Micro-lite 21fbrs

I was hoping the the experienced TT purchasers out there could help me. I have never bought a TT before, and i wanted to know, is $15,100 a good price for a 2014 21'micro-lite? The TT has a power awning, electric tongue jack, outside shower, grill, etc. I look forward to hearing from you all. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

You could get a quote from one of the big internet dealers like RV Wholesalers with all the same options to use for comparison.

Sounds like a good price to me. If you look at Forest River website, there are several option packages so it is hard to know if what you are looking at compares to the 2014 21FBRS I just got. But I paid $15,900 for mine and it seems to have most of the options except an electric tongue jack.

I'd say it's a good price. Dealers here in Texas get about $17,900 for its sister, the MiniLite 2109S (same options).

Yes. We also added a slide topper.

Yes it has a slide.

If we can get the dealer to throw in some type of blinds/night shades we will get the TT. I didn't know that those were non-standard options. It seems to me that they would come in the TT to give privacy over pull curtains, but hey, I'm new to this.

Thanks everyone!

The curtains that come with the TT work very well at night and do a great job of blocking any light from coming in. For a more homey look, we added sheers that I purchased at JCPenney for about $15/pair. We purchased 5 pair of 24 inch long panels (10 total) and used 9 of them - 3 panels behind the sofa, one at each small window next to the bed and 4 across the front window. They still let plenty of light in. The curtain rods are the lightweight ones from Wallyworld and they are behind the curtains that came with the trailer with the rods sitting on top of their rods, ends pulled out as far as they will go.

For the front window, we purchased 2 hose ring guides like the one in the shower and attached one to each side at the bottom of the window. I sewed a piece of binding tape across the bottom of both the sheers and the trailer curtains so rods could be placed in them, then inserted the rods into the guides to hold the curtains against the angled wall to prevent the curtains from hanging over our faces. Below are some photos.

Here's a package of the hose ring guide and what it looks like (purchased at United RV in Fort Worth - check your local RV part store as they may be cheaper there than on line. We paid $1 each; online prices were $3-4 each plus shipping.)

Here's the guide in use. We used a nicer rod for the TT curtain as it sits in front of the panels at the front window.

And this is how the rods sit behind/on top of the installed TT curtain rods.

We purchased the 21fbrs with the convenience package A and night shades, power tongue jack, gas oven, power awning, aluminum wheels, carbon monoxide detector, heated mattress, water purifier, and the crate-a-breeze roof vent. I would pass the next time on the heated mattress and water purifier.
