Flagstaff Fifth Wheel Model 8528BHSS

I was just wondering if anyone else on here has this model 5er and if you do how well do you like it. Ours is a 2006 and we have enjoyed it since day one and still can't wait to go camping with it. We had a few minor problems but they were taken care of under warranty by the dealer. Below are a few photos of our rig and TV.

Hello, we have a 2003 8528 RESS. Same trailer different layout. Have been very happy with it. Only thing I would advise would be to be sure there is a good seal around the bottom trim. I washed my trailer and unknowly filled the underbelly/w water. Belly came loose crossing Kansas. We were lucky to be traveling with others and got stopped before much damage. Mine now has drain holes in it. We also have a good dealership, though I generally take care of small stuff. We pull with a 2002 GMC 2500 4x4 6.0

Have same model but 2004

We have a 2004 model. I bought it used Labor Day 2006. So far it has been great. We pull with a 2006 Chevy 2500 4x4 gasser. Had a 1500 and hated that combo.

Been trying to download various manuals as I only got a limited few.

Now to wait for Spring!
