No problems at all with my Windjammer.

We had a Rockwood Roo for seven years with zero problems. We now have a Rockwood fifth and the only problem we have had is the popup tv mechanism broke. Rockwood is pretty well made for its price range. To bad they don't make larger fifth wheels.

I don't currently own a Rockwood but I had a pop-up just a few years ago. It was our 2nd trailer ever and we never had any major problems with it.

Sold it to some friends who AFAIK still have it. Although I don't think they've kept up on the maintenance with it because it had some water damage the last I saw it.

We are now on our fourth trailer (3rd FR product) and (knock on wood) have not had any major problems with any of them.

My parents are on their 5th trailer in the same time-frame and also have had no major problems.

I'm on my 2nd year with this Flagstaff and other than a few initial visits to the dealer, there hasn't been anything I couldn't handle myself. The Forum has been an eyeopener to be very observant and consider many of the points others have encountered. Thanks to all the contributors! There's no substitute for checking these "toys" over regularly from front to back and roof to undercarriage with a proactive eye. Next season it's getting "D" tires

No issues with our Rockwood Roo 23ss. Third summer already with it. Haven't had to take it back to the dealer yet, so knock on wood..

When we picked up our Roo 25 RS the top of the rear bed slide hit the wall mounted cabinet. Local dealer had to remove the cabinet and relocate it by a couple inches.

We had a 2015 Flagstaff and used it for two 1000 mile round trips with no issues other than a broken closet latch before trading it after a year. Very well built for a light weight.

2015 - 3001w Rockwood Windjammer. Zero issues from the beginning. Only self inflicted ones. I've upgraded the power converter and added a power supply monitor just because I wanted to. This TT has been wonderful. Oh yes, I replaced all four tires after having 2 blowouts in one trip.
