For those that have had a Redwood for over a year now, how are they holding up? Are the systems(AC, heat, plumbing) still performing well? Are the counters, carpet, furnature, cabinets, showers, beddingwithstanding the normal wear and tear, or not? Is the paint on the outside still shiny, or fading? How much have you used the rig, a few weekends or fulltime. We are very interested in the Redwood, maybe even going to order one, just trying to find out how they are doing after some usage.

Have not used ours to speak of. It spends all of it's time in the repair shop.

Not withstanding Lillyputz's problems, our 36RL is holding up relatively well - knock on wood. Yes, we've had our share of problems, but overall we are extremely pleased with it. We've had our unit since 11/11/11 and are full-timers moving across the nation and back as the weather chases us. We are going back to the Crossroads Service Center to have some warranty work done in July. As with any RV and manufacturer, there will be problems. Just take care of them as they arise. BTW, the paint is holding up extremely well with normal washings and semiannual waxing.

We've had our 36RL with full paint for 14 months now. No major manufacturing issues. We don't full time yet but use it as often as we possibly can. We have about 3500 miles on the unit. The paint has seen a few chips thanks to road rocks and debris but it's easy to touch it up. We didn't order the disc brakes and have had several seals pop on the drum brakes. They have been repaired promptly. If I were ordering a new unit again, I'd get the discs. The back large window was replaced due to warping in the frame. Now it's working fine. Our roof was accidently ripped by the service people we use. It was replaced and is doing it's job.

We've done several of the modifications to it including the exit valve on the sewer connection to gain more gray water storage. Added two make shift night stands to the king bed. The washer/dryer, dishwasher, and sat dish work as they should. We opted for vinyl flooring in the living area but the carpet in the rest of the unit is holding up well. No leaks in the shower or skylight over the shower.

This is our third RV experience and have been happy with the support that we've received from our service people and the factory. We are very high on the Redwood product and would recommend you do as much research as you can on Redwood andcomparable units. That's what we did and Redwood came out on top every time.

Andrew,

Sorry to hear you would not order another Redwood. Some folks have had major issues and most of us quite a few minor issues. If there was ever an industry that needed an ISO quality program it is the RV industry. I must say a lot of bad press Redwood gets is from dealers failing to do the right thing for the owners. I have been told that the factory does not allow enough labor to fix some of the problems. The truth is the dealer probably does not have qualified personnel to do the job in the time alotted. Find a good dealer and you might just change your mind about Redwood.

We have had our 36RL 5 months now and full time. The main issue I have is the door latches good sometimes and not so good others. Part of it is the level of the pad and part is I don't think the farme is square to the opening. Microwave/Covection oven glass broke a seal needs to be repaired and the bedroom slide motors have gone out of sync (to be repaired). Other wise it's been great and would by another. Make sure to get disc breaks and G tires.

Our 36RL will be a year old at the end of the month. We're not full timers, but have spent all but 99 days in the RW since picking it up. We've put approx 10,000 miles so far and experienced very few problems and have not been anywhere for service. We do have an appointment at a Dealer near where we're at presently for our yearly inspection and have a jack replaced that is leaking ever so slightly. We traded in a 2010 Montana for our RW, and the RW is head and shoulders above the Montana. Can't tell you about the mattress as put our SleepNumber from the Montana into the RW. Everything works as intended and gets plenty of use in our day to day living.
If you were to order an RW some must have options would be: Disc Brakes, "G" Rated tires, Tri-Glide Pin Box, Dual ACs (onejust willnot do the trick in 90 degree temps, neither did a single unit in the Montana).

I've had my 36RL since July of last year and have been very pleased with this unit. I am a full timer and spent the past winter in Minnesota in temps down to -22 degrees (not including wind chill). The coach held up nicely. I've only had minor issues with the coach, and those were all repaired to my satisfaction on the first visit back to the dealership after my original purchase. Would I purchase another one.....yup.
