That may have been true with early Quigley's, but our 2011 has been solid (and was bought used with 157k on the odo). From day one, even my wife felt comfortable driving 75+ on the highway with one hand on the steering wheel.
Our only issues have been regular wear/maintenance items like a worn ball joint and a worn wheel bearing. Considering it was a fleet vehicle used for oil field servicing, as confirmed by the coating of dirt and sand both inside and outside the vehicle when we bought it, I have no qualms with the Quigley conversion other than the known issue with limited travel on the front axle before hitting the bumpstop (easily remedied with new/longer springs).
We were on a cross-country road trip when the worn wheel bearing was diagnosed, so I had it replaced at a shop. The mechanic commented that it was the beefiest setup he had seen in his 17 years as a mechanic, and he had no difficulty sourcing a unit bearing the same day in "Up North" Wisconsin (other than price--fair warning that OEM unit bearings are PRICEY!).
Just had to comment, as back when I started researching vans I was wary of Quigley due to comments made on this board. Now that we've owned our van for 4.5 years and many miles of adventures, I have to say that it's unfair to propagate this stereotype and apply it equally to all Quigley's.
