New owners of Rockwood

Picked up our new 2013 Rockwood 2909SS this past Friday. It was white knuckle driving with all the wind, so I was glad to get it home. I can't wait for the weather to come around so we can take it out.

Congrats on the new Rockwood and welcome to the forum!

You should double-check the hitch set-up as it will help control sway...what hitch is it. Some of the sway you experienced could be that you're towing a long camper with a short wheelbase SUV...you have to have a good WD hitch with integrated sway control and it has to be set-up properly.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your 2013 Rockwood 2909SS. Very nice looking rig! Those 2 awnings are going to give you lots of shade.

Congrats on TT...nice double awning, enjoy your camping adventures!

Looking @ your tow vehicle, I can imagine you did have some white knuckle driving with that camper

Nice. Wife and I like that floor plan as well. What are you towing with? Can't really tell from the pics. Oh, and lots of interior pics too please!

We are towing it with a 2011 Durango. Like I said, I drove through wind advisories the whole way home. When I wasn't "bucking" the wind it towed great. I do have an Equilizer WD Hitch that seems to help.

Glad to hear it towed well. I am in no way the weight police, but I did note that your trailers GVWR is over the Durango's tow rating. Please be careful out there. My wife and I really like that floor plan as well, though we are likely going with a smaller and lighter trailer. We are also wanting to tow with a V8 Durango (not yet purchased), and are leaning towards the Roo 25RS which has a GVWR of 6500 lbs, though we plan to load lightly for trips here in Colorado, as mountains are an ever present issue, though not sure where you are in Utah, you may not have any mountain passes to be concerned with. Congrats and please post plenty of photos and updates!
