I looked at a number of new trailers today. I currently own a 2009 Crossroads Sunset Trail 27 RB. After picking apart most of them due to cheap and poor quality workmanship, I checked on the Rockwood Ultra Lite. The quality to me surpassed even the imagine. Now I need to get busy and see if my 2016 Ram Hemi will handle 6300 lbs. (Empty) and about another half ton full. Then I need to unload my current trailer. I think I'll try local first then go state wide. Trade in will not bring me much. Anyone own one of the Newer Rockwoods? Looking under the cabinets and the fit of the woodwork convinced me of quality work.

“and about another half ton full“

1,500+ is more likely.

If the truck can handle the family, gear and tongue weight; and you like the trailer, go for it.

We still have our 2010 TT because we have never found a better floor plan.

Good luck.

Thanks for the help. One thing that bugs me is everything I looked at has draw backs when the slide is in. Either you can't get to the bathroom or refrigerator when the slides are in and when in a rest area or a parking lot it isn't always advisable to put out the slide. The trailer I'm looking at has two different dump areas and I didn't see a flush valve. My old Sunset Trail has an open path to everything with the slides in and one dump valve and separate flush valve for the black tank. I have it all right now so will not be upset if my old trailer doesn't sell.

I just bought a new one (Rockwood).. Great fit and finish workmanship is good as compared to others. Built on convenience.. Wonder if there is a Rockwood members forum ??

Interesting. Quality isn't a word I would use for a Rockwood based on my past ownership. Maybe I should look at the newer stuff.

((not complaining about Rockwood here- we really enjoyed the one we had. Great floor plan. It just wasn't Quality by any stretch of the term. I'd term it Adequate.))

1 thing I've learned over 30 years of RVing and 4 trailers.....the term quality is a little overboard.
