Quote from: ADR on February 04, 2018, 03:59:53 AMMakes no sense at all to me. Why would you ditch a known name with a pretty good reputation, better than most I'd say?
Quote from: djsamuel on February 04, 2018, 06:46:18 AM I have mixed feelings on the change to a steel frame. Pre Thor, Livinlite did this with their fifth wheel for structural reasons. I'm wondering how many weld issues they've had with the aluminum frames, both from the factory and with any repairs. Big difference between welding steel and aluminum.
Quote from: Mitch on February 04, 2018, 07:51:51 AMThe change to steel frame is just another step. The fact that the name Camplite may stick around within the Venture RV line isn't really important. The product as it existed is gone. Simply put, an aluminum frame, aluminum wall, aluminum roof, no wood camper was conceivably a lifelong camper and no company wants to build a lifelong camper, it eats into return customers.
