Newbie here from Missouri

Hi, just traded our Trail Bay 23 for a Rockwood 8296ss ultra lite. Will be in 7 wks. Have been looking for a larger kitchen and bathroom. Any opinions or suggestions about this model that we just ordered.

Welcome to the FRF.

We have a Flagstaff, which is the twin to Rockwoods, but not your model. We have gotten great service from ours.

Welcome to the forum. I have the exact same model as you and the major problem i had was with the Carlisle tires on it they were so bad and out of round that i got them to exchange them and pay to mount the new ones.
Everything else has been awesome, we just love the roomy kitchen and the large bathroom and shower that this model has. The bed has a really firm mattress on it and we bought a memory foam pad from walmart and that help that. Alot of people have had trouble with the stereo system in theirs but our has work good so far. Oh and be careful with air mattress in hide a bed our leaked after last camping trip and am trying to convince dealer to replace it also . All in all you will love this camper. Tom (chevy02)

Most Rockwood owners I've talked to are pretty satisfied with their units. More important though is how your dealer takes care of you AFTER the sale.
