Smile New Rockwood Ultra Lite 2902WS on the way..

After looking over our choices at the RV Show last weekend we pulled the trigger and ordered a Rockwood Ultra Lite 2902WS. It was a good run....but time to upgrade from our hybrid Roo 23SS.

While it will be 8 weeks or so until it comes in, I would appreciate hearing from any 2902 owners with their experiences and any suggestions on what extra equipment we might want to add.

That's a great floor plan. We looked at that floor plan a lot before we bought ours.

We really like that floorplan. What will you be using to tow it?

I was at the Pittsburgh RV show on Sunday and ordered the same trailer. Originally I had a deal done on a Signature 8329SS but after going home and really thinking about safely hauling the trailer I went and ordered the 2902WS instead. What was really appealing about the 2902 is that the tong and UVW is surprisingly light for a 34 foot trailer (674 lbs / 6596 lbs). My tow rig is a 2014 Nissan Armada and I feel much better about ordering the lighter trailer. The 8329ss was my absolute favorite layout but with three bump outs it is too heavy for my half ton Armada.

How did you get yours laid out?

I got the following....
- Emerald Package
- Maple(w/ Solid Maple Glaze Finished Cabinet Doors)
- 15,000 BTU A/C
- Optional 32″ LCD TV w/ 5.1 Digital Dolby Surround Sound Speaker System
- Day/Night Shades
- Swivel Rocker Recliners ILO Chaise Lounge
- Free Standing Table and Chairs
- Stainless Steel Appliances
- 3 Extra Maxxair® Ventilation Fan and Vent Cover (Bedroom, Bathroom, and Kitchen)
- Rear Ladder
- Awning Slide Topper
- Thermopane Windows
- Power Tongue Jack
- Power Stabilizer Jacks
- Electronically Controlled Heated Holding Tanks

I really want the counter top extension and Lazy boy upgrade but my dealer said it is not possible on the 2902. He is currently doing some research because I found one online that has those upgrades. The original 8329SS I wanted had the lazy boy chairs and they were really comfortable.

Ours will be very similar with mostly the same options...we chose the Maple with Aspen interior. We did not get the stainless fridge, opting for the wood panels on it. Got the power stab jacks but totally forgot to add the power tongue jack, ...but I need the exercise and can add it later if I get lazy.

We also asked about the countertop extension that we saw in some other similar floorplans. Not sure why it is not an option on the 2902WS but I thought about adding it myself.

We ended up ordering from RVWholesalers because: 1 - That is where we got our last trailer in 2008 which worked out well, and 2 - they outbid the dealer at the Cleveland RV show by about $1500.

I think I got a pretty good deal. Mine came in at $30,290. I really only shopped the one dealer I hope I did not get hosed. I could not find a cheaper one online with the options that I have.

$2574 - Convenience Package B
$145 - Maple(w/ Solid Maple Glaze Finished Cabinet Doors)
$145 - Wood Look Floor
$181 - 15,000 BTU A/C
$435 - Optional 32″ LCD TV w/ 5.1 Digital Dolby Surround Sound Speaker System
$181 - Day/Night Shades
$254 - Free Standing Table and Chairs
$290 - Stainless Steel Appliances
$239 - Extra Maxxair® Ventilation Fan and Vent Cover
$305 - Bedroom Extra Maxxair® Ventilation Fan and Vent Cover
$305 - Kitchen Extra Maxxair® Ventilation Fan and Vent Cover
$116 - Rear Ladder
$290 - Small Awning Slide Topper
$363 - Large Awning Slide Topper
$653 - Thermopane Windows
$138 - Power Tongue Jack
$508 - Power Stabilizer Jacks
$218 - Electronically Controlled Heated Holding Tanks

Very nice floorplan. Congrats, guys!

I don't see any reason that the factory couldn't provide Lazy Boy recliners and a counter top extension on that model. The 5th wheel version Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8280WS offers the Lazy Boys but has drawers on the end of the kitchen cabinet where the extension would go.

Yea, I am working with them on it.

Another couple questions about hitch setup.

What brand or style weight distribution hitch/anti sway bars should I be looking at to get? My previous camping rig was a Popup so I am new to hauling such a long heavy trailer.

I use a 12K Equal-i-zer 4 point hitch with my F-150 and 29' TT.
