We have taken two of the grand kids at time and the swing out couch works well for them with a little extra foam added. All and all it works great for us.

Hunter1, we are heading to Wana RV this weekend to look at a 2109s. I'm pretty sure we're sold on this model, but how was your experience with Wana RV? They have been great with answering all of our questions so I'm hoping the rest of the process will be just as good. Any information would be appreciated.

2109s

My husband and I looked at this model yesterday. Very disappointed. The fit and finish of these trailer could be a lot better. What we found:

- Poor caulking in the corners
- Poor fitting outside access panels
- Poor placement of electrical outlets
- And lots of wasted space. ie.. the pull out sofa when opened up was over a foot away from the outside wall, exposing the poorly fitted outside access pane. Not to mention, the large gap that a sleeper could fall into. The sofa opened up is pretty much not fit for sleeping.

The only thing we liked was the look and quality of the cabinetry.

They just do not make trailers like they used to.

Look at one thoroughly before you purchase it.

Poor quality

Well folks, you are going to find all sorts of things wrong with ANY RV. Might as well go back to the basics, and get a tent.

Not true

We have owne many trailers of good quality. If you pay good money no reason you should not get a quality product. The fit, finish and design of this 2109s was very disappointing. Can't believe the sofa bed when pulled out, was not a bed at all. Even for one person, there is a drop off. Bathroom very tight.

Bottom line, they just do not make trailers the way they used to.

We looked at another rockwood, a 23 that had a u-shaped dinette. Tried several configurations but could not come up with something comfortable for anyone to sleep on. The cushions were different sizes and did not lay flat.

Anyone who can give us some ideas for a good lite weight trailer, we would appreciate it. So far it has been a very disappointing experience.

Ruthie and Billy

The flagstaff 21 is exactly like the rockwood 2109 from what we hear. It is mostly just the two of us. But there are times another couple comes with us, and if the sofa bed in the flagstaff is same as rockwood it is useless. Why they have over a foot of dead space when the sofa is pulled out is beyond us, very poor planning on the drawing board. We are at the point of holding onto our 1993 Sunline.

When we pull out the sofa bed you can sleep two on it. If it was any longer and we needed to go to the br we would have to crawl over it

We use the space behind the sofa for additional storage. I believe that is what the space is for since they put an outside access door there. When the slide is out, it really isn't in the way. We have some issues with the trim inside as well, but for the money and what we have to tow with, we love the trailer and feel it was the best choice for us.

2109s

I don't think anyone is really understanding what I am saying.
The sofa in the 2109s when pulled out has about a foot plus gap from the back edge of the sofa to the outside wall.
A small child could fall in it. Plus the outside hatch is very poorly fitted in that
space. There is no way two adults could sleep there, and the trailer is advertised as sleeping 4.

And the same with the 23 ft. Rockwood. The one that has a u-shaped dinette. You cannot configure the cushions to make a flat bed area.

You could make all kinds of modifications to fix the factory's poor fit and finish. But then it cost you extra. The product should be built with a little more pride to begin with is what I am saying.

Not looking like we will be buying a new trailer very soon if this what is out there for new trailers.

Very disappointed.

Billy and Ruthie
