Trailer Aid (Wildwood 26TBSS)

Has anyone used a Trailer Aid on a Wildwood 26TBSS? I have read a lot of reviews that say it won't lift the other tire high enough. It seems like most of those reviews are on the flex suspensions and not standard. I found a good deal on the "Plus" version which gives an extra inch of height. Is it going to work?

Finally got to try the Trailer Aid Plus. I used it to raise all four wheels to check my brakes. One wheel was on a slight slope and required an additional 2x under the trailer aid but still was easy to use and worked really well.

I have one that worked great on my old camper, I have not tried it on my new camper yet I was told that it will not work, but I am going try it before I need it and it will not work. I also bought the trailer aid plus when I bought mine because it gives you an extra inch of lift. I have a different kind of suspension on my new 5er I believe it is a trail air, so we will see. I will let you know after I try it maybe later this week.

We bought a 2014 wildwood 26TBSS in April and we have camped in it about 14 nights so far. We have experienced issues every time we camp, is this normal? We previously had 1998 model travel trailers and never had any issues, we thought a brand new trailer would not have issues. We like the trailer but we are concerned that it will always have problems. Does anyone have this model and if so what has been your experience? Is it a good trailer?

The kitchen sink leaks, TV antenna does not work, there appears to be nail heads popping up under the vinyl floor and the floor in the entry way started squeaking when you step on it, the dinette table leans inward you can stand it up straight but if you lay your arm on it it leans right back over, one tire already has a bald spot, etc. We did take it to the dealer and they have been great, they are taking care of the issues however it is concerning to us.

Hey Slimbo
I have experienced similar problems. My floor squeaks in front of the heater return vent in front of the kitchen sink. I figure the floor is hollow to allow for duct for the heater.

I also have the nail pops in the vinyl. I returned to the dealer for this. They say it may be sawdust under the vinyl. They would have to only cut out the affected area repair and then patch in the vinyl. I am not interested in this solution. I know I will never be happy with their hurry up patch job. Some things are better off not being opened up as they never are as good as the factory install. If it continues to get worse I will address it with Forrest River probably not thru the dealer to get a 2nd opinion.

I notice the nail pops. My wife hasn't seemed to notice. I have made her aware of it. They are not terribly bad as of yet. Not worth their cheap *** patch job.
I also asked the dealer about installing a roof air vent over the queen bed. They said " we will have to do some engineering and cut a hole in the roof to install. $500. I'm afraid not, $500 for a $30 vent sounds like total bs to me. I'll do it myself if I absolutely have to have it. Right now I just crack open a window.
Let me know what you have done to your floor please.
Huck
