Flyfisher,

We have really enjoyed ours. It sets up so easily and tows great. Instead of air bags, we used the super springs and they have worked great.

Congratulations to both tsewall (Tom) and Flyfisher (Brett) on yourpurchases.

I think your Fords will do great pulling you Redwoods. I have have been very surprised how easy and smooth our 2012 RW 36 RL tows. Of course we have only towed about 765 miles on flat Indiana and Michigan roads. We will find out this July how it tows in the mountains as we are planning a trip to Gunnison, Colorado and to the Four Corners area.

Hoosierguy,
Thanks for the reply and vote of confidence on the Fords. We live in the Denver, Co area so we'll be doing a lot of mountain travel.
Brett

We have purchased the 36RE at Windish RV in Lakewood, CO. We worked with Cory as our salesman. We ordered the unitJanuary 6th, 2012. It was delivered to the dealership last week. We close on the deal and pick it up March 31, 2012.

Well, we have had ours since November and used it first for Deer Hunting with limited use. Got a few kinks worked out and learned a little more about the unit. We started using it more full time recently for work and learned a little bit more about the unit and got a couple more minor kinks worked and one major one fixed (the water was all hot out of all of the outlets for some reason).

Anyway, I just want to say that now that all those things are taken care, we could not be happier with our purchase. I think the thing that I like the most is how easily it tows with my Dad's (now mine) 1996 Ford F350 7.3 turbo diesel. Once I put the super springs on, it worked great together, even the color of the truck matches up real with the 36RE. I also can not say enough about how easy it is for me to get it ready to haul and especially how easy it is to set up. I can have it leveled, sewer and water hooked, electric hooked up and slides out in less than 5 minutes. That is easier than it used to be with a diesel pusher I owned and much easier than any 5th wheel or trailer that I ever used. That is really great if the weather is bad or cold. That is the best thing about these units. The way you can just slide out the sewer connection is just so well thought out. Plus, who can say enough about the auto leveling system.

The inside of the unit is just so home like. I really thought that the slide out trash can was just a gimmick until I have used it. The bags fit just perfectly and if I have dirty or wet hands, it just helps avoid creating a bigger mess. Also, my wife and I just love the front walk in closet. There is so much storage in the unit, that it is hard to really use it all. There are also plenty of electrical outlets for all of our electronic gadgets. We are really enjoying the unit. I could go on and on, but this is by far the best RV setup (including the luxury diesel pusher) that we have owned or used. It is sort of amazing since they had such a short time to plan and start up the production of these units. It just goes to show you what you can do when you take a bunch of guys familiar with something and start from scratch to make something really functional and elegant at the same time.

Wow! I can not believe that I just wrote that much, but it is all our true feelings and not much fluff involved with that. I thought that my wife would like this unit a lot better than me, but as it turns out, this unit was really designed to make a man happy as far as functionality and keep the woman happy with it's home like looks and comforts.

That's great news! I wish this kind of information could get on the other forums too because there seems to be a bias against Redwood.

Yes that's right...for some reason people feel insulted if you don't buy what they have yet they probably wouldn't buy the same unit again either. So they feel the need to put down or bash another brand.
