I've had a little Fleetwood Mallard for a few years and it's been bullet proof. It's time for a bigger unit. I really like aluminum siding and the price point on the Willdwood 26TBSS. This is a 29 ft aluminum sided, super slide with three bunks in the rear. Has the U shaped dinette too. Out here in CA its about $17,999 compared to the Passport 2650 at $26,000 we've been looken at. Of course the Passport salesman says the Wildwoods are junk compared to the Passport but you know how that goes. We live where it is warm and stay very local 95% of the time, point being I don't care about super insulation heated tanks insulated underbelly etc.
Does anyone have a Wildwood. How has it held up? How many pounds will the bunks hold. The Passport has a 300 lb sticker but the Wildwood doesn't have a sticker by the bunk on the model I looked at.
My other concern is why such a low sticker price on such a nice model. I know I'm only 30 minutes from where they are manufactured and it is the so called, "dated aluminum sided style", but structurally is it pretty sound? I'm a tinkerer and have overhauled just about everything in my current trailer, plumbing, roof seams, fridg, busted step welds etc. The little issues that all travel trailers have don't get me down one bit, just don't want to deal with anything major like the box separating from the frame or something
. Thanks again for all the replies, Mike
