New Forest River 5th wheel is ready for pick-up!

We got the call this morning that our new Forest River 5th wheel is ready for pick up at RV Wholesalers. We are scheduled to pick it up on Valentine's Day. We have checked the weather forecast and hope we will be there between cold fronts which might bring snow/ice. I hope to post pictures next week!

Hi fives----------

Congrats on your new Rockwood. I purchased from RVWholesalers also.
Very good buying experience, would do it all over again. I also picked mine up on 27 Jan of 2011. Was lots of snow on the ground, 24. Spent our first night local, slept very good.
A word of advice, If there is any signs of snow or SALT ON THE ROADS , Make sure you pressure wash the under carriage, wheels, axles when you get home to remove any salt residue. I used a chemical by the name of
"KLEAN STRIP" PHOSPHORIC PREP & ETCH from Lowe's or Home Depot paint department. I used a pump up bug sprayer and a plastic hand sprayer to apply the chemical, removes the surface rust and inhibits it. Then I used RUST OLEM Paint for a good paint coat.

Before you leave RVWHolesalers, have them to put just enough water in the fresh water tank to flush the john, turn on the tank heaters if freezing
while you are getting to above freezing temps. Take queen sheets, blankets, pillows with you. We even took our coffee pot, coffee, bottle water to make coffee in the morning. Good luck.


I know you will love your new ROCKWOOD, they are the best for the $$$$
Again Congratulations.

BY THE WAY, What model did you get?

Congrats! I have also purchased from RVwholesalers and am really intersted on how it goes with your purchase and experience. We pick up our Puma Unleashed on March 1st.

I am also having them install the 5th wheel hitch in my short bed Ford as well.

I got a 2013 Puma Unleashed 356QLB. I have pulled a 29 ft bumper pull camper before but not a 5th wheel.
