The 8289 is not a rear kitchen. it is a mid kitchen with an island for the sink. The 8282 is also mid kitchen but no island. Instead it has a rolling table/island. The 8289 has a fixed free standing table in the slide. The 8282 has the couch along te back whereas the 8289 has the recliners. The big difference for mewas the 8289 has two gray tanks, one for the galley and one for the bath where the 8282 has only one gray tank, so 76 gals total vs 38.

hehe I figured with OC doing the Mod it was gong to be a BIT more involved than "just" double sided tape

dcheatwood -I've had no problems with the TV latch so far. I do hold it down with my hand after the first time I released it and thought the whole thing was going to fly up into the cabinets.

Love your solution for the toilet paper holder. Will have to look for one of those.

Hey BamaBob,

How do you find the towing with the F150 ecoboost? I'm looking at an 8282 and also have the ecoboost but with the 5.5 box.

Cheers

We just signed the papers on the Flagstaff cousin as well. As soon as we signed the papers it went straight into storage. Going to be a long winter. Did your island come with a wood or Corian top? We upgraded to the diamond package. We were expecting a Cotian counter top but got wood. Just wondering.

That's a change for 2014. My 2014 came with the wood table top but I insisted they switch it back to Corian. It took 2 months but we got it done. After upgrading I expected the Corian as well. Thought the wood top looked awful.

Thanks. Not only does the wood top look bad, I am sure it will dinged up real easy. I am going to talk to our dealer Monday. This is our second camper from them and they are usually good to work with. We will see what happens.

According to the updated Forest River website, the 8282WS pin weight just gained 140lbs (from 1184lbs to 1324lbs)...

They are lying dogs.. My Vcross is listed at 1100 lbs pin weight, and weighed in at 2200. And I sure didn't put 1000 lbs of stuff in the front.

Maybe someone here can give you a sense of the REAL pin weight on your unit, from real weights.
