I did a similar search and found a TV news video on the startup. Didn't watch it, didn't see links to other articles.

Sounds like some real scamp bashing going on over there I guess that will change when there $80.000 dollar rigs will be worth less than a $20.000 scamp in 10 years just my thought

Soooosh! They are listening in! Would hate for them to discover they can own a leak free trailer for 23 years and put thousands of nights camping use on it and have it still worth what was paid for it, if not more! We have to many people looking for them now pushing the prices up.

The postings seemed creepy to me, airing personal laundry on a business page, maybe not the place.

Cathy a google of news events in Winfield Alabama area at the time seems to me to indicate there was a family issue but I suspect it was a concern for their safety & that of their children. I suspect as Canadians they would have been a bit ratted with events taking place in the Winfield at the time as they have never lived with serious race related issues before and been scared off by recent KKK activities in the area.

I noticed that too. My jaw dropped But, it is a Class B forum. We do something very similar here to trailers other than our build type. It's human nature to love the one you're with and dislike everything else. Here on FiberglassRV, we just happen to be correct.
