As much as we love our perfect little T@B trailer… to be honest, it’s not exactly perfect.
The first thing we noticed shortly after we got it home, were the scratches on all the windows. My assumption is that during the ‘detailing’ job at the dealership, they weren’t sufficiently soaked to get rid of the winter dirt before rubbing commenced.
Shortly after arriving at Maryhill State Park (our 2nd day out on the road with the T@B) we were chatting with a few folks about the T@B and one of them pointed out the fact that we had no trim on the left side of the T@B at the back…. which explained why there were a ton of black marks on the back of the trailer (exceedingly difficult to remove, BTW) and perhaps the reason that other drivers were staying unusually far behind us on the highway.
As much as ‘whipping trim’ might be considered a beneficial feature, I guess we’ll find just how well T@B’s warranty program works.
UPDATE – May 24, 2009: Just talked to Maureen, the warranty lady at Valley RV in Westbank and she advises me that Dutchmen (T@B’s manufacturer), is ‘having trouble’ accepting my photograph of the missing trim and did I still have the trim? Uh, NO… it FLEW off in transit. She also expressed surprise at the problem – never having heard of this happening before – uh, if you bother to read T@B owners comments online, they’d KNOW that this isn’t the first case of disappearing trim. Furthermore, she didn’t even bother to mention the windows.
HELLO? Look left, look right, look left, look right. See the difference?
Anyway, now they’re sending their own ‘specialist’ over to take pictures.
Will keep you posted.
