HarleyduoLooking to buy a Chalet Arrowhead or Alpine for less than $7,000. Retired teacher would like the ease of setting up and hauling. Selling my teardrop due to double knee replacement and difficulty getting in and out. Contact Harleyduo@hotmail.com. Prefer a unit that's been garage stored in the off season and must have A/C and a furnace.
LynnWe're interested in buying a used Chalet LTW that has one bed, sink, 2 burner stove & fridge. We live on Vancouver Island and are willing to travel to the rest of B.C. Email: lynnkitchen@shaw.ca - 21/07/2013
MarkBought new Chalet XL1930 in 2007. No bath, AC or skylights. Have used it 4-5 times every year. Our main criteria when we bought it was a small, light trailer with a permanent queen size bed. My spouse and I are both 6 feet tall. Generally pleased but some issues have developed: 1. The awning is poorly designed and was improperly installed. I fixed it myself with little help from the factory. 2. The roof panels are delaminating/bubbling a bit. No leaks. 3. Wiring connections sloppy. 4. Some of the foam weather-stripping is coming loose. 4. Faucet valve ceramics froze and cracked even though the system was drained. 5. Tires rubbed on the inside of the plastic fender wells. I put on slightly narrower tires. 6. With the top folded down there is a 3/4 inch gap between the weather stripping on the front roof panel and the side of the camper. This allows entry of water spray, rocks, bugs, etc. 7. Very cheap plastic fittings for the sink drain plumbing. In summary, I would look at other options, but still am fairly satisfied.
Russ MBought a Chalet TS116 back in June, 2012 (new). I really enjoy the space that this camper gives you. Have had many problems with quality control..fantastic fan, A/C, hot water tank all didn't work from day one. Window spider webbed one month after purchase (caused by heat on a hot day), would of cost me over $800 to fix but the dealer footed the cost for the window, I had to take care of the labor. Now I have found a water leak in the ceiling around the fan...what next?

Shane in CaliforniaBEWARE OF CHALET! In 07-2012 I bought a BRAND NEW TS116 truck camper and am having the WORST EXPERIENCE. Sure it LOOKS nice, but after taking it out a few times I have come to regret my purchase. Things like using a cold water only hose for connecting sink to holding tank baffles me. It just burst when i put hot water through it- flooding the floor! On the hose itself it says cold water use only. The power running to the 12v stereo is crossed with a 120volt line somewhere, because anytime i turn the generator on it blows the fuse on the stereo AND in the main fuse panel. Now for the biggie- THE FOAM USED AS INSULATION IN THE FLOOR HEATING DUCTS IS MELTING DUE TO THE HEAT FROM FURNACE. The foam has a reflective tin foil skin- but apparently it wasn't enough to prevent the EPS foam to melt! Now 1 of the floor registers is partially blocked due to these 'planks' of insulation foam distorting and warping and melting. And the smell is wonderful too when furnace is on... Am waiting to see how Chalet responds to this. I will give an update. OH- my camper cost 50k. Not cheap.
FredI am 60 years old now and will be retired and will be full timing traveling the country in a few years, living as cheap as I can and saving my money so I can start a coffee shop someplace as a layed back retirement job. The Charlet was on a veryshort list of rv's I was considering when I learned they were having proiblems with leaks and wall delamination. What a disappointment!!! Speaking of leaks I'm learning even high value rv's have too much of that problem. Really thinking my best bet may be a van camper or even a tent. Finally, want to know how rv manufacterers can double/trible their orders? Simple: offer a two year general warrenty and a specific five year warrenty against leaks and wall/ceiling/floor delamination. I believe anyone paying from twenty grand on up deserve at least that much!
Dissapointed Chalet customerAn update on the previous post for fairness. Through further negotiations with Chalet, they have offered to replace the roof at their factory for $875 and a 90 day warranty.
Dissapointed Chalet customer We purchased a Chalet LTW late 2009. Utility wise, we love the trailer. Towing it with our VW Jetta TDI. Setting it up is a piece of cake. That is the good news. But, within the first year the forward roof section started to delaminate creating a very noticeable bubble. The trailer was still under warranty and Chalet did repair it. Now a little over a year afterwards the rear roof panel is starting to do the same thing. I have been in contact with Chalet and they say they will replace it for $1800. And this note. In which I quote"I take the most pride in my position here in giving the best customer service possible. At this time with this issue my hands are tied as I wouldn't be here much longer if I was to give away a new roof panel installed. At this point it doesn't sound like there is anything I can do to rectify the situation. If there is please pass it along to Chris & myself." That is our experience with Chalet's customer service. It is very disappointing to have a three year old trailer fail like this.
