=======================

Only con I can think of is when you go to sell it the next buyer will notice how many States (miles you've traveled) and it may affect the price.

Happy trails,

2016 Windjammer 3025W - Zero camping miles. We just bought it a couple of weeks ago and will be taking it out over Christmas for our first run. This camper is absolutely beautiful and we can't wait for the trip.

We have a 2016 3029W and love everything about it. The only problem we had was with the iRV 66 entertainment system, but that was so efficiently handled and easily replaced, I dont really consider it a problem.

Hi 2015/16 30wikss V-Lite. The Windjammer & V-Lite are built on the same Assembly line in Millersburg Indiana. The only difference between the two units is the interior fabrics and colors and the decals on the outside. Flagstaff has upgraded the decals on the outside of the unit from last fall when we went on the factory tour. I like the new graphics which puts it more on par with the windjammers. We went with the V-Lite because We liked the interior colors better. The W3025 is the same floor plan in a windjammer as the Flagstaff 30wikss V-Lite .

Hope this helps Tim
copied this post from Capt. Mike he has good advice on replacing your tires if TT came with C load range tires. I upgraded to Carlisle load range E tires N speed rating = 87 mile/hour most trailer tires have a speed rating of 60-65 mile/hour. As most seasoned RV owners will say 60 to 65 miles/hour is a safe speed to travel at. With the N speed rating at 60 mile/hour you are not running at the max speed rating of the tire.

We have a Windjammer 3008W, 2014 model, that we've probably towed close to 20K miles, with no MAJOR problems. Love the floor plan and the room inside. DO upgrade the tires from the load range C tires that come on the trailer. We had a blowout with our load range Cs and then went to load range E. WORLD of DIFFERENCE in how the trailer tows.

Windjammer and V-Lite are both built on the same line. Only difference is interior color/fabric patterns and some cosmetic differences inside and out, but with either trailer, you can't go wrong. I think it is just a matter of personal preference.

2016 3001w

Just bought our first RV on 29 October, a 2016 WindJammer 3001W. So far we have been to three parks in the Fort Worth area and have towed the trailer about 200 miles. Getting ready to head to the lower Rio Grand Valley at the end of the month for the rest of the winter, then a Florida/East Coast tour in June through September. So far very pleased with it. Thanks to everyone for sharing your experience with the WindJammer and related V-nose trailers!

Nice! Swift, watch your hitch weight on this rig. We got our 2014 WJ3001w from Fun Town in Cleburne and they put a 1,000# WD hitch on ours; we were 75# over the rated weight on the first day! We moved to an Equalizer 1,400# so it would level up the TV. Much better handling now. It may just be the camera angle, but it looks like it has set the back of your TV down quite a bit. I would really take it to the scales and find out how much everything weighs as soon as possible. Here is a link to a helpful site if you are unfamiliar with how to weigh your rig and find the hitch weight: Learn To RV: How to Weigh a Travel Trailer
Our 2014 model said the hitch weight was about 860#, it was almost 200# over than on the trip home from the dealer with only the added weight of the battery and propane. We love our WJ, hope you will too.

We have a 2015 3008W absolutely love it. Only had a recall on the 2nd AC but other than that no problems. We upgraded the tires and it tows a lot better. We camp someplace every month for an extended weekend except for Nov.to March.
