New to this forum

I am a newbie here. I am considering a purchase of a used 295RSX 2014 or 2015 within the next year. I was wondering how the new frame system(NXG) is working out? In this model what other items should I look out for that may need addressed?
Thanks in advance
Steve

Hi Steve, Welcome! Glad you're here.

Can't offer an opinion on the frame system, it's brand new and doesn't have much of a track record yet.

You'll be extremely luck to find a used 295 RSX. Most people that buy don't trade that soon. And then those that do would have to have had a 295 RSX. Good luck.
Good idea though as you could save some $$$ buying used.

True that. As I understand it, the 295RSX has only been on the road less than 15 months.

I don't know much about how the NXG frame is holding up but I know it opened up a bunch of basement space. The NXG floor of the basement is about a foot lower vs the Lippert frame. It really opens up the storage area.

godus could be right about finding the used unit. Wildcat started using the NXG frame in July, 2013.

I want to thank all of you for welcoming me to your site and also for you info and insight. My DW (Cathy) and I fulltime in an sob. When we decide to set up a home base again, I will start to look for one. I will be in no rush. I also will step back down from a Chevy D/A dually to a single wheel. Our sob is 38' long and a very comfortable unit but I prefer about 30 to 32' since we love state parks. I have read good things about Wilcat units but I know all 5vers need attention and repair at times. I will keep reading post here and I will offer my experience if it appears that it might help some.

Our 295RSX is new to us and we only have one trip with it so far. We do have lots of trips planned for this year including 70+ days in late summer. We have high hopes for this unit considering the negative experience with the Rockwood. So far we are very happy with this unit.

Hi welcome...this was our first winter (3 months) in Florida with our "new" rig. We loved missing 110 inches of snow!
