My first Camper Flagstaff 27rlws

Hey everyone! I just picked up my 27RLWS with sapphire package a few days ago and I'm loving it so far. Hopefully we will be able to take it camping in the next few weekend! If anyone has any tips that might make my trip easier, feel free to help out. Also, any comments by owners of the 27rlws or 2703ws would be appreciated.

Love the floor plan

We bought the 2703WS about 6 months ago. Love the floor plan. Have not had any major issues to this point. Shower leaked at the pan and the steps unfold when traveling if we don't put a bungee cord around them. The a/c is marginal if the temps get above 100 and you are not in the shade of a tree, at least with the 13.5 in ours. Watch out for the cabinet doors when opening and closing the slides. I ripped off one of the top rear cabinet doors recently. Going to replace hinges on doors by slides with spring loaded ones to insure they don't pop open when traveling. Fireplace was great in winter. Overall happy with purchase. One other issue was the outside grill. The mounting bracket was too low and the grill support hit the plastic trim so it was not level. I cut down the bracket to solve the problem.

Nice camper and truck. My guess you have the 3.5 EB with over 1800 payload depending on the fuel tank size. I have a similar setup with the '16 F-150 towing a Hemisphere 282RK.

Congrats on the new Flagstaff. This thread will be of interest to you.

27RLWS

There are a lot of owners of the Flagstaff 27RLWS and its twin the Rockwood 2703WS on the forums so you'll find lots of great info by searching on those model numbers.

nice! I have a similar truck, my advice : WDH, and extended mirrors. mine have the blind spot detector so I just got some that attached to the original
I contacted a Ford rep who said extending electronic blind spot mirrors will be out next year and will fit 15-17.
