Rockwood 2909WS

Hi- We are looking to buy our first travel trailer and are really interested in the Rockwood 2909 WS. Does anyone have any reviews or experiences with this trailer. Has anyone had any problems with this trailer they are wiling to share? What do you like or donít like about the trailer? Thanks

Hello,
We bought ours late September last year and already put 7K miles on it - 38 nights camped on it, including two outings that were two weeks in length each - and we love it.
We put a deposit on it when the dealer was still waiting to receive it, the dealer received it on a Wednesday and we took possession on the following Saturday so not too much time for them to fix things and yet, everything works fine except for water tank breather was not letting the air get out when we were adding water to it so we could only fill it up to 1/3 of capacity. Dealer is fixing under warranty.
Everything else works perfectly.

What we like/love:
1 - Because of the wardrobe slide, the master bedroom is open, so it feels big and not crampy.
2 - That front window is beautiful(for us) from the outside and from the inside it's pretty cool to open it in the morning and check the weather when you wake up without the need to get out of the bed...
3 - The 43in TV is really big but is so light that you can take it outside to watch the game - We have done that and it's great.
4 - The Kitchen counter top extension is perfect, out when you need it, in when you don't .
5 - The bathroom (including the shower) is the biggest I have found in any RV below 9000GVWR - Just love that.
6 - There is plenty of storage and space for the kids in their room, we have 3 boys(two teenagers) and everybody have their drawer plus some space in the wardrobe and their own space/bed.
7 - The external kitchen is perfect in layout. You have the range at your left, the grill at your right and the counter top in the middle with the sink in the left and the fridge in the right, it is just perfect functional layout.
8 - The two awnings when open provide a huge covered area, everything can be out of the sun at the same time - you can have a party there....
9 - All the water connections are at the same location in the back, including the winterization and black tank flush.
10 - The pass through storage is really, really big.

What we don't like so much/ think could be improved:
1 - Because it is a high ceiling, the Storage over the kitchen countertop and the microwave are too tall for my wife (She is 5' tall). She can still use the microwave but cant see how things are when the plate is inside the microwave.
2 - For the size, I really think that the water tank should be 60 gallons and not 43 gallons...
3 - Having 3 slides on the drivers side and none on the other side leads for the need to add a 1in leveler in the left side every time you set up camp, even when you are in flat ground, for the left suspension will drop 1in when the slides are out.

That being said, the things we like vastly outweight those 3.
I can't find a RV below 9000GVWR that would offer what this floor plan offers - it is really a well thought out layout.
