Me, my wife and my daughter began looking at campers about 2 years before the purchase. We had dreams of by two campers and traveling together. My daughter was murdered in December of which we have still not received justice. To help us to continue this dream we all had we decided to purchase a camper in April 2021. We had isolated to a couple but after reading reviews switched to the Winnebago brand. We bought and rigged a super duty to pull this camper, 20,000.00 out of pocket plus note. Camper down payment and additional items, another $ 20,000.00 plus note. Ripped down a fence, added to my drive and built a cover, another $10,000.00. Add to that notes and insurance every month. Turns out after all this our dream has been a nightmare. The camper is very well made but the QC before delivery terrible. Without going into every aspect will give you some of the problems.
Camper was flushed but not dewinterized. Valves to heater shut and access to heater nailed shut from the inside. No access and no labels. In fact there is no real manual and not a single item labeled. I had to knock out the panel, open valves, add framework, but down and reinstall panel. Electrical problems galore, lights would flash, AC malfunction, Thermostats change and malfunction, refrigerator error and malfunction, surge protector error and on top of that the solar system also malfunctioned so electric jack would not work unless hooked to power or jumped off.
Panels popped loose on storage, under bed, and on trim. Half the usb did not work, seemed like wireless and its feeds. Main slide leaked and caused water damage, table would not lock in place either. Slides also malfunctioned which was probably due to electrical.
I did video and take pics of most of this. I brought to dealer in August and hoped for a quick resolution. They have been slow and laxadazical. Service Manager has never returned a call and rarely respond to emails. When he does he acts like he has answered your question which he never does. I have at least 20 emails since starting as I got Winnebago involved due to time. The final part to fix was shipped Tuesday but despite multiple attempts and letting them know I have a trip planned to see my son over Thanksgiving and will need my trailer or it’s replacement by that time their effort has been disappointing. As you can guess this has not been the dream we had. We have been in one trip and could only keep power for 8-10 hours before electrical problems so killed power by second day once we got up. So 7 months, over 60,000.00 out of pocket, let’s of work, and not one good camping trip.
