The Rockwood 8329SS Thread

SO, I'd like to start a thread on questions and issues particular to the 8329SS.

To start, does anyone know the size (length) of the three slides? I am asking from a slide topper standpoint. Found a guy with a new slide topper and would like to know if it will fit any of my slides.

Thanks!

You can read a list of problems I posted on under the heading

8329SS first weekend, 1st disappointments

We've spent about 8 days in the TT before it was back at the dealer, but this was expected with a new purchase. We absolutely love it so far and it has been so much less stress than our boat. Other than the punch list items being fixed, it has been everything we wanted.

So far, the TT has been back at the dealer for about a 3 1/2 weeks. Supposedly they are taking care of the majority of the "punch list" items. There is at least one issue that FR is refusing to cover under warranty that has to do with a water seal, saying it is normal for them to be manufactured this way. It's not a big deal because I can fix it in about 2 minutes with a tube of clear silicon but the fact remains that I shouldn't have to seal an area that will allow water intrusion into the entertainment slide out and cause rot and or mold.

Keep in mind that not everybody loves slide toppers. They can be very noisy with even a moderate breeze and that bed slide topper will be right over your head when you're sleeping. Or trying to sleep. JMHO.

We mostly camp at the coast and haven't had any problems with noise. Slide toppers are the best. Will never be without them again. No more climbing up to get sticks and leaves off slides before closing or dumping water inside after closing in rain.

8329ss

Our 8329ss is a 2014 model that we picked up in Jan of that year. Our punchcard list took 2 hours at the dealership.
We ordered slide toppers on it and in 600+ nights of sleeping in it we have never heard a noise from the toppers. In fact it is so well insulated that on one very smelly night in Fort Morgan's City park we never smelled a thing inside the TT.
Love our trailer.
