Hello, my wife and I ordered the Windjammer 3008 w last August. We absolutely love it!! No major problems to report as of now, do have a whistling noise when traveling but I believe thats from the underside of the gutter needing sealed..

What is everyone here towing their windjammers with. We have a 2010 F150 and are considering a 3065 windjammer. How does a 1/2 ton pull the windjammers, assuming some of you out there are doing so.

I tow mine with a 2010 Ram 1500, Hemi, 3.92 gear. Towed it 450 miles this past Memorial Day weekend and it handled it just fine. Had a bit of a breeze fighting me on the way up and it felt fine. I averaged 9.1 mpg @ 63 mph for the trip.
I sometimes wish I had a 3/4 ton diesel because my DW and I are going fulltime this year and will be heading west, which means mountains.

We have 2010 F-150 5.4-V8 and pull the 3065 up and down the east coast with no problems ! We cruse around 60-62 because its a long trailer and its safer to keep it around 55mph! Enjoy ,we love ours !!

We got our 3008W three weeks ago and have had it out twice already. Towing with a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3L and an Equalizer 4-point hitch. No problems so far and love the trailer. Kitchen in the nose offers a lot of living space and the atrium windows are unbelievable. When truck is due for replacement we will go slightly larger but that won't be anytime soon. Can't wait for the next trip!

We got our new 2012 2609w last month and this weekend will be our third time out. We love it!
My TV is a 2010 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.7 hemi and 3.55 rear end and it tows great, especially with the equalizer WDH.

We've been official Windjammer 3008 owners for about 24 hours, lol. Just brought it home yesterday. TV is a 2008 F250 with V10 and 4.10 rear. Towed it home 2 1/2 hours with no issues, but no experience camping yet. Will be heading out this weekend.

We have a 2010 3065 and just towed it from Pennsylvania to Colorado & back last week with our 2001 GMC Yukon XL 1500, 5.3 liter gas, 4.3 rear end. Our yukon XL has 187,000 miles on it and this trailer tows like a dream...no problem going 65/75 mph on those flat roads heading west...but the truck will drop down into 2nd gear at 4500 rpm and 55 mph on a good hill just like it did with our old Citation trailer that was 500 lbs heavier.
