Our experience with this RV has been poor to date, 5400 miles. The primary factors are handling, defects, poor support and amount of time required to obtain action from Winnebago. And finding service facilities with openings. We still have a list of items from the delivery day that need to be addressed. The selling dealer only allows 10 items per visit. They had it over three weeks when we returned. We added front and rear sway bars, steering stabilizer, rear tract bar, Tire Minders to monitor proper tire pressures. Handling is better, excessive play in the steering is still there. The cab area A/C on this unit was recalled, we had been complaining but got a lot of push back. Finally we had another shop evacuated and recharged the system which was 1/2 pound low of Freon, (a 2.7 pound system), it helped but still inadequate. While on the maiden trip, the leveling system failed, one jack refused to stay up. No service centers were able to get the RV in, no emergency road service in southern Indiana. Once in Florida, no service center could get the RV in. We went to a RV center in Pensacola, after having it a week, they replaced the jack and the system was still messed up, one jack wouldn't stay down!!!. The kitchen sink drain line was not connected to the line or fitting under the floor, some of the drain water went into the floor more went into the compartments below. Didn't realize it for days, until it started smelling bad, ruined everything stored below, still smells poorly. Tore out the bottom of the cabinet to find the problem. Been waiting on resolution for the trip for over a month. Paid all repairs out of pocket, over $3000. Also had to get accommodations for a week and a rental car to return some of our party home, while we waited. Not even a sorry from the manufacturer, but they're pretty quick to point their problems on their venders, now our problem. Happy Retirement.

Fair amount of room. Quality seems ok. Not leather but vinyl covered furniture. Good for dogs and kids. Easy to take care of. Floor plan is real good for a 32ft coach. Driving this coach is really easy. I installed “Roadmaster” sway bars front and rear. Also installed a steering stabilizer. Makes a Hugh difference. Towed my Jeep to Florida and back. No problems. Lots of power on the hills. Support by the factory was ok. They’re there if you need them.

The body and interior of this unit is a piece of thrown together junk. We've had it in the shop 4+ times and still don't have everything fixed. Overall Quality doesn't exist. Bulge in the body below the tailgate pkg, defrost covers all cracked, hood supports fell off, AC leaks water into the galley, ref in tailgate pkg doesn't cool, wall between bathroom and bedroom has gap, slide sealant sticks to rubber seal (Smears across slide), water leaks in door window, intermittent wipers don't work, leveling jacks slowly inch down when not in use, etc etc. :-( Getting a knowledgeable repair shop is another issue...long wait times, sits on their lot for weeks, and have to return it for list of items they DIDN'T repair. On a positive note, we are pleased with the engine and handling...better than what we expected.

With retirement on our radar and the goal to travel the US in an RV we started to search for our first RV and where convinced by a Winnebago dealer that the Intent 30R would be a good first purchase. What a mistake. Livability. This RV is designed for a young family. There is no place for two adults to sit and relax to watch TV. We removed the 60" Love seat and replaced it with RecPro recliners. We added a TV above the door. That made a huge difference and was well worth the $1000 cost. The OEM queen size mattress is a 6" piece of dense foam. We replaced the mattress with a 9" memory foam/foam mattress at a cost of $700. Overall Quality. Over the coarse of a year fixing quality issues we have been continually reminded by the Dealer and Winnebago that we purchased an entry level RV and should not have expected the same quality as their higher end RV's. From poor craftsmanship and assembly as well as lower quality parts we have had to fix mechanical and cosmetic issues both inside and outside of the RV. Every time we go out on the road we end up finding screws on the floor. We've fixed many of the mechanical vibrations and rattles on our own. The single A/C roof unit is not sufficient to cool the RV so in a hot climate it runs continuously. We invested $700 in a windshield UV cover. That helped somewhat. The A/C unit is very noisy and requires you to turn up the TV to a point where the combined noise of the A/C and the TV is disruptive. The brochure stated that the Black water tank had a flush out. We couldn't find one so we had to add an after market clean out to the tank. Floor plan. The RV is well laid out for it's size and single slide. The only issue was where to sit when you're parked. You can't sit at the Dinette for very long without getting a sore bottom. The seats are missing springs so the foam compresses onto plywood. The recliners were a great investment. The Driver and Passenger seats can be rotated but you can't rest your feet on the floor. Driving. We should have test driven the RV for a week prior to purchasing it. It would not stay on the road. Swaying, passing stability, semi draft...The wheel base is too short and the tires are too small. The Ford F35 chassis sits on leaf springs which causes a hash ride. We added Sumo Springs, a rear trac bar and a safety steer at a cost of $3200. It now handles much better. We are towing a 2 door wrangler. The dealer installed the Blue Ox tow bar but forgot to mention that our battery could go dead in the toad. They said we should have paid extra to add a trickle charger. The Driver seat is too high off of the floor and causes leg pain after an extended period of time on the road. Very cheap seat. Warranty support. Both the Dealer and Winnebago have been good to work with but it can take 4-6 weeks to get an appointment. This is not an RV for a retired couple based on the livability. If you are not mechanically inclined to fix things that break on the road you should not consider this RV.
