V-Lite series

Is the V-Lite series part of the Super Lite line or the Classic line? Thanks in advance.

Can't answer your question but do you know that all the Flagstaff/Rockwood V-nose trailers were discontinued last year. Either 2018 or 2019 models were the last ones.

I do. Trying to decide if that's a concern or not.

Shouldn't be, since they're constructed the same as other Rockwood/Flagstaff TTs.

They are more on par with the Classic Super Lite as for amenities and construction.

I know there are still a few new ones out there.

Super Lite, as far as I know. At least that's what it says on my 27VRL.

That's what I've found confusing. The one we're looking at says V-Lite.

Mine says SuperV. Since there is no SuperV line I'm assuming that means it's part of the Super Lite line as it used to be listed under the V-Lite's on FR's website.

My 2015 V-Lite is not considered a classic super light. In 2015 there regular Flagstaff tt where considered Classic supper lights. There are different models so I'd do a search on the V series.

Purely semantics here, if a V nose is what you want, the floor plan is acceptable do it! There aren't many carryovers left in inventory. We're on our 5th season and not only do we still like it, but haven't seen anything we like as well

Agreed. We love our 2015 27VRL Emerald. Perfect for two people and the occasional guest.

My wife says if we get the V nose, it has to last us to retirement. 11 years. My curiosity was the frame. Our Super Lite has a thinner frame than the V-Lite. I'm hoping the larger frame on the V-Lite will make it move less when camping and last longer.

From my experience, you'll never get all the shake out of it. Volumes have been written on the forum. Bal-chocks or equivalent on the wheels, jt strongarms if you want to go to the expense, keep the stabilizers extended not much more than half way. either additional stabilizer jacks mounted fore and aft of axles or a couple of screw jacks on frame rail as I did and the Camco short jacks under the steps...and no roughhousing in the trailer youall!
