Hot News

Spoke with RV Wholesalers this evening. They indicated that no more 7 1/2 ft. wide Rockwoods will be produced. All new orders will be 8 ft. wide trailers.

Also spoke to RV Direct Wholesalers with regards to Flagstaff trailers and they confirmed that the same change is happening with the Flagstaff line but did not an effective date.

RV Wholesalers indicated no changes to base prices.

Probably a wise idea, the extra space inside is quite noticable.

I thought they were 8 footers....huh.
My new Salem is 8.5 feet wide. I thought it was great to get a wider version...especially since it's just going to sit on a space most times...

Wider is better.

Just as a matter of passing along trivia, I seem to recall that the old standard width of 7.5 feet had to do with some States having laws prohibiting a wider trailer on their roads, Interstates excepted. I suspect that the few holdouts have now seen the error of their ways.

Hey, wait a minute. I have a 7.5 foot wide Flagstaff and love it. We are not big people so we don't mind. I towed my parents 8' wide max lite and I think that there is a difference at highway speed due to drag. For what it is worth, we love our "tiny" 7.5 foot wide camper.

I don't even know how wide my rig is, nor do I care. Pretty soon we're all gonna be hanging out asking "How wide is yours?"

The Surveyor line has been 8 feet wide for a number of years. One of the things that gave it it's own identity from other Forest River products.
