Rockwood ultralite quality ?

We are considering the purchase of a new travel trailer. The rockwood 2604 ws appeals to us more than any other trailer we looked at. We would like to get some feedback from owners of Rockwood ultralights. We want to hear about any construction issues such as leaks, roof and floor problems, slide out and frame issues and how they were resolved.
We currently own a 2010 Evergreen Everlight that was purchased new. It has been a trouble free trailer and would purchase another if they made one with a floorplan and specs. similar to the 2604 ws. The fact that there is no wood in the construction in the Everlight was a major selling point.
Thanks for the comments

We have a 2013 Rockwood Signature Ultralite 8319SS and love it. Mechanically and structurally it is well built. The only complaints we had were the placement of the ceiling light near the pantry did not light up the pantry at all and the pilot light for the oven would not stay lit when using the oven. I fixed both issues by putting some puck style LED lights in the pantry and adjusting the pilot light. Other than those minor problems we have no complaints. (I'm knocking on wood now )

We have taken it long distance on multiple trips (from 800 to 1200 miles). It tows extremely well.

We started with a Rockwood 2502...then a Rockwood 2607(huge bathroom)...now we have a 2016 Rockwood windjammer 3008w and have had no issues with any of them. They are built very well.

We have a 2014 8319ss. All issues have been minor and easily fixable. The only issue we have right now is that some of the LEDS on the awning strip have burned out, but that is being replaced under warranty. We love the floor plan of this unit and all of its conveniences, such as automatic stabilizer jacks, awning, etc. Also, we like that this trailer has two grey tanks, one for the bathroom and one for the kitchen sink. It pulls great and overall the trailer seems to have been built really well.

We have a '15 8329SS it has had some issues most I fixed myself. The one big issue I have right now is a screw on the inside is trying to get out. Straight thru the wall to the outside and it's behind the interior panel😡. But we really like it. We like to be outdoors but finding ourselves inside way to much. We just did a short weekend trip we didn't set a darn thing up outside not even the awning. Oh it was a sad sight but, we also had bad storms coming in for most of the weekend.

We are currently on a 3k mile trip from dallas tx to Yellowstone. We have a 14 8327SS and have had no problems with it. Build has been great. Only issue I had was the radio and a bent stabilizer jack. Unit pulls great and is a lot of fun. I like it.

We have the 2011 version of this same TT (no wardrobe slide).....we absolutely love the F/P & dual entry doors......maybe just dumb/luck, but no neg. issues so far.....yes, we would buy another in a "Heartbeat".....

For what we paid for it, new, back in 2008 we think we've gotten a pretty good deal. For this price range I would say the campers are of good quality.

I'm beginning to see the issues older campers have (equipment, not people) but still over all I'm happy with it.

We have a 2015 8327SS that we took delivery of April 2014. We've camped over 60 nights in it, most of the time with a minimum of 6 people and sometimes as many as 11. I have to say it's been a flawless rig. I would DEFINITELY purchase a Rockwood ultra light again.

We took delivery of our 2604ws in May. We have been on 2 short trips & love it so far. We did get the counter extension which is quite heavy. I doubt we will ever use it. Most of our food prep is outside. Love the big rear window & we went with the table & chairs. We opted for the small TV since we don't watch much TV when camping. The picture quality is so great though, we wish we'd got the bigger option. We were excited about the awning lights, but they are really bright. If there is an option for coloured lights, I would take it. We swapped out the 30# propane tanks for 20# for weight & ease of handling. The bed is comfortable but we did add a foam topper & may get one for the pull out couch as well. Super camper for a couple & 2 large dogs.
