Windjammer 3008W

We just put in an order for a Diamond packaged version V-Nose. Has anyone got one with the upgraded 15,000 BTU A/C unit? Or comments on how the regular 13,500 unit performs on this long a trailer,

I am interested in a Husky CenterLine hitch if anyone has comments.


Andy

Andy,
Congratulations on your new trailer. We have one on order.

Our current trailer, a Rockwood 2604, has the 13,500 BTU a/c, and it has worked fine on that trailer, but we ordered the 15,000 BTU on the new one. It is just enough bigger that I thought it was a smart option, and for the price difference - something like $180 MSRP to up-grade - I thought it was worth the extra money.

Again, congratulations on the new trailer, and happy camping.

Mike

Congrats and welcome to the V-nose family. We have a 2012 3008W (two seasons in it so far) and you did the right thing getting the larger A/C unit. In really hot weather it still struggles to get air back to the bedroom but we use a fan to blow air toward the back of the trailer and we have a small fan on the lower portion of the wardrobe (the three drawer section) and it works just fine.

Enjoy your Windjammer!

You did right with the 15K AC.

I went the larger AC unit on my 3008w and also had my windows tinted. I was concidering the diamond package because it looks great along with the extras but decided to stay with the white color to keep it cooler. We have really enjoyed this trailer so far. Congrats

We took delivery of our 3008w in November. Got the Diamond Package. Haven't had it out yet (snow is still melting around here) but, we also got the 15,000btu AC. I think it is a smart move. We store it in our barn, specially built for the trailer we had before, so can't open the slide outs inside the barn. Only problem we have had so far is a tire was loosing air. Turned out to be the valve stem was not tightened all the way. If you have had yours out, my only question is how does it do with all that slide out weight on one side of the trailer? Is there any problem with stability? Do we need to put up any supports to keep it from blowing over in a fairly strong wind?

Thanks,
ProfChuck

As long as you but the 4 stabilizer jacks down, we have never had an issue in the wind. We have been fortunate so far and have never camped in real high winds. When we go to level the trailer on the site, we try to have the slide side a little bit higher so when you run the slides out it will pull that side down slightly and back into level status.

Thanks so much. I'll try the leveling thing. We camp in the Mackinaw City area and the wind coming off the lake can be pretty stiff, especially during storms. We are really looking forward to camping in the new rig.
