Even if you end up with a smattering of better tech here or there, the bulk of the vehicle will consist of low-end components, and as a result, the rig will be reliably unreliable. This is a sales tactic that Class B builders intentionally leverage, and it is formally known as "misdirection". They might crow about a particularly nice inverter, for instance, in order to distract you from making the inevitable observation that the bulk of the build still consists of mass-market crap.
My husband and I got around this issue by buying a half-decent Class B, and then spending 3 years of part-time hobby work upgrading and hardening its components. Functionally it bears no resemblance to the original unit (blog here
, although our largest projects such as our lithium upgrade haven't yet been described).
