LATEST COMMENTS ABOUT THIS MANUFACTURER
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerPatty O CamperNoticed a lot of folks looking for an owners manual for their R-Vision Trailer. What most if not all manufacturers do is give you a vague booklet with almost no real useful information, but they do give you a seemingly endless supply of manufacture's manuals for every component in your unit. (These include your A/C, water heater, furnace, refrigerator, electric panel, kitchen range, etc, etc, etc.....a very big pile of paper. All the parts ans appliances in every RV, travel trailer, motor home etc seem to come from the same group of manufacturers that cater to the RV makers. Therefore no matter what you buy they are all very similar. Quality differences vary from manufacturer to manufacturer in materials and fit and finish. No matter what brand you research you will find complaints. Remember these traveling mini-homes take quite a beating bouncing down the highways. I did notice many "soft-floor" issues. In order to keep the weight down thin light weight materials are used....add water from leaks and you have soft floors etc. it is the nature of the beast. The longer you own one of these traveling mini homes the better a handyman you will become.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerB. C.We just bought a 2004 trail lite travel trailer used. Model no. 8306S. Can you please help us find a manual? No instruction manuals came with the trailer. Thanks
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerClaudia WolffI'm seeing a lot of folks needing a manual. We have an 02 8263S R-Vision Trail Lite. I'd be happy to scan the manual and email it to folks that need it. No charge, email requests to seawolff3@msn.com
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerCallilinaHave a 2004 30QBSS and LOVE IT! Not perfect but none of the water issues mentioned here. All systems work and work well. Great trailer.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerRickOne of the worst campers I have ever owned. Water got in somewhere and damaged the floor. The floor became very spongy. Checking into it further I found alot of damage, rotting floor and no structure to replace with new floor. I will have several hours in repairing this mess. It's to bad these fly by night companies continue to get away with selling this JUNK. Kept in a machine shed all winter. So there was no snow damage. Talked to two dealers, they both told us the repairs would cost more than the camper is worth. Can't get in contact with R Vision. This would be a bad choice in a camper purchase.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerShellyVery happy with the trailer. Super light; can tow behind lighter vehicles; bought the lay out that would work best for us. Put a wax finish on the outside every year and keep it parked on concrete for less exposure to moisture. Finish inside still looks brand new and we inspect twice a year for any damp spots...including underneath.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerCali~jennI am researching trailers with plans on purchasing next year. This one had me excited since I need less weight for the type of camping we do. After reading these complaints I am starting to rethink my plan. :(
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerV. DeWittI like many of you have been looking for manual for our 2003 22' Trail Lite manual and was finally successful and finding someone who could help me. I went to R-Vision online Support and sent a request to rvtech@navistarrv.com and they were nice enough to send me a scanned pdf of the manual. Evidently the company that made our campers is out of business and this is why it is has been so difficult to find any owner manuals online.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerwilbur carpWe have the 2008 QBSS 30. It came with a slow leak in the plumbing under the bathroom vanity. It seeped under the tile of the last several years to the point of now making the floor in the bathroom out to in front of the stove spongy and discolored. It's in the shop now, and they repairs are estimated at around $4000.00. Because it was a slow leak from a cracked elbow joint, insurance isn't going to cover it. I wonder if Trail Cruiser will cover a manufacturing flaw? (he types with sarcastic snerk... )
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerDon GunderI have a 2006 Trail Sport 27QBSS travel trailer that needs slide out cable replacement. How do you get into the upper wall next to the microwave/stove to replace cable?
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerFredI purchase a NEW 2003 in 2004 26 QBH Trail-Cruiser, and now the bedroon floor is ready to step thur it, and another spot next to the bed, and door frame & door step is not mounted to frame,and I can't use the steps anymore "UNSAFE" and the floor is unsafe. The floor which is form and very thin plywood, very thin & very lite. Very Poor design. Any body else having the same problems with the floors? email me please at supplyfire@aol.com

Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerVernWhere can I find a wood bathroom door for a 2006 travel lite bantam? It's 24" x 62" verns@shaw.ca
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerDebbieI am looking for the manuals for a 2002 19B. Bought 2nd hand,no manuals!
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerNellie V.I own a trail lite bantam 17B hybrid. The floor is discolored, and in looking at the linoleum manual, I read that if you left the mini blinds open, the sun will discolor the floor. Nuf said. And I have soft spots in the floor too. I like the size for travelling.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerBarbLooking for an owner's manual for a 2003 Trail-Lite 7211 - basically any of the 7000 series have the same owner's manuals, from what I can tell. barjulian@yahoo.com
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerLibrarianWe bougth a 2007 Trailite Rwagon toyhauler in 2008. We have had very good service from it so far. Our toys inlcude a Polaris Ranger, a golf cart and a 2001 Harley Ultra Classic. All will fit in the toyhauler/s 9 and a half foot garage (one at a time of course). We pull it with a 2005 Dodge RAM 1500 quad cab Hemi. The half ton truck has done well with it all loaded with toys and heading into the hills of eastern Kentucky. For those of you who want owner manuals, there isn't one. I got a packet from the dealer with owner manuals for all of the appliances. As for spongy floors, we have not seen this problem, but I suspect that it is because our toyhauler is built with much heavier duty floors.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerGeorgia NajarWe bought a 2010 R-Vision trailer. The layout is wacky. The bathroom door opens into the front of the stove. I miss my '70 Kitt Companion with all of the storage space.
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerTammyOBought a brand new 2011 RVision Super Sport. We are on our second set of tires and will need to replace them before we hit the road again. The tires are wearing on the inside. From what we can tell the Lippert axles are defective. The dealer told us to call Monaco, they told us to call Lippert, Lippert says they don't do recalls and they don't warranty axles for RVision trailers. Buyers beware. Has anyone else experienced this? Right now I'm trying to get the dealer to fix the problem. Still waiting for a call back
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerJoseph BAs with others comments here I have privately purchased a 2002 26' R Vision Trail Lite 5th Wheel and need an owners manual. Have tried on line with no luck. Can anyone help me? Email is oswaldjb@bell.net
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerpetie reply to Shelly flloorShelley : My husband and I were going to sell our 1999 Bantam Trail Lite, but decided that we needed to fix the soggy spot by the bathroom door!!! O what a mistake!! Does any one have suggestion on how to fix from here!!! We could not believe that even foam rots UGH!!! help we have it on bare floor and have a small pin hole that we can see the pavement below!! What stinks is that it is covered every winter and still this happened. Any suggestion would be helpful!
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerpetie if it ahs foam like most do, Get a few cans of the spray foam, fill it up not to the top but about 4-5 inches below the floor line, It may have alum cross sections if it does get some rivets lay your sub flooring down the fasten it to the alum, then if your using tiles get some liquid nail spred it on each tile press it firmly down to the flooring let set for a couple of days and you should be ok, I have done 3 of my R-Visons , and now a propblem with the bed room floor, spongy on both sides on the bed, And a tad past the bath room door its a Trail Cruiser 27 ft w/ sofa slide. Many of these have had the same propblems, No leaks what so ever, Glue board and the foam they use, Most will do this after 5-9 yrs . Not smelly or rot or mold just spongy when your walking on it, I know it wont fall though but if you ever want to trade it or sell its will throw a red flag to the buyer, Thought about getting in the storage compartment drill a hole from bottom up not though the floor, And spray foam where its spongy I have heard this will do the job, BUT if the foam has broken down dont see how new foam would raise the spongy part, Oh well worth a try or lay plywood on top of the floor and retile, I know this will resolve this issue, Happy Camping

WE HAVE ONWED 50 CAMPERS AND NEVER SEEN THIS ISSUE DEALER SAYS ITS THE GLUE TRIED TO GET THE COLOR BACK TO NORMAL THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WILL NEED NEW TILE reply to thrs52@aol.com thank you
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerDarron SMy wife and I had a 1999 26-foot Trail Lite, which turned out to be the worst trailer we have owned. The frame bent within six months. The black water tank would never drain properly. Trail Lite's customer service reps told us the problems were our fault because we used the trailer too much, and refused to honor the warranty. The trailer fell apart in less than three years.

Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerCamper guyWe bought a used '05 30' Trail Lite with the back bed, front couch, dinette slide, 2 stools, etc. It's been great. I was worried about quality and a few things aren't perfect but what other brand of RV has a 30' trailer that I could tow with my GMC Sierra 4.8 liter? None. We're very happy.

Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerScottI just bought 1998 Bantam Lite 17 foot trailer. It was suppose to be in great shape, but found mold and dampness in front nose. Went to tow it to the rv repair and the bottom panel popped out of bottom seam. The strip of wood it was stapled to is rotten. How would I fix it? (Other then sell it)
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerbrian&LisaWe bought a used 1998 26ft Traillight. We have towed it to Alaska, South Dakota, and many Northern camping trips. Also had to live in it for 3 months while our house was being built, we have had NO problems and love our trailer. We recommend buying this brand to anyone we meet. We can't say enough good things about this brand. To all the people who have had issues it's really unfortunate but I can tell you Don't turn to a jayco because they are just over priced junk.

Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerThe Wood TinkerThey do not offer owners manuals....I had a Bantam and it didn't come with one either. Best bet is to go Camping World, etc... and a standard manual.

Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerP.D.-HoustonJust purchased a 2006 TV-30BHS Trail-Lite TrailVision 32' at auction. How do we go about getting an owners manual?
Re: R-Vision Trail-Lite travel trailerReg & Gailwe own a 26 ft Trail Lite travel trailer..... Although we like the light weight, there sure needs to be lots of improvements to be made..One annoying problem is access to the water pump...Ours had a fabric door with a zipper and you guessed it!!..The zipper didn't even last a season...The dealer had a good old Canadian solution by applying duct tape over the opening...lasted one trip on a rainy road as you might imagine.. The dealer service in Brandon is horrible... The tailight blew out and after several attempts to buy a new light I gave up and sourced it a another trailer company.... Presently I am making one from a scrap piece of metal and a piano hinge.. Simple enough but too complicated for R Visio I guess to design something better...Better still...Make the pump accessible from inside the unit instead of crawling under the unit... Interior valances, one by one all fell off from the way they were fastened on the flimsy interior walls.. Other than that we love it and I guess once we get all the defects in design repaired it will probably be ours for many years... It really tows like a breeze with my Dodge Ram with a 5.7 hemi.....
