What about this?

This comment makes sense to me and is the main reason I have not yet pulled the trigger to use Eternabond on my roof. I figure that about the time I put the Eternabond on, I'll have a fan cover,...

probably doesn't exist...

There were none in 2012 either. Only generic "travel trailer" manuals which are conceptual descriptions of systems, etc., to familiarize the uninitiated in rv systems and generalities, not anything...

Any sense of the comfort level for adult visitors?

I'm thinking we may need to replace the sleeper in our Windjammer. The (air mattress) in ours herniated dramatically this past summer and we're faced with figuring out what to do for a replacement. I...

Nothing common about it...

Which I can tell by the looks I get when towing my big 35 gallon model to the dump station on my truck's hitch (at 5 mph) mid-week during a 7-10 day stay. I feel a lot of things during those drives,...

I agree with Grumpy.

Grumpy is correct. The seals need to be treated (conditioned). One product I have used which keeps the seals soft and supple is seen here:

All the updated sales brochures and websites in the world could not possibly replace the actual "how to" and "what is this" value of the knowledgeable fellow owners here on FRF.

I'm not going to argue with your wife. While she's right, that's not a pantry, maybe she just needs to see it, too. Good luck!

Not so fast...

KingFisher, while I agree I can't find this (apparently new in 2018) model anywhere else, it is intriguing. It may not be lacking the pantry space you need, notwithstanding that there appears to be...

Assuming that is a TT model, we level L to R, then unhitch, level front to back, and then run the slides out (and only after running out the slides do we put down the stabilizers). Having said that,...

Definitely will follow your lead to shore up our step rivets going forward. I hear you on the "diving board action"...I've definitely learned to avoid the bottom step on the Windjammer both when...

I appreciate the effort to provide those product references and some clear guidance. I will probably give this a try. Obviously, you must have done all of yours on both sets of steps? In my...

Thanks, OC...

In seeing your reply, I realized I should have thought to ask you a long time ago. My familiarity with materials and specifications is certainly nothing to write home about. I'll keep that in mind...

Thanks Dano1955

Thanks, Dano1955...I have not heard that name, so I searched it. Turns out that the first product I ever used in making the repair while at a campground was a Chicago bolt. I went to a nearby...

The running lights not working could be a number of things. One simple fix might be the connection between the tow vehicle and the pigtail to the trailer. Wiggle it around a little, plug and unplug...

Hey, youroo...

After I sheared one of the rivets on the OEM steps on our Windjammer, I started buying various types of bolts to make the repair. Everything I have tried eventually bends or shears. The latest combo...

How about a pic?

While we wait to hear the results after you replace the bunk end seal, can you post a photo of the J channel "gutter" you added? Thanks, and good luck.

Happy with ours...

We have had a great experience with our 2013 Rockwood Windjammer (3008W), which is now in its 6th season of use. It is our first travel trailer and we are very happy with it. We had one factory...
