Worst customer service I've ever experienced! This is the response I received: "After further review this is not something that we would cover. As you are a second owner and we cannot deem this as a manufacturing issue because it is noted in our owners manual (page 53) that this must be checked on...

Reviewer's quote

...of all three slide outs, missing rubber inserts that hold the stove top on, microwave not installed properly (nearly fell out!), next to worthless 12 month warranty (my trailer sat at two different Meyers RV dealerships for over 4 months of the first 12 months I owned it!), after 12 months they ignored me. I fixed many issues myself! There were many more issues that were created from the dealership's fixes! I have nearly 200 pictures, and hundreds of e-messages to prove that they don't care about customers. They only care about profits from poor quality trailers! There needs to be consumer protection laws for RVs! I'll never buy another new...
