Bought a $50,000 2018 Dutchman 5th wheel toy hauler from Camping World.This was our retirement gift to ourselves.Now we are afraid to go anywhere with it.We were getting ready to leave to go camping for the 3rd time when the gear box motor went out on a new camper for the slideout.Called the manufacturer Dutchman on the problem, they told me to contact the dealer.Camping World advised me that the warranty was up after one year.We had the camper 1yr. and 2 days. After checking the internet,it was found that there are alot of problems with this gearbox leaking and gears stripping.The gearbox is above the slideout and when it leaks it melts your rubber on the roof.One guy said this was his 4th replacement in 4yrs..I can't beleive that Dutchman will not correct this problem.If the gearbox goes bad with the slideout out,you have to push the slideout in by hand in order to move your camper to get it fixed at a dealer,thats a little hard when the slideout is almost 10' long you need several people.Then you will have to wedge boards inside on top so the slideout will not come out while travelling.
