Whats going on at Travel Supreme? Financial difficulty is the word I'm getting, and also getting very worried because our 5th wheel is in the shop and they won't release it to us until WE pay for the warranty work already approved and done by Travel Supreme! Not acceptable. Anyone know of a good RV attorney or at least one that would be willing to take this to court?

They are going to be back in production Monday! This is happening all over the industry. Newmar is shortening there production week as well as others! Monaco is cutting 20% of its workforce. No need to panic! this is a normal response to the slumping economy.

A tear comes to my eye when I think of relinquishing the last six years of my life over to this slumping economy. It's time to look for a new job and I will struggle to find one as stable as what this job used to be. God be with the families of those who work(ed) for Travel Supreme.

Puchased a fifth wheel in 1999 and because of its quality, puchased a TS motor home in 2006. I'm concerned not only about warranty issues but for the employees. I hope they get their problems resolved and reopen on Monday.

I can say from experience ... sometimes bankers pull plugs in response to market and economic conditions without respect to their customer’s specific financial health. My guess is TS has been doing a respectable job navigating through a changing market and the bankers lost their nerve. Chickens! Dick Cheese should check out Country Roads RV for a deal on a TS MH. As for me I pray that TS will find a way to survive. They represent quality and value in an industry where quality and value seldom meet. I was in the process of ordering a TS when this broke loose.

Call Holland Motorhome Sales, I know they have a pre-owned TS, because a friend of ours traded it in. Good luck.

I have been looking for a travel supeme selcet 5th wheel for a really good price. Either 2004-2005 I was wanting a 40 foot with the 4 slides,
This is the one that looks like the Travel Supreme Select motor home. We have a 1993 Teton that got destroyed with water that is in storage in the orlando fla area, but we cannot do anything with it, we traveled in it fo 10 years
and loved it. We are ready for something newer.
We also like the 2003-2005 motor homes, in the light wood. Do anyone know of some super prices on either of these?

Dear Worried, Try an attorney who handles breech of warranty under the Federal Magnusson Moss Consumer Protection Act.

I have no doubt that TS will survive this economic downturn. This is a very well run company with all the right reasons to continue to be one of the highest quality rv manufacturers in the industry. I have had two TS motorhomes and have had wonderful experiences with them. TS technical support is superior to all of the manufacturer's service and support. Have patience and you will be thankful and satisfied.

Even though we have had 2 Travel Supreme motorhomes, this latest development has made me decide to sell my new 2007 Select Limited. Besides the fact that I live in California and would rather not make any more trips to Indiana. Anyone interested in a purchase, please contact me.
