What would you guys think if, WW just built like 2 trailers a day instead of 20? Then they sold direct instead to dealerships. And they worked on quaility first inovation and r&d would be more important also.

Would they be the toyhauler to have? Possible the cult classic rv to have?

I have never owned one, however, those that I have seen and seemed to be really nice.

I think was something becomes totally massed produced, quality does go down.

If WW sold direct, I would be curious how they would be distributed throughout the country...would you have to visit them in CA to get one or what?

Not sure how many they would be able to build a day, however, quality, cutting edge designs and innovation should be the focus...like the saying, quality not quantity.

Not sure about Giant rv right now. Most these guys are not going under because they are out of money. Just cant keep mass producing these things when inventories are full and demand is way down. I think it is a perfect time to re-invent the process. With different goals for the final product. Return customers will take a look at them, and there are alot of return customers for WW.

they got too big too fast, now im sure thier overhead is gigantic. WW will scale down, figure out the direction of the market, be patient and come back more effeciently run and better than ever im sure..

I do too ( 06 ) we love ours and have not had any problems. Hang on to yours. I called Travelon RV after I heard about this they told me they just had a meeting and that one of the things they talked about was that they believe that the value of the weekend warrior will go up due to discontinuation, also there is a side company called weekend warriour gear { i think} will be carrying parts for a long time to come....you know what they say if its no longer available, then people want them, or something like that.

Travelon fed you a bunch of crap! Look at it this way, most banks will not finance an rv whos manufacturer has gone out of business. If no one will finance them then who will buy them? They will have to be priced so aggressively just to get a lender to bite on them. When National RV went under last year they sold the remaining units at auction and they brought about 30% of book/invoice, that's 60k for a motorhome that listed new at 200k! What do you think that did to the resale of every other National product?

As far as the manufacturer direct thing, there are a couple of companies that do it that way with success. I like my fk2100 and would buy another!

I would still buy W.W. I looked at every brand before I bough mine and I felt it was the best toy hauler on the market. It was definatly the most plush. It had all the amenities one could want. The wife and I joke about this being the selling point. Hah

If they where totally custom they would be too pricey though imo. They should be a small quality oriented company, problem is that is where they started and like every business owner-greed kicks in! The motorhome did them in. imho

In the last 6 years I have owned 3 Warriors and before I bought the last one the wife and decided to give the other manufactures a look to see what they had to offer and guess what I bought another 40' WW. The WW was the most comfortable and set up just right. I was thinking of getting another one but I will keep this one for a while now. As far as the warranty oh well,fix the shit as it has issues if any no big deal.

Not totaly custom, just better emenities;

It wasnt the Owners greed at WW that killed them, His bonus program was to generious, in a nut shell it was the greed of the employees and lack of oversight by suits including Mark.

How about electric awnings, how about auto levers on every unit. Ice makers. The basic rig will be better than any loaded other brands. And yes a much smaller company could do this!
