Rockwood Signature 8329SS Ultra Lite Travel Trailer

Hi -

I will be picking up my new Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite travel trailer next week. It is Model Number 8329SS. Looking to hear from any other fellow Rvr's who own this trailer or any of the other models of this trailer both good and bad experiences.

Thank you.

Last August we purchased the Windjammer 3029. It has a very similar floor plan to yours. We camped in it quite a bit before we winterized it and have had it out once this spring still winterized. We have had only minor issues like three of the LEDs out on the awning. We have thoroughly enjoyed this camper! The opposing slides in the living space make it so roomy.

Picked mine up in February. The only problem we had is the IRV radio/dvd system. Seems to be a lot of people with this problem. Sound cuts in and out unless you crank the volume. Love everything else after this TT. Tows like a dream.

I have a 2014 that I took delivery in June 2013, so I have a season and half on mine. We are set up seasonally, basically we live in it May - October, commuting to work. I pull it home in the fall, back to camp in the spring. I have had occasion to pull it back to the dealer twice, it does tow nicely. (2013 Chevy 2500 HD)


It is an ultralight, so everything is, light. Read that as prone to breaking. Careful with the window cranks, easy to overextend and break. Mine had the air mattress, it leaked.(warranty) The oven needed a tune as it would go out, dangerous.(warranty) The LED's on the awning died. Also the motors for the awning were recalled by Dometic. (warranty) The valve on the propane tank whistled. (out of my pocket to fix). The entire camper shakes when one is walking through it, you notice this if you are sitting still and your other half strolls through (light frame). I use the four jacks that came with the camper plus four additional ones mounted fore and aft of the wheels. Another issue is the walls are paper thin and sound travels through them. With the plastic roof, when it rains, you cannot hear yourself think when inside let alone hear the tv. My stereo/surround system works fine.


We love the floor plan. We love the décor and storage. I will never buy another ultrlalight. If I could find a brand/model built in the heavy duty style, I would trade in a heartbeat.


Buy the extended warranty for $150.00 upon delivery, you will need it. For each of my warranty problems, my dealer, barked up front the problems were not covered. Push them because they are covered. I believe the dealer does not get reimbursed enough for their trouble and will try to dodge the issue if they can. Again, push them to get it done.


That all said...we do love this camper. Best of luck and happy camping with yours. Let us know your thoughts when you get some miles on it.


Mark

We picked ours up in January 2014 and love it. We are now full timing in it after recently selling our house. Pretty darn comfortable for a TT. The Serta mattress isn't the best nor do I like the la z boy chairs but the rest works just great. We probably have 10 months living in it so far with 8000 miles between Phoenix & Chicago. In fact we are leaving for Chicago tmrw morning.
We did add shelves in the kitchen cabinets and bathroom closet that doubled the stacking area.
Hope you have as good a luck with yours that we did with ours.

My wife would like shelves in the same area's of ours. How about some pics and description detailing what materials you used, and your installation?

I'm not near the TT right now so no pics but the procedure was pretty simple. We went to Home Depot and bought a length of rUbber coated metal shelving. I measured the depth and width the cabinets allowed allowing for an open area in the front to reach up on top. I think the depth was 9". Then I marked off the width with a pen and used bolt cutters to cut to size.
I then bought some 3\4 th inch trim boards, cut them to the height she wanted and used wood glue to put them in the corner of the cabinets as supports for the shelves, and 2 more for the front legs along the side of the cabinet to support the front of the shelf. Placed the wire rack shelves with the front liP up so nothing would slide off during transit and that was it. Cheap, no holes drilled and works like a charm.
Hope this is not too much detail.

Thanks everyone for responding. All of your input both good and bad is much appreciated. It is nice to have a forum to come to like this with other people with things in common. We will be picking up our new travel trailer (Rockwood-Signature Ultra Lite 8329SS) next week. We have a 1999 Ford 250 Super Duty of which we use to tow our 22' 6500 lb. boat and have had no issues with towing. We are hearing from some people that they have experience swaying with the Ultra Lite on the Express Ways. We will be using a load distribution hitch and sway bars. Has anyone experienced any issues with swaying as well? Any input would be much appreciated!

Shouldn't be any sway if the WD hitch is set up correctly, none with ours. I just about forget we are towing it.
