RW 2306 - Availability?

I have two questions:

1. Why is it so difficult to find a RW 2306? I'm in the upstate of SC and I've been looking at RV Trader and several other sites for the past month, and I have yet to find this unit anywhere within two states of me. Is it because of where I live - they just aren't that popular? Are they not built in great quantities? Is it the time of year (winter season)?

2. I know I can order one, but I assume it's going to take a while for it to be built and delivered. Do you guys have any idea of how long I should expect that to take? Couple weeks? Couple months? I have no point of reference for this kind of thing.

Thanks in advance!

It looks like a perfectly fine TT to me, too, but not having slides may make it unpopular. We bought our current Sunseeker because it does not have slides, but our floor plan has been discontinued. For us, to gain a few feet of living area is not worth giving up storage space or cargo capacity. To each his or her own, but those of us who want to live without slides must look a bit farther afield.

You know, I've never thought of that, but it makes sense... I have definitely noticed that the 2104S is much more widely available - at least around here. But with a family of three (9 year old daughter), the 2306 is the floor plan that works for us. The 2104, even with the slide, can't offer the same sleeping arrangement.

If you didn't know, the Flagstaff line has a model 23lb that is exactly the same as the Rockwood 2306. Just some different fabrics and colors. We have a 2306 and love it. Good luck searching.

And let me tell you how valuable that extra bunk is when there is no one sleeping in it. LOTS of storage there.

I would agree that the lack of a slide probably keeps this floor plan from being stocked. Everyone thinks they need the slide.

I had the 2306 w/murphy bed for two seasons and loved it. That Murphy bed made the camper feel huge inside. However, the wife wanted to start bringing the dog along ($20/night in the kennel was killing us) and there was just no extra space for him. Perfect for our family of four, however.

If I had it to over agin, I probably would have opted for the 2504S instead.

53flattie, try sending a note to Brett Doberenz, Sales Manager at the Flagstaff/Rockwood division. He can tell you which dealers in your area have ordered the model you want, although he can't necessarily tell you whether they've sold a unit or still have it in stock.

You can reach Brett at bdoberenz@forestriverinc.com.
