8280 SS questions

I am considering this fifth wheel trailer and would like some more information and I hope to find out where in this forum.

The brochure doesn't tell me about the frame, brakes and axle. Does anyone know where I can get this outside of a dealer.

I would also like information from any current owners of the 8280 SS.

Thank you

Well I guess that there are few that visit this forum or maybe the 8280SS is not that polular.

Maybe there aren't that many people on this forum who have the Rockwood 5th wheel's. The 8280 is probably built much like the 8' wide travel trailers. My 8315SS has Alko-Kober rubber torsion suspension on a steel I beam frame. Brakes are 10", wheels 15". The walls are laminated construction with an aluminum perimeter frame (meaning minimal vertical "studs").

I looked at the 8280, like the rear kitchen arrangement, but it has very limited wardrobe space for hang up clothes.

Good luck in your shopping adventure.

Sorry I overlooked you post. Don't know why I missed it.

John is correct, they are built like the 8" wide TTs. Below is a link to the 8 ' wide trailers and 5th wheels standard features.
