Awesome! I've been looking at what RV Wholesalers have in stock.
They have (2) left but they both are the single door refrigerators.
I am hesitant about buying a single door ref. My local dealer here
in Las Vegas doesn't have any in stock and a special order will cost
over 7k more than RV Wholesalers. Glad to hear that your TV is a good
match for the TT. Do you use a wdh and sway control?

Yes, I use a WDH and sway control, and it helps tremendously. I had to tow my trailer to my dad's house to put the WDH on (he had a long enough level driveway), and there was a huge difference towing it to his house with no WDH and towing it back home. I cannot remember which one I bought at the moment, but I bought mine from etrailer.com. They have given me good service in the past, and had some helpful videos and instructions on installation.
We had an older/used pop-up just before the Wildwood, and we only took it out once. It had a single door fridge. I didn't like it at all. It could have been because it was about 20 years old, but it was small and didn't cool down well. The fridge/freezer in the Wildwood is a dream in comparison. I'd like a bigger fridge/freezer (who wouldn't?), but it suits our needs well for trips.
We already have reservations for Disney in Florida for Thanksgiving week 2013. We're bringing my twin nephews and my sister-in-law, so it will be a nice test of the space for sure! We don't plan on spending a lot of time in the trailer on that trip though.
We have had our 2011 WildWood T26BHXL for 12 months($8000 CraigsList) and checked out this site before we purchased so thanks for all info out here. I’ve been lucky enough to RV all my life, my sister has a 29’ TT and my parents are now full-timers . I am quite the handy man and tend to do a lot of modifications to make sure our home away from home is as good as it can be. I am also a stickler on maintenance and organization.
As for pros and cons: I think as a week-ender several times a year this is a great camper but as a serious camper(several 2-3 weekers a year plus weekenders) it could use some work but it has good bones. I chose not to have a slide out for price, weight increase(1050lbs), maintenance and belief(a camper is only gone into to cook, sleep and bathroom every thing else is done outside)
Mods I have already done(most MODs have been posted):
double commercial 950CCA battery frame/rack up front(second battery is a must)
Axle flip(first trip out we drug-ass and hitch several times), raised 5 1/4inch, I only wanted 3inch but for 24$ this was easy and after 5000plus miles it seems to ride/tow great, we do use an extra step now.
3 Cubbies under beds, cut out and framed for easy storage access, these were very difficult spaces to use before.
Second shelf across front wall of trailer, tons of new space.
Cabinet for lower bunk bed(upper bunk already had one).
Hinged kick board of couch to give fantastic storage access.
Receiver on back for bike rack or storage rack.
DC outlets installed in bunk beds
Foot Step installed for upper bunk
Many more smaller projects done and too do: Fantastic Fan in bath and new install above couch, insolate and heat tanks for winter use, move spare tire to under camper, cutting board replacement for sink covers, counter space flip up, motion light outside quieter-fan swap for fridge……….
As you can see: I have a great wife who lets me just do it and I have way to much time.
See ya on the road,
Keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down
