Default Leaks and Mold ruined our RV

We purchased a 2011 Elkmont Bunkhouse 24' in 2011 from a Dealer in Ohio and when it arrived we noticed stain markings and water inside as well as rusted hardware on a brand new never used RV. We contacted the dealer who assured us it was never used ( still had plastic on everything inside) and it had NEVER leaked.
We took it out for a maiden trip. No rain so no leaks that we could report. Then the camper was stored for the winter up her in Mass. We had it covered and protected and winterized. When we got it back in the spring we noticed more leaks roof, front by the queen bed and mold growth.
We started communication with the dealer in ohio who referred us to the manufacturer in TN. Ed Lytle had then started working with us on the leaking problem.
They took the Trailer back to the Factory in late 2012 and we did not get it back until 2013. They had to seal the entire camper and rebuild much of the inside. The camper FINALLY comes back to us with over $500 out of pocket expense as we had to pay for them to transport it back to use part way!
We go to use the camper and same thing! Leaking all over the place. Water damage continues to get worse. We continue the process and finally last Fall they have us bring in to a local dealer on cape cod who sealed it with some kind of 3M product. The camper continues to leak! Worse than before. Leaking so bad their is now think layers of mold on 70% of the surfaces, rotting wood pieces, mattresses no good and hundreds of dollars in damage to our personal items. We notified Trailmanor that the problem persists and now we have water FLOWING in around the door and all windows in addition to back bunk areas and front bed. We put in dehumidifiers, and have cleaned it over 5 times this summer alone with bleach and mold cleaners. We are now once again trying to get this resolved by Trailmanor. At this point the camper we are told is not safe to even drive! The floor is rotting and there are bolts from the chasis pushing through the inside flooring! The mold levels are so high and thick layers visable through out after anytime of rain storm that we are also told it is unsafe health wise to dwell in it. A total loss for us! WE are devastated. We again have contacted Trailmanor and now Ed says it is out of his hands!!! The owners need to deal with us. We are now seeking legal counsel about this. I am wondering if others out there are dealing with the same issues and have any advice for us.
