Went to the dealership almost 100 miles away to buy a part for my 5th wheel and left purchasing the Sightseer 35G . This is a great floor plan in my opinion tons of room in the lounge and kitchen. Usually its just two of us but recently had 9 adults sitting comfortably inside for cocktails when it began to rain outside. When it stopped we stayed inside it was so relaxing and convenient to have the kitchen and refrigerator close by. The bedroom is just the right size. It is in the back and uses only enough floor space that is needed for the time that we spend in there sleeping or doing laundry(I have the optional washer and dryer). The bath is split (shower on one side split by the hallway to the bedroom and the toilet sink on the other) I never liked this configuration before but I finally figured out that by closing the sliding doors to the bedroom and the kitchen creates one large bath and that works for me. It drives like what you would expect on the F53 chassis, but since i have completed some suspension upgrades and Wow what a difference, with these mods I would say the driving is now 4star not 3. I gave warranty support 3 stars because their dealership network in a major metro area like Chicagoland is very limited, you would think they would have better exposure in one of the closest major markets to their factory. They loose out to some of the other manufacturers that are winning here.

We have a 2007 Winnebago that we bought from Camping World. We have not been able to use it in 2 years because it seems that it cannot be repaired. We have paid thousands of dollars only to have it sit in repair shop after repair shop. I contacted Winnebago who basically blew me off and said not their problem. I called Ford who transferred me until I reach a non working number. This has to be the worst customer service I have ever dealt with. And don't even get me started on Camping World. We were td today that there is a part that had a recall on it from before we bought it that was never handled. I can't believe all these companies care about is the sale. No way to trade it and about to do a voluntary repo just to get out of it. Don't buy from Camping World and don't buy any Ford or Winnebago product. You will certainly be sorry. Rude and nasty people at all 3 places.

We had a 2008 Winnie Outlook that was as solid as they get. We were very loyal to the brand when it was time to move up. Bought a nearly new 2016 Sightseer 35G last year (original owner dumped it after 900 miles) and it's been nothing but problems! As I dug into the tons of issues it became clear that there are two types of Winnebagos. Those built before 2010 and those afterwards. Quality of construction/assembly has REALLY taken a hit. Ours has been in the shop 4 of the 11 months we've owned it. Winnebago customer service has been great and kept extending the warranty. But that doesn't excuse the fact that they use staples to install things they should have screwed and glued. Including a 4" x 1" x 4' long heavy hardwood board above the driver. Yup....stapled into cabinetry and of course eventually fell off. Could have been a real problem if it hit someone. Items like the ladder rack pulled right out of the wall because it wasn't screwed into backing. All kitchen drawers fell onto the floor while driving dumping all contents because they used weak mechanisms. Two of the three slide outs have failed. Most recently because they were installed with cheaply make screws that sheared off causing the slide to jamb. Whole slide rack assembly now needs to be replaced. Gone for another month. King pins were bad from the factory (Ford issue BUT Winnebago would have caught it IF THE WOULD HAVE ALIGNED THE UNIT before it shipped....according to a local chassis expert that would have been impossible with these king pins...therefore Winnie didn't even do that...sloppy). I can excuse vendors' products (like generators/refrigerators/whatever) that have issues in the beginning as the MH manufacturer can only a certain amount of testing before delivery. We've been through the new MH drill and a certain amount of that just happens. To me the quality of the assembly/install/parts are critically important. Even though those can be flawed I can't excuse dumb engineering design and cheap cheap parts. Or sheer laziness (king pins). That's what happened to Winnie. Very sad as the old ones were tanks. Trading this in on a different manufacturer's unit. No more Winnebago for me (sadly!).
