Small point of order - Husky does not have an "equalizer" hitch ... they have weight distribution hitches. Equal-i-zer is the only manufacturer of "equalizer" hitches.

The top step on our entry steps has become somewhat bent. I checked with the dealer and they said it isn't covered under warranty (first year just ran out, but we got the second year through FR).

I'm going to email the Rockwood warranty rep tomorrow and see if there is anything they can do or if we should contact Flexco. The dealer wants $530 to replace the steps, which sounds outrageous. I'm guessing it's just a matter of removing a few bolts on the old steps and replacing them with bolts for the new steps.

It's usable, but I'm sure the bend will become more pronounced the more we use it.

Got a photo or three? I am doubtful that it would be covered under the warranty by the rep. But that would depend on how the failure occurred.

What is to stop the new step from having the same issue if the design is the same? Replacement alone may not be the solution.

27RLWS

Flexco Triple 24" RV Step with 8" Drop $119.85

http://www.flexcoproducts.com/produc...ep-with-8-drop

Simple to R & R the steps. Several bolts and your done. For $500.00 I would get electric steps

Looking at upgrading our 2013 Salem Cruise Lite 221RBXL to a Flagstaff 27RLWS. Lots of posts here and I will admit I have not had time to read them all. The floorplan and price weight and lenght seems to meet our needs. I may have some more questions before we order one for spring delivery but the one that comes to mind right now is can you access the fridge without having to deploy the slide? Thinking af the emerald package and looks like it is worth while. Not sure on the electric stabilizers yet.

As far as accessing the fridge the answer is yes and no. The fridge does open with the slide in but the other, dinette, slide blocks you from getting to it. There is limited access by reaching over the counter and if you are spry enough you can sit on counter and swing your legs over and get into the kitchen as we do when both slides are in. My wife has a much easier time doing this than I do! As for the power stabilizers, I really like them. Dan

We purchased our 27RLWS in July of last year from Cheyenne Camping Center, and love it. It is the plain jane version, so it's lighter than the Emerald package We completed an ALCAN trip this spring, including Fairbanks, and Anchorage. It hasn't given is any problems. We are pulling it with a 2009 Suburban, and have been averaging 10 mpg.
We are leaving in October from Montana, to Wisconsin, Illinois, and cross country to Deer Valley, AZ to spend the winter. The TT is plenty spacious for DW, myself, and Phoxie, the cat.

The 27RLWS has a fantastic floor plan. After researching for about a year and a half, we found this floor plan at a show here in town. As with all TT, there are some issues that you need to work through and after all that, we still love the TT. Take some time in it and you too will love it. Although you can't access the refrigerator but you can access the bathroom. We take a cooler with us but not a port-o-john so that makes it worth it.
If you go with the 27RLWS I would highly recommend you read this thread from page one. There are great modifications to do as well as watching out for things other owners have found to need correcting.

Does anyone have trouble with movement of the trailer when camping? It seems like ours moves quite a bit even with the stab jacks in place. If someone gets up, the whole trailer seems to move...
