Any feedback or experience with the wildcat travel trailer?

Does anyone have experiences good or bad with the wildcat travel trailer? I am leaning towards purchase but would love to hear people's experience with them. Thank you!

I can't speak as to the travel trailer line of Wildcat, but we love our 5th wheel. I would expect that the build, performance and reliability would be the same.

As an added feature the support from Wildcat with some issues after the warranty had expired has been outstanding.

We had a Wildcat 29RK. Great trailer. We used it a lot and never had a problem. The only thing we disliked was the lack of an AC unit in the bedroom. We live in Texas, and it gets hot here. However, the AC did great except for the really hot days. We did look at Wildcats, but ended up with a different brand.

My brother in law's is a wildcat (ours is a flagstaff). Can't speak for him directly, but I also can't remember him ever complaining about anything on his or having to get anything fixed.

I have a 2008 WC TT. It's heavy but it has a lot of storage, it has a super slide so it is room, and everything is well laid out. I like the rear living area trailers with the front bedroom. Only one AC but it works pretty well. Overall I'm happy with the purchase.

My wife's Uncle has a Wildcat 5er and it is a really nice trailer. I would consider buying 1 myself.

We have owned 2 Wildcat MAXX trailers. We bought the first one, a 2014 24RG and traded it for a 2016 28RKX because we wanted 2 chairs. The MAXX is built in Oregon which is a totally different facility from where the Wildcat's are produced. The MAXX is only sold in the West and no further East than the Idaho border. We live in Iowa, bought our MAXX in Washington St, and choose it because of it's cold weather inclosed belly, 2" thick exterior walls, as well as just simply a lot of bang for the buck. We have been VERY pleased with both our MAXX units and depending on where you live, you'd be wise to check them out before buying any other TT.

We have a 2011 Wildcat TT 29bhs (extralite). Good and bad mixture. Great floor plan. It also has 2 inch walls, enclosed underbelly for a more weather tight feeling on dark and stormy nights. The interior height might be issue to others. Heavy weight with mislabeled axle and cargo capacity labels that requires larger tongue weight was bad idea. I've noticed other Wildcat 5er and 30bh same vintage with much less capacity that I would only expect in anything other than entry level unit. We had alternate choice tt and I picked the wrong one. Shop carefully be certain all mandated recalls are completed regardless of brand.

We have had our 323 5th wheel since April, used it a lot, and LOVE IT! Highly recommend the 2nd air conditioner in bedroom. Found we needed it several times in the hot Michigan summer we had this year. Well worth the extra money.
