I think this is probably X4 or 5 for the Rockwood

We loved our Rockwood - great build, wonderful features and if I were getting another pull-behind would not hesitate to get a Rockwood!

We love our Micro Lite 25DS. Nice queen bed (needed extra pad) Slideout with couch for naps. Bathroom across the rear is ok but still a little tight. Appliance layout is good. Has two doors.

Now for mods I did cut out the wall and removed the bathroom door and hung a shower curtain across the opening. Works well for girth enhanced folks. Removed the one dinette seat and table and put in an easy chair.

Had a Puma. Nowhere near the quality of my Rockwood. Even the smallest details like how carefully caulk is applied is a night and day difference. Rockwood all the way!

Your Sunseeker that you want to tow with only has a 5000 towing capacity hitch with a 500# tongue weight so it would have to be small. Flagstaff/Rockwood in a TT have good quality but like others have said you would probably trading the Sunseeker and getting a bigger class C. If you are looking for a larger bathroom the 3051 Forester would serve the purpose well, check one out.

As a long time member, I would say that the Rockwood Windjammer/Flagstaff V-Lite line seems to have the fewest complaints and the most satisfied owners, of any of the FR TTs.

X8 Rockwood. From what I've seen higher quality trailers generally are heavier. I guess it makes sense.

When we shopped, I would agree with all of the Rockwood support here. They were very nice. However, for those that can't pay the price in weight, I found the Surveyor line to be the top end of "lightweight'ish" trailers.

In one year and 50-60 nights in ours, it has been a pleasure.

Not a Shasta 185 ... pure junk. No backer for blinds/curtains, window not centered so screws in sidewall showing, rear radius molding bowed out/fiberglass waves 1/4 - 1/2 inch filled with sealant will probably crack from stress, AC doesn't blow cold, debris under linoleum, bathroom door opens onto furnace - overall poor quality/workmanship. Pros - a very large bathroom. Had the dealer tech not done a very good job of installing a heated underbelly I would have walked away. Six weeks and I still can't bring it home. Shame, Shasta used to be a very nice unit but I understand the retro AirFlyte is even worse! The entire industry needs to tighten up quality control.

What we did was to go to a couple dealers, ask questions and play with the units we found acceptable to our needs. It is your opinion that counts most.
Our camper has been back to the dealer for a few things, all under warranty.
