Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8324BS
Stopped by the dealer yesterday just to see what they had in stock. We've been looking to replace our 8312 with something that has a bigger MBR. They supposedly had an 8328 (reasonably new floor plan) but sold it almost as soon as it hit the lot. I knew they had a couple of Windjammer 3006WKs on the lot and just had the urge to go by and walk through a couple. The 3006WK would work for us, but...
When we got there, we found out they've come out with an even newer floor plan--the 8324. Owner claimed only 5 have come out of the factory so far. It's so new, the floorplan is not even on Forest River's website yet. Outside kitchen--check (minus the microwave). Bigger MBR--check (in the rear of the trailer). If they had gotten it with the automatic levelers and maple wood cabinets, we'd probably have signed on the dotted line while there. It has a 55-inch TV up front in the entertainment center that disappears into the cabinet below in case you have a great view out the new windshield-style front window. It has something I've never seen, and that is an L-shaped sofa with a single HAB). There is another HAB sofa on the door side. The down side for us is that the kitchen doesn't have a lot of head room, and we're both tall (the kitchen is actually in a slide on the off-door side. The dinette table and chairs are on the door side in a slide. Just thought I'd report on what we saw in case anybody is looking forward to the 2017.5 Rockwood travel trailers.
What we have now will sleep up to 10 (really, 8 comfortably), and this model would only sleep 5, but I'm very tempted. Just disappointed that the auto levelers weren't included, and I'm not a big fan of the Driftwood cabinetry.
Oh, the exterior is called champagne (much lighter than the taupe they had been using, but not bright white).
Dealer still hasn't gotten any 2017 brochures, which I didn't think they had because I had e-mailed the Forest River people, and they had said the hard copies wouldn't be available until some time in October.
