With the layout of the 8282WS it might not have the galley tank. I agree with Dave Monica about the lack of grey water storage if it does not have the second tank. Forrest River WILL NOT increase or add any water or waste capacity to a unit. We had ours back at the factory for some warranty work and asked to get a bigger fresh tank. The answer was a resounding NO and the dealer would not even discuss the issue. The smallish fresh tank is a bit of a problem but not nearly as much as an undersized waste tank.

All,
OK here is the correct answer right from FF.... the 8282ws Only has One gray tank because of where the galley sits and also where the axles are. The 8289ws has two tanks, because of where the sink is and where the bathroom is. They also said it was because of getting the Right pitch for the tanks. So I guess we may just zero in on the 8289ws....

Phil

We bought the 8289 last July. We had been looking at different fifth wheels for several years, we always seemed to migrate back to this floor plan. We moved from a 34 foot class A to this one, although we only had an opportunity to use it six weekends we really enjoyed it. The bedroom is a little tight compared to the motorhome but the kitchen and living area are pretty roomy for a smaller fifth wheel. The 8280WS was our second choice. It is a little lighter and the wife really liked the kitchen with the nice pantry and the big U shaped dinette.

If we had to redo it I think we would choose the same again. We'll see if we still feel this way 10 years from now.
