Love Our Rockwood 2604

After 3 months we still love our Rockwood 2604. The floorplan is perfect for us. Plenty of kitchen storage even without a pantry. In fact, we have unused storage space inside and outside.

Also, by taking the dinky little table that fits between the 2 chairs home, we can now spin our chairs around at will and take advantage of the rear view that is usually the best at a campsite. Also took the little screen at the bottom of the rear window off and increased visibility tremendously.

Our 2011 Toyota Tundra doesn't even know it is there. For short, non interstate trips, I don't even use the Equalizer hitch. No sway or shimmy at any speed.

All in all this may be a lifetime purchase for a couple of 69 year olds.

Glad to hear that you're enjoying your camper.

I don't understand though, why you'd not use your equalizer hitch...only on the interstate?? Emergency situations can happen anywhere! Since that hitch is so easy to engage/disengage, particularly with a power jack, why would you intentionally not use it?

We have been considering the 2604, but would prefer the recliners instead of the swivel chairs. Do you think there is enough room to replace the swivel chairs and put the recliners in front of the door, then go into the RV via the front door.

Also, how is the clothing storage? Is there enough room for hanging clothes? We are hoping to be on the road for a month or so at a time?

Looking forward to your input.

That would work if you did not use the back door. They could not be large recliners due to the space required to move them so you can bring the slideout in.

recliners might be out of the question with the slide. We have a 2604 also and you have to invert one chair over the other right by the door in order to have room for the slide to come in. jacksum2 you say you don't need the equilizer hitch, you do know that the tounge weight is over 700lbs? Plus you now have no sway control on the trlr.

Actually you don't have to invert the chairs. We never have.

Also, the Tundra has sway control plus we have no sway,

I just recently bought a 2904. It's about 3' longer than the 2604.
It has 2 small Lane swivel rocker recliners.
They do slightly block the door when pulled away from the wall and in the reclining position.
The one recliner has to be turned sideways for the slideout to come in.
I don't see why atleast 1 recliner wouldn't work?

We also have a 2604 and like it a lot. We move the chairs but do not invert them. Works o.k for us.

Yes. We put ours sie by side with the backs to the door and there is plenty of room for the slide to come in.

jacksum2; you do know that the sway control on your Tundra has little to no effect on trl sway contol. If you really get in a situation that the trl starts to sway the truck sway control will have minumual effect on the trl. If you still have the Equilizer hitch from your old trl I'd recommend using it. It's far better to have it and not need, it then to need it and not have it, if only for your families safe
