Oh man. That looks really bad. The entire slide is twisted?
Is that the floor peeling up in the last image?


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

I don't know. It looked like it. The slide will not move anymore to see. Someone from CW is supposed to pick it up tomorrow. The whole slide wall is twisted and the slide will not go in or out anymore. This MH is barely 3 weeks old. I researched and read about all the slide issues on the 2013's. I guess I was hoping it would not happen to us. This is really BAD!

Looks real bad and if you purchased it from camping world then I would ask for a new one, or tell the to scrap the deal. Most places if you have less than 30 days you have time on your side, I sure would not accept that back. The slide has to be removed then they will have to replace the floor and do not settle for them to patch the laminate. everything will have to be removed to redo the floor. Let us know how it turns out.

If that last pic is a slide its probably the wood wrapping to make the particle board look like real wood. The slide probably dragged and due to it not being wrapped correctly pulled off. I had our MH in for the same thing ( not wrapped correctly). Just plain lazy work and lack of quality control.

The slides ... I feel your pain !! Make sure you start documenting all your repairs. They might come in handy down the line.

Quick question, was the motor home level with jacks down when this happened.

Yes. level and on the jacks. The concern I have now is the when we saw it on the CW lot, it was in about the most unlevel place it could be and not on the jacks, The slides were out and I know they put them in without the unit being on the jacks. I already noted that some metal shavings were coming off of the top rear slide gear rail, but no one at camping world or Thor seemed to think it was a problem. Now they have a major disaster on their hands.

I looked at a 2013 here in Ct. and noticed the paper pulling off the wood in the same area. It is a nice looking unit though. Hope you get it fixed up in a hurry. Since you purchased from CW contact Marcus in the CW rv sales on this forum.

No...you were not an 'idiot' for buying it. The IDIOTS were the guys who built it.

Gosh, who needs that kind of grief. Good luck with it all.

The RV industry does not care about the consumer or quality. They just keep pushing this junk out the door and we keep buying them with the hope that they'll do a good job.

Someday, a smart foreign manufacturer will figure out how to build them correctly and ship them to the U.S. for a profit. When that happens, the RV industry will either have to shape up or go out of business. I'm not saying all of them are junk, but I've yet to buy a TT of FW that didn't need extensive warranty work right out of the showroom.
