Awesome thanks for the info. I did think about this too...when you do cook on the burner how does the smoke and heat from cooking exit the camper?

The burners are right next to the kitchen window. We have a little desk fan we bought at Walmart for $5 that just blows out the window. It doesn't cause enough heat to be an issue, especially with how powerful the AC unit is.

There is also another roof vent in the main area, close to where the burners are so any rising smoke would also just go out there.

Thanks again for the info and advice! Just thought of another question? How many stabilizing jacks are there and how easy are they to deploy (say with the use of a cordless drill)? Guess you can tell we are new to this RVing?! I have tent camped many times since I was in the Boy Scouts since around the age of 7. Being an Eagle Scout does come in handy when camping, but looking to change it up a little since we can now... and we think this is the size travel trailer we are looking for and for an affordable price (approx. $12,000 for a 2017). We walked in the WW X-Lite FS 195BH this past weekend here at our local camping world and immediately liked the standard features! Thanks again for the advice!

I haven't mounted ours yet for that reason, kids like to see it from the bunks...

We were in the same position, this is also our first travel trailer. We looked at many but the campers layout worked best in our price range.

There are only 3 stabilizers, one on each side and the front stabilizer. They are very fast and easy to put down, you don't even need the drill. The way they are threaded, you only need to turn it about 10 times before it hits the ground. The front stabilizer does take a lot of turning, probably 30 cranks before it touches the ground. You can just buy an extended Foot Jack for it though, which makes it longer so you don't need to crank as much: https://www.amazon.com/Curt-Manufact...Z427YJP6MJ3KFD

We have a 2006 Nissan Frontier SE V6 with hitch and electric 7-prong hookup so not too worried about towing this type of travel trailer. Like I said just trying to find someone who may be able to answer some specific questions we have about this model under the Forest River brand.

Jones family from Hendersonville, NC. Thanks.
Our kids are 5 and 7, and it's working well for us so far (just 3 trips in with it).

I don't know your truck but I suspect it will be ok. I suggest a WDH, you can read my experience w/ this camper and my F150 here: weight dist hitch for smaller TT

stabs are factory options. you can opt for either none, two in the back, or 4. get 4. if the one on the dealer lot has less, have them add them on before you leave.

very easy to use. I use a drill, but when I forgot the drill on the first trip, it just took a few seconds w/ the wrench.

we pd $10,200 (or somewhere close to that) this spring on our 2017, factory ordered w/ spare tire and 4 stabs, but just dorm fridge (no LP). We didn't order the DVD player or TV antenna, so maybe they made that standard in '17, because we got it anyway.

every region is going to have a different price point, but $12k sounds a little high...

one thing I'll probably be doing is changing the steps to a two-step setup. One isn't enough when you have the door side high to level it. I fell on my one night stepping down. It can make a high step for the kids! Dealer where I store mine could get two-step to replace the one for $120-$150

We really like it. I've only had two minor issues so far. The hot water line to the shower was kinked. I fixed myself by loosening the connection to get some of the bend out and re-installed/re-caulked. The other is the sensor for the fresh water tank doesn't work. I'll probably take it in over winter for that warrantee work.

New Wildwood 195BH TV mount idea

Our first tt was the 2014 ww 195bh fs. Got it brang dang new. Loved it. It is just the wife and I. We did all cooking outside. Super easy to tow. I did put a wd hutch on it though. Towed so much better. Had a 1998 f150 4x4 v6 manual transmission. Put a full swing tv mount on the cabinet by microwave. The 19 led tv could be seen from anywhere, even the bathroom. I put a big computer case fan in the bath vent with a tiny toggle. Added front stab jacks. Made it way more stable. Also put a power tounge jack, best mod I did to it. Also put battery cut off under the lower bunk. 120v only fridge. Way cheaper to replace. Factory tires didn't last long, insides got bald fast. And I'll Finnish with this, it was nice price, nice lay out, and it had a bed, bathroom, tv, and A/C. All the things the WIFE demanded. It was a fun " first " camper.


Now I'm going back to looking for my 10mm wrench! 2016 Wildwood 27RKSS
