Angry This is a disturbing read

My neighbor sent a link to an article/opinion about roof covering. The source is RV.org. After some looking I found this: https://rv.org/blogs/news/will-thor-...confidential-5
I may be depressed for the rest of the evening.
😢

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

They like cash money and they’re making too much of it to do anything to Jayco.

Yeah, I know it’s “doom n gloom” and hope it’s an incorrect opinion. Maybe I’m over thinking this but there seem to be more quality issues compared to when I bought my last one (2014). Jayco still seems to be stepping up to the plate for warranty issues tho.
Like I said, maybe I’m just over thinking this.

We have a 2014 Whitehawk and looking to upgrade to a newer TT come next summer. We have had very few issues with are current TT but having serious doubts about Jayco due to their acquisition by Thor. With Thor's rep to cut costs and maximize profits we will take a serious look come next spring on reported issues, if they is an increase in issues and Jayco's response is to minimize them we will be looking at a non-thor\Forest River manufacture for are new TT. Sorry state of affairs to say the lest.

Unfortunately, what do you buy if you don't like Thor or Forest River. Between them don't they own 80+% of the RV business?

For me, if my 2017 23RS was destroyed right now, I probably wouldn't replace with a Jayco, but this is simply because they do not make the 23RB any longer.
If they took the 21QB and made it a 23QB and used that added length to add a separate wardrobe I'd love that model.
