Interestingly, my Aviator didn't come with Tow Master tires like yours did. Mine are Power King Towmax STR tires. Don't know if they are any better but I haven't had any problems as of yet. We are heading out Thursday morning for South Dakota, Yellowstone and the Tetons. Busy loading up and getting excited!

[QUOTE=Blackhat6mike;902997]The more I see and hear about other TTs, and the more time I spend doing mods on my WF, the happier I am we bought this great unit. Yep, it had bugs as all new units do, but what you get in innovative construction materials and design far surpasses the nit-pick upfront problems.
This is my 4th RV and I couldn't be happier now that I've gone full solar with inverter. The DW is even happy.....and that is saying a lot!!! She fell in love with it on sight and like me, is still learning all the neat things it will do, not to mention it's a dream to tow, just tongue heavy. [4 x 125 amp hr batteries up front]

I ended up going a different direction and bought an I-GO. Not nearly as cool but I know it's all aluminum and vacuum bonded glass. I doubt this one will be my long term rig but it will suffice for the time being. Hopefully I will find a nice properly built WF in time.

On a side note I am going solar to help me boondock it and your write up has been hugely helpful, thank you!

New and Used Forest River Aviator RVs for Sale - RVTrader.com

These are the only two I know of if they are still available. The Wright Flyer in Georgia is a really great deal.

Aviator Wright Flyer

The only thing the three "White Coffin" Aviators have in common with the "Original" Flyers is the shape and company and nothing else.
The original WFs have 5" block styrofoam insulated walls, no wood structure, full panoramic windows up front, composite floor, fireplace, etc, etc. A list way too long to post.
If I wasn't fortunate enough to already own one, I would wait till I could find a used one [original production unit]. I've owned 4 units and none compare to this unit.
As far as buying one of the last three, I wouldn't touch them at any price. IMHO

Just took a look at the Aviator Wright Flyer in Byran GA at $29,000. If I didn't already own one, I would run, not walk to get that unit. You won't see that price ever again, IMHO. It was one of the last ones made if I'm not mistaken. I bought #1919 and it was one of the last three in the country for sale. Their unit is #1923

At that price you could have a "his and hers". Now that's something to think about!
