    Whilst the vast majority of people are very happy with their motorhome purchases, I know that there are a few of you that unwittingly bought a lemon with a hundred and one problems. I thought it would be a good idea to have all these lemons in one place. So if you did buy one, please do tell your story here. Thanks in anticipation::bigsmile:

    I have a new van based on the new Fiat X2/50 chassis as most of you will know there is a massive thread due to the front scuttle leaking water all over the top of the engine and electrics,I have to say mine is not as bad as others and it is going in for the recall warenty work this Friday, it has 3 jobs on the recall, scuttle, steering rack and starter motor. Is it a lemon, I don't thinks so and it is being fixed.

    :Sad: My first RV. A 1988 Coachmen Classic 32ft. Looked fantastic. Just shows you how looks can be deceiving?

    :Angry: BTW. Bought from a DEALER for over the top money. :Angry:

    Thinking about the "no pets, non-smokers" line when motorhomes are being sold, we've a couple of friends who don't smoke in their vans - they lean out of the windows!!:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
