When I bought mine - I thought the the same thing where the wood floor look was only an option with the Tuscan Door's and found out that wasnt the case - it was like a $250 upgrade though for the wood look floor and kept the Oak Cabinetry unlike the Tuscan Upgrade at the time was like $1,000.

one suggestion for the new 2306 Owner's to be

Get a tube or two of Dicor Self Leveling Lap Sealant and go over the seams in your roof and also where the Antenna wire comes into the roof, about a month or so after I took delivery of my camper I noticed I had a small amount of condensation on some of my cd's in the cabinet by the TV - after inspection I found the Cable and putty had seperated and was allowing water to come into my trailer - I cought it where there was no damage and you would never know that any water got in.

Also check those wheel bearings to make sure they are not loose - I had one become loose - was an easy fix but better to catch it before it comes an issue on a long trip. I now carry a spare set of bearings and grease seal just in case if one fails I can do an emergency repair on the side of the road or help someone that is stuck as well.

How do you check them? Are you talking about ensuring they're packed with grease, or something else? My experience with wheel bearings on my motorcycles is that they're not a serviceable item unless you completely remove the wheel, and then the bearing.

Yes on making sure they have grease in them as well as making sure they are tight. These bearing are not sealed like a motorcycle and are servicable.
to check them you would need to jack the wheel off the ground and give it a little tug - if you notice any plan they will need to be tightened until no play is felt but do not over tighten them or there will be trouble as well. I guess after owning a few trailer's and replacing bearing and races on the hub's as well as new axles you learn the in's and out's of them which really isnt all that hard if you are a handy person

Assateague is a must, especially, if you like horses! They are wild and go everywhere on the island. Check out these pics.

Beautiful! I checked reservations online and the park is filled...at least sites with electric...summer dates are pretty booked. You must have to book far in advance. We will def. go there....absolutely beautiful...

Those with the 2306...what size ball for the hitch? Is it a 2"?

Thanks

No - 2 5/16" ball.

What hitch are you planning on getting?
I have the Equalizer with sway control and weight distribution - have had zero issues once it was setup correctly to what I carry

Thank you!

I talked to the husband - we are doing the equalizer WDH with sway control as well. I can't wait! It'll be nice to go camping and if it rains, not have to worry about putting away wet canvas! It seems like it always rained with our popup. We'd have to come home and pop it back up to dry out...We did enjoy the camper - just not that part. Anyway...thanks everyone for the welcome and the advice

Good choice. That's the hitch we got on our 2306, and it works well. Also good call on the 14" wheels. Mine came with 13" wheels, but in hindsight I wish I had gone with 14" wheels.

Your crew of five should be fine in the 2306, but a rainy day at the beach might just push a few of your buttons. Assateague SP is beautiful but, as already noted, it books up fast and most of the sites are non-electric. The national park, as I recall, has no electric.

Enjoy your new 2306. We love ours.
Regards,
Greg
