Talking New Flagstaff V-Lite 30WRKSS

We signed some papers last night and put a deposit down on a new 2012 Flagstaff V-Lite 30WRKSS. We will take possession of the unit next Friday morning. We have been planning to do this after seeing one of them at the RV show this past winter. The layout, including the 1.5 baths was by far the major deciding factor. Needless to say we are very excited. I hate to wish my life away, but next Friday just can't get here soon enough. Nothing worse than that "waiting for a new TT" feeling. Pics will, of course, follow soon.

Hello, and to the site. Congrats on the new unit, and may get many enjoyable trips out of it. Glad to have you aboard. Just make sure you get a PDI checklist, (can be found here if you do a search), and take with you to pick it up. Make the dealer gets everything on it, and ask a lot of questions. Have a pen and paper with you, and a camera, maybe. Good Luck and happy trails.

Congrats on the V-Lite. You will love it! We love ours and have only used it for 4 nights on Memorial Weekend. We were the only V-Nose TT in the campground. It is really cool to be the only one and see everyone look at and want to see inside. Be polite and let them see how cool the design really is. Enjoy your camping I know you will not regret it.

P.S. At least you only have to wait a week. I had to wait 8 weeks and it was tough to wait. I spent a lot of time on these forums. Great people here so if yo have any questions, make sure to let us know.

Thanks Windrider and pbrackney. We can barely wait for Friday to get here! We will be the only V-Nose in our seasonal site, so it will be interesting to see how many questions we get from others as they walk thru the CG.

We like the V-Lite for the towing and use of space. My wife loves the kitchen in the nose. It is out of the flow of traffic.

We have 3 trips planned so far and looking forward to all of them. Plan to put some miles on the new trailer seeing not only Florida (we have seen a lot of Fla with our 1st trailer) but the US. Lots to see and do and now is the time.

New W30FKSS

I fell in love with the front kitchen too. Our first trip took us from central IL to Arkansas, a month in N Texas visiting two of our sons and their families, then down to central TX, west TX mountains for a week, NM, San Diego for a week of sightseeing + adoption of two rescue poochons, up through central and N. California to visit family, up to NW Oregon for a couple of weeks visiting with a sister, then for a few days up by Seattle, WA for sightseeing, down to mountains in Utah for more spectacular sightseeing, then finally through Midwest and back home. I didn't think I would enjoy nearly three months in a trailer....ANY trailer, as I am not much of a camper....but Gary is.....I wanted to visit family and he wanted to see the country again. He also picked out the V Lite, I picked the front kitchen. We are older, so getting used to towing a trailer again, especially this long a trailer, is a bit daunting. In spite of that, we had a WONDERFUL time. The V LITE really is a home on the road, but while it is long, it is not nearly as big or heavy as many of the rigs we saw on our trip, so it really is managable!! We are planning to go out again when the weather is cooler. I hope your travels are wonderful as ours have been so far. I'd love to hear how your trips go! Hope you'll post about it! Take care and ENJOY!!!!

Thats quite a first trip in a new trailer. Sounds like you guys had a great time. We are looking forward to working our way up to a trip like that.

I've had a 28ft for 4 years and have loved it. Don't get to go out as much as I would like(still working after military retirement LOL). Use it at hunting camp every year and it is great. Hope you new owners have alot of fun.
