Would love to hear how your rig performs and if you get reliable after sale assistance. The rock wood sure is a handsome rig and the weights advertised surprised me.
Personally, I searched every light weight 5er, and the fit and finish on the Rockwood/Flagstaff's were easily the winner. You just got more for your money and based on the feedback on this forum, they stand by their product.
As far as pin weight issues, so far (other than wait time on order) it is the only issue. Tundra pulls and stops just as if my 20ft travel trailer was still back there. Air bags straightened out my ride and now it all good.
Best part of my 8282ws is the big living area......
