We just purchased one a couple of months ago. Unfortunately we haven't camped in it yet. Our first trip isn't for another 2 Weeks.

Did you get yours?

We have the 2014 and like it very much. We did pull out the dining table and benches and put in 2 recliners. Works better for us. I think you will like it.

Hey, that is an awesome idea with the Recliners!

We are really looking forward to our "Maiden Voyage"

The Counter Space is what really sold my wife on the Tracer.

Definitely the most counter space that we found for the size.

Yep counter space is great. Only down side we had was the dinnette. We are going to keep this for a few years and travel around Michigan area. Hope to upgrade to a larger trailer/5ver in about 4 years and start snowbirding.



If you change out for the recliners, make sure they are wall away. Very important!!

2016 Tracer 235 Air

We purchased our "235" August of last year have camped in it about 6 times.

We too removed the table and dinette and replace it with two recliners. Much more comfortable! The attached picture shows the area where the recliners go. I spruced it up a little by adding the plywood wall and molding. Added a awning over the slide out and have replace all the light bulbs with led's, much cooler!

We've only had one problem and that was a leak over the bed, no damage and water never got on the bed, caused by a seam in the roof where the rubber meets the fiberglass. The dealer fixed the problem and haven't had to bring the trailer back since.

The only thing that I would have liked is a bigger gray tank, currently it's a 30 gallon tank.

Nice Job Air235. It appears that replacing the dinette with recliners is very popular. I think the 1st "Mod" that I would like is the slide out awning. Not sure when but would like one. Any pointers on the awning (i.e. brand etc.).

Thanks

Oh and I was trying to figure out how to manually operate the slide in
case of a failure. Do you know where the "Brains" for the slider is located?

I saw the slide out motor controller under the frig, laying on the floor next to the inverter, I'll assume it's there on all of these trailers, mines a 2016... I've read the instructions on how to "move" the slider if the electric system fails but really didn't understand it much, I guess I will when the day it fails to move. All of the user manuals are on line on their web site, a nice feature.
