A nightmare of a new RV story
While in San Diego at the Chula Vista RV Resort, I got to talking with a family who lives full time down there in their RV (Not a Montana). We had met them before since we frequently stay down there. Our last discussion they were purchasing a new 5th wheel. On the day they were taking possession, they hooked it up and pulled out of the driveway of the RV dealership. Within a 100 yards and upon making a turn at only 3-5 mph, the entire trailer hitch king box ROTATED, broke loose, and crashed into the side of their truck. Needless to say, they are being covered for everything. The damage to the left side of the truck bed is $5,000.00 and the trailer was completely repaired. Luckily the family was not hurt and they were traveling slow. Talk about being upset. No walk through would prepare you for that disaster. Just thought I'd share it.
On a second note, our friend's brand new, never used 38' Alliance Paradigm 5th wheel was on its maiden voyage with us. One of the front hydraulic levelers would not work and the shower leaked down into the storage basement. Just goes to show that ALL trailer manufacturers and models of trailers can have their issues. Stay safe everyone.
