Thanks Tim966. I am a member of the Wildcat Forum...I will check out your thread.

PS...I have a typo in my "name". I put 282RKS instead of X for the model #. Oh well...

We own a Wildcat 24RG ( 29', rear kitchen) and luv it. Because we live in Iowa and have the Wildcat parked in Seattle, we've decided to buy a 28RKX ( same floor plan as the 282RKX) to park in Texas for our Snowbird trips. It's a terrific floor plan and we'll be making the purchase next Spring. I know the units are made in different factories so that's something I can't comment on. Our 24RG Wildcat Maxx has been very reliable, hence the reason we're buying a second Wildcat.

A few annoyances but love our 282RKX

For the most part, we love our Wildcat 282RKX. There are a few annoyances though.
-Can't get into the fridge unless the slideout is extended.
-Even when the slideout is extended, the pantry cupboard door won't open all the way.
-The fridge is on the right side of the stove. If you are right-handed, it makes cooking really difficult.
-Have to manually light the pilot for the oven even though the burners have a pizzio ignition.
-Only two drawers in the cabinet under the sink. There are three drawers in the "L" part of the cabinet but you have to open the cabinet door to get to them. They are small as well.
-No place to put our satellite receiver. For now it sits on the floor in front of the Ent center.
-Only one 12v outlet and it is in the bedroom on the side of the medicine cabinet. There should be at least one in the ent. center.
-Getting into bed on the right side is next to impossible because the bed is too close to the sliding closet doors. Getting into the left side of the closet is next to impossible for the same reason.
-No nightstand on the left side of the bed which means there is no place for my wife to put her glasses and a drink.
-No furnace vent in the toilet room. Which means the toilet seat is close to freezing if you have to use it in the middle of the night.
-Drawer under the couch won't stay closed while traveling.
-We opted for two rocker/recliners instead of the stock rocking chairs or J-couch. The recliners are not that comfortable (headrest is too big) and are too big for the area that they are in.
-We are constantly having to replace fuses for the landing gear and rear stabalizers.
-If you turn the porch light on with the remote, you can't turn it off from the control panel.
-Lots of nails from the carpet tack strip poke through the carpet. Walking barefoot is like walking through a mine field.

The list sounds long but keep in mind these are just annoyances. We love our 282RKX. The things we like about it far outweigh the annoyances.

We have a 2014 282RKX that we pick up about 4 weeks ago and had used it only twice. No problem with the kitchen as for things moving around just pack it tight and used rubber underlay on the shelves. We have the L-shape sofa which gives us more storage for things like water and extra appliances. Over all we love it. Just one problem that we are having is bucking on uneven roads. Need to adjust the weight and the dealer is going to make some adjustment with the pin. Looking forward to more camping next year.
