    Default Darn What a buz kill.

    Back in June of last year I had my trailer bunks Replaced. I could have done it myself but thought What the He,ll have a company that builds trailers here locally do it and be done with it. So I payed close to 675 bucks for the new wood and bunk carpet. I felt like I got a crappy deal from the get go. But the company has built a bunch off trailers locally. My Biesemeyer Tunnel's Trailer was made by them.

    This morning I'm rinsing off the silt from Bartlett Lake and decided to look underneath and found that they didnt place one of the bunks far enough over the metal bracket. SO all this time the inner tunnel has been banging up against the metal bracket. Im pretty hot right now. Just venting on here for now.


    Im gunna call them tomorrow and see what their policy is on this stuff. I'm really fuggen pist. I could have done this myself and done them the way I wanted to. They used 4 sticks. I wanted 2. I fell for the pitch. Now I'm even more Pist. The previous bunks were True 2" x 12" x 18' They replaced those with 4- 1.5" x 3" x18' My blood pressure is off the scale. Try to help the local guys out and I get this crappy workman ship.

    Sadly thats what is killing off a lot of the industries, piss poor magangement, is not noticed when times are booming. When things slow down, the poor management is now front and center. Too little too late, consumers will remember long after the good deal, of what a crappy product they really got. Now with everyting in the tank, it's X 10 scutiny on what you pay and what you get.

    Sorry about your boat man, that sucks.

    Unfortunately, it happens way too often. I pretty much build all my own stuff now, even if I don't know exactly how to do it, I figure it out or get a few tips from people whose work I have seen. I started to wonder how people can stay in business doing crap work, now it is clear why so many people are loosing jobs and going out of business.

    Same here. Same here. Had the same problem with work on my Toy Hauler. Figured that I can screw it up just as good and the money I save will get me more beer.

    Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder!

    I'm cooler now but earlier I was ripped pissed. Just bums me out that I payed top dollar. Didnt argue and here I'll be redoing this my self. I could have done it all for around 400 bux with the custom set up charge for the select Hard Wood in the size that I wanted and Carpet. Dam shame.

    When times are good I spread out my hard earned cash. Lesson Learned. Sadly I recommended them to many of my local friends. This company is still doing well. At least when I drive by them once a month they are busy. I figure I'm gunna be out of luck but I'll give them a chance.

    H20MOFO that really Sucks! Hope you get it squared away soon.

    Default That sucs

    That would send me into a tyrate. The first time I put my boat in the water one of the bunks came un-bolted from the trailer! That tought me to do a little better inspections before launching.
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!
