Rockwood Signature UltraLite 8315BSS

My husband and I currently have a popup, and are planning to move up to a travel trailer. We have looked at too many TT's to count, but keep coming back to the 8315BSS. I would love to hear from anyone who has or had that model and the pros/cons.

I have a 2010 Flagstaff Signature Ultralight and it is a really nice unit. As far as I know, Flagstaff and Rockwood are the same except for colors and branding. Mine is a Flagstaff 829RGSS and it is quite roomy for two. It's listed as "29" but it really measures out to 31ft, so I suspect the "315" might be something like 33-34ft. That is a lot of trailer, especially moving up from the PUP world. My last rig was 37ft and I'm happier with my new rig.

I will say though that except for that issue, the 8315BSS looks like a really nice floor plan. Nothing I appreciate more than a toilet area big enough to spread my elbows when the door is closed!

We are very happy with ours as it was an upgrade from a 25ft Mallard. I will say depending the amount off hot days in GA I would consider getting the 15K BTU A/C because the 13k unit doesn't cool enough for CA summers.

We had an '09 8315ss. Great floorplan. Lots of kitchen counter space. Large bathroom which covers the full width of the trailer. More than enough inside storage. The 8315ss (no bedroom slide) has limited outside storage with an outside pass through storage at the rear of the trailer and one small outside storage at the curb side front. Sliding bins in both. I don't believe the 8315bss has the pass through storage.
In the 8315ss the water filter and water heater bypass valves are hard to get to. you access them through the outside rear storage on the curb side. There is a panel to remove before you can get to them. It was a bit of a hassel. I'm not sure of the locations of the filter and bypass in the 8315bss.
We just happen to get one with delam and leak problems so we traded it in after owning it only 18 months. Other than that we liked the tt. The majority of RW Signature Lite owners seem to be satisfied with their tt's.

We have a 2009 8315BSS and absolutely love it. Lots of inside storage. If you order the atrium slide and free standing dinette you will lose some storage, but we found that was not a problem for us.

We have a 2011 Rockwood Signature Ultralight 314BSS and love it. Luxurious, roomy with great storage space - perfect for two adults and one big dog. It has become the gathering place for all our RV friends. Have friends buying one just like it they were so impressed.

Love ours!!! We also went with the dinette. Thought we would miss the extra sleeping spot but a air bed in the kitchen works great, also we had our daughter (21 yrs) sleep on a air bed in the bedroom. Plenty of room.
I can't wait to camp again!
Good Luck & Happy Camping!!

We just upgraded from an '06 Rockwood 8315SS to an '11 Flagstaff 831FKBSS. The Flagstaff is the sister to the Rockwood. (We liked the interior colors & graphics better on the Flagstaff, otherwise the Rockwood and Flagstaff are identical.) We loved the '06, but wanted the extra room of the bedroom slide.

Keep in mind, it IS a large camper. The "1/2 Ton towable" is a stretch.

We love our 8315 BSS. We traveled to the Yukon with ours last fall and really enjoyed it. The Alaska Highway was rather bumpy in spots but the trailer tracked really well. On the couple of rainy days, the large interior was really nice. I was concerned about the length before we purchased it but have found that it's easier to back up than our previous smaller trailer. You just need to make sure that the campsite you choose will handle the length.
