Do you think I can tow this?

Just kidding. We will be picking up our 26RLWS in one week. We've been away from camping for a few years with kids in college and things but now it's just my wife and I, and our labradoodle Lilly, and we're ready to get camping again. We've had several brands over the years but this will be our first Flagstaff. We loved the floor plan. We're excited.

Water and electric
A place to drain the septic
Any KOA is aok
as long as I'm with you...

Isn't this like when you have to ask if you afford this the answer is always "no"? Lol

Exactly! My dad always told me, when looking at trucks, if you have to ask what kind of mileage it gets, you can't afford it

Awesome trailer... you'll love it. We had ours for two years before trading up to the motorhome and never had a lick of trouble with it. As with you, it's just my wife and myself (sans furry kids) and the floorplan was just perfect for us.

Enjoy!

We looked at SOOO many floor plans and were really impressed with the details of the Flagstaff. They seemed to think of "little things" that nobody else did and all those "little things" seemed to add so much value to the RV. We were really impressed with the three drawers under the bed and the large drawer under the couch. The wardrobe slide just put us over the top. Fit and finish seemed at least as good, if not better, than everything else we had looked at. My wife walked out of the bedroom of the RV and said "this is the one"... it was all over but the paying at that point.

We have a Rockwood 2016 2604ws. Same as yours but Rockwood. We love it. Great storage. Our only issue is the comfort of the pull out couch. Memory foam topper helps but it's still not great. Guests would be happier in a tent. Definitely a two person trailer.

It is so reassuring to hear that everyone is happy with the floor plan. We really wound up shopping floor plan first and manufacturer second. We had to travel a ways to get it, two hours, so hopefully there won't be any problems with the RV we can't handle ourselves as warranty work will be rather complicated. We try out best to take care of our stuff so we should be ok. This is our sixth travel trailer and, knock on wood, we've never had any trouble with any of the units we've owned. Hope the streak continues!

Just a word to the wise... not a drawback by any means, but something to add to your checklist. Always make sure the TV is tight against the wall before extending or retracting the main slide. On one trip mine jiggled out a bit in transit and when I ran the slide out it caught on the trim around the slide, pulled it away from the slide, and cracked it. Buggered up the trim - the TV was fine. It would be better if the TV mount was fixed against the wall so that wouldn't happen... but at least on ours it was on an extendable mount.

Great tip! Those are the things usually learned the hard way. Thanks for passing it on to others.

We are very happy with ours too. We like the floor plan now that we fixed it for us. We put the table and two chairs at the rear. Rocker where the table was.
