We have owned a Flagstaff 27RLWS since July 24, 2013 and have 16,000 miles on it and 120 nights in it. We have had very minor problems with the trailer; I wish they would tighten up the water supply lines more than hand tight; and have had it from Alaska to Arizona and a lot of places in between. We are very pleased.

Rockwood 8280WS - 2012 - Love it. Been a real good unit for us. Probably 15,000 miles - no major problems=. Great unit.

Tows great - Silverado 1500, 5.3l v/8, 6 speed GM Tranny, all towing options. Life is good. Ken

We have had a Flagstaff MicroLite for 2 years now. We have been so happy with it that we picked up a new Rockwood 2604WS today.

Everything was like new and we were able to get a good trade in value for it.

Have 6,432 miles on our 2014 8282WS since Nov 2013, and have loved every mile. Our biggest problem was having to remount the ceiling fan and replace a torn heater duct. It's a great unit for us.

Enjoy every minute!

Been a happy Rockwood 8280SS (no bedroom slide) owner since July 2008.

I have resolved every issue that has arisen myself, if they bothered me enough. The furnace doesn't work quite right, but it doesn't bother me so I've never bothered with it.

I had a roof leak at the front cap and now have some delamination. Not much, and the trailer is 7 years old. Not going to worry about it.

As far as quality goes, I think this is a really well made trailer. When we bought it we agreed that barring some disaster this would be the only RV we ever owned and since it's holding up so well that will very likely be the case. We have been to the RV shows and like our vintage better than the newer models for the most part.

Very happy with it. The Rockwood/Flagstaff are likely the best bang for buck ratio in the FR line up. You can spend money and get fancier, but not better.

Glad to hear the positive words!! My wife bought a 2015 Flagstaff 26RLWS last month and are looking forward to many years of relationship building and exploring (Texas). We believe that Flagstaff/Rockwood is a good brand and deeply believe we made a good choice.....time will tell. Great to hear good words!!
