As you can see the door is open to the plumbing. All motorhomes are built like chit. This one is no exception. Constantly fixing things on it. Just about the time you think you have everything bullet proofed, bam, something else chit's the bed.

Truer words have never been spoken. But what do you do? My uncle dropped the big M on one years ago and it was the same. It pissed him off so much he sold it a year later and took a massive hit.

Ive found with RV's its a get-what-you-pay-for kinda thing. I had an RV before i even had my own house/apartment. I was living with my parents in my early 20's and bought one to go racing/riding. Love RV's.

On my 3rd now, and since i went the MD truck based route (Freighliner M2) im very happy. Quality on my Dynamax is pretty good, but still...i can see where it could be better, but then they would have to charge 100K more.

We had a discussion on the dynamax forum about things like this. And even the MFG said themself, "yes we could make X Y and Z way higher quality, but then the price would go up 100K and no one would want to pay for it".

Personally ill never go away from a Truck based unit ever. Never, EVER, overheats, i can tow 20K, etc. Same with the all-electric and diesel fired heat. No dealing with propane issues.

The Class A's are just plywood and drywall screws with fiberglass over them to look pretty. Now, if your living in it for 6 months at a time in a location, then those would work better. But for most of us driving and towing all the time, cant beat a truck based unit.

My next unit will be full HD truck, Freightliner Cascadia based or similar.

Cheap junk and expensive junk.

I always get the price way down on the extended warranty. It’s always paid for itself.

Warranties aren’t always honored by so called other dealers that sell the same line and the same warranty.
Its the “ya didn’t buy it here attitude.”

My dealer is two tanks of fuel away to drop it off and pick it up so often I do my own fixes if it’s cheaper than that.
