That is why we are getting away from the Rockwood. It has a GVWR of ~~9,300#, and they claim it is 1/2 tom towable. We put over 25,000 miles on it in two years. It needed both axles replaced twice, a refrigerator repair, and a new roof. All in two years. Perhaps an ultra lite is not designed to be used the way we do. Hopefully a unit with a GVWR of 13,830# will serve us better.

I have had a Crusader 295RST for five months that I bought new and I would recommend the Wildcat.
I don't know the Wildcat but I do know that I have several issues with my 295 RST and Roger Stickel and Primetime will use any excuse to avoid their warranty responsibilities on well known issues and continue to send these new campers out hoping that no one will notice the faults before the warranty runs out.

I have a new 2015 295rsx and since we picked it up a little late,we camped in it once, spent 2 months at the dealer to have things fixed and mostly waiting for parts. I did buy the extended warranty. We do like the lay out but as I'm finding out from our previous Kodiak 276 BHSL TT and this puppy you need a lot of patience and a decent dealer that will fix your problems. From talking to folks most people have issues at one time or another,the way they put things together at the factory can make you want to puke. I've been in the service industry for 37 years and if I performed the way the factory techs do i would of lasted 2 weeks. Good luck on your purchase.

I just ordered the 2016 Wildcat 295RSX after comparing it to Open Range 319 and Reflection 303. Crusader was a close 4th. It was the 16" wheels, very large cargo bay, larger refer, pantry, bigger rear couch and nice pin weight that sold me. I ended up with a local dealer (United RV in Ft. Worth whom I've had good experiences with). The dealer's offer beat all other offers I found nationwide (and I spent a few months negotiating from Minnesota to Indiana to Ohio). As for quality issues, they all have them but I'm confident in my dealer. I expect delivery in March.
