Flagstaff 2019 Microlite 23FBKS

Hello folks,

My wife and I are considering the purchase of a new 2019. Flagstaff 23FBKS.

Iím sure there are owners out there that have elder year models of the 23FBKS.

One question that I have is: Do you still have access to the refrigerator and bathroom when the slide is the IN position?

Also, have there been any negatives about this particular model.

Please send me a PM with your reviews.

Thanks so much for any replies.

We have a 2017 Rockwood 2303KS which is equivalent to this model. It is possible to squeeze by the dinette to get to the bathroom and refrigerator without opening the slide. It's a little tight but doable.

We have a 2017 Rockwood 2304ks, which is the same as a Flagstaff 23FBKS. I took a couple of pictures with the slide in so you can see the "squeeze through" space to the bathroom. We've been fine with it, but it might be a deal breaker for some people. Unless they've made major interior changes in the 2019 models, this is probably pretty close to what you'd find on the new models.

You can see that with the table down for travel, there's a spot where you can sit on the rear bench and scoot around from the dinette.

http://https://youtu.be/GvE_K555tNgHi there! If the space with the slide is a deal breaker, consider the only slightly smaller 21FBRS. It has all the options in your model except the dinette is different. It’s a couch with a foldable table that stores behind the couch. Couch also folds out to a bed. It’s roomy with the slide IN and simply spacious with the slide out! Here’s a great video I found that shows you the slide in and how much space there is. Again, little different model but might still suit your needs.

We have a 2018 25FKS Microlite having upgraded from the 2017 21FBKS Microlite.

With the smaller unit we had full access to the bathroom and fridge with the slide in and, as others have said, with it out it was roomy. However meals were awkward with the folding table having to be brought out from behind the couch and there was little to no room for me to cook when the table was set up. Additionally, a curtain across the foot of the bed did nothing to eliminate my early morning riser husband from waking me.

With the upgrade, which I really wanted due to the luxury of a bedroom door and more spacious kitchen/dinette we can get to the fridge but not to the bathroom with the slide in. Those extra 4 feet and deeper slide meant more to me. That may be a deal breaker for you.
