I bought my Rialta in 2004 from PPL in Houston. Flew one way and drove it home. I wouldn't recommend that dealer as they sold the vehicle to me with illegal trailer tires on it, only discovered by my local tire shop when I brought it in for them to determine why the ride was so hard. Despite the fact the RV also had Texas-size hail dents in the sides, the interior was in beautiful condition and it runs and handles beautifully while getting decent gas mileage.
Few VW or Winnebago dealers even service the vehicle (no bay large enough, so the VW dealers say). The dash air conditioner stopped working (and it worked great when I bought it), so we took it to Lithia Motors in Reno - big mistake. $1000 later, the air conditioner still didn't work. I have two cattle dogs I cart around in it, so it's hard on them in the sweltering summer heat of California's Central Valley with no air conditioning. A friend suggested using the Coleman roof air while running the generator to power it.
I'd like to find the original Bauhaus Autumn fabric (made by Hafner Inc mills in Canada, now defunct) if anyone knows of a place that sells remnants.
Also hard to find, the Continental Vanco tires (195/70R15). Not everyone stocks them. If anyone has found a comparable replacement, let us know.
