$80,000 - 100,000 units that they put junk furniture in... Looks good at shows and show rooms but lasts about 2-3yrs and then starts flaking & falling apart. Lippert/Thomas Payne supply most of or all of the THOR lineups. They no the furniture will start falling apart and yet continue to use it. If our car interiors started to fail like this there would be hell to pay. Replacement of $10,000 or more and the hassle of doing so is going to eventually catch up to these companies and their market share will fall. We had planned on trading in our 2015 in 4-5yrs but there is little to no point in that as the repairs will start again for things that should have been done right the first time and the new ones have the same issues and even less quality than their predecessors.... Sad state of the RV industry that will come back to bite them in the arse in a few short years........

It is true the pleather furniture flakes in short order and is a common and well known issue in many brands. We had the pleather changed out when we ordered our 13 3402 as we knew about that problem for years.

We own land in Sinkhole country so we pitched ours Montana furniture into the hole, archeologists in the distant future may study this Montana Furniture Culture, and graduate students may write thesis about how it made good erosion control. Next we pitched our King Bed mattress into the hole and it was even better at slowing the down erosion. If we could get enough Montanas furniture manufactured and pitched we could stop up or slow down the sinkholes.

Leather Furniture Also Peeling

All the "leather" furniture in our 2-yr old 2018 Montana 3950BR is peeling bad in some areas. I thought when I bought this RV that I was purchasing a "premium brand"....but not the case. Cheap furniture, A/C doesn't cool very well, had problems with the furnace, control board on one of the A/C's needed replacement. And of course none of this happened within the 1-year warranty!
