Congratulations and welcome to the V-nose family! I bet once you have it and give it that break in trip, you'll love it!

I know that feeling. We must have found "the one" 6 or 7 times before settling on our Windjammer. Saw a comment by another poster on the forum today referring to it as something like "one in a series of 'aha, that is the one' epiphanies". Made me laugh. It is crazy to think how different our 3008W is from the Roo 233ss we started out loving, or the various bunkhouses with outdoor kitchens (such as the Signature Ultra Lite 8312) which were the object of our unadulterated affection before we made our final choice. All I can say is ENJOY THE PROCESS, don't rush, and trust your gut.

Well, at least the Congrats are still in order! Luckily Momma is the one who fell in love with our Windjammer first. What are you getting?

The rear slide interior support needs to be beefed up and supports added under the bed on the interior (and probably the exterior).
This was a concern also but I thought I read somewhere they are rated for a 1000 lbs? do they sag with weight..

The interior support is only connected to one side of the trailer so the other side sags and bounces when driving down the road. The support is connected with sheet metal screws to the bed into a aluminum tubular support. The screws (about a total of 6)sheared in half and in some places made the penetration into the aluminum into a vertical inch long opening. The bouncing effect cracked the exterior rear siding.

The bed needs more interior support.
