New here - putting deposit on Rockwood 2306 today :)

We are so excited! Putting the deposit down on a Rockwood Mini Lite 2306 today. We are a family of 5. Our kids are 16, 10, and 9 months. First post here but have been reading and doing tons of searches! We just sold our popup 2 weeks ago and are moving up to the 2306. We will be towing it with our 06 Nissan Pathfinder. Glad I found this site - tons of info I hope the next 8 weeks go by quickly,,,

Danielle

Congrats on your decision and hope you like the 2306. We are a family of 4 and recently put our deposit down on the same unit. We're still waiting but can't camp in it now anyway so it's just as well. Make us a good one Forest River!

Cool, another expectant 2306 owner! Picking ours up on the 5th of March which, by the way, is only about 6 weeks from when we ordered it (we were told it would be 8 weeks). So, your wait may be shorter than you realized.

Where do you plan on camping? Which options did you go with?

Thanks all!
We plan on camping this May in Ocean City, MD at Frontier Town. I loved it there when I was a kid and now my kids love it too. We will probably go to some state parks and I am sure a Yogi Bear Campground lol. As soon as Disney allows booking for next summer, we are planning a trip to Fort Wilderness We are so excited!

The options that we ordered were:
Gas oven
14 in. Alum. wheels (hubby wanted lol)
Tuscan cabinetry with wood-look floor.
Conv. package A

We will have to get the weight distribution hitch and power tongue jack when we get it home. We ordered from RV Direct and having it shipped to our home so they can't install those items.

I hope you guys post pics of your campers when they come in.

Cool! We are camping at Assateague State Park at the end of May. That's just down the road from Frontier Town. We love the wild horses visiting our campsite. Make sure you toot if you see another Rockwood 2306 on the road.

Fort Wilderness is in my Neck of the Woods - that place is expensive - I had a buddy that worked for disney so got my site for half price when we stayed there - Nice place to stay though.

14" wheels are the way to go even if they are the upgraded to aluminum rims.

Gas oven here too - I use it to cook biscuits so we can have biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

I have Oak Cabinets with the wood look floor - the wood look floor is much nicer then the other IMO

I did not go with the Tuscan cause was afraid with my 5 year old if she wrote on the cabinets or I accidently scrape the cabinets with a bicycle it would be harder to do any scratch repairs.

So you were able to get oak cabinets with the wood floor? I thought that was an option only with the tuscan cabinets...you make a good point about little ones and making marks....
