Rockwood vs Flagstaff

It seems that there are many more Rockwood owners than Flagstaff. I was just curious why, since they are the same campers with the only differences being colour schemes, and the name badge of course.
We ordered our Flagstaff before I realised they were the same, but are very pleased, as it is a beautiful unit and the interior colours are awesome.
Is there any specific reason why people are buying Rockwoods? Thanks.

There are most likely more dealers handling the Rockwood brand name than the ןןɐʇsƃɐןɟ brand name.

More dealers = more sales.

I guess I'll just have to be satisfied with owning something that is unusual.

Well, there are no Rockwood dealers near me, but I do have a great Flagstaff dealer.

In my part of the world, NC, there seems to be more Flagstaffs that Rockwoods, of course I am near one of the best FLagstaff dealers in the country, Tom Johnson Camping Center, Marion and Charlotte, NC.

We have 3 flagstaff dealers within an easy drive and yet I see hardly any Flagstaff units on the road and even on our 6000km cross country saw only a handfull and not one V-Lite or Windjammer other than ours. The most pleantiful unit of all was the ROO's, we saw a couple dozen of them. On one night at the KOA in Barrie there were 5 of them at the site.

Same here in Jax! Dick Gore's RV world handles Flagstaff, not Rockwood. We love our Flagstaff! No difference other than cosmetic changes in the 2 brands. Randy
