New to forum and Rockwood

We just placed and order for 8296ss Rockwood sign. ultra lite. Trading in our Trail Bay and wondering if any comments on this new TT we should know about. We are really impressed with the kitchen and bathroom. Did not order the tv for the bedroom and need suggestions.

Hello lierz,

Welcome to the forums.
I believe you'll like the 8296SS.
Our 8315SS is pretty much the same floor-plan and we love it. It's very roomy. The DW especially love the large amount of counter space and storage in the kitchen area.

8315SS


Hope you don't have to wait too long for delivery. Until then, visit the forums often.

Cream cabinets

No chevy, I opted for the wood cabinets and black appliances with the tan upholtery. Saw in another forum before we ordered about the cream laminate coming loose on some. I really like the cream though, but DH was leary. Chose black as I personally think it is easier to keep clean. Just my preference.

Mattress topper

Michael, are you talking about a waffle mattress topper for your bed? Glad to hear you really like your rockwood. Did you go with the 15" TV in the bedroom or did you use another one?

Have you been looking at my photos???

lierz,
The mattress topper is a 4" Memory Foam. It's very comfortable. I sleep like a baby on it.

The 15" tv is from Wal-Mart. I don't think the bedroom tv was an option in '06, when I bought my 8315SS.

Most all Forest River trailers are ducted through the ceiling. If the vents line up to where you could install other ones, then it's simply a matter of buying a matching vent from your RV dealer, and cutting a hole to install it. Ours has no vent, either, but it does have the Fantastic fan power roof vent in the bath that works as it says...FANTASTIC!!

lierz,

It's not that hard to add a A/C vent in the bathroom.

Looks good.

Where are these "channels?" While installing a second cable wall plate with the air on in the camper, I found a fair amount of air coming out of a random spot in the ceiling against the side of the camper. I thought that perhaps the entire drop roof was pressurized, or I have a significant pressure leak somewhere!
