Upgraded to 2014 Rockwood 8281WS

We pulled the trigger on a new FW. Out with the old, in with the new. Looking forward to being a FR owner.

Looks like a great unit-congrats and hope you get to use it soon.

I do want to ask on how your f150 handles the 1500 lbs of hitch weight. Do you have a HD payload?

I have pulled her about 200 miles. I need to upgrade tires from the Pirelli Scorpions to a good 10 ply and get a Air Lift suspension. I'm not sure on the HD payload. Ford told me that the FW tow weight for my truck was 9500 lbs. I'm looking for a smoking deal on a 3/4ton gasser.

Congrats on the new unit. I have a 2012 8281SS for two years and we love it. With two boys in there own room and bathroom it works out very well.

The only thing that is a pain is the three sewer outlets. I don't know if yours has that. I connected the two front ones and it made it much nicer. Other than that it is great unit...

Good luck....

I think mine has 2 black, 1 gray and a galley if I'm not mistaken.
