New Wildcat GM making his mark. The old one made major improvements that squeezed the margins too low, so he is gone now. The fantastic money losing 295rsx is gone. No more giant front storage thanks to the BAL NSX frame, back to the cheap Lippert. No more 9 cuft refrig std., back to the 8ft., spare tire back to a bumper mount. No more cool radial shower with bath access from bedroom, now step naked into the hall or stumble down the steps at night. Just when you thought Wildcat would break out and lead the pack! Oh well...

Sure glad we got our 295RSX. We love it and all it's features. Sorry to see it is no longer available.

There are quite a few still out there for anyone looking and I bet you can play the "its discontinued so I need a bigger discount" card. Google search finds them.

hbillsmith, from your "myedit" comments in another thread, I see Wildcat is eliminating the major features for which I bought my 295RSX eXtralite... such as the front storage of the BAL frame, 50 gallon waste tanks, radial shower, etc. The layout and features of our trailer make it perfect for us - especially now that we have most of the bugs worked out.

We still have a few "bugs" to resolve. BUT this is such a great unit, we will hang on and get them all resolved. We already have plans to attend the Goshen Rally next year. If our issues are not fully resolved by then, we'll get them resolved there.

I guess Warren wants to increase his profit margin.

The really sad part to me is, they look like a lot of the other models that are already out there.

I've got to say that none of those new Wildcats look very appealing to me and my family of 5. Most of the features that drove us to buy a Wildcat are gone (bunkhouse with 3 or more beds, front storage size, bathroom config, etc). If I was in the market to replace my 312BHX, I'd be forced to look at a different brand.
