Question Rockwood M-2602 and M-2605: What other brand names are these labelled as?

Hello. New to RVing but not new to RVs. Been dreaming and reading about them since I was a kid, and been planning my upcoming purchase for about eight months.

So I see that the Rockwood M-2605 is also re-badged as a Flagstaff 26RKS. (Interestingly its floorplan looks very similar to the Keystone Outback 26RKS, although that's about 1000lb heavier dry. I thought they were an entirely different maker?) And I'd bet the Rockwood M-2602 is re-badged as a Flagstaff, although I can't find old brochures to be certain.

What are the various brand names and model names that are alternatives to the Rockwood M-2602 and M-2605? And are there old brochures online?

Also Trail Lite by R-Vision Trail-Cruiser M-26RKS. Looks identical to the M-2605 and is almost identical in dry weight.

They are totally different companies. But, you notice that most companies have similar floorplans. There is only so much you can do inside a certain size box.

first, Rockwood and Flagstaff are twin brands, which is quite common in the RV industry.
only difference is outside decals and interior decor. they are both built in the same factory, on the same assembly line.

second, you must be looking at NADA, cause that's the only place i've seen the M- before the model number. it's not necessary when discussing models.

third, you do know that R-Vision has been out of business for a year or two, right? you shouldn't have issues with getting help with appliances and other things that all manufacturers install.
but you'll be out of luck with its construction, like walls and roof.

fourth, i would help if you posted what year of trailers you are looking at, if you want help with old brochures.
there's no company website for Trail Lite/Cruiser anymore.

Right. My question is, are there any other twin brands for these models?

I noticed, but it may be beside the point. Here's why I'm asking: I like the model, and I don't want to miss a good deal if it's re-badged as a RoyRV 2871QWERTY. (Made up name.) I want to see the entire market for this floorplan and weight. (I do realize the weights change a bit between brands and options.)

Looking for mid-2000s Rockwood or Flagstaff brochures. Aha, Archive.org does have them. I should have tried there first. Thanks for that!

So are there any other sister brands for these models? We know that Rockwood and Flagstaff have almost identical versions of the same, any others?
