Smile Hi from Louisiana and looking for some feedback

Hi,
I am moving this post from the introduction forum as suggested.

"Hi everyone,
I have been following this forum for awhile and really enjoy it. Lots of good information here. We are just getting back into camping after about 15 years. I previously had a Coleman Williamsburg popup, great camper and really no issues. Our best trip was for about 6 weeks going up to Quebec/Toronto and back down the east coast. Lots to see in the northeast. I am presently looking at a 2009 Flagstaff 27SC (highwall popup) and wondering if anyone has any opinions/feedback on this particular model. Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks, "

Welcome to the forum. I considered that floor plan in the rockwood version (rockwood and flagstaffs are twins). We liked it but ended up going with the hw277 with the outside kitchen. We have no big issues with our rockwood and have really loved it.
Do not know what you are towing with, but these high walls are heavy for a popup (mine is 3800 lbs gvwr). What in particular do you want to know?

Welcome and I think you'll love that trailer. It's a mansion!

Thanks for the reply. I have a 1999 Ford F150 4.6 V8, good condition. I was looking for some feedback on what other owners like/dislike about this unit and if there were any inherent problems with it.

Nice that you have a truck. Since I did not choose that model can not give a lot of input to that but as to having a highwall, we love it and I find we have plenty of storage for us. Cannot see over it though when towing or backing into the site like you might for a regular pup. And we have to use a stick to turn off the lights on the ceiling, us gals are just too short:-D (but we manage). Have to lower the roof to take down the awning if a storm comes up. We choose our floor plan over the one you are looking at based on the outside kitchen and the easy fridge access when closed up. We also preferred the U shaped dinette. Just things to consider for your camping style. I think we would have been happy with your model as well. Lots of room inside with the pull out dinette area. We have had no issues other than stupid newbee mistakes I made with it but live and learn.

I have a 2009 Flagstaff 25 SC and love it. The only issue I have had with mine is the door does not always install well and sit flush at the top, especially when the awning is in use. It almost seems that some hardware is missing at the top. A quick search on the internet will confirm this issue with other owners, some have installed mods to add hardware to secure the door at the top. It is never enough to prevent the door from closing. otherwise this has been a great unit that has never needed any repair beyond the regular maintenance. Good luck!
