Is the Windjammer easier to pull, aerodynamic, better gas mileage, et.
Last thoughts on the 3008W: It just seems to be the best combination of great kitchen off to the side, great large and private bedroom and beautiful large living room. Are we right? Do you love your Windjammer?
We have 2012 3002W and it's been a great trailer. We got the u-shaped dinette for the same reasons you mentioned. Be aware that the seat against the outside wall is not quite deep enough for most adults. Your grandkids will probably fit fine. Besides the two large drawers under the seats, you also get another outside storage compartment. I would really miss that!
My previous trailer weighed 5600# (empty) and I pulled it with a 5.3L (gas) with a .373 rear end. I got 10MPG with this setup. My Windjammer weighs about 7300# empty, and I'm now towing with a 6.0L (gas) and a .410 rear end. We take the same amount of stuff. I expected to pay more for gas, but I still average right at 10MPG, so I'm very happy with the way it tows. I use an Equalizer hitch (12,000/1200 model).
The kitchen is fabulous in the 3008. The only things we did not like about the floor plan is that you can't look directly at the TV, and you must walk through the bath to get to the bedroom. I would definitely buy a Windjammer again, but I would get the new 3025W. It seems to have the best of everything, and we wouldn't have to give up the large bath we love.
Good luck hunting!
