Owner of a 2016 Flagstaff 8528 IKWS!!!!

Just bought a new Super Lite Flagstaff 8528 IKWS 5TH Wheel. DW and I are very excited. Love the high ceiling. This is the right size for ythe 2 of us. It took me 3 years to make the move. We pick it up on October 6th and are set up for 2 night stay at a local park near the dealer to make sure everything is to our liking. Any suggestions please do not hesitate to post. First time owning an RV.

Smile 8528 ikws

We like ours very well. Have had radio replaced by dealer, when we go back they will replace t-stat to digaital. We leave ours permanent in Ky, we do not pull it. We have a really good dealer, Caudill Rv sales in Franklin furnace, Ohio. Good service. I hope the new t-stat helps the a/c work better, it has a 15 K Coleman unit. Good luck with your new 8528.

Congrats on your new 8528IKWS.
I hope it serves you well.

The DW and I ordered the 8529IKBS.
A slightly new floor plan based off of the one you bought except it has the bed slide out the back instead of the wardrobe slide out the front. Everything else is almost the same.
Ours is to come off the factory line tomorrow!

We love our 2015 8528 IKWS. Our biggest complaint is about the lack of heat in the living room and way too much heat in the bathroom. I don't know if Flagstaff/Rockwood addressed this in the 2016 or not. I hope you enjoy your trailer as much as we do. Happy Camping

We looked at the 8529IKBS while we were at the FROG Rally in Goshen. Looks like a real nice biggger brother to the 8528. I thought it was a little too heavy for a F-150. Let us know how you like your new trailer. Happy Camping
