WE are looking at a 2014 open range light. I do see that there has been a lot of issues from campers with water leakage form delame. I am hoping that as time as pasted these issues have been resolved. The nearest dealer is 100 miles away, this adds another concern. Does anyone own a 2014 or even a 13? Would love to know if you have had trouble with anything so far in your camping adventures.

Thanks for answering!

I have a Roamer which was the lightest ones they made in 2010 so not quite the same as the new ones but they are all made the same. I have been fulltiming in mine for the last 2 years. No Delam or any other problems other then the ones I had under warranty which were fixed quickly and well done. I made a post about the warranty work I had done which was 1 month before the 2 year was up, you can search for it if you want to know what I had repaired. I am very Happy with my OR, Been great, Never froze a line this winter and it was brutal this year. I will buy another OR when I decide to make a layout change.

We have a 2012 Open Range Roamer. Have had only two minor problems. A/C drain got plugged with tree debris, easy fix and had to replace vacuum breaker on toilet. All under warrantee.

Also delam doesn't cause water leakage, its the other way around.

I have a Roamer 367bhs. Mine has around 6-7000 miles on it. Only very minor issues. I kept a list of issues from the time I bought it until I got back from the World Skeet shoot in Oct.13 (about 5 months) dropped camper off at my dealer about 120 miles away. Picked it up a week later all fixed.

We have a 2013 Journeyer (TT) and love it. Have a couple of small problems that will be fixed under warranty. One window trim piece is loose. I think the antenna booster is not working correctly but it could be the cable signal at the campground we stayed at was not working right. I'll at least get it checked out. Antenna works perfectly but the cable picture was snowy (yes, I turned the booster off). That was the first campground we have ever stayed at that had cable. We also do not have cable at home. Check out the Open Range forum for more opinions.

Our Open Range 345 RLS has over 30,000 miles on it. We've lived it about 5 months of every year since we picked it up in early 2011. We've had NO major issues of any kind. We love it and would buy it again in a heartbeat! Great company.
