We purchased our new Holiday Rambler 44B in April of 2018. We were able to get the unit for about 30% under sticker. Of course three days after we bought it, the dealer had a big sale and I could have saved even more if we had known of the big sale. However, I am happy with the price that we paid and we plan on keeping this Coach unlike the Jayco that came before it and the Forrest River that came before before. LOL
During the first three months we have traveled approximately 6K miles.
We had one major issue at 2500K miles. When stopping to check the toad at a rest stop, I noticed the smell of Antifreeze and sure enough there was a leak under the front of the coach. Of course it was a Saturday and REV Group was closed. We have coach net and a phone call to them was placed and they said they would suggest a tow to a qualified repair center. I agreed and hung up waiting for them to call me back. In the mean time, I called Freightliner Custom Chassis(FCC) RV hotline. Man, the guy at Freightliner was the most professional person I have ever spoke to. I explained the issue to him and he informed me that the issue would not be with FCC but with the coach builder. However, he said do you really need heat in the dashboard at this time of year? I replied no and he said well then lets get you back on your vacation. He carefully walked me thru how to close the shut off valves that fed the front on the coach so as to stop the leak. Once this was done, he walked me through adding distilled water to the engine coolant and waited on the phone while I restarted the engine and checked for leaks. The leak was gone and I was back on the road. This man from FCC was an awesome help to me and if that is how I will be treated in the future, I am very exited to own a Freightliner.
I had a question about the operation of the Tag Axle Dump button on the dash, so I called REV Group. They were unable to answer my question which was this : The button has three settings. Manual , automatic and disabled. What does this disabled setting actually do. The man said he would need to talk to engineering but they would most likely be closed as it was late on a Friday afternoon and he would call me back when he had more information. I said ok sure and hung up knowing I would never hear back from them. 10am Monday morning i got a call back and was given a full explanation on the use of the Tag Axel three way switch.
Lack of hot water pressure at kitchen sink. This turned out to be a kinked water hose, which I was able to fix myself.
Paint peeling behind slide out on drives side.
Leaking hydrlic fluid from front drivers side leveler jack.
I called Rev Group and made an appointment at their East Coast Repair facility. They were booked out until end of August.
These are all of the issues that we have with the coach after 6K miles. Everything works perfectly and I am very impressed with the build quality of this rig. The actual build quality if leaps and bounds above that of our 2018 Jayco Precept that we traded in for the new Holiday Rambler.
I am very very pleased with my purchase and I hope things continue to work without issues.
Thank you for reading my post and I hope to give update after my warranty visit in late August.
