I have, but since we were shopping for a 5er I have no impressions other then knowing it's made by people using the same processes as Northwoods (many former Northwoods employees) and is owned by the same people.
2008 F350SD V10 with an 2012 Arctic Fox 29-5E When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.
Outdoor RV is improving the line and no longer has wood construction. Walls in all lines are alu frame. The Blackrock is a new replacement line. Stone vs Rock, I don't know what they were thinking. I still like the Wind River line.

When did this happen? I talked to the factory 5 months ago and wood wall framing was still part of the Timber Ridge line.
The wood framing advantage is better insulation than Al framing. And if you're going to have wood in the walls anyway as fibreglass backing and the interior-facing layer of the laminate, why not have wood studs? Well, to answer my own question, I guess "weight" is why.
And Outdoors RV already has 5 different lines, from the top: BlackStone, WindRiver, TimberRidge, Creekside and Backcountry. Do they really need another? Or will they be replacing one?
Anyway, I'd like to see the floorplans of the new Black Rock line, and any other info online if anybody has seen anything. We like their products and would like to upgrade.
