Hi - we are looking at buying a 2018 Tab 400. It's new old stock from a dealer. The current asking price is $7k off MSRP. I might be able to get a bit more - I just haven't tried haggling yet.
I've been looking through this forum and found a thread talking about issues some owners had...leaks in the bathroom, leaks around the stargazer window, doors not closing, water pressure problems, entry door fit issues, etc. It wasn't a long thread but it was enough to make me think twice about making an offer.
This would be my first travel trailer so my experience with trailers in general is minimal to say the least. I really like the Tab but these things are expensive and I don't want to put good money towards something that will cause me grief.
We saw the trailer today and spent a couple of hours looking it over. The door under the sink and one of the overhead doors in the galley did not seem to fit right. The trailer was sitting on a sloped part of the lot so it was leaning a bit to the right. I'm hoping maybe that was the cause of the misalignment. The screen in the front window seems to be broken and there was a line from the corner of the same window down to the dinette bench - almost like evidence of a window leak.
Are these things that should be cause for concern? The trailer will come with a full new trailer warranty but that just means the costs will be covered if something goes wrong. It'll be a major pain in the behind if I have to constantly send it in for repairs.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the reliability of the 2018 model. Thanks very much.
