We purchased our RT new, and have used it for one season now. We are extremely pleased with it so far. It has an abundance of power on the road, handles and rides very nicely, and we think above average on quality in most areas. We didn't find any other manufacturer that had the fit and finish quality of the RT. Having said that, we still occasionally have small issues that bother us. The frige really struggled on one of our trips down south in 95 degree weather, and it made keeping things cold pretty tough. We have since hopefully resolved that issue, and if it works like we hope this year, all should be well. I think RT attempts to purchase good quality appliances and hardware for their units, but I also think that no matter who the manufacturer, they all walk a fine line on saving a buck. To me probably the biggest draw back to this type of unit, is that you will almost always have to get your parts from a RT dealer, and there are no bargains available thru them. So much of these vans are very specialized parts, and you can't just substitute some off the shelf item in most cases. Aside from that area, I think the RT is a very good choice if you are looking for quality, apperance and functionality.
