Default "Trust me"

I'm with you on not trusting words. If the owner cannot produce convincing records and receipts I assumed it was not done.

The owner of my coach could produce no records. We agreed to adjust the price and I banked the savings. I still have some in my maintenance account.

Your due diligence will pay dividends in the end.

Good Luck

Quality comes at a price. Newell equips their coaches with the highest quality components available at time of manufacture. If they fail, they will cost more money to replace with the same quality. With proper maintenance the higher quality components should outlast lesser quality components, and with a little luck, the higher quality components won’t fail.

What you’re doing comparing Fleetwood to Newell because they're both American motorhomes would be like comparing Fiats and Lamborghinis because they’re both Italian cars.

Labor costs on various RVs are generally the same per hour; many of the major components (engine, transmission, wheels and tires, generators, etc) are often the same. The luxury stuff is more expensive, but usually lasts for a very long time if cared for.
