Purchased a Rockwood today

My wife and I just purchased a Rockwood 8265S 5th wheel today. I will pick up the trailer next Saturday after prep, installing two slide toppers, etc. I think I got a pretty good deal because the dealer was within $600 of RV Wholesalers price including shipping charges. I will be towing the trailer with a '06 Silverado 1500 Ext. Cab with the 5.3 V8 and towing package. I know this is right at the truck's max, but we usually camp pretty close to home and don't plan on taking it through the Rockies. I think the trailer has every option available except the electric awning. We really like the free standing table & chairs. The only thing my wife kinda frowned on was the minimum carpet option. She really wanted the full carpet in the living area. Anyone else have this model? If so, how do you like it?

We have a 8281SS and we love it. That must be a new floor plan for 08.
I like it. Ours is a little longer than yours its a 30 ft bunk house.

Happy Camping,
