After lengthy shopping we bought a new to us Wildcat 2011 29bhs tt due to the appearance of quality construction, great floor plan for expected added campers and of course a reasonable price , weight and load capacity not to mention our local FR dealer who we dealt with in past. Service has always been important to us.
We will find out this week if expectations are correct when we pick it up after 7 months in storage the ice is clearing from the harbor, it's 38F here today. The local dealer has changed attitude and the weight capacity has been reduced as 3500lb axles were used instead of 5000lb axles . Off to a rough start and we haven't moved it an inch in 7 months. Probably a mistake but ....

You might want to PM Wildcat Chris about the 3500lbs axles

Thank you Frank-VA for contact information. I did not follow my own advice last fall to check all purchases for consumer product and highway recalls prior to purchase of new or used. Was I surprised to read the recall and the labels on axles pictures on a snowy night.

I'll take it for a test camp Thursday, a little camp time may take the bite out.

We have a 2009 29.5RL. the first reason was the holding tank sizes. To my knowledge Wildcat is the only 100 gal gray water tank. I like the interior of our unit. We did purchase new Lazy Boys that blends well with the decor. If we do purchase, I would like another slide in the living area with a center door. Some campground are designed for center doors.

Walked into our 2010 28 footer with double living room slides & we were sold. Then the extra features just kept coming. TV rising up from the cabinet, 16 inch wheels, rear electric stabilizers...

We have owned six campers over a period of 40 years . . . one pickup slide-in and the five fifth wheels. Each one has been a different brand. Our current camper is a 2012 Wildcat Sterling 30RL. It had more features and room with a lower weight plus it was priced right. We have had good luck with all our campers, but this one is the best. I'm 6'6" and need room. We have pulled it more than 35,000 miles in the past three years. It's been to the Great Lakes, Gulf, Rockies, and East coast. The next trip is to the West coast. Also, I have pulled with F100's, F250's and F350's through the years. This one is easily pulled with a well equipped F150 and is well within the factory weight limits as weighed on a truck stop scale.

Since that time we've owned 3 diesel pushers-a(1) Gulfstream, (1) Monaco Dynasty, and finally, an Allegro Bus. Mixed in with those MH's, we had a teardrop trailer we pulled behind our street rod, a motorcycle pop-up and currently, a Sprinter based ERA, a Class B MH made by Winnebago and our 13' Scamp fully self contained "egg"travel trailer.
We just bought a Wildcat T24RG (28') travel trailer that we'll be picking up soon. Why did we buy a Wildcat? It really isn't just one thing, it's all about Forest River reputation as well as my son's trouble free experience with his Rockwood 21' trailer over the past 3 years. This coupled with the general quality of construction and interior finish, high R value of the walls, floor, and ceiling. We also wanted the enclosed underbelly with heated tanks, the 1 piece floor, the amenities and extra's included at the price point we wanted. The cargo carrying capacity is much higher than any of the competing brands and the dealer we purchased from (Canopy Country RV) in Ellensburg, Wa is topnotch. Other units had the same floor plan, however, they fell short in either amities, quality, construction, or much higher price for their comparable travel trailer.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!!
UPDATE, traded the 24RG for a 33' 28RKX Wildcat MAXX! Yep, we're sold on Wildcat MAXX units!
