27RLWS

We purchased our T.T. in July of 2013, and have used it almost 18,000 miles on the original tires. I use a TPMS and run the tires a couple of pounds over the maximum, and have had no problems with them. That included a ALCAN Highway trip over some pretty bad roads. I do check them every day, but only have to add air about twice a year. They are Westlakes.

We have had one tire failure. After about 2500 miles. Starting to show odd wear on the rear tires after 7000 miles. Forest river replaced the one and I now carry two spares. Always keep the tires at 50 psi and don't overload the trailer.

We are going to pick up a Rockwood 2703WS in a couple weeks. What will we need for leveling? I understand the jacks are just for stabilization.

Depends on your budget. A couple 4 foot long pressure treated 2x10s is the least expensive option. The more expensive but more convenient option is Andersen levelers.

Personally, I just use the wood because I can't justify the cost of the Andersen levelers, I have the room in my truck bed to put them there and we only setup 4-5 times a year.

I also just keep some wood planks in the back of the truck. I would spend your money on x-chocks instead. You'll need one to take the bounce out.

In order to use the Anderson Levelers you will need to modify them to fit between the tires...I bought a set and have not taken time to modify them yet. I just use the honey comb style levelers as needed. X-chocks to me are a must. They make the trailer super stable.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like some wood or honeycomb levelers and x-chocks is the way to go. I have no experience with the x-chocks but remember some bounce in trailer we had many years ago.

Home Made X-Chocks

X-Chocks are a great idea. I made my own.

I was looking at our Flagstaff 27 RLWS and decided that the top spot in our kitchen drawers wasn't very functional because it is just made to hold soap, sponges, etc. So, I decided to make it a drawer. The faceplate is pretty much the same size as the other drawer fronts, except for the hinges. I made a drawer out of 1/2" birch plywood, and fastened the drawer front to it. I then remove the drawer slides from the cabinet, installed a couple of extension risers to the lower rack, and installed new upper drawer slides for the new drawer. There was a piece of wood trim in the corner of the opening, and it was removed by taking out four screws that hold it in place. I then reinstalled the newly modified drawer slides, and filled the screwholes that held the hinges on the cabinet frame. Now, we have a forth drawer in the kitchen. It has a spot cut into the top for a drawer pull, but I am going to install a knob.
