Purchased new off dealer lot, took out next day. Found drawers poorly constructed. Both kitchen drawers have no stops, both opened spilling everything. Drawer below sofa again no stops and tore glider and bent. Tried to use kitchen outlet and no power to rear of coach.Found wire broken off rear of GFI in bathroom.
When salesman did walk through with us discovered grey tanks need drained in two different locations. Requiring moving rig get to other tank. Drain valve on holding fresh water tank requires you climb on your knees to reach valve.
All said I do like the trailer, just was not thought thru for convenience of elderly users.
Have not taken in for warranty work as of today. Scheduled in a few days.

Drove to Cinncinati to buy it in June 16. Towed it home to Memphis 400 miles no issues. Towed it to Virgnia Beach stayed a week no problems, back to Memphis stayed at 3 RV parks no issues. AC turned on 24 hours a day. No issues.Refrigerator full of food turned on while driving using inverter no problems. Towed to Daytona stayed a week and back to Memphis. No issues. Have almost 4000 miles had to top off tires back to 65 psi. That was it. I like this Vibe. I did relocate the inverter from left side to the right side of the storage compartment for easy access.

Nice looking, but that\'s about it. Poor quality, even worse quality control. I\'ve had mine back to dealer twice and still haven\'t been able to get all the problems fixed. From leaking sink drains, trim coming off, awning wired backwards, doors and drawers that don\'t fit, to miss leading specs!

We purchased a 2015 Vibe RKS The worst purchase we have ever made. On our first trip out the water fell, the slider leaked and since that time the trailer have been in the shop many times. Water taps squeak, stove fan quit, only hold 25 gallons of water when it says there are 44, doors keep opening while traveling, back of nook loose, certain holders keep breaking, moulding falling off, kitchen trim crooked and bubbling, tires wore unevenly after 15000 KM
Axels leaked oil causing breaks to fail, seals around hold leaking Slider leaking (parts not installed, unable to change light The list goes on and on. No support from manufacture or dealer do not recommend either.

Don't buy a Vibe! We bought this trailer because we fell in love with the floor plan. It is cheap because it's built cheap.. Trim isn't glued properly, screws fall out everywhere, couch comes unbolted, and there were pebbles under the vinyl floor (couldn't do anything about it) slide outs never completely closed/opened properly. The final straw was the axel breaking after the barrings caught fire. They did pay to fix axel (we were stranded for 5 days). The rest of the problems were never fixed adjusted differently but never fixed. Warranty was impossible to work with. We wanted to trade it in for another, they wouldn't. It spent as much time in the shop as it spent with us? Used it as a trade in on a better quality while it was less than 1 year old took a loss of nearly 1/2 cuz it was used.
