    I believe the only way we can get manufacturers to listen to us is to do rotating boycotts. Let's pick one manufacturer that is very bad and not buy from them for 6 months. If it improves and starts providing better service to its customers, then it gets ...  more

      Robbie & Alice Unfortunately, we're dealing with supply and demand, not quality, and there will be way more people buying by demand instead of those relying on a boycott to make any change to their buying habits.

      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) A couple of thoughts (OK, maybe three).  The manufacturers are not the only problem.  RV dealers also need to up their game.  And since the manufacturers are apparently counting on the dealerships to fix all of the factory problems, consume...  more Hide 3 Replies

        Boondockers Welcome You're right, Bruce. Foreign competition did make North American manufacturers finally up their game. But auto imports were already a part of our society when that happened. Are there any foreign-made (other than Canada) RVs being permitted now? Or will t...  more

      Bonnie Thiele I totally agree with your thoughts and would be willing to stand firm for 6-8 months.  I feel that anyone selling THOR products should be the first one to target. Its pretty sad to pay more for an RV then I did for my 4 bedroom, acre lot, with 4 car ...  more

      Bonnie Thiele With over 600,000 RVs selling every year the industry has got to improve with a Quality Control system that works!!!!

      Boondockers Welcome Class action law suit? Does someone "lawyerly" want to weigh in?
    • Boondockers Welcome
      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) Increased consumer protection, through lemon laws or other means, seems highly unlikely in the current political climate.  Although quality may be an industry wide problem, there is certainly variation between manufacturers.  Consumers vote with...  more

      Marsha and Dewey There is a public lands app, very helpful in making sure you are on public land. Shows your location. Hide 2 Replies
      • Frenchienkat
        Frenchienkat Thank you! We have the app but after spending 15 years before retiring from the IT industry I am very familiar with apps and how little a lot of apps are kept up to date after their creation and thus how out of date the information is. Better to go to a ...  more

        Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) The Public Lands app in the iStore is actively maintained.
    • Frenchienkat
      Boondockers Welcome Since public land boundaries rarely change, this app is not likely to be out of date - ever. Plus, it was created by RVers who are right on top of things - Chris and Cherie of Technomadia. But it only shows federal land boundaries and really - Texas has v...  more

      Warren Todd How did you snap an axle on your tow dolly?
    • MrBill&Roberta
      MrBill&Roberta Where the tire/rim was welded to the frame, is a small "axle" portion. Just failed. Just bought an eze load brand from someone in Yuma AZ. Giving it a complete once over today.
