Hi Joefire50, welcome to the forum.

We have the slightly newer version the 8529IKBS.
The floor plans is very much the same except ours has a bed slide instead of the wardrobe slide.

We really like ours and it has been an excellent choice for us.
Just be sure when buying used that you look things over well.
Get on the roof and check the seams to be sure nothing is amiss there.
Check the tires (and the date codes) to see how old they are.

If it was taken care of (routine maintenance) you should have plenty years of enjoyment from it.

There are several threads here on the the 8528IKWS and the sister Rockwood 8289ws.
The newer version of the Rockwood which is like ours is a 8299BS. There are no differences between the Flagstaff and the Rockwood except trim colors and graphics.

Do a search and you will find some good reading.

We love out 8528IKWS. Very few problems, easy to pull, and comfortable to live in.
