Made a mistake

I had owned a 2009 jayco 31.5 fbhs for 11 years, loved it, never had to take to dealer, went looking for a new fifth wheel with mid bunk, didn't like the jayco ones, colors, loft were only available in the larger fifth wheels, which were more money, so went to a forest river flagstaff model, 45k price range, like looks and features, but quality is nowhere close to jayco, having lots of issues! Not sure what I am going to do, don't want to give up 3/4 ton truck to go to 1 ton, are all trailer manufacturers lowering build quality to meet demand or do I have to spend 70K to get quality

Hate to tell you but the quality of a 70 K will be the same as what your looking at. Line model changes but not the employees.

It's a shame/sham the quality we get for the price we pay. I have been most impressed with the Jayco units that we have owned, though.

To maintain profit margins as costs go up, guess what’s gonna go down…
