I would agree. The screws at the bottom of the blinds are to high or un even. So you look at the blinds and the are on an angel on the bottom or light comes through because it does not slide down under the window. They put the screws to high. This is on at least 4 of them. We had and still have glue all over the sink drains and the bath tub drain. I have tried goo be gone and lots of other stuff. Nothing worked. There were a few others things that we fixed on our own, but you can tell it was done in a rush.

Yup. Bought a 2013 Expedition a year ago this month, and as with the three other Expeditions we've owned, not a single new-car problem. If you look at Jayco's video of final assembly and then look at an automobile assembly line video you'll notice the auto industy is far ahead in using robotics. I think that's at least a partial reason for the quality issues with RVs. A machine is going to put the right nut on the right bolt every time, even if it is Friday afternoon.

TT problems are seldom engineering problems like Autos. No where near as complicated either. Mostly they seem to be sloppy assembly issues by the Amish "craftsman"..

The quality control of the assembly of my trailer was not acceptable to me.

We spent the first 18 months dealing with one quality issue after another. Jayco did fix most problems but they should never have happened in the first place. When we need to buy a different unit it will most likely be something else. We have concluded that if it stays in one place it will last longer so we have left it in Az and bought a smaller trailer for summer time travels.

Even the High Dollar Class A have the same problems as do the lower priced ones.

X2! My Eagle is my first Jayco product, and I'm very satisfied with the quality.

It seems like the Jayflight line gets very few complaints here, even though it is not the top of the lineup. If you look at other forums of major high production RV owners you will find some complaints in all of them about QC concerns. We get some here too, but not that many. And of course the many members who are pleased may not say so since their unit is performing as expected.
