Wildwood xlite 261bhxl

Thinking about purchasing a new 261bhxl. Have also looked at Cherokee Grey Wolf itch similar floor plans. Any pros or cons to either. The wildwood seems to have everything we need and a bit cheaper but no outside shower. Do these have standard blank tank flush or missing anything else that makes set up clean up easier? It does have full power package for jacks. I felt like it was missing something ( water flush on outside,etc...) but couldn't put my finger on it and dealer wasn't offering what the trailer didn't have. Anyone that may know of standard features not offered would be s big help.
Thank

I purchased a 261bhxl last month and have loved everything about it. It got the outside kitchen/grill and some of the interior upgrades. I am not sure of the other model but have not been disappointed in our purchase. The electric stabilizer feet and awning are a great feature to have. We also have like the awning lights at night when we get back to the trailer after dark and have to unlock the door. I hope this helps in your thought process in purchasing.

We don't have the optional kitchen/grill for outside. Know of how I can buy one after market? Haven't had best of luck finding via search though I am limited due to being at work right now.

Just bought my 2014 261BHXL today from a private seller.

I don't know...mine came as stock so I have never looked for one.

Sorry I couldn't help on that one.

As features can vary not sure what you're might come with, our 262bhxl does not have a black tank flush ( we use a secondary attachment at the dump point for this, RV places can add one for around 200 I believe).

The one done side to the power jacks is I feel they are less stable then the manual stab jacks, I notice a lot more bounce then in our camping groups with manuals, we added come camco stabilizing jacks to help this.

All in all we found the wildwood had the best overall options and appearance then others we looked at, going on a year now and love it.

We bought a 261BHXL and camped in it twice and found it to be to small for our family of 4 and 3 dogs. We have traded it in for a Wildwood 28DBUD and have loved the extra space!!

Towing an Xlite with water in the tank.

I have just purchased a new Xlite 261 BHXL. The dealer strongly cautioned about driving with water in the tanks. The boondocking forum seems to say that this is bad advice. Since i will often be well away from a water source it presents a problem. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this issue and an Xlite. Thanks

Traveling with full water tank

I have taken our trailer out on all occasions with water in the tank. From weekend trips to the lake, to 10 day excursions across the province, and into the states. Over, around, mountains, hiways etc. What's the point of having a water tank, if you can't use it.

To OP. I bought a Cherokee Grey Wolf not your model but a toy hauler and love it. Did modifications on it after the purchase. I'm sure you can't go wrong with either trailer your looking at. My suggestion would be to get inside each and pull drawers lift beds. Turn fixtures open cabinets and see which one you can see yourself in. If price is close don't let that be a deciding factor. I originally was looking at grey wolf 22rr but the dealer had a 26 rr on the lot. Me and wife went in and out of each unit multiple times to compare. Bought the 26rr that was not even on my radar. Once we got in it it felt right.
