Love our new 21 FBS Micro Lite

Took our new 21 FBS Micro Lite out this past weekend for a test run and well I'm more than pleased. Everything worked! My last unit was 45K Carriage fifth wheel and this little jewel showed it up!
It was so lite that my truck didn't even know it was there and then when we got to the campground I backed that thing up like a pro it was so easy. Did I say we are happy!!! And we are happy that we waited and got one that has 2200 pounds of cargo weight and the upgraded shower. I don't want to sound like I'm bragging here we're just Happy campers!

If anyone has questions about it I'll be more than happy to try to answer them Thanks for listening

Don't ya just love it??
This year alone, we've pulled our 21 fbrs thru the mountains of West Virginia,Virginia and Pennsylvania and across the flat lands of Nebraska, with a '08 GMC Denali XL, with 130,000 miles on it and never had a problem! (knock on wood).

You just solved my one and only dislike about my lil "Escape Pod"....where can I find someone to upgrade my shower to one like yours?? ....Anyone have a clue?

Love our 2015 Rockwood Mini Lite as well. Exactly the same layout except our shower is a curtain. If you find out what's involved in shower upgrade - I'd be interested.

We have been to almost every State Park in GA & SC, and some in VA. My TV is a 2014 Toyota Tacoma V6 Sport with tow package and it has no problem pulling in Smokies.

Recently spent a week at Hunting Island State Park, SC - 20 yards from the beach sand. The best campsite so far ! We will return every year.

We love our small apartment on wheels.

Wow! Saw the new shower at the Hershey RV Show on the Rockwood (2109s) and Flagstaff versions. Also had prep for backup camera. Slide out couch is slightly shorter because it has armrests. Didn't see the new cargo weight numbers. Guess that means an upgraded axle? Wait and see. Loved the 2109s so much we ordered one, couldn't beat the show price.

i am Flat jealous...We had one off the first 2015 and it didn't have the black tank flush, now it has a shower and upgraded CCC... what's that new couch look like? does it fold out instead of jackknife? I may have to "check" a new one out

We love our 21FBRS.

I guess I am in the minority but I like the shower curtain. We leave it open most of the time and it makes the restroom seem bigger. We are careful when showering that it stays inside the tub.

Ours does have the black tank flush but not the new shower or couch.

We downsized from a 32 footer and could not be happier. Tows likes a dream and still plenty of room for just the two of us.

We love our 21FBRS as well. We bought ours in July and have already taken it 4800 miles this summer. We have the 2015 model and are fine with the shower. We don't use it most of the time. We use the outdoor shower or the shower house at the camp grounds. We have been using the shower as a pantry or for extra storage. With only two people we have never used the fold down couch. I find that if we want to watch TV that its more comfortable to hook it up outside and sit in our gravity chairs! I only wish that there was a ladder!
