2012 V-Series 30WTBS

I am in the process of negotiating a deal to buy a new Flagstaff 30 WTBS. This is a V front with one slide. Was curious if anyone has had experience with this newer type design.
Any pros and cons would be greatly appreciated.
I currently have a 2005 Flagstaff 831 BHSS.

Mine was one of the first year V lites; I have 2 slides, and a front closet. No real problems with it, and still love it. Many improvements have been made since we got ours, for the better! Randy

If you are talking about the V-nose design, I have a 29 MBV XLR which also has 1 slide and the v-nose front. It is a heavy TH,about 8800#s with no toys. It tows really good. It seems to cut through the wind and not hit it head on. When you pull a trailer that is squared off on the front, you get the hit when you pass a truck. This TH does not get that feel.. I have not pulled any other trailer with this truck though to give any perspective on mileage difference. I use an Equalizer hitch (1400# design) with TH. It really makes a big difference on sway. I would hope some of the improvement is also with v-nose design.

I've got a 2011 V-Lite 30wtbs, 1 slide, quad bunks up front. LOVE IT!!!!! Lite. About 6800 lbs empty. Pull it w/ a Ford F-150 supercrew w/ the 5.4 v8. Have the blue ox weight distributing hitch w/ anti-sway. Live in hilly PA and it pulls great. Wish I could get it out every weekend, we love it so much.

i have the FR Windjammer which is similar and love it...the V nose makes the biggest difference and i use the Equalizer problems with pulling it

We also have a 2012 Windjammer V-nose. Model 3008W--kitchen in the nose and has 2 slides. Absolutely love the trailer and it pulls very easily behind my Silverado 1500 2WD. I am pulling on primarily flat land and with the Equalizer hitch--you don't even know it's back there. Personal opinion--V-nose is the way to go.
