So the DW and I have looked around and have picked out the Rockwood Mini Lite 2306, by Forest River. I saw a floor plan on a local dealer site that looked the same, the Flagstaff Micro Lite 23LB. Looking at the specs, what is offered, options everything, as far as I can tell, these trailers are identical.

Is that standard practice in the RC world? Why would they bother to make the identical trailer but market under a different brand at the same time?

Forest River is a huge RV producer owned by Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway.  They produce RVs under a lot of different names.  You can have a Rockwood dealer and a Flagstaff dealer in the same community because they technically do not compete with each other.

Alright I see, so they can sell the same trailer to different dealers in the same area. The same but different. LOL Crazy stuff. Why they can't just sell the same thing at different dealers in the same town is beyond me. Just means they would have to compete with each other for pricing. Oh know, we can't have that.  Shocked

And like Chevy vs. GMC, usually sister models will have one "average" brand with an average finish and pricing, and the other will be a little more "upscale".  Functionally the same, maybe with a few minor advantages for the higher price - maybe one comes with an outside shower and the other doesn't.

They are the same trailer...  The differences lie in the interior color schemes.   There may be a small difference here and there with some interior trims, but basically go with the color scheme you like best, whether it is flagstaff or Rockwood.  Both are quality units.
