Wildwood Trailer 27RKSS - Opinions
My wife and I own a used 2008 Shamrock 19 expandable trailer. We bought it earlier this year as our first try at camping. We love it! This summer we have camped at 7 or 8 locations and only wish we had more time to do it. We are going to do a full week in Florida for Christmas.
We started small and low cost to make sure we didn't get in too deep not knowing if we would actually enjoy this or not.
Now we are thinking that early next year we want to upgrade to a fully contained trailer. We want to have more space to move around and better control over the interior climate.
We've looked around a lot. We really like the Wildwood 27RKSS. I like the aluminum siding to reduce / eliminate delamination issues and the plywood tongue and groove flooring for strength and durability. The weight appears to be well within our limits. I drive a 2012 F150 4x4 Lariat with the Ecoboost engine. Tows up to 8,200 max and the trailer is about 7,700 with fully loaded cargo. Hitch weight is 720 pounds.
Assuming I am good with this trailer and tow vehicle combination... Anyone have any thoughts about this trailer? Any experience with it? The only other that we have put on our short list is the Premier Ultra Light 29RTPR which was a little bigger with two slide outs but weighs almost the same I guess because it is a light weight trailer.
My gut says the Wildwood will be more durable and will hold up better over the years. Is it an incorrect assumption on my part that a non light weight is probably a better choice than a light weight? I do see many light weights at the camp grounds but most are also new looking too so that makes me wonder.
Open to hear any thoughts, comments, experiences, etc.
