Ordered a 2503S on Saturday

After looking at this trailer for 2 years I finally ordered a minilite 2503S. The newly added pass through storage put me over the top as well as my wife loving the big bathroom. Hopefully get it by the first week of March. The dealer was honest and fair, no high pressure.
I will be towing it with a Ram 1500 Quad Ecodeisel.
Can't wait to get camping.

Any words of wisdom since this is my first travel trailer.

Congrats on the new TT! We just purchased a 2503S ourselves in Nov 2015 - first trip was over the new year week!

Pulls great, lots of room and storage for the 2 of us and the 3 dogs!

CA-2503S, does your new camper have the curved shower door? I've seen the new ones with the old and the new shower door. What hitch are you using?
Good Luck with the new camper.

Congrats! I watched a walk-though on it on youtube and I think that's the smallest trailer I've seen that didn't have the shower curtains but solid walls...very nice!

You will have a ball with it....search for tips on what to do and not do when you are accepting delivery of it and they are going over the trailer with you. (Have them hook up water and power and test EVERYTHING.)

We have the curved shower doors. We put the trailer on a EZlift WD hitch with sway control to help the aging Infiniti deal with the weight and extra wind loads.

Previously we were pulling a 23 foot Centurion Wakeboarding boat without a WD hitch - about the same weight (6K) - surge brakes vice electric brakes, double axle - and we did have a couple of times in the 6 years of puling the boat that the cross-winds made it difficult to keep everything straight on the road...

But then again ... if the winds are gusting that much we usually weren't going anywhere with the boat!


Enjoy your new trailer - we certainly are enjoying ours!
