Staples?!! Why, Staples????
Bought a 2016 X23F in late February 2016.
Had a couple issues with it this spring that the dealer fixed (bad refrigerator, a couple small tears in the roof). Factory/dealer defects and I'm not mad about them. I was treated well.
We have used the trailer a lot, as well as put some significant miles on her over this first season, a few 300-400 mile trips, many many 'local' 50+ mile weekends, a couple trips with friends were we had every sleeping quarter in use, etc.
There are so many issues with things falling apart that are STAPLED together, that should be screwed.
The end plate on the couch, stapled to the frame. Flapping loose like a flag in a hurricane at this point.
The entire front shelf / TV stand / bed support system, completely detached from the structure of the trailer, all stapled.
End cap that separated the front lower cabinet storage from the exterior storage, I have that in my garage since I found it completely detached after a road trip.
Bathroom sink under cabinet structure, all stapled together, all falling apart.
Also a cabinet door along the lower rear of the side rear bunk has completely split along the woodgrain....
Thankfully for me, this is all under warranty, but after just one season with our sticker-price $24000 hybrid (and first new camper, ever), I have to say I am less than confident in this thing surviving more than 5 years of heavy use. Anyone else have a similar experience, or did I just get a late-friday build here? Could they have not used glue with the staples, if not using screws? Basic carpentry 101 there, no???????
