I'm probably a good example of a PC buyer: I never owned an RV before. I looked at many companies and models and was horrified at the quality of every RV I could afford. (I didn't bother looking at the Class As.) In many ways, the RV industry is like the home building industry: if you pay more money, you get more space, not better quality. I wanted a very high quality, compact motorhome that was configured to my needs and wants (no slide, a dinette, twin beds, lots of storage inside, etc.). I went to the factory and was shown units in work that met every need. I now own a 2018 2552 with no slide, with a dinette, two LONG twin beds, more storage than the regular 2552, and electrical outlets (110 and 12 volt) everywhere I asked for. I drove it almost 12,000 miles the first year, with no repairs except a broken screen door lock, and a replacement was sent to me in Alaska as I was driving. Those who grumble about a lack of perfection may need to take a step back and look at real life. Was your new home perfect? Your new car? Really? My only question is why PC chose to associate with a dealer like Camper Inn, whose poor quality (read the reviews!) and location (the southeast only) would seem a poor choice. But do I know what went into that decision? No. Would I like PC to survive to support my RV ten years down the road? Yes. Does picking nits on this forum support that goal? I don't think so.
PC has treated me well, they stand behind there product and have never tried to avoid me. I guess I've had more problems than most. It happens. It's not good to have a lot of negativity on the forum so I'll stop posting problems. PC owners are very loyal to the brand and that's good. Lynn
