I have 8282ws. Like Bob Caldwell above I've had a few little issues like screws loose. Did have to replace legs under sofa with wider ones so they wouldn't punch thru, but that's not trailer issue. Biggest thing was the trail express LR-C tires that came on it. One blew at about 5500 miles. Upgraded to gy marathons LR-D and good to go. Tow with 08 tundra.

Almost everyone either has or will have problems with the trail express tires. We made it through the first year and 7500 miles but just barely. One had a split on the sidewall when we took them off this spring. And with the rubber stems they were constantly loosing air. I mean lots of air. Like I had to add air them up every time we used it. Get them off as quick as you can and go to a higher ply rating. Lots and lots of threads about tires on this forum.

For me, a good TPMS system is a must also.

We are running Maxxis now on metal stems and after 8 months I finally had to add a little air to them the other day.

Have the 8282WS two years now and covered a little over 11K miles and 15 weeks camping. So far , other than the front cap, we've had a few small problems I fixed myself. The movable dinette in ours is exactly what we wanted.

Wwe love ours.
