rockwood 2715VS

Has anybody bought one yet? How does it pull? I currently have a 2014 2604WS, pulls bad even with upgraded 215 marathon tires. Wanted to trade for the new rockwood 2715VS. Looks like the tongue weight might be more & would pull better , also thought about changing tires to 15". Your thoughts?

We looked at the 2715 but I didn't like the heavy hitch weight. Didn't like having the bathroom in the nose and having to go threw the bedroom to get to it.
We bought the 2819VS Windjammer. Under 800 lb. hitch weight.
Pulls great and the V nose cuts the wind real well.

My thought is that your new trailer will pull badly, too. If you search this forum, you will find that 2604WS owners complaining of bad road manners are virtually non-existent.
It would behoove you to re-examine your hitch set up and load distribution. Don't blame the trailer. My 2014 2604WS tows so well that, except for the weight on acceleration/deceleration, I don't know it's back there.
Of course if you want a new trailer, any excuse, real or imagined, will suffice.
