I just joined the FR Forums and saw your post. My DW and I just purchased our first RV, a new Flagstaff Classic Ultra Lite Model 831F
LSS. We looked very seriously at the 831RLSS and were then shown a V-Lite model. We realized that we liked the additional bedroom space provided by the second slide-out, but did not like the reduced capacities on the V-Lite (holding tanks, propane tanks, etc.). I went back to the Classic Ultra Lite floorplans and we decided to look at the 831FLSS. Since our TV has about 1200 lb hitch capacity, the additional hitch weight of the FL over the RL was not a concern. Both models also have the BW flush hose hook-up which was a desirable feature. With the Reese dual cam system and Tekonsha P3 brake controller the TT tows very well. The only additional items that we had them add were Fantastic Fans and MaxAir Vents. The additional interior space of the 831 vs 827 model is great and there is not much downside in backing into sites or towing that I can tell due to the added length. I think that you would be very pleased if you decide on the FR Flagstaff 831RLSS.
The TT is a dream come true for both of us! We just returned from our maiden voyage to the NC mountains (trial by fire, as they say) and met the most wonderful people, campers and campground hosts, during our stay. More on all of that in future posts, though. (The two campgrounds were Mama Gerties
in Swannanoa and Campfire Lodgings
just north of Asheville. Both were great, although Mama Gerties is on the side of a mountain.)
Happy RV'ing and feel free to contact me via PM if you want to discuss live!
