Rockwood 2205S or Flagstaff 22FBS

Newbie looking to buy either the Rockwood 2205S or Flagstaff 22FBS. Supposedly, they are the same with different color options.

Is there any other reason to buy one over the other?

Thanks

Rockwood and Flagstaff are twin brands, made in the same factory and on the same assembly line. Only differences are model numbers, outside graphics and interior decor.
There are WAY more Rockwood dealers than Flagstaff dealers, therefore more price competition on Rockwoods.
Get quotes from RVW and RV One, as they have been price leaders on Rockwoods for years. RV One also sells the Flagstaff models.

bikendan is correct. When at ForrestRiver plant was told they use same parts. Some dealers will tell you they are a upgrade and try and sell at higher price.

L was told by a dealer that the "Quality" in a Rockwood was higher than a Flagstaff....Hence the higher cost!!!!!!!!!

Yes Dealer said that. Like I said to sell at higher price. Same parts and same workers. They go down the same line. Saw it first hand.

I'm a Rockwood fan, even though they come off the same assembly line.
My first FR product, we where looking to buy a Flagstaff until the dealer said something incredible dumb, so we moved on. Per the dealer they where running a special sale on all Flagstaff's and they are the less expensive versions of the Rockwood's.
Went to another dealer and purchased a Rockwood version of the same model, special ordered it with an Equalizer hitch, for the same out the door price as the other dealer's advertised "special" price.
FYI, the dumb statement, longer term with lower payment would save us money in incurred interest with the same interest rate.
