Any words of wisdom?

After searching and modifying our needs/wants, we are thissssss close to purchasing a Wildwood 24RLS from our local dealer...any words of wisdom with regard to the Wildwood product?

We LOVE the Rockwood finishes; yet this model ticks all of our interior wants/needs.

Thanks in advance for your help.

as far as i know, all Wildwood RVs are aluminum-sided, which means wood framed, since Wildwood is an entry-level RV line.
the Rockwood will be fiberglass-sided with aluminum frame.

Thanks for the help. We decided against the Wildwood after carefully inspecting the unit at the local dealership. I believe we will be going with a Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite fifth wheel.

Just a few words of warning about the ultra lights. They have very thin walls, only an inch of insulation, vs up to 2 inches for others, so are harder to heat/cool. There is no plywood on the floor like most campers, so tend to be "soft". The axles are of bare minimum capacity, although probably adequate. There are no rafters in the roof, so you don't want to be stomping around up there.
But they are pretty to look at, and we like ours just the same.
Just wanted to give you some things to consider.
Good luck.
