Question Kinda along the same lines

I am looking at purchasing my first camper and boy there is no shortage of advice on this subject is there. However, much like Dogman, I figure the best way to get the real story is to go the the people that have to live with the product. I am looking at purchasing a Forest River Flagstaff product in Lynchburg, VA. but it almost seems like the Rockwood is the better selling product. Is this because it's made better or because the name sounds more manly "ROCKWOOD"
Secondly, I have found another camper that has the underbelly covering thingy, does this really matter and does it make a difference?
Thanks,
Rob

I think for the money I paid, and for the weight, the Rockwood is the best deal I personnaly will vouch for. Of course Flagstaff is the same thing.

It does three thing for you:

1. Extends your camping season by making the trailer more resistant to cold weather.
2. In theory at least, makes the underside of the trailer more streamlined and thus easier and cheaper to tow.
3. Makes working on just about anything under the trailer a real pain as the underbelly must be removed but protects your tanks and such from rocks and debris while towing.

Wink same trailer

I found that these 2 trailers are basically the same. I just bought a rockwood 1809s with pull out and I cannot wait to get it next week. I did not know which one to get but I went by the best dealer in our city. These trailers are realy well made and super well equiped compared to other brand specially the bed mattress and dinettes on which you cannot compare the quality. I have seen trailers with mattress so cheap that you cannot even use because they are so soft and pure junk. How many trailers in this size that uses a furnace with ducts. Hardly any at all except forest rivers products

I am thinking " RockWood" and " FlagStaff" both pretty much have the same meaning.... You may even have to include WildWood in the mix as a similar...

Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra.
Same truck; same options; same exact prices.

Ditto Flagstaff/Rockwood

I don't think Lou(herk7769) got what you were saying.

WHAT?!?! Sir, I am insulted!

My mind is not in the gutter! My mind IS the gutter! hehe

Sorry, my inner 13 year old occasionally gets a giggle when I hear wood and staff...

(I am a he)

I ordered a Rockwood 2702SS but was looking a Flagstaff 27BESS. It has been said again and again. These are both the same trailer just different graphics and name both Forest River. We went with the Rockwood becasue of the price we got and of coarse the interior colors were more to our liking. I was told by my sales person...." if you were at the factory and the two trailers were sitting side by side with no graphics you would not be able to tell which is which.

The waiting game begins.... Ordered Sept 21 2010
