2011 Rockwood 2608SS Feedback

Seriously considering the 2608SS and wondering if anyone can provide some feedback on this trailer. I will be pulling it w/ a Toyota Tundra w/ the big V-8 and a towing package.

Thanks in advance

Posts: 653 some specs on your T.T and you'll get the info you need / want. I have the T.T listed in my signature which weights in at approx. 6200 lbs.

I pull it w / the TV listed and it does just fine here in Florida / Ga. With my T.T and T.V.... I do not feel I would be comfortable in the big hills of TENN / N.C.

Good luck !

I myself pull with te Tundra crewmax, 5.7 with tow package. My trailer is about 8k fully loaded for camping ( i do not carry water) and power wise it does great, it can really pull... my trailer is longer than that one and that does make it wiggle ever so slightly on local backroads on NC. Does fine on interstate/highways. Advice ~60 mph is the bes for gas mileage. Get a good wd hitch w/sway control (i have reese staight line) and you will be good unless you are in the rockies

Not really worried about the tow vehicle, it has a 11,600# towing package, just wanted to see if anyone has any thoughts on this particlar model

We collected our 2608SS last July. Here are our thoughts so far:

Living area is huge with the slide out. We’ve had 7 people in there and still lots of room.
Lots of kitchen and general storage.
We order the free standing table and chairs in place of the dinette, this gives you more room and seating options.
Shower-room is great, no knees pressed against anything when you sit down. Sink a good size (I couldn’t even wash my face in our last one)
Bedroom fine, plenty of storage. Our daughter and my niece (21 year olds) came on one trip and slept on the blow up sofa bed, they said it was large and comfortable.

Storage OK but not amazing; our folding table doesn’t fit in either locker; I open the bedroom door and slide it in there for travel.
Ordered unit with power awing, power jacks and power tongue. Love them all, makes set up and tear down a breeze.

We haven’t had any problems I would put down to the layout, more some shoddy finishing by Forest River and could have happened with any new unit; shower leaked, black tank flush leaked, major slide problem, some poor finishing. All of these fixed under warranty.

All and all we love our 2608SS and would recommend it for any couple, but it’s not a layout for a family.

Roll on spring !!!

Picked up ours last sept. Took it out about 6 times last year , love it. Just check all of your fittings, the flush connection was only hand tight inside.

2608SS for one year now

My family of four, including 16y/o and 5y/o just spent a week quite comfortably. We choose the 2608SS for it's larger living area, willing to set up bedding each night for the kids. We felt like permanent bunks reduced the flexibility of living area arrangements. Shower is still leaking...have sealed everything I can find but other than that we are doing great. Accused the 16y/o son of using the toilet too much until we figured out the black and grey sensors were reversed! We towed with a Nissan Titan crew cab and due to the short wheel base we felt the trailer push us around a bit in the wind. Bought a Pro Pride hitch and now it travels fantastically.
