When we were mulling over moving from our 25' TT to our first 5th Wheel, we really wanted to stay in the 30-31' range, and we wanted to be able to use our Chevy Silverado 2500HD--so weight was an issue. We love the Cardinals, but they were all too heavy and a bit big...so, we ended up with a 2012 Rockwood 8288WS. We debated a couple of different floor plans, they are all quite nice, and since they are Signature UltraLite we were in a good range for our tow vehicle. We had to go 2 hours away to look at some Rockwood models, and although they didn't have an 8288 on the lot, we liked the others a lot and special ordered ours. I would say look at them...and the Rockwood and Flagstaff are identical--just put different labels on at the factory and tend to send the Flagstaff to West points, although we're in CO and ordered the Rockwood!! We love it!
