That'd be my choice

I have a 27vrl on order and one of my camper friends just ordered the Rockwood equivalent. Anxious to see it

I have read on here they are built in the same facility with only cosmetic differences. We decided on floor plans and found them at both dealers. We bought the Windjammer as the dealer was around 50 miles from us and V-Lite Dealers were all in excess of 100 miles. Personally I like the Windjammer name better, but the floor-plans are identical. BTW We love our 3008W.

as far as i know, they're still the same exact trailer, except for outside decals and interior decor.

and don't expect to see significant gas mileage savings.
many think that the V-nose trailers will reduce mpg, but most owners report only fractional improvement.

We just took our new 30WFKSS out on its maiden voyage. Love it, just like posted above not sure of any real differences other that cosmetic.

I am partial to the Windjammer, because I own one. Fit and finish is good, tows great. Probably can't go wrong either way, those v noses do turn heads.

We have a V Lite 30 wrls, we love the big window in the back during rainy days and late in the evening. The v front is a large closet. There is lots of room in it for the 2 of us enough that we plan to live in it for 3 months somewhere down south next wither. Lots of cupboards and appears to be fairly well built. The only drawback not much outside storage space. Both the V Lite and the Windjammer are very similar either way you will enjoy.

Hi, we are on our third season with our 3008W and we also love the floor plan. --One piece of advice make sure you have good tires when you pick up your unit, no cheap China imports, blowouts are not fun.
