Flagstaff 8528 IKWS 5th Wheel...comments & views

Hello FR Forum...We're new to the forum. We're on the sidelines still making decisions on exactly what 5th wheel model we want to buy. We were really interested in the CC Silverback 29RE, but have decided to drop down in size. We are attracted to the Flagstaff 8528 IKWS floorplan at this point. We'd sure appreciate hearing from owners of this new floorplan. We have some questions about certain features and options and we'd appreciate any overall impressions / comments forum members may have, pro & con.

We are going with the "Diamond Pkg." for sure. One of the options in question are the thermal windows...are they actually gas filled double pane glass or a storm window design? Can you still get the bonded frameless windows with this option? Do the windows still open the same as standard glass? The dealer didn't know for sure. Your current experiences with this new model would be very much appreciated. Thank you

George & Judy

If you have not personally seen this diamond package make sure you do before you make a commitment. The brochure states that the windows are
"tinted bonded frameless windows". When I saw them at the show, they did not look like thermal windows and they only open with the bottom kicking out about three inches. We didn't care for the package but to each his own.

I've seen the flagstaff 8528 series and really liked them we almost bought a 8528bhss because of the second restroom for the kids, there was two reasons why we didn't .
1 our camping friends bought the same model.
2 my wife loved the outside kitchen on the palomino saber .

So we ended up with the sabre
