My wife and I are currently looking at a new 2020 Cyclone 4007; comparing it to a Grand Design. So far we are not impressed with the quality of construction in the Cyclone - cabinets hung crooked/ don't close because the opposing cabinet door is set too close. MCD shades in the Living Room don't retract - one side is flush with the window dressing, the other is out of it and catches. Pleated shade in the hallway broken (could have been done at the dealer but we were told it arrived that way. On the Grand Design we don't find these type of things albeit I'm sure that there are things there to that we just didn't see on an initial walk through -- and that is what is scary, we found these on an initial walk through, not during any type of PDI.
That said, the Cyclone has the features we are looking for (residential fridge (we don't boon dock that much), roomy bedroom (the slide in a slide makes for a massive Master Bedroom), and seating in the living room.) The anticipation of warranty problems, not to mention the potential quantity of little things that I might be able to handle, is very concerning to me. Thanks for listening / reading this.
These are the issues that irk everyone the most. You don't hear a lot of complaints about waster leaking at the seals on a new rig unless the hole was cut out to big to seal. Instead of spraying hours worth of water, pull on a shelf or 2 and see how many fall off where some newbie is nailing it together a 1000 mph. If they want to check for water leaks, pull the basement doors and hook up to city water and check the pex fittings inside. The elaborate
rain bay is probably where they wash the rigs before shipment.
Regardless of what they do for pre shipment, it's still up to the buyer to due a thorough PDI before taking delivery and closing on the deal. That's when you have control over the dealer. Pull it off the lot and your at their mercy. JMO
