Coach Mirada EX7

It is more complain than an issue, but I think most of you, coachmen owners, faced these problems. I have a 2012 Coachman Mirada that I bought used, from local rv center in perfect conditions. Had numerous repairs from day 1. Toilet keeps overflowing because the foot lever doesn't in that style toilet. I just took it to Camping World to have a water test done because it was leaking. They told me there isn't a seam or opening that wasn't leaking. The bathroom shower faucet leaks, the passenger and drivers side window need replacing, the small side window is coming apart, the sofa, mind you only 3 years old is so cracked and peeling. The GFI keeps blowing.

There are a number of other issues, but all I want is to get it fixed and it seems that all I continue to do is pay. Coachman which use to be one of the prime RVs is now at the bottom of the barrel. I have never been more disappointed and can't get any satisfaction. Definitely would NOT recommend buying a motorhome from Coachman or Forrest River who recently bought out Coachman. Extremely disappointed!
