Well I am guessing that no one has any concerns with the 14 inch wheels and load c rated tires and that is good. Wondering what the consensus is with the standard 13500 AC unit and whether it is enough for this trailer?

I am guessing that would depend on where you are and how efficient you are. I live in Canada and so far the AC has been plenty powerful enough. We have the diamond package so the trailer is the darker colour. But I have dark skylight covers and I keep the blinds closed. Ensure the windows and doors stay shut as much as possible. Keeping as much light out helps.

We went with the 15000 btu and swapped the tires out for E rated 10 ply tires. The original equipment tires were heat checked after 2 years.

We're on our 2nd new Rockwood trailer in two years. The first was a 2604 that we camped in 101 nights in 2012. Loved it, but wanted something a little bigger, so we traded for a 3008W Windjammer (the Rockwood version of the Flagstaff V Lite). We used this trailer 96 nights in 2013 and so far, 33 nights in 2014. We have not had any major problems, and the few relatively minor problems were handled quickly and thoroughly by out dealer (shout out to Bill Thomas Camper Sales in Wentzville, MO.) We absolutely love the floor plan of the Windjammer (I know where you're coming from, Weezer!) and will definitely buy another Forest River product in the future.

As others have said, building a good relationship with the dealer is essential. Saving that $2K up front by shopping the low price regardless of where it is may sound good at the time of the initial purchase, but if and whn you need something done (and you will!) being able to call the local dealer and have them not only know who you are, but know your unit before you even get there and be willing and happy to work on it makes the $2K savings not so impressive.

Good luck in your search, whatever you buy.

We have the 27 rlws and love it! We had a minor issue worth the skirting coming loose. It was covered under warranty and promptly fixed! No issues since! Love the floor plan!

Next decision is whether to purchase in my home state, Michigan. Or purchase in Florida as it will be used exclusively in Florida, and most likely left down there.. I have already had a great member on this forum give me a lead on a dealer down there as I have no clue about who is good or bad down there. Guess it would just be a chance I take.

I would certainly look at dealers where you will be most of the time. There are dealers who offer a better deal, but when it comes to service at another location, they may put you off because you didn't buy there. Camping World I imagine has warrantee work done buy just about any manufacture but have never tried it. Do your research diligently on which dealer to buy from and their service history. I would bet there are numerous members on this forum that could steer you in the right direction.

We went to numerous dealers offering this and that were somewhat comparative but their service after a purchase just was not there. Think back on how many cars or trucks you bought from a dealer and loved the salesman then brought your vehicle back for service and it was like day and night. These buggers are worse. They tie your TT for days and weeks even months before they get around to you. Again...do your homework before you start shopping!

Just purchased the micro lite 21FBRS and spent the last 3 days breaking it in. Very happy with it and no problems so far!

One other thing that I am finding is that there has been up to a $2400 dollar difference in price on the same trailer, and of course they all tell you that they have great service, and that you can get service at any Forest river facility. This industry seems to be all over the place in consistency.
