Flagstaff or Rockwood

Just wondering which brand sells more, Rockwood or Flagstaff. Are their more dealers for one brand are they evenly split across the USA?

That's hard to answer being they are really the same unit that comes off the same line. I tend to see more flagstaff's at CG then Rockwoods and I do look. I think the flagstaff line is a little better but it's really knowing what to look for in quality.

Oooooooh my dog's better than your dog even though they are from the same litter


Just depends if it was built on a Monday or Friday where the janitor fills in for the guy calling in sick.

I went on the factory tour for Rockwood/Flagstaff in October, 2015. The units are built on the same assembly line and are identical except for fabric colors, flooring colors, decals and exterior colors.

I went on the same tour in 2013 but they were running the V noise that day. There are a few different changes in the models between them, but mostly they are the same. I just like my friends cabinets better. might just be the color or something but your right they are pretty much the same. It's like his sofa seems to be a better quility, but his is a couple years older and who knows if FR didn't decide to cheap out after that. Don't get me wrong I love my Rockwood or I would have gotten a Flagstaff but they do not make a 8289WS flagstaff.....

gljurczyk are you sure Flagstaff doesn't make the identical model to yours. Check this out Flagstaff Classic Super Lite Fifth Wheels / Travel Trailers by Forest River RV
I was under the impression every model was in both Rockwood and Flagstaff just with different names and numbers and colors.

The inside is the same, If that is the outside of it in the picture it is totally different. Also it looks like granite counter tops which they did not have in 2012. Also extra hatch in the rear. But the same layout. Not sure if they had that in 2012 or not in there line. My dealer had a few Flagstaffs but not that one. Also different windows we have full wall 3 at the dinner table and ends of that slide. So it's close but no cigar. Like I said they make small changes between the lines. Also I found at my dealer Flagstaffs where priced a little higher. I got every upgrade they offered at the time, the unit was at a show and they just brought it back to the dealer. So we got a good price at the time. The only difference inside is the shower, and counter tops and fixtures upgrade.
