RE: Where's everyone going this year?

We will spend most of the summer weekends in the Pymatuning area and our yearly trip will be to Michigan. Plan to hit the Holland, Grand Have and Saugatuck area and then up to the Traverse City area and over to sleeping Bear Dunes and Leland.

RE: Rockwood Windjammer roof

It rolls over the sides like other travel trailer do, or at leas mine does. The only seams on the top are at the front on the v-nose and the rear across the back.

RE: Tundra and Windjammer 3008W - any experience?

I have the 3008W and I get a little pull when I am being passed by a semi or large truck. That being said, I am only using an ez lift friction sway control and plan on upgrading the hitch this year. At some point down the line I will probably go to a 3/4 ton truck just for the additional payload and part of our planning for the future. The Tundra handle pulling it through the mountains of Pennsylvania and Virginia with no problem but in the end it is what you are comfortable with.

RE: Does your level change as slide goes out??

I have learned to compensate while setting up and leveling, with the 2 slides on the same side it will lean especially because of the power stabilizer jacks.I can usually tell right away that it is still off by the bathroom door moving.

RE: Colonial Williamsburg in June

We went to Colonial Williamsburg this past June the week of the 16th ans stayed at American Heritage and the temps got up to 96 mid week. It was better than when I was a little kid and my parents took me and it was 100 plus all week.

RE: Williamsburg VA for Easter 2015

We stayed at American Heritage in June and it was a wonderful place. You should not have to worry about the length of the rig there. They were working on upgrading and sites at the time in the back section of the park. It was convenient to Williamsburg and the Colonial Parkway to Jamestown and Yorktown was a pleasant drive.

RE: Suggestions for Full Hook-up CG near Acadia N.P.

We stayed at Hadley's Point last year, had full hookup site and it was a very clean and friendly park.

RE: jayco vs forest river

We had a Jayco it was a 2009 298RLS and we were completely satisfied with it for the time we had it. No real problems the A/C gasket went bad and a problem with the door lock but other than that no issues. We now have a Windjammer 3008W since April and can honestly say we are satisfied with this trailer so far. i have a small problem that will be dealt with at the end of the year where the luan panel on the cabinet next to the shower is pulling away and the staples backed out but nothing to cry about. We always thought we would be Jayco loyal and even looked at a new one in January but it would have meant a truck upgrade and that was not going to happen just yet. We stumbled across this at a dealer because we always like to look and it fit our needs perfectly. I do not think you can go wrong with either brand.

RE: Is a Tundra out of the Question

I have a 2010 Tundra Double Cab and could not be happier with the towing experience. We took a trip to Maine last year and had no issues with the old trailer and this year we bought a 34' Windjammer that has a GVW of 8400#. It pulled through the mountains of Virginia flawlessly. I have a standard Reese WDH with a EAZ Lift friction sway control and there was minimal sway. At some point I will upgrade to a better setup but so far this has been fine. Would I like more payload? Yes, but until I find the right truck sometime down the road that I am satisfied with the Tundra will do just fine.

RE: Rockwood Owners

We have had our Windjammer a little over a month now and could not be happier. We have the 3008W and the floorplan is great for my wife and I. I lost some room on the outside storage from our previous trailer but it just made me get more creative and get rid of the stuff we really did not use.

RE: Best Family Campground near Bar Harbor/Acadia

We did Hadley's Point last year and it was close to everything and a quiet enjoyable stay.

RE: Accident I79 North of Pittsburgh

To add to more headaches for travelers on 79, this was in the paper today because of this accident. Travel Advisory – Emergency Bridge Repair Project on I-79 in Butler County The bridge carrying I-79 over East Lancaster Road has been restricted to one lane in both directions between the intersections of Route 19 and Route 3025 (Yellow Creek Road) after a truck crash damaged a beam. This bridge is located in Lancaster Township, Butler County. Beginning the week of May 5, the road passing under I-79 (East Lancaster Road) will be closed to facilitate the bridge repairs. A detour will be in place (please see the map below for the detour route). The road is expected to reopen on May 24. The work for this emergency bridge repair project includes the removal and replacement of two overhead beams. This $500,000 emergency bridge repair project is being constructed by Thornberry Construction of West Sunbury and is expected to be completed by August.

RE: Accident I79 North of Pittsburgh

I see both sides of the argument, being someone that has a Class B and has driven straight trucks and has had quite a bit of interaction with truck drivers. Yes there are truck drivers that do not pay attention or are not experienced enough at what they are doing. I try not to drive next to them because of how many times we had to load trucks and teach them how to properly secure the load. The other side is when you are hauling 30,00# in stop and go traffic and you purposely leave enough space for you to stop, how many ignorant people think that the space is there for them to slide in at the last second. All that weight does not stop instantaneously.

RE: Jayco vs. Other brands experiences?

We have had ours since 2009, and loved every minute of it and it has not given us a problem. the worst thing we had was the A/C gasket went bad and water was dripping through the unit. We have been looking to upgrade to a newer one but nothing out there caught our eye until 2 weeks ago. We are trading in our Jayco for a Rockwood Windjammer 3008W this Saturday. Hopefully the Rockwood will treat us as good as our Jayco did, my wife thought we would be brand faithful but htis has changed her opinion so we will see.
