I love our 2014 31BKIS. It's a Salem, so looks a little different than the Wildwood, but same floor plan.
The outdoor kitchen and bunk room (yes it's actually a whole room folks) are the biggest pluses for me. The power everything is really nice also.... The remote makes it easy to watch the slideouts from outside while operating them. That's the "showstopper package", not sure if all 2014's had that.
The only negatives so far have been that with all that extra kitchen/living room space the bedroom feels a little cramped when you are 6'5" and sleep on the far side of the bed.
I also don't like the two sewer outlets. I have to have three hoses and a T, which takes up space and all three of them won't fit in the bumper.
Last year it was all new to us, and we had a blast, but found things we wanted to update. So this year we have pulled out the Jack Knife Sofa and the Booth. I'm happy to report it was very easy with just a few screws.... And the entire slideout is carpeted underneath so our free standing chairs and new sofa with cup holders and duel recliners fit perfectly.
I have opted to leave the existing table for now since it fits so well.
I was a little surprised at how flimsy all the construction was as I dismantled things... But have realized that it's pretty standard in the industry for them to cut corners where they can.
We lost some beds that way, but can still sleep 6 or even 8 in the recliners. It really improved the comfort level though. I'm a heavy dude.
My tow vehicle is a 2004 Ford F-250 crew cab. It's the V10, not diesel.
I avg 9mpg when pulling the TT and 12-14 the rest of the time. I do have a programmed tuner that I got from 5 star tunes. The towing tune seems to draw out the shift points and let's me cruise around 60-65 avg on the Missouri hills where I live.
