Every RV is exposed to the enemy that will kill it: water. It sloshes up when driving, rains down on it in the campground or storage yard, runs through pumps, pipes, fittings and tanks that can break. If the RV you own or are considering purchasing is built without sufficient protection, it can rot. When RV manufacturers cut the wrong corners, they can build near-guaranteed cases of camper cancer into their products. This is the story of a brand-new Riverside RV travel trailer that developed a small leak that would eventually ruin it.
The story of the materials used, the types of slipshod construction common to many manufacturers, the ways they avoid satisfying their warranty obligations and then the mess they can make when they do the necessary work will help you whether you already own an RV or considering purchasing one.
