Flagstaff Micro Lite versus Rockwood Mini Lite?

Hi Forum!

I am actively researching our first travel trailer for our family of 4. We really like the Rockwood Mini Lite 2306, but now I've found the Flagstaff Micro Lite 23LB and I cannot figure out what the difference is between these two units?!

Can you tell me from your experience what the difference between the Rockwood Mini Lite versus the Flagstaff Micro Lite?

And also, do you like yours?!

Thanks!

Erica

Flagstaff and Rockwood are twin brands.
Made in the same factory.
Only differences are outside graphics and interior decor design.

What Dan said, plus I'll add this, my non-scientific research has found you'll likely get a better buy on a Rockwood than a Flagstaff as it would appear there are more Rockwood units built (vs Flagstaff) and there seems to be more Rockwood dealers. More inventory = a better chance of the dealer wanting to make a sale. Then again, I may be completely wrong. I paid a few bucks more because I liked the Flagstaff dealer WAY BETTER than any of our local Rockwood dealers. Glad I did too!

We purchased the Micro Lite 23FB this past March, as mentioned they are the same as the Rockwood.
My local dealer carries the Flagstaff version so that's why I purchased the ML.
Great little trailers, we had a blast all season and no issues at all (accept learning how everything worked )

Yep, way more Rockwood dealers than Flagstaff dealers.
And there are way more "wholesale" dealers that sell Rockwoods.
I only know of one "wholesale" dealers that sells Flagstaff, RV Direct. Funny thing is that they also sell Rockwoods too.

I bought the Flagstaff Micro Lite version. One dealer had 2 location where I was shopping. One location sold the Rockwoods and the other sold the Flagstaff. I played them against each other and the Flagstaff guys were hungrier and gave me my price. Great trailer..you're making a good choice!

I got a good deal on the Flagstaff. Rockwood dealer was way higher. I have 30,000 miles on mine. Great trailer.

Just as everyone else said, they are both the same made on the same assembly line side by side. They just pull different colored caps, sides, decals and fabrics depending upon what's on the work order attached to the trailer tongue. I loved my 21DS.

Before buying ours, we checked a number of dealers. One dealer told us that FR requires dealers for a brand to be more than 50 miles apart. So to get around the distance limit, a dealer will take on the other brand. We were talking to a company that carried both but in two locations. Unfortunately for us, the Flagstaff dealer was farther away from home. We ended up finding another Flagstaff dealer very close to home that gave us the price we liked. Helped that surveys had found the near home dealer had a very high rating from prior customers.
