any more new WeekendWarriors ??

WW pretty much took the toyhauler business from when it was merely an idea all the way to a national sport. Did they completely roll over and die? No mea culpa for the Father of Our Sport?? I kinda wish I still saw them on the high-end RV lots.
R.I.P. or Glad-To-See-Ya-Go! ????

WW is still produced in limited numbers in CA, but they are not the original mfg. Warrior Lifestyles ought the rights to the name, their old phone number and leftover stock. They had some serious quality issues upwards the end, and that coupled with the industry taking a hard hit due the economy was enough to do them in. I miss mine.

My son has a Weekend Warrior that I have worked on. It is one of the most poorly made trailers I have ever worked on. From a leaky roof due to an improper installation to a pieced together frame and everything in between was put together poorly. He even had a water tank break because one end of the tank was held up off the support rails by a large misplaced bolt that eventually caused the tank to crack. Mabe some of the older ones were OK, but the later ones were not vey good.

What year was his? Mine was a 2006. I did have some leak issues, but that was mainly due to poor maintenance by the previous owner. I was not a fan of the wood framing, but their floor plans are outstanding.

Hi Brian, His is a 06 or 07. I flipped the axels for him because his plumbing was dragging when he headed out in the desert. He bought his because of their good reputation. I think that they were just sticking together whatever they could, using help from in front of the Home Depot, just to sell whatever they could. None of the suspension parts had ever been greased and were so rusted that I had to drill out the holes just to get grease in. I also had to re frame the front of the roof where it joins the front cap, because of the dry rot. I re sealed it with Eternabond. It's the best stuff for jobs like that. You never have to reseal again. From my experiance with RV's, I think you buy a big kit and it's up to you to make it work. Once you have it all working you'll sure have fun. Besides, keeping it in repair keeps you out of the bars !!

I had the same issue in the same spot and used the same stuff to repair! We revealed the whole front left corner. Everything was soft. Nice and dry when I sold it though. Had tons of room inside as well as storage and towed great. I know the Superlites had some frame issues, but the others seemed ok.

I've got the 2009 WideLite SLSLC 3405. WW went out about 6 mos. after I bought mine. So far, no leakage problems but I kept it covered this past winter. It was not covered the year before. When I 1st got it, I didn't see any sealant along the front under the fiberglass cap so I refused delivery of it and made the factory seal it 1st. I had to replace the TV. I sent the old one back under warranty but they made me pay for the new one, $650 which they were going to credit me once the old TV showed up at their factory. Not long after I shipped the old one back, they went belly up. Never got the credit. So far, knock on wood, it's been a pretty good rig. Just kinda big. Been thinking of selling it and getting something a little smaller. The kids don't go with us any more so I don't need all the room I used to need when I had to carry so many bikes.

Cool !
Post a couple pics of it.

I just looked at their website for a quick minute and it looks like they are now in Idaho as versus the SoCal they were years ago as Weekend. Maybe that was just a dealer I don't know.
I miss my warrior.

As far as I can tell they are only making trailers, no 5th wheels.
