Newbie here in Marble Falls, Tx. WJ3029 was bought in April and will take maiden voyage to Port Aransas for the month of October. Saw a v-nose going north today, waved and honked...

We've been at Casini Ranch in Duncans Mills, CA since Monday with our brand new (we picked up from the dealer on 9/19) 2016 Ultra-V 2715VS. We're out all day today doing a little wine tasting in the area, get back to our site and what's pulled in right next to us but a Jammer!

We spent a long weekend at Crystal Springs COE on Lake Ouachita just west of Hot Springs, AR. On the way there we passed a Windjammer traveling East. At the campground we saw two V-Lites. Decided to take a look at Denby Point COE just a bit further west and there were three Windjammers in that campground.

Just returned from a 5 week 3 day 4600+ mile excursion from Denver to Bend, OR to Yakima, WA to Astoria, OR and down 101 to Ft. Bragg, CA before heading east to Colorado. I saw only TWO Jammers on the whole trip plus one being transported to CA but I don't count those being transported. The first one was near Clear Lake, CA which was a 2015 3025W. I talked to the owner while refueling but forgot to ask him if he knew about the FR forum. The other one was in Wells, NV which was an older 3008W like my 2012 in a RV park. No other V-nose trailers were spotted either.
I don't believe Windjammers are endangered...it's just that not many RVer's know the many advantages of the V nose.

I saw a Jammer last week while traveling to NC.

Enjoyed Mama Gerties back in 2011 on our last long trip with 1988 Holiday Rambler. Hail totaled it at home in 2012. That is a very nice place and hope to get back in a longer Blue Ridge trip.

We are on our first trip with our 2016 windjammer 3008w and love the front kitchen which is why we bought it plus the quality in the build for Rockwoods in general. We are towing with a f150 with v6 3.5 liter ecoboost engine with tow capacity of 12,200. Mileage hasn't been that great but did quite a bit of traveling in the mountains. Also have the equalizer hitch and have had some sway issues so mostly prefer to stay below 65 mph. Tried readjusting weight but wonder if others have had similar sway problems and any hints to solve this issue.

I have a short box quad cab 2500 Ram. Also use 2 friction sway bars and keep hiway speeds to 60 mph. LR E Carlisle tires on the Vlite and LR E Michelin tires on the truck. 75 psi in all tires. I keep an eye on what's coming up behind me so I won't be caught off guard. Only have a slight push/pull with the big trucks passing me. I believe the heavier frame (2500) compared to the 1500 and the longer (long box) frame makes a difference in sway.

Of course, this debate has gone on for decades and will continue.

I'm sure somebody can pull their 5W with a moped.

Hmm, I didn't know Dodge made mopeds!
