I read so many build issues with AS Interstate and although we really like the interior and the features, I am quite scared to babysit the issues. Are these forum-reported issues true?
Totally true. We used to own a 2005 Interstate. Basic design and systems were great. Build quality was disgraceful. The problems are mostly fixable--leaky plumbing, sloppy caulk, unreliable wiring, improperly treated penetrations leading to local rust, etc. etc. There is no evidence that things have improved.
We loved our Interstate, and by the time we sold it it was in great shape. But it was a LOT of work to get it there.
