DH and I bought the 2014 30WIKSS (Island kitchen, bathroom at the tongue) about 4 months ago.

WE LOVE IT!

We have a 2013 30wfkss v lite and love it. We pull it with an F-150 Eco super cab 3:73 electric lock rear end if ever needed and has all factory tow packages. Equalizer 4 wdh. Spent 36 days touring WY, ID, MT Pulls extremely well in the mountains and other wise. We love the front kitchen. So do all visitors who look at it. Just the 2 of us and it is a perfect fit. Could not find a layout we liked better.

(smile) and we found the Island kitchen to be perfect for two....doesn't matter that the bathroom is "en suite" and one must walk through the bedroom to get to it....we've told all the kids and kin "it only sleeps two".

We own a Windjammer (the Rockwood version of the Flagtaff V) 3008W, front kitchen model and absolutely love it. It feels more like a home, with the kitchen separate from the living room/dining room.

We initially pulled it with a Chevy 1500 with a heavy-duty tow package. The 1/2 ton does OK on level ground, but I felt more comfortable with a bigger truck when we took it through the Smokie Mountains on our first trip, so we traded for a 3/4 ton Chevy 2500, and it pulls like it wasn't even back there.

I highly recommend the front kitchen model, but whatever you choose, congratulations.

Agreed x2. We have found this floor plan to be perfect for two people.

So far my 2009 Dodge CC 1500 w/3:92 rear axle handles the 30WFKSS just fine. I say "so far" because up to this point all of my towing with this trailer has been in CT, MA, NY, PA, OH and IN (I towed it to the 2012 and 2013 FROG Rallies in Goshen) - which means I haven't experienced towing it through the mountains out west. Yes, there are some long steep climbs in PA - which the Dodge handles just fine - but I would imagine that the climbs out west would probably be a bit more challenging. Maybe someone out west who tows this same trailer with a 1/2 ton TV can comment?
