Hello!

We just bought a 2013 Flagstaff fifth wheel at the RV show at Great Adventure last weekend. Had a fifth wheel for a few years, and loved it, but sold it about 5 years ago. I'm really looking forward to getting this new one home so that I can look at it again and explore all of the cool new features it has that our old one didn't. We pick it up next Thursday, which seems a long way off.

I'm glad I stumbled across this forum, and look forward to reading and sharing.

Thanks Turbo

We bought the 8528 IKWS model - really like the the layout. I'll take some pics when we get it home. Our old one was 28' with one slide - this one is 32' with three slides - what a difference! We never felt cramped in the old one, but this one seems so spacious. I'm really excited about it. We've got a weekend planned in mid-October at a local campground with my children and grandchildren, and neices and their families, (some in campers, others in tents). It should be fun, and probably not a bad idea for our first outing to be close to home. Hopefully we'll get out in it a few times this year.

to the FR forums! Your upcoming campout sounds like a lot of fun! Great idea. Are you all staying in different campsites or did you opt for the group camping?

Ditto on the pictures suggestion.

That IKWS is one awesome camper!
If that model had been available two years ago, we would own one as well. It as close to perfect as anything I have seen in that size. And two superslides in a "28-foot" fifth? Unreal!

Happy Camping

Thank you for the warm welcome, everyone.

Bakken - it really is an awesome layout - really seems to make great use of the space. This camper is 31' 2", so it isn't that much bigger than our old one, but the slides and the layout really make the most of the space. The third slide is just a small one - a closet bumpout in the bedroom, but it does add a decent amount of wardrobe space. Bathroom is tiny, but has enough room to do what needs to be done. Brings up an interesting question though. We were told by several dealers that model number doesn't indicate length any more. Were we misinformed?

Terier, we've all got individual sites at a state park for our upcoming family outing, but in the same area. Looking forward to it.

Just five more days 'til we bring the camper home... (but who's counting?)
