Hi! This will be our first pup and we're looking for opinions/advice regarding the two finalists in our search. The first is a Rockwood Freedom 2560G. It is a 2011 model but is being sold as new and will have all the warranties as it's been sitting on the dealers lot for over a year. It has a power lift system as opposed to a traditional crank, although the crank can be used as a backup The second is a 2013 Viking Legend 2485SST. It has a crank lift system, but can also be raised/lowered with a cordless drill. Both have slide out dinettes, cassette potti, inside/outside shower, heated beds, 3 way fridge, heater, in fact, the ammenities are almost identical. GVWR for the Rockwood is 3,249 and for the Viking is 3,502. Our Honda Ridgeline should be able to handle either of these as it's rated for 5,000 lbs. The Rockwood comes with an awning whereas the Viking comes with a 9' screenroom. I think either of these pups would suit our needs, but was hopeful someone who owns or has owned a Rockwood or a Viking similar to the ones that we are looking at could weigh in with their opinions. I havn't gotten firm prices on either, but in conversations with both dealerships I think the Rockwood is going for about $10,500 and the Viking about $13,000. For what it's worth, the Rockwood is being sold by Rousseau's RV Center in Lakeville, MA and the Viking is at Mann's RV in Rutland, MA. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give.
