I am the owner of a 2010 FOREST RIVER WILDWOOD 22RB.. I am happy with the purchase.. not everything I wanted.. but its 4 years newer than my previous TT (Jayco).. and about 4 feet longer.. and best part. I only paid $300 more for this than what I sold my 2006 JAYCO for.

A few pictures: http://www.hometownsitedesign.com/wildwood.html

I will probably pick it up later this week. Ordering a WDH now.. so when it comes in I will take it down to the dealer and bring the camper home.

UPDATE on my new2me camper..

Dealer was preparing my camper for delivery and found that the furnace did not work. They ordered a new electric panel of some sort. They installed the new panel yesterday.. and the furnace still didn't work. They called SUBURBAN (furnace mfg).. and were told how to bypass the panel to test the furnace.. furnace worked. So new panel was apparently bad. A new panel is on the way. I probably will not pick up the trailer until Monday or Tuesday. I am glad they are taking the time to check everything out. They said they would even go over and freshen up the caulking on the roof.

Anyway.. thats cool with me. I need to trim some trees next to my camper driveway on Saturday (anybody have a good chain saw).. With all the rain.. I just haven't been able to get the project completed. Some of the branches hang over the area where the camper sits. When I had the JAYCO.. they were a pain in the a$$ and really left a bunch of leaves and stubborn stains on my camper. I am sure it isn't good for the roof either.

by the way.. I really don't care about the propane furnace. I never, ever.. turned the one on in my JAYCO. I always used the campgrounds electric.. and ran my little ceramic heater. However.. I do want it in working order... just because.

I thought about calling you guys to see if you had a chain saw.. I had to cut all those trees down with scissors!

(wish I had a carport for the camper.. that would be nice Very Happy )

lol, we do have a chain saw..I just got confused because I cleaned carpets in five rooms, it felt as if I cut those trees with scissors.lol

Have you looked into the cost of a carport? One family up the road from us has a carport that has a trap on the top. I will have to go by and take a picture. But it would be good to invents in one soon. Do you know the height of your camper?

Picked up my camper today.. its safely home in the driveway. This weekend I'll be cleaning up and putting some of my stuff from the old camper,.. into the new (new2me) one.

I was really happy with the "pull" home. This camper is about 4 feet longer than my other one.. and weighs about 700 pounds more. I really couldn't tell any difference in the way my truck pulls it.. so that's a good thing. This one has tandem axles.. so backing is supposed to be a little easier. I really didn't see much difference. It might pivot a little slower than the single axle.. but backing was about like the JAYCO.

Chuck, our 35' double axle is so much easier to pull than our 17' hybrid single axle and backing into a site, although we are double the length, getting the right angle is much easier with our BIG one.

Let's camp soon.
