I see that three of the items involved other companies and are being addressed. We have not seen the hole on the roof. Have a photo?
Cathy- the thing is that they've seemed like small things- such as the rusty screws less than two weeks from taking delivery. However it just seems that there are regularly more things showing up and like lorrie, I believe our 2010 17B that we bought used had only one minor issue: the table slide broke as the table slid off because it never had the stop screw inserted. Tammy sent me new guides. Previous owners never had a problem. I haven't sent ETI a picture of the light you can see looking up from the bed, and yes CPA Harley I see them in all the other corners too in the build photos but this one evidently wasn't taken care of. The indent in the roof:

Not sure why we see this drip from time to time; usually after storing nose down in our driveway. See it drip when hooking up and bringing it up towards house with nose up. Thought there was no low point drain on the 21. It has that same yellow looking tape over a small hole in bottom of the fiberglass above the tank drain. Anyone know what this is? Normal?

Here's another of the roof. Doesn't look like a "mold hole" to me- looks like some damage that was hastily patched...but I could be wrong. This is what Reace sent me the Proflex for; but I'm not touching. Seems for sure we're heading up to Chilliwack at some point.

It's definitely in the owner's manual.

Wonder why they would have a statement like that? Folks full-time in a 13 Scamp and all kinds of rigs.

My wife and I were just talking about it - probably a CYA thing for warranty purposes.

It is a condensation issue primarily, which can cause mold, which can cause serious health problems.

Okay, I see where you and Lorrie are coming from as you expected this trailer to be perfect after next to nothing with the last one but this one has more problems! We bought our 19' used and the owners expected it to be perfect but they had various little problems. Of course, we went from a trailer that we did not order to one that we did, so therein lies the difference. We have numerous improvements even though there are some issues. We know some others had some worse problems than we do and that includes you.

I would want to take that hole in the roof to someone or send the photos to them to see what they think. You have not removed the tape? I would get some others' opinions on the hole. Then see what you think. We had to get such opinions when we bought our 19' as one just does not know unless familiar with fiberglass work.

The only drip that is common is from the water heater. It is expected to drip and that is fine. Any other drip, we do not know about.
