This whole thread has become stupid. I thought the whole point of it was for people to discuss their Arkonik experiences good or bad. All we are talking about is leaking trucks.

I notice no one is chiming in about who went to England to check out the facility.

John did you go? You have been ripping a few people about how Andy has gone above and beyond with bringing in help. Wonder why you are defending them and to be honest if you did go or Andy told you this stuff it is still only one side of the story.

I would like to hear about the production facility and build quality for sure though. They can do a dog and pony show for you but it is meaningless. The only people that can talk are the customers who have given Andy money. Warranty, build time, responsiveness to issues, etc are just as important as the quality of the build.

Guys. The thread has strayed off course. As I said to Arkonik, the leaking is excessive, however, I was taking them to task because they installed wall to wall carpeting that is glued in place. To remedy is a major job and they STRONGLY suggested that I not remove the carpeting.
I also purchased the option of rubber mats on top of the carpets. The rest should be obvious.
I was advised (and this is typical) that the installed carpet is "water resistant"

Jonesy, Lav and I went.... We will post our thoughts in a separate thread because as you've said this one has gotten stupid and off topic.

Curious what it looks like under the carpets. I would pull them up. You don't want carpet anyhow except maybe on seat boxes and wheel well areas. Definitely not in the footing area and or load space area.

I agree, seems many enjoy using the forum to exercise their "sh!t stirring" prowess with pure speculation. I have also been to Arkonik, yet seeing the amount being posted by those who have never even set eyes on any of their trucks is astonishing. We have a large population of armchair quarterbacks on this site but I am sure we all knew that. We all know the members who take the high road and focus on the positive, you know the ones who are largely absent from this thread because they don't even have first hand information in which to formulate an opinion. Let's be honest, the negativity at times becomes a bit much. If you could "poop" on for sale ad's do you honestly think there would be any posted for sale?

Yes I know I will get the "go sing kumbayah somewhere else" responses but I know I am not alone in my opinion. Most just can't be bothered to say it knowing the aggressive and defensive responses they will receive.

The one question I would like to see answered by each of the three visitors is a simple yes or no answer. Would you buy a truck from Arkonik?

I'm glad their facility is nice and they are learning the proper way to do things. Again it all means nothing. Berkshire had a nice facility I'm sure.

It all comes down to whether or not customers are satisfied. So far it doesn't seem that way. If Andy did indeed sell 50 trucks to the usa and 40 people are happy (still not a high percentage) he should get those people to post.
