Having read a lot of threads about Rockwood trailers I am having certain negative images.. tires blowing etc. Also got a Evolution Edge CS for my 2008 Ford f-150 Lariat 5.4L, set it up with tow package see how that preforms. Later
Well he trip is over and overall everything went well. Only two issues, which really didn't have anything to do with the trailer itself. We got a pull thru spot, we told the park personnel that we were new to this trailer thing, but were experienced campers, he led us with his golf cart to the spot. Showed us where to park. After he left, we found out that the black water hose was a little bit short of the effluent hole, naturally I had already decoupled. Got that resolved, move trailer back. After "leveling" the trailer and deploying the electric landing gear, trailer still not quite level. Did not bring various thickness of boards to put under the tires on the side that is low. However, thought with electric landing gear, which appear to work in unison, I believe if the boards were under the tires I would have the landing gear, on the board side, would not be in touch with ground. Is my logic correct? The Edge CS unit, tuned for towing worked real well. MPG wasn't anything to write about, 11.8 mpg, but the shift points were definitely changed and the shift was done faster as far as shifting speed, but kept the gear in longer before shifting to the next. Planning next trip in about two weeks.

We absolutely love our V-Lite 30 WTBS which is the brother trailer to your Windjammer. The layout is awesome with the master bath in the back. No other floor plans out there like it. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we love ours. Our first time out was Memorial Weekend as well and we leave Monday for a 4 night getaway.

Enjoy!

Ready to take out our new 5er for the first trip in mid May. Very excited but then had to travel for business. Yikes!

Memorial day Friday, first trip, we were set up by a river in the Adirondacks by 11 am when I woke up in Istanbul on Thursday. What a rush. Love the Rockwood.

Going back this weekend and leave for Sao Paulo Brazil Monday morning. Work just gets in the way!
