Wildwood compared to Rockwood

Fairly new to Forum, but enjoy the insights.
We own a 2017 Rockwood Mini Lite, 25ft. Very pleased overall.
How would this compare to a comparable size and equipped Wildwood? I know both are Forest River, but in my limited experience, I see differences. Weight and price, being two of them.
Thanks for info from you more expert campers!!

Huge differences.
Wildwood is stick and tin construction construction, while the Rockwood is aluminum frame and fiberglass sided. Therefore the Wildwood will be heavier in comparison.
The Rockwood will have better finishes and features. Many of those Rockwood features will not be available on the Wildwood or will be optional.
You need to see a Wildwood for yourself.
I owned a Rockwood and have been in Wildwoods and the higher price is well worth it. IMHO, the Rockwood/Flagstaff is one of the best trailer lines, for the price.

I have a Wildwood Heritage Glen that has an aluminum frame and a fiberglass outer, so sometimes the differences aren't so glaring. The differences maybe in types of materials or different bells and whistles.

You are correct, Wildwood now makes the higher level HG line, which would be a better line to compare to the Rockwood/Flagstaff lines.
Forgot about the newer HG line.
It would help if the OP clarified what models they are looking at.

Wildwood vs Rockwood

I have a 2014 32' Wildwood. We love the layout. Have had zero problems with the living portion of the trailer. Have about 10,000 miles on it and the only problems have been (1) the original tires were crap, (2) the axles were out of alignment, (3) the difference between the dry weight and max allowed weight doesn't lend itself to carrying a full tank of water as well as clothes and food for a full week of travel. I just, this week, put on a new set of Goodyear Endurance tires, and hope that will be the end of tire blowouts!

Slightly different but we have a Salem 210RBXL and the Wildwood 210RBXL is identical except for interior color (walls and fabrics).

Yep, Wildwood and Salem are twin brands, just like Rockwood and Flagstaff.
