Does anyone on here own, or have any previous experience with the Rockwood line of fifth wheels owned by the Forest River Corp, some of the things I would like to know is, are they built well for a lite weight 5er, I also was wondering if their insulated well enough to use has a 4 season RV, because they do advertise that they are built with a heated and enclosed underbelly.

I have a 2002 Rockwood 2710. Have had it for just over 3 years now and no major problems. For an ultra lite trailer, I felt it was one of the best built lite trailers in its class. When looking at any lite trailer, expect to see less sturdy construction material. That is just nature of keeping the weight down. Although I use my trailer year round, I would not consider it a 4 season triler, more of a 3 season trailer. I have never had a problem wiht the heated tanks as long as you have electric hookup, otherwise they will drain your batteries in short order. As for insulation, they use foam block insulation. Not the most efficient, but again, a weight tradeoff, it is lighter. When camping in the winter I always have an electric heater so I do not use the furnace as much, but do need both to keep up in the really cold weather (Below 30F). I have received nothing but exceptional customer service from Rockwood and my dealer. For a lite trailer I would recommend Rockwood.

wife and I checked them out real well when we started looking @ Fivers......seemed to me to be one of the better "lite wt." rigs out there....good construction and all the amenities you'd want out of a rig...fit and finish was pretty good as well.
