All Windjammer Owners

With nothing else to do but sit around the house and wish I was out camping in my Windjammer, I thought it would be fun to start a thread to see how many other Winjammer owners frequent this forum. I am interested to know which year and model you have and how happy you are with it. Have you had any problems?

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.

Happy Campers

We purchased a new WJ 3001w in April of 2014 and have pulled it over 10,000 miles so far with right at 100 nights camping since then. We pull with a 2013 1/2 ton GMC extended cab, 5.3, 3.73 gears, stock suspension. I added a K&N cold air system and some performance dual exhausts, so we do very well at any altitude and terrain. We pulled on a 30+ day trip from N. Texas across 11 states including Nevada's Death Valley, Oregon's Crater Lake, Idaho, Wyoming's Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, then back down through Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma with no problems at all. Highest crest with the trailer was 8,300' and we topped in 3rd gear at 50 MPH/4,200 RPM still pulling strong.

Love our WJ and have had only very minor issues with it so far. Mini blinds in kitchen broke, vinyl strip at bottom of shower door split, one of the stabilizers lost a split pin, and that is about it. I have tightened and fixed some other minor things but figure that is normal when you pull your house over rough roads.

We have a 2013 Windjammer 3008W with about 18000 miles towed so far. We love the layout. Took it to Alaska for a 4 month trip in 2014. The only serious issue we had was it left the factory with the wrong axle brackets which made the trailer ride so low that the tires rubbed the fender wells. Forest River replaced the axles and the tires even before their recall for the issue. Other than that only a few minor fixes taken care of under warranty. Its going to go cross country next summer on another long duration trip to visit our daughter in Seattle, stopping to sight see along the way.

We have a 2015 Flagstaff 26VFFKS- Vlite. It is very close to the Windjammer. Same outside body style with the V-nose front. When first bought, we had several problems (nothing real major) but fixed by the dealer which took longer than it should. It pulls very good. I am still trying to learn this TT but just like anything new, it takes a little experience. I need to get it out camping. But it has been at the dealer through the summer and fall. Been out 1 time. This is my 4th rv, so I am not a rookie, nor am I an expert. Have fun.
