Our 2011 has been pretty solid except for a few issues I fixed myself. I don't think the axle issue was very widespread either.

We have a smaller V-Lite and love the big bedroom and wardrobe.

Be sure you get 15 inch wheels or larger. A porcelain toilet is nice as well.

One thing we love about ours is the extra large holding tanks as we stay at many parks that do not have a full hookup.

You may want to avoid the troubles associated with the Dometic blue light frige.

There's no MPG advantage I can see with the V front.

Our kitchen faucet had a slow leak from day one and we just kept a pan under it because it is in an impossible location to work on. But it has steadily slowed to a few drops a day, if that??

Anyway, all in all, we like ours very much and the troubles have not been too much to deal with.

Ok thanks..Yeah I just did a little research on it.

I can see where the blue light would be a little annoying.

Our first trailer was a Windjammer 3008W by Rockwood. Sister line to the V-lites. I think what YooRoo was trying to say was that depending on the floorplan certain features/areas of the trailer cannot be accessed unless the slide(s) are out. For example, in our 3008, we could get to the fridge, the bathroom, or the bedroom if need be without putting the slide out. This can be convenient when stopping for lunch on the road or if the little one needs a bathroom in a hurry.

Thank you for explaining....I'm new to TT's so I didn't quite get what he was saying. Great points and something to consider.

I know you can get a "lemon" with any brand but I wanted to make sure if I do buy a V-lite that most people have had a good experience with them.

Little problems here and there don't bother me but major leaks, half the electrical not working, slides not fitting correctly...etc...those things are just plain poor manufacturing.

You guys had good luck with the FR roofs? I know Jayco prides themselves on the strongest, most durable roof...

I noticed it looks like FR uses a lot of foam in the roof. Is it supported any other way, or just vacuumed sealed wood around a solid foam piece?
