From what I noticed when we were looking around, the Flagstaff would be the GMC of the two...

From what I have read here on this forum, they run down the same line when built.

If you want the best built unit, don't buy a Rockwood/Flagstaff lightweight. Everything is lightweight, the walls, floor, frame, axles, tires, EVERYTHING!

That statement is NOT fair. There are many people who have purchased Rockwood and Flagstaff ultralight models and are completely satisfied. If you're so unhappy with yours, I suggest you trade it in and buy something you feel is superior.

Good point.

No issues with the construction of the 2 Rockwoods we've had.

While I would be upset at someone calling Grey Wolf units effectively crap for being lightweight, in the same thought I can understand Don's point. Lightweight TT's are made to be light, so no solid wood cabinetry, nor hard surface countertops, or plush Serta 16" matresses. These things add weight. The extra light and lightweight TTs are purpose built, and you have to understand that going into them. Does this mean "don't buy them"? Of course not. Just don't expect them to be super luxurious.

I liked the look of the Salem Hemisphere's, but from what I saw at the RV convention this winter/spring, unless you are looking at the Aviator line, forest TT's are not as luxury on finish as the 5ers. The Cardinal, Columbus, Ceder Creek and Blue Ridge were beautiful units. This is because you are probably already expecting more weight with a 5er, so they don't worry quite as much with the options. They expect you to have a deisel or large gasser 3/4T+ truck and that you plan on having more weight.

The Rockwood and Flagstaff are fine units. You just have to understand their design and place in the market...
