Just checked the internet for an 2011 8528 IKWS, all I can find is a 2011 8528RKWS, which is a rear kitchen not the same at all. The reason I looked at the 2011 models was because my unit came off the line 12/28/2011 but they called it a 2012 when I bought it in Feb 2012. So I don't still know if they made the 8528IKWS in 2011?......

I knew they were basically the same. Did not realize they all rolled off the same line. Cool.

Yes it's true and here is a shocker for you that I learned also, they roll off 32 per day that is there quota that they meet, so tell me how many they much sell?.......

More Rockwood dealers? Within a 2 hour drive from my house there are 4 Flagstaff dealers and 1 Rockwood dealer. I guess it varies greatly elsewhere.

My tour guide said that if they meet their quota early they get to go home. That may contribute to issues regarding quality. He also said that one unit per day is selected at random for more detailed quality review. I don't know what that entails or what happens if they find defects.

Our new Flagstaff has no "know" defects. After 12 nights camping in 1 months we feel pretty good about our 26RLWS. We just added two more Create-a-Breeze fans and love the breeze they create (thus the name) and the white noise for sleeping. We had a 62degF night over Valentines Day weekend on South Padre Island......we loved it!!

It's good to hear about your 26RLWS. I am glad to hear no problems. I am waiting on ours to be delivered. Hopefully in the next couple weeks.

Only other difference of note would be a slight model changes in mid year. I notice on some 2015 models there's a exterior access door for storage behind the fireplace on the models 3029W and 30WRLIKS.

FR is always making changes. I couldn't tell you if it from owners or just to change up a little, selling point. I'm glad to see that in last 3 years, I have seen them move from WFCO convertors to progressive, Offing upgraded tires on some units. And in overall just a better product. They are on the right trail. But like any corp. Change is slow. So I encourage to keep writing what you like and dislike and how to improve that model. There is proof that they monitor this forum with great respect. Now if they would only have a rep. for each line on here it would really help us all..
