We also have the 2015 8528RKWS and love it. The pin weight seems to be an issue though, pulling it with a F250 Super Duty the pin weight just does not seem heavy enough. Old Coot I'm really interested in your shock design and installation can you send me the zip?

We have a 2014 Flagstaff 8528rkws Diamond package with a Reese Revolution hitch. Pulled it from Rhode Island to Florida through the mountains with a 2002 Chevy Silverado 3/4 ton with BBK headers, cold air intake, transmission cooler and cooling pan. Returned home with 40,000 original miles. Runs like a charm.

Storage under the couch. For a 28 footer, there is still plenty of room to have company over on a rainy day without feeling too crowded. Storage near the entertainment area for games, DVD's and liquor. Laundry shoot under the bathroom sink.
Con's: The grill cooks pretty slow, but you can drink three beers while waiting for everything to cook. The 2013's dont have very much storage for towels in the bathroom.

We usually trade our camper in every 3-5 years. We may end up keeping this one a little longer.
we just bought a 2016 I agree with you on the room

I didn't read all the the threads so may be repeating. Wife and I have a 8528 IKWS love it we had a Chevy 1500 with flex fuel 6 cylinder we new this was not enough truck budget was tight so we found good deal on 2015 GMC 3/4 ton SLT 6.0 gasoline it pulled trailer just fine and the luxury was awesome in the GMC. Now the down side long trips with hills we live in Texas so not mountains but hills fuel mileage sucked got average 7.5 with lows of 4 and highs of 10 wife wants to take trip to Michigan to see family did math 1150 in gas round trip ouch just traded for 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 lone star edition we will see if that helps with the Cummins Diesel engine I'm guessing fuel cost will drop to 600 I hope
