My wife and I were looking for a rear living room style trailer and when we saw the 30wrls v lite we liked the layout. Loooking at the total package it seemed better than the rest we had looked at and the final was the price was right.

Weight and layout.

I liked a 27' Outback but it was too heavy for my TV. In the Flagstaff, just the dinette slides out, giving me room but keeping the weight down.

We went to several RV shows , looked at and took pictures of the ones we liked . Criteria was outside kitchen , bunks , 1/2 ton towable
Here in DFW area there are a lot of rv dealers to choose from . Explorer USA in Mesquite we found rock wood and the salesman was watching a football game " if you find something you like come and get me " . I looked on my phone for another location and we drove to it , talk to salesman David and showed the model we liked FR831RKSS . HE DIDN'T have it on the lot , found one and had it delivered. They worked very hard to get our business , not like the other guys . My wife works a full time job then does H&R block during tax season , he met us at her office to sign the papers
Great customer service , great trailer l no problems

The Rockwood/Flagstaff are exceptionally built. I'm in and out of RV manufacturers every day for the past 25 years and they are one if the best built in the industry.

We bought a Flagstaff V-Lite, then a Flagstaff 5th wheel, inside 8 months, same dealer, same salesman.

That should tell you we believe in that brand, their warranty work (only had one semi-urgent problem with the V-Lite), and the dealer.

We haven't even done the shake down on the 5er yet (bought it 2.5 weeks ago) so I'll revisit this thread down the road. ...knocking on wood...

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:
Flagstaff 5er 2014 8528 IKWS, Platinum Package, Regency Interior "Buffy"
F250 Super Duty 2013 Tuxedo Black "Biff"

First we shopped around for a dealer we liked. Then we locked in our requirements on budget, weight, sleeping arrangements, etc... (Can't have a toddler in a top bunk!).

It took him 8 months, but he finally found us a 29QBSS so we ended up with a flagstaff. Never been happier.

This is bigger than I was first expecting, having grown up in 16-18' trailers, but we're fairly happy with it.
There's no use crying over spilled milk, unless it's on your keyboard.
