We've seen just one, a 3008 just like ours. We've camped just over 30 nights this year

To Mkollath --- Do you really tow at windjammer with a Tahoe? How does that work for you? I have a 2010 F-150 with the 5.4 and I am looking to get a windjammer, and I am a bit nervous if it is enough truck. I saw that the Tahoe has a tow capacity of 7700. Is that accurate. Any feedback on your towing experience would be appreciated. Thanks.

We used to tow with a 2010 F-150, you'll be fine !! We just trade for the F-250 because were looking to jump up to a 5er. But the F-150 pulled our Windjammer 3065 with no problem ! We also had the 5.4 V-8

i have the 5.3L tahoe Z71..i use the Equalizer WD system which does help dramatically...ideally, it is not the best TV but it does well for me...we stay flat land with some "hills" but we are not mountain climbing with it...that will be the next purchase will be the larger TV eventually

Southpaw, I tow our Windjammer with a 1500 Silverado (2 wheel drive) with the 5.3L. To be honest, the trailer may be a bit much for my TV. We flat land the majority of the time so it's okay but not great. Going to do a lot of looking this winter for a good quality used 2500 or something equivalent. Tried checking in tonight on the Ecoboost engine in Ford but the salesperson at the dealership was worthless. All of her information was left blank or read "TBA"

We've been towing our with a Escalade with the 6.2 all summer and it did a great job through the mountains but IMHO it was to scary when the wind blew. I pick up my new 2500 Duramax this Saturday and will break it in over the winter, it should be a great summer next year.

Come to the 2012 OMI (Tadpole) Rally and I am certain you will see a few V-nose trailers. We had 3 at the 2011 event!!

We've had our 3065W for over a year and have yet to see another one on the road or at a campground. We have seen Flagstaff V-Lites, but no Windjammers. We'll be doing a LOT of camping in ours this fall and winter so maybe we'll see some on our way south. Right now I am in Newberry Michigan hanging out with the "Yoopers". We'll be heading to the western side of the U.P. on Saturday and hanging out there for a week before making our way toward warmer weather...after a short stop at Forest River to do a little warranty work.

Endangered Species? Heaven forbid! We love our Windjammer and have made several long trips with it. It is very comfortable to us. We do have to go light on cargo because with the four of us our tv is at maximum capacity. One thing we have had a problem with is the caulking on the roof started to split and have gaps in it. We attribute this to it being hotter than usual over the summer and the trailer always being exposed to the sun. We bought some of the same type caulk, cleaned up the areas neccessary and recaulked. Overall the trailer does a wonderful job of providing us with a place we can call our summer home wherever we take it.

Good luck with your Windjammer and have a nice fall season.

We have taken our Windjammer from OH to Orlando, FL on 75 with a 2007 Suburban 4WD, 5.3 with no major problems. I use the Equilizer hitch, fantastic. I'm light on horsepower at times but I've never been in a hurry. Why have a big engine I only need for a few times a year? Can tow at 65 mph with no feeling or problems. We have a trailer for 40+ years. We thought about a truck before getting the Suburban but with 3 grandchildren, we needed a "people-hauler" more than a "cargo-hauler". We had DVD players installed in the front seat head rests for the 2nd and 3rd row viewers. Everyone use wireless headsets, fantastic for grandchildren on the way to Disney.
