2020 Eagle 319 MLOK here. We have been out an average of 5 days per month
since delivery Dec 26th of 2020. Only issue we had was the pendant lights went bonkers but I fixed that with BmPro C/S. The ground wire had disconnected from the bus...easy fix. Everything has been great until this last trip. Floor started squeaking as you walk into trailer. The EZ Breeze bathroom fan took a dump and my curbside slide is sticking. Shes at the dealers now getting fixed. We were in the desert this last trip and the dry air may be a contributor to the squeaky floor. I could live with the floor but the vent fan and slide not so much. Still feel the quality is good overall. The slideout mechanism is Schwintek and the fan is made by Dometic.

2016 Starcraft bought new, stabilizer jacks were rusted, broke one the first trip. Replaced all 4 and made the dealer reimburse me. Was not about to take it in and have it tied up for months.

Not impressed with Jayco's quality.
during PDI
1 Entry door fit was horrible, hard to open and close, yet flaps like a bird going
down the road
2 all baggage doors out of adjustment, they flap as bad as the entry door
3 driver and passenger steps into cab loose and rattle going down the road
4 stabilizer jacks wont stay up
5 paint has swirl marks (dealer states it because the paint is black)
6 flooring inside is coming unglued in the whole coach, sounds like you are
walking thru sticky crap on the floor
7 Cab over blind ripped and coming out of the frame work
8 sound stream stereo wont shut off 95% of the time
9 fridge door lock screws were stripped, that broke on the way home from
10 shower door wasn't in tracks, wouldn't stay in tracks once fixed
11 water connections leaked, not even hand tight
12 kitchen faucet not tight in counter top
13 adhesive from mirror in bathroom cabinet leaked out and door was glued
14 Bedroom was is literally coming apart, staples are working their way out
and wall is separating
15 trim above door, starts at one cabinet runs across over the door, but stops
4 inches from the other cabinet. hey but at least they put a decorative
end on it
Jayco doesn't get all the blame for this, dealer did not want to fix it, until they could do it under warranty? so now its my problem to get it fixed and have it sit at the dealer. oh they had it for a month, fixed 2 things; shower door and glued the cover back down on the lighting panel. Jayco supposedly never sent them the parts for the other repairs

"Man-traps" - Protruding screws or sharp edges waiting to dig into an arm.
Squeaky slides, 'popping' floors, rubbing vent fan and lack of any sort of wiring diagram are minor nuisances. The burned through hole in the empty generator compartment sheet metal from an unrestrained and un-insulated hot battery cable, and faulty propane valve were more serious threats.
The auto-level/landing gear failure was a serious source of frustration and a furnace that has NEVER worked and has kept the camper un-available for my use nearly half the year I've owned it.
This is my first camper since the 1980's but looking around here and the internet, it seems that this total lack of any quality control may be RV industry standard, at least within the Thor product lines.

2020 Precept 29V: a) Norcold fridge did not work from day one. b) Retractable steps only go up halfway after owning for one month. c) Prop rod for King bed is a joke, will not hold the weight and bent immediately. I installed gas lift shocks on both sides, now it's a breeze to open and stay open, even with full bedding. IMO this should be a standard part of the coach. d) Engine compartment under insulated (if any), which makes the cockpit noisy and the console hot.
These were the annoyances I've noticed. Waiting for parts to repair the fridge (cooling unit) and the steps. Purchased October 2019 and can't take it for any significant trips until repairs are made. Hoping the parts come in quickly and this gets resolved.
Otherwise, it's a nice rig for a little over $100K.

This really is a big to do about nothing. Polls on RV quality are a dime dozen and prove nothing. The industry has issues, has always had issues, and nothing has changed in the last 10-20 years. So these polls and the related complaints on all of the various RV Web sights do nothing to improve the problem. It probably makes a few owners feel better but that is about it. I have owned four different RVs and the complaints have been the same with each.

There are a number of very good books out about RV quality. If you search Randall Eaton and purchase his books before buying an RV you get an idea of what you are getting in to. If you don't do your research, you end up putting polls on some Web site because you failed to do your due diligence and are now dissatisfied.
