        Travel Trailer

        Purchased a new Gulfstream Visa 19 ERD from Bates June 8th. After a shakedown cruise, we returned the camper for warranty work including replacement of microwave, replacement of a dry rotted tire, broken cover on city water connection and repair of leaking shower faucet, caulking. Work was eventually accomplished but the travel trailer was in their shop for over a month for no more than a day's worth of simple repairs. They also overcharge for parts and service/parts personnel are not familiar with the product.

        Pop-up Trailer

        I bought a used trailer from them with a non-working toilet. They agreed to fix the toilet prior to pickup two weeks later. I called ahead and asked if work done and they said yes. Arrived to find work not done. They just laughed when I complained. How many ways can I say I was unhappy to pick up a trailer with no working toilet for the trip home. We had to go to a motel on the trip back. Now I am having to go into a local RV place which means more fooling around.
