Thumbs up 275BH Is junk.

Purchased a 2014 275BH in June. It has had issue after issue and even more issues. The latest....we noticed insulation hanging down off the front of the camper. My husband went under the front of the camper and found the entire front WAS NEVER SEALED OR ATTACHED TO THE FRAME. IT'S COMPLETELY SEPARATED. Add this to the LIVE WIRE FOUND IN THE LEAKING AIR CONDITIONER. This is a dangerous unit and I am now terrified to out my family in it. What if the front end falls completely off? This unit has only be DRIVEN 75 MILES!!!

The dealers service guy told me, "you better learn to relax". Really? Maybe because it was my money that was spent on this junk and not his.

What recourse do I have with this piece of junk?

It it repaired is one recourse.. the other is trade it in on something else. Mine stays in the shop also repairing broken stuff almost after every trip. Its in there now as I write. Oh buy an extended warranty.. That also helps.

We refuse to dump another dime on this piece of garbage and that includes money for an extended warranty. It really is sad what junk is being put out there. I for one believe the DOT should regulate what comes out of these manufacturers. I've heard too many stories of bad axels, lies about weights, etc. It needs to be more about consumer safety. If I'm driving down the highway and the front of this camper falls off because it was never attached properly, it becomes my problem and it shouldn't.

What's the Lemon Law in NJ? You may have some recourse there.

Also you may wanna look into at least consulting an attorney.

I would start with the NJ Attorney General's office and also see if NJ has a consumer affairs department as they can bring pressure. What does the dealer say and what have they done to fix these defects. Did you do a complete PDI before accepting delivery? A lot of these kinds of issues should show up during that process.

I get tired of these types of threads and question their authenticity. Four months ago the OP joined this forum, made two slam posts, made up a very negative screen name, and then disappears - all in one day. OP hasn't made any further posts and has contributed nothing to this forum since then. Does the OP only want to vent and not listen to any advice from members? Or does the OP want to submarine a product? Perhaps threads like this, with no further response or forum activity from the OP, should be deleted after a period of time.

well no idea on their circumstances but we bought our trailer and didnt use it for two months as well but my dutchmen trailr is junk. we had to call the rep in from seattle to help us out and even at that they were hard to deal with. its pretty sad when a dealer and manufactor wont stand by what they build and sell

Maybe in a year or two all the bugs will be worked out(I hope so anyways)
