When we where looking at trailers I noticed sum had outside antennas and some did not as in different brands. The wildcats at the dealer I was at did not when I listened to the radio the radio seemed to pick up but once I got it home it lacks getting stations. I picked it up in PA live in MD so I don't know many radio stations up there. Would like to install one on the outside.

I have a 2013 312bhx and my am/fm antenna is on the roof. I will say though, that turning my lights on messes with my tv signal, despite the booster being on! Heck, even the 12v bathroom fan weakens the signal!

Ditto on everything you just said. The lights especially mess with the tv in the ok.

Different GVWR. Why?

I've been looking at the Wildcat 327 and 333 as potential upgrades. Love the floorplan and options available. One concern is the GVWR is only about 1500# over the dry wt. by the time you add the battery, fill propane tanks, add some options and our stuff for a 3 month winter trip to Az I would think we would be pushing the GVWR. On the other hand the Silverback 33RL has similar dry WT but GVWR is 14000# vs 12000# for the Wildcat.
Why the big difference? What is it in the construction that allow 2000# more carrying capacity. To me this becomes a serious limitation in the Wildcat line for longer term travels.

I'll be reviewing these newly posted specs with engineering in the AM! It seems to me that there may be a typo...! Sorry for any confusion!

Hey Chris, any chance you would consider posting photos of the concept fifth wheel Wildcat produced? I'm talking about the Wildcat Snow Leopard that was displayed for dealers at the open house. I'd love to see the inside with the features that were put into it. Just asking.

Obviously, the best resource is your local Wildcat dealer -- and we're very proud of the dealers we have on the ground today. But if you're stuck, please let me know your questions. If I can assist, I'll do my best to get you an answer in a timely manner or direct you towards someone who can. Wildcat's got some great people in production, service, and parts that I can count on to help me help you.

Hope we can keep this both friendly and productive!
Thanks Chris, I am looking for replacement graphic stickers for my 2004 forest river wildcat. Do you know who might be able to reproduce or have these in stock? If so please contact me by PM, Thanks, Jessie Hillis
