Wildcat Rep

Does anyone know if there is a Wildcat Rep available to the forum??
We are looking to upgrade from our Wildwood to the 2015 Wildcat F262RGX.
Looks like a good Unit but we have a few questions.
Any other owners please chime in. I'm still not convinced it's twice as good as the the old "Woodie" even if it is twice the $

since Wildcat Chris moved to a different division, not sure if there is anymore.

hopefully, a Wildcat owner can help.

Too bad about Chris. I was reviewing a few of his old posts, seemed like a good rep and good source for straight info. Maybe some one will know of an equally good contact we can reach out to.
Moving into the 5er world is a little intimidating.

We no longer have a factory rep for Wildcat here. Losing Chris was a blow. He helped quite a few of us. You can direct your questions to a dealer or feel free to ask here. All of us are willing to help where we can.

Thanks guys. Questions revolve around the differences between the Wildcat Maxx and the Rockwood models. I'm more concerned with the frame and running gear and the DW more with the finish on the inside. We're looking to stay with the smaller 26 to 28 foot rear kitchen models.
We'll try asking on the FR web site as well

first, Wildcat Maxx are NOT ultralight trailers, like Rockwoods are.
and the Maxx line is made in Oregon, while the regular Wildcat line is made in Indianan.

IMHO, the Maxx is a heavier and stouter unit. can't say if there are quality differences. the two smaller TT's have CCC's of over 4000lbs.
i like the Maxx line but don't have a TV capable of towing them.

Thanks Dan!
Good to know. I saw the Maxx as a heavier unit as well and I think I like it for that reason. Been trying to contact FR but now I know they have an Oregon plant I'll narrow my search and hopefully find someone there that I can correspond with.
Appreciate the help

I donít know if he is still around on the forum but Wildcat Steve was a factory rep for the Wildcat Maxx line. He wasnít very active on the forums though.

Also I know for sure that there is a Wildcat Maxx Facebook page so you might be able to get some information there.

Made contact at the plant in Dallas, OR thanks to the link from Joshua Cavitt.
I'm liking the stronger albeit heavier Wildcat more and more as I look into converting to the fifth wheel option.
We will be attending the upcoming RV show next week and hopefully be able to pull the trigger. Guess the new camera will be on hold for a while
