We bought our DW in 2010. We have had nothing but problems since day one. The inside A/C unit started having issues the following summer in 2011. They wired it all wrong. Clayton would not come fix it cause the DW warranty was out. They told me I didn't buy the extend warranty. I was never offered the extend warranty. Cause I know we would of bought in a heart beat. So on the A/C so far every year I have to call the A/C guy at least 4 times a year to come fix our A/C. I had to have an electrician to come in and rewire the whole inside A/C unit, for fire safety. I was told by the A/C guy and the electrician that in time the DW could caught fire. Now the inside A/C unit is pouring water into our cross over duct. The A/C unit is suppose to only be 4 years old. We were told we would get a side by side refrigerator with water an ice maker in the door, microwave above the stove, and a second sink in the second bathroom. Well I asked the sale guy, where my fridge, microwave and sink was he told me I only purchased the standard DW. The siding on the house as come lose, I called to them fix it, yet again I was told the warranty was out. That was six months after buying the DW. We have had to fix every pipe from leaking, Our cabinets in the kitchen are coming apart. The smoke detectors go off at all hours of the day and night even when I am not cooking. I have changed the batteries and they still go off at all hours of the day and night. I have called corporate, they would tell we... Show more

I had a bad experience with them to ! I plan to call the corporate office . I'm on a fixed income & alone. I paid 10.000 down to get a place. My daughter in law passed& my son had given me the money cause I had no place to live. There was nothing wrong with my money ! It plenty wrong with the way the did me
. First I didn't get the vaulted ceilings & carpet was wrong color. They brought the trailer out with out contactinig me tomb there. 2 weekslater iI got the key to go in & it wasn't right. They agreed to hook septic & left the PVC pipes on top ofthe ground with a block to prop togo ala little down hill. I was told in front of my ex that ! If u don't sign off on this trailer today ! Its a Repo. I didn'tknow what else to do so I signned. To me that was a threat! Take it like it is or loose 10.000 dollars. All I want is my money back they didn't want to do that. I want to talk to someone who can help me. Now I'm having to b in a 14×66 ! 40.000 dollar trailer that I'm not happy with. Pray the lord will work this out for me. Now I'm trying to get someone to take over the payments. I'll never b happy in it cause its not what I walked into.please let me know if u think I can do anything to get my money back. I was lied to & feel they let me down

We're in a mess also, why not go through their contract arbitration and if that doesn't get what you need that should allow you to proceed with a lawyer I would think. Because if you go through all steps and aren't getting the results you need, then you should be free to move to the next step. (lawyer)
do NOT sign anything from Clayton or any sales people, no matter what they tell you! Refuse to sign, even if they tell you they will beat you up or whatever may be. They'll say anything to trick you into signing your rights away, even if it's a home walk though, do not sign anything until they fix it to your liking.. Goodluck, post back with how things go.
