed the racking but did not repair the seal correctly, I took care of it at my cost. The dinette LED shorted out. Leos claimed to fix it and charged me for the repair, however they did not fix it and I had to fix it myself so I paid twice for a repair I did myself. There were several more issues with manufacture defects that Leos claimed to repair, but never did, I am just tired of typing. This KZ Venture Stratus SR261VRK is a complete lemon and I will never do business with KZ/Venture nor any other Thor subsidiaries. This ban also extends to Leos, their service is awful in my opinion. Now that I have personally repaired almost all the manufacture defects, maybe this coach can finally be "recreational".

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.

Typical outing is 4 adults and 3 kids. With that said, the king U feature made this camper unlike any other that we have had, especially on a rainy day when we are stuck inside. Great layout. Minor issues with hinges coming loose but easily fixed by replacing with larger screws. Only real complaint is the decals are already peeling off. If your doing your do diligence you can advert any real issue like leaks. Owning a camper means you have to always prepare for the unexpected so that when something does go wrong its just a temporary set back. Smile, relax and enjoy.

My major complaint is the toilet is too close to the vanity in the bathroom. Crawling over your mate to go to the bathroom while sleeping is inconvenient as well. Only reason i gave Warranty/support a 3 was I never needed any support and I bought it used. My sixth camper overall.
