I understand. I usually try and take care of things when the opportunity presents itself rather than wait for that "best" time to do it.

I just took up a new personal hobby that I haven't done in years. It's time consuming and may even take up some of my camping time.

Right now I'm on a 2 week break. I had my left knee scoped out yesterday. Of course I will be receiving work related phone calls and emails. I don't ever seem to get a complete break from work.

Good luck on your new job. I hope your daughter's move goes smoothly and tell your son I said "Thanks" for his service to our country.

If I can help you with any info on any tt, just give me a shout.

Have a good one, I am.

In general I like units without slideouts. Just one less thing to go wrong when I least want something to go wrong.

THs are nice just because you have a whole wall that you can drop down. That makes it easier to tote oversized equipment, even if it really does not qualify as a 'toy.' It also makes for a convenient covered cargo hauler. The ramp also makes a nice patio in the Spring and Fall and allows the infirmed a wheelchair ramp.

Downside, they are heavier.

Flagstaff rigs come off the same assembly line as Rockwood rigs do. twin brands with the exact same materials and items. just different decor.

also, there are way more Rockwood dealers in the country, therefore Rockwood prices are better than Flagstaff, generally.
an example is that RVW and RVDirect, the two top internet dealers, both sell Rockwood. and their prices are considered to be the lowest in the country.

Your rationale was not evident in my case. I priced the comparable Flagstaff against 2 Rockwood dealers and the Rockwood dealers couldn't match the Flagstaff dealer. I also got a quote from RV wholesalers on a comparable Rockwood and although the price was the better, it wasn't feasible considering the transportation cost. I live in Nova Scotia. Shop around and go with what you feel best with, even if it is a PT. Just kidding Gary.

Have had mine 15 months now. Camped over 100 nights this year, with 40 of those traveling through 9 states, 18 campgrounds and 4,700 towing miles. Have had zero problems so far. I take that back, I did have a string break on a shade.

Obviously, I'm partial to Wildcats...

Let me know if I can answer any questions about our eXtraLite travel trailers.
