I can understand people thinking that when they read my post about PT.

Honestly, this is the best tt I've owned (total of 5), the best customer service I have experienced and only one other dealer has treated me as well.

Where's the posts regarding frame bending on rear kitchen layouts? I've never have heard of that issue before, but would like to read any info available on it.

To the OP...you can see how opinionated we all can be defending our choice in a camper layout. You need need to spend some time at the dealer in campers evaluating layouts and make your own choice based on your wants and needs.

Good luck.

Dave

I am referring to a Rockwood 8285ws layout which is closest in size to the 8280ws rear kitchen layout

Well dezolen, Rugged Brown's 2011 Flagstaff 8528 CKWS is the same size.
As is mine.

I lurked for almost a year reading posts about layout and construction. RKs were high on my list. We both wanted a large rear window with two easy chairs in the rear. I never could warm up to the television placement of most RL models. Storage was also a huge issue for us. Many TT layouts with a lot of living space lacked storage. When we finally walked through a Lacrosse 301RLS, we knew right away it was different. We could easily accept the tradeoffs. It has the large window with chairs. The television placement is great. The 12 cubic ft fridge, fireplace, and large storage is great! I appreciate The construction and plumbing details also. We still have not found a TT we like better. Make sure the tradeoffs are the ones you can live with. Every layout has them. I can say without reservation that Prime Time makes an extraordinary unit!

dretired, no doubt your Cougar is a very nice camper, but is it really only 7700 lbs dry? I think that might be at the upper end of what the OP could pull with his Ecoboost.

Yes, It really is 7,700 lbs dry ..at least thats what both the storm door and front left corner stickers say. We (the 2 of us ) will keep the weight down as much as we can.. An F150( super cab) eco boost, with MAX Trailer tow pkg, max Payload pkg, ( dont forget those towing mirrors ) 3,73 rear gears and a 8ft box can give around 11,300 lbs of towing capability and a payload of close to 3,000 lbs...
