My wife and I just purchased our first travel trailer, an '09 Rockwood 8296ss...feeling too old for tents now. I happened across this site while in search of info for newbies such as us. We are very excited to learn all the ins and outs and this looks like a great place to pick up some very valuable information and advice.
Welcome to the FRF. We are glad you found us and are glad to help out all we can. There is lots of information here. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have. Someone here will be able to answer them.
I am fairly new to this site also, and have been checking the Forest River website as different models are mentioned. The stats on the 8296SS are: 4284 lbs. axle weight, 703 lbs. hitch weight, and the unit dry weight is 5740 lbs. Am I missing something, or aren't the 1st 2 figures supposed to add up to the last 1??
