We bought our 378FB in September 2016. Before it could ever be delivered it was kept two extra weeks for a rear panel delamination issue. We pleaded for a new unit since that's what we bought but were assured it would be perfect when we got it. HUGE mistake. The day...

The more I read owner reviews of RVs and Travel Trailers the more convinced I become that I want nothing to do with either a new unit or the mega dealers that sell them.
