New Windjammer 2618W

Has anyone checked out the (new model this season) Windjammer 2618W or the equivalent Flagstaff V-Lite 26WFKS? We're interested in maybe ordering one, but our local Rockwood dealer has no stock, so it would have to be a factory order. Little leary about ordering a first-season model, especially sight unseen.

Nice looking floorplan. Personally I wouldn't worry about buying a first-season model as Windjammers have been around for awhile. But, that being said, personally I wouldn't buy any camper without actually being able to see it. Hope you're able to find either the Windjammer or Flagstaff V-Lite to actually spend some time inside.

Yeah - I feel the same way as you, but unfortunately, there's not much chance of a live preview. Being in the middle of Canada (Winnipeg), we don't have a huge choice of RV dealers to choose from - just one local dealer with the Rockwoods and another with Flagstaffs and they don't carry a lot of stock compared to some of the larger dealers; say in Alberta. Between them, they don't have a single V-front in stock. And I don't think they're gonna bring one in just so I can make up my mind.
Checking out the web... I can drive to Calgary (13 hours) or Coldwater, MI (looks like 15 hrs away) if I want a look at a 2618W. Not gonna happen.

Don't blame you a bit, that's a heck of a road trip just to check out a camper.

I bought our 8306 ss rockwood from the the dealer you are speaking of.I totally trust marylin ,Because i asked the same question if she was ordering some windjammers for the rv show coming up.I know she sold out of the windjammers in 2012 pretty quick.Let's hope.

I've heard nothing but good things about Marilyn and Holiday RV.
I take it your TT was on the lot when you found it? How was the PDI when you took delivery - pretty thorough?

We looked at 10 other dealers and holiday was the last stop.The trailer was on the lot and the last one.But they will take care of you and walk through was good.Just mention keith from stonewall and you can also see our feedback on there website.I would not worry a bit ,they are awesome.The pdi was fit 'n' finish with rockwood.No other trailer we looked at compared.

Well, we're going for it. Signed on the dotted line at Holiday RV this afternoon. They knocked almost 5% off their original quote so it came in at just over $30K. I've only met Gary, the salesman, so far as the rest of the crew is down in Vegas for the week.
Now the waiting begins (10-12 weeks).... I hate waiting, but it's still crazy cold out there, so couldn't do much with it even if it was here.

yea, i'd be interested in your review.
the DW ended up liking the 2618W or the Flagstaff twin, the 26WFKSS, better than the Rockwood 2608W/Flagstaff 26FKWS.

we're considering it because it has the front kitchen, which the DW likes better than the rear kitchen TT's.
