hello everyone, my wife and I joined Forest River forums a few weeks ago and have enjoyed reading everyones comments. So we would just like to say hello to everyone officially. We have owned two trailers, an 18 ft. then a 21 ft. and now we will be stepping up to a new 26ft. We are now been doing our homework for months and have it narrowed down to three trailers. Who thought it would be so hard to choose. Has anyone have a rockwood 2604 model. Would love any feed back. Thanks everyone and we will talk soon.

to the forum !!!

Nice introduction.

Just beware that "26" models usually are somewhere around 29' overall length.

Welcome to the forum !

mtnguy is so right about lenths. My first trailer was a 30QBSS, with an actual lentgh of 35'8", which was BIG with my standards . My current SV-291 is 32'+

Of course it goes without saying that the bigger the better, at least for me

What are you going to be towing it with ?

We purchased a Rockwood 2604 in January and have been very happy with it. We particularly like the rear seating area.

Not sure about having to go through the washroom to enter the bedroom. Would have preferred it to be a hallway with washroom on one side. How do you find it.
Have seen on forums that owners have had problems with the slideout catching on the cupboards at the entertainment unit. Have you had those cupboards opening during travelling?

We're finding that overall length for the 26' models is around 29' to 30'

I have a 2006 F150 with the 5.4L and 3.73 gears, and it does a great job. I don't know what ETR means, but if you have an Super Cab or Crew Cab, the wheelbase is 145", which is good if you are pulling a 29' trailer.

The heavy duty tow package is a good thing if you have that, also.

A typing error. We have a XTR with full factory towing package.

My DW & I own a 2011 2604. Picked it up in April & had it at a seasonal site since. No problems at all. We really love the floorplan.
We like the fact that the bathroom has 2 doors-
total privacy when we have my daughter & grandkids.
