You probably made your best deal at the dealer. From what I have found, you can get a much better deal away from the RV show. The dealers have to pay for that floor space at the convention or expo center, and it does not come cheap. They are not going to eat that cost and take it from the bottom line if they can help it. The "RV show super low special price" is usually not very special.

Welcome to the fun.
I am not familiar with the model but we had a Flagstaff Micro Lite (made on the same production line as the Rockwood Mini Lite) that we were very happy with. Looking at the floorplan on the 2506S, I really like the front kitchen. Not having to do all that extra setup is nice.

The shows here are in Feb and March, but our dealer does not attend. When we bought ours we went to the area show to see what the floor plan looked like got a take or leave price ........Left it, went back to our dealer ordered the same trailer with more options, and saved over $1,000 from what the "show" dealers price was..........

That's common, even with a dealer that is at a certain show.

We had a 2011 Aerolite HTT that we paid 15.4K for in real numbers in Sept of 2010 from a local dealer. The following spring after the Pittsburgh RV show I ran into a couple who had the same model trailer from the same local dealer except they had purchased at the RV show in Jan. He told me how great of a deal they received because of the special RV show price which was 16.9K. I ruined his weekend, he didn't believe me until I showed him my paperwork I had in the trailer.

I love going to RV shows and playing with the salesmen to see what kinds of BS I can get them to tell me. If you want to have fun with them.... find a 40' 5er and ask the salesman if you can tow it with a 1/2 ton truck with a v6

Going to the Greater KC show next weekend. We bought our Flagstaff there two years ago. We go every year. This year we will focus on models to full time in instead of looking at everything.

We just purchased our new 2016 Sandpiper while at Pomona RV show. We purchased from Camping World Valencia, CA. Love the improvements from our 2005 Cedar Creek!
