Unless you just really know about these RV's and have ways to get things fixed, it seems to all come down to one thing whether buying new or used. Have every DETAIL checked before buying.
My fear with the units 1 or 2 years is old is many are being sold because of the problems being stated. It is big ticket item that even with warranty; cost a lot of money while being idle. So new owner comes along and buy the used unit. All of the problems may not have been resolved? New owner is buying as is. Thor & Dealer makes more money as they no longer have to pay for all of the original defects under warranty.
I think I can handle what components may fail after I buy, but the things that were clearly from poor assembly and defective from Thor is 100% unacceptable by Thor, and unfortunately the good intended Customers who are use to trusting that no manufacturer would push out a new product with the number of issues that RV Mfgs do. IMO, it is deceptive trade in way. The practice should be banned indirectly by allowing owners of new rigs more recourse when defects are noted. i.e. What if Mfgs were forced to extend the 1 year warranty an additional day for every day beyond the first 20 days that an open claim under warranty was active? Some owners warranty may end up lasting 3 years. But the intended outcome is to make Mfg think twice before sending unit to dealer and making the PDI less stressful or CRITICAL.
