We had our Catalina for a dozen years, and while I do agree that it was not the highest in some finishes, the problems we encountered were not trim problems, we had to replace a CAC, and got a bad batch of diesel that ruined the fuel pump. Yes we had to glue a couple of cabinet doors, then clamp them, but that was a 15 minute job. We bought it with 15,000 miles on it and sold it with 65,000. We wintered in it every year, as well as several cross country trips. We do not regret having bought the Coachmen as opposed to having bought an older more expensive brand, it was in like new condition when we bought it, and it was in almost similar condition when we sold it.
However, don't forget sometime after the last economic downturn it was taken over by the Forest River Group, so I have no idea what effect that has had on the brand.
