Man’s new RV ends up in shop twice, calls ABC 6

COLUMUBS, Ohio — A man says he bought a brand new camper to relax with his family and help relieve stress but is instead already frustrated with his $40,000 purchase.

    This guy best sell and buy a tent or stay in Motel 6. New, old, used, no matter what the cost (and $40,000 is not a lot in this hobby) there will always be something to fix.

    True enough Captn John. That said – it does seem the RV manufactures are getting units out the door as fast as possible and quality is suffering. I plan to buy one to travel for a year and am very reluctant to buy new for this very reason.
