Default 1997 Rialta Rust




This is a 1997 Rialta that was stored indoors. The problem was that the toilette dropped down a little bit wich led to me removing the LH interior to reveal no floor, just rust. This Rialta was never driven in snow and was kept indoors. I am quite certain that ALL of them are doing this.

The best thing is to join http://www.bigtent.com and look up rust subject on discussion groups. A NH member has spent $8K on rust repair to his rialta. Winnebago did a poor job of building the rear section of the Rialta and did not rust proof the metal very well. There are a lot of R's that are not rusty and are still being driven today. Also you may want to join the Yahoo Rialta-Tech group for more files on repairs and modifications.
