2012 Coachman RV peeling interior furniture

We have a 2012 class C Coachman leprechaun with 36234 miles (ca. 58,313 km). The material on the captain chairs , theater seats and the dinette cushions are peeling and it looks awful. We already had to remove the theater seats and replace them for this reason. This is going to cost a total of $3000.00 dollars.

We had the same issues on our 2016 Brookstone 369FL with the reclining theater seats!

Cheap furniture

We bought a 2012 Mirada brand new and after the 2 years upholstery started to peel. No help frm dealer in getting replacements. I had the passenger and driver seats reupholstered at a cost of $700.00. Now dinette and jack knife sofa need to be done. So mad about this but nothing else to do but pay the cost to have reupholstered. Please be aware of the cheap leather used on this Motor home.

User's recommendation: Make sure furniture does not have the cheap leather or plastic upholstery.

Dec. 2018 we purchased a new 2019 Forest River 5th wheel. In just a few weeks, the nightmare began. Propane leak going directly inside the bedroom, back window leak, cable and electrical issues, and their own inspector said it was unsafe. You would think that would warrant attention, but no. Forest River just kicked the can. It was inspected and went to RV service 6times before it was picked up from Alabama to Indiana for what we were told the manufacturer would fix everything. Took months of asking and demanding a work order, to finally see that it was sent to a small engine place a few miles from them. Since then the oven, which never worked, blew up with me in the unit. It gets worse. Only a week or so later the awning light caught on fire. Electrician had to cut a line because the wire was still live. I finally had enough and called the Attorney Generals Consumer division and sent in every email, photo, inspection, and letters proving they had lied directly to the office. Had I ignored phone calls, and emails from the state, I would be in jail. These big companys have no fear and could care less about bad product or the customer. To them, it's all about the money.

User's recommendation: Try your RV out before you buy.

We have a 2012 Mirada with junk furniture. I have had both front seats re upholstered at a cost of $800.00. Cheap leather started to peel about 1 yr after we purchased. Now I have to have the sofa done. I am embarrassed to have anyone inside. Looks terrible. Going to...

2020 Coachman T326BHDSLE plumbing issues, flooding and poor construction

Update by user May 19, 2020

Full update to follow with pictures!***Spoiler Alert*** Not a damn thing has been done to resolve even a single issue in this utterly defective P.O.S! The situation is getting worse by the day as this BRAND NEW 2020 COACHMAN (THAT HAS NEVER SEEN THE ROAD POST-DELIVERY) CONTINUES TO FALL APART AND FAIL!

Our temporary solution to the dire and unexpected circumstances we (Wife and 2 children) found ourselves in, resulting from dishonest/fraudulent home sellers and a grossly negligent home inspector is proving to be the last mistake we'll make before inevitably becoming homeless. Praying the attorney can pull a rabbit out of his hat and force the hand of Coachman/Forest River, Stoltzfus Rv's Inc (Adamstown, PA), or both, before the RV becomes completely unsuitable and can no longer meet our needs.Full update to follow (I've learned it's best to ration the aggravation rather than let it fully consume me in one sitting)

Update by user Mar 11, 2020

Monetary Loss $36K

Original review posted by user Mar 11, 2020
We took ownership of this new Coachman on October 31, 2019. We have traveled 0 (ZERO) miles. It was delivered and professionally set up and has not been moved since. Since taking ownership, both bathrooms have flooded multiple times due to defective pex connections. The cabinetry and trim has begun to delaminate. The tank sensors in ALL 4 TANKS (2 gray and 2 black) are defective despite following treatment instructions, etc. The main AC unit is not functioning properly and won't shut off at thermostat setting. Window tracks have been broken since day 1. Molding is coming off throughout the entire RV. The door knobs don't cover the holes they are cut through (despite several adjustments) At this point, I could never imagine taking this POS on the road! My family and I depended on this to get us through months of unexpected construction needed on newly purchased home. We bought brand new so we wouldn't have any other issues arise while we dealt with our home ordeal. This purchase had only added to the nightmare!!!

User's recommendation: Don't buy this POS!!! It is poorly constructed overpriced JUNK!

Disappointed in quality of our camper

Purchased our Coachmen Catalina destination camper in 2015. Within a few months the converter went, had that repaired under warranty. Just before the warranty expired the outside electrical outlet quit working. Then the closet doors in the bedroom won't slide. Called the dealer we got it from and they were no longer in the camper business. It still does not work. The awning motor quit . We now have a very soft floor in part of the galley that could open up if stepped on. We are doing our best to not do that. To top this all off my husband has cancer and will be starting treatments. We cannot afford all of these repairs. We are very disappointed with the quality of this Coachmen. Thank you for reading my complaints.

Cannot get working TV. Customer service won't return calls.

We have had three TV's replaced in our Leprechaun Motorhome. The 4th TV is now not working. The dealer said they would no longer deal with it, have to contact factory.

Furniture issue

We have a 2013 Coachmen Encounter, MSRP 143,000. Sleeper sofa and both captains chairs peeling. We have used a cover on them because I do not like the VINYL MATERIAL. To replace the items we have had quotes of around $3500. If a company has a problem with an item that they have sold as a good quality product. You would think they would do better to assist consumers to correct the issue. This is our 3 motorhome and this is the first to do this and this one by far is this most expensive. Hope to hear the Company to step up and help us. If you have an issue please make the Company aware of the issue.

2016 Freedom Express Blast 271 front panel skin warped.

Coachmen RV - 2016 Freedom Express Blast 271 front panel skin warped.
I am very disappointed in your product 2016 Freedom Express Blast 271 BL. The front composite all season panel is warped to extreme! What type of warranty do you have on this 4 season RV? After one year there is not any warranty. So you have a deformed trailer that isn't sell able and you’re a fool for buying an inferior product with no quality control. screws were missing and caulking was not adequately applied. These overlooked issues caused this damage.
