Are Windjammer trailers an endangered species?

Just a question out of curiosity. We have a 2012 Windjammer 3008W and have been out on six trips for 16 nights in various parts of Missouri. While driving to and from on these trips plus being at the campgrounds we have yet to see another Windjammer trailer. We have also made a trip to Colorado (not with the TT) but driving 10 hours each way and did a lot of RV watching; never saw a Windjammer. Is the Windjammer a fairly new line by Rockwood? I know there are units out there because of the various posts on the forum.

3855 miles in one trip and not one V-nose on the road. I only saw one Flagstaff V-cross at a seasonal site in Terrell, Tx.

But, judging from trying to get one at RVW this summer, someone is buying them as soon as they get them in stock. They usually only stock the 3008s and 3065s tho. We wanted the 3001 and had to order it to get the atrium windows and regular table and chairs.

So, I guess all and all, we'll just remain unique.

We've seen 3 V-Nose trailers on our July trip so they are out there. When we bought ours the dealer told us that when they get them in, they don't stick around long before they are sold off.

Our trip last summer never saw one in 6000km, this year we have seen 5 between the Windjammer and V-Lites.

excluding the OMI Rally we saw a Windjammer 3065 last fall- it was the same as our V-Lite. we stopped by to say hi and they said they had noticed ours- 3 hours later we went back to our campsite.

We've done 40 nights so far and not encountered one Windjammer anywhere other than our own. In fact, this past weekend was the first time we've even seen a V-nose other than our own, but it was a V-cross.

Another trip out this weekend and did not see another Windjammer trailer. We did have a V-nose 5'er in the campground with us. A V-Cross unit. Owners were kind enough to give us a tour.
