Two things come to mind - use a good wdh. Shes a nose heavy beast with a tongue weight pushing 900-1000 lbs. Having said that, she towes beautifully. We also replaced/improved the screws securing the sliding door straps. We had one pull out and you dont want the door moving in transit.

Enjoy your 26 RBWS - its an amazing trailer!

We have the Rockwood version. We did replace the sofa with theater seats. If you don't need the sleeper sofa you may want to swap it before you pick it up. The sofa is not comfortable to watch tv for any length of time. As a bed it is pretty good.

We are taking ours on her first trip this coming weekend to Up the Creek Campground in Pigeon Forge. She is nose heavy as stated but tows great.

Msgtret 03-19-2019 07:35 PM

It’s located just forward of the battery box on the left side. Big red handle...

We took out the new camper this weekend for the first time and we had a great time.We had a 21ft before upgraded to a 26 ft rbws so much more room cant wait to go back out in May

We really enjoyed our first trip. About 570 miles one way and had zero problems. The fun part was heading home, I-75 was shut down going north at Caryville. Had to take the old 25W to Jellico. Not the easiest road to tow a camper on.

We got our 2019 Flagstaff RBWS almost a year ago. We really like it and I have made a ton of improvement/changes. Turned out our dealer knew squat about the Equalizer hitches and set ours up wrong. We took it back to them and they still screwed it up. Finally took it to a place here in Marietta and they did it right. There is so much tension on the bars that we added Air Lifts to make that easier. We found out that when traveling, 15 psi is perfect. Don't take anybody's word for it. Go to the scales. Get your truck weight loaded with people and stuff and a full tank of gas without the trailer. Then reweigh with your loaded trailer. Visually the trailer should be setting level. If it is nose down the trailer front axle will be heavy and the rear light. Oh yea, at ~500 miles we got rid of the China Bombs and as a added advantage could tell an improvement in towing.

The GVWR for my truck is 7050. The GVWR for the trailer is 7864. The max tow capacity of the truck is 11800.

Unless you are towing with a 2017 Ford F-150 Supercab, 145" wheelbase, 3.5L EcoBoost, 3.55 Rear Axle, 4WD, 10 speed trans, HD tow package, etc., etc..... These numbers are useless to you.

I got to know the CAT Scale real good to get mine fine tuned.
