I don't know a single person that a certain model rv was thrust upon them.
It was your choice, your right, obligation, and allowed opportunity to pre inspect.
I think it often even requires a signature to release the vehicle after your PDI.
Why don't you sell it, and buy the rv with the build quality you expect?
I agree with you up until the "Why don't you sell it, and buy the rv with the build quality you expect?"
Selling an RV shortly after purchasing it creates a major dent in the pocketbook and most people do not see the "build quality" details until after the RV is home and things start falling apart that you expect should not fall apart or you peak behind the access doors and or under the bench seats and find all the "extra parts" and trash Thor (and other manufacturers) have left for you. There's no excuse for that shoddy work and switching brands looking for a coach built today that doesn't have these problems will get you broke fast.
I look at RVs as a kit: It's up to me to finish what the manufacturer could/would not to the level I expect and to add things to make it work better for me. Some peoples kits come pre-assembled with better workmanship than others. My kit works to my needs at this point in time but tomorrow I may find another piece that needs reassembling to my expectations.
