New 25KS! Pics

Love the large awning, ladder, bathroom, and murphy bed/sofa, interior storage. Great floorplan for two. Visiting tent campers get their own door to bathroom.

Now let's see if I can post a couple pics:

Congrats. It looks great. The bathroom on your model is so big. And we really like the Murphy bed. Enjoy your new camper!

Beautiful! I know you will enjoy it. We started looking at the Murphy bed models, but my husband wanted something bigger with seperate bedroom since we usually go to bed and get up at different times. I hope you get many years of enjoyment from your trailer!

Thanks guys. We'll see if we still like the murphy bed when we have to change the sheets! But it let us get into a camper with a sofa and a large dinette in a small package. Our favorite sites always seem to be the short ones.

I believe the yellow sticker said 4400 plus. It's still at the dealership while I arrange storage so I haven't weighed it yet. I'm new to TTs so I'm not sure what items on the unit now weren't there when it was weighed. I assume she's close to 5000 before I even touch it.

Quick question..does your cushions on the kitchen table lay down evenly when making into a bed?
Our cushions are not a consistent height making into an uncomfortable bed when we gave guests.

They may not be. I noticed when I made up the dinette bed that the cushions didn't fit together well, and wasn't very comfy to lay on. Didnt notice height though

No matter how we configured they don't level out. Hope you have better luck.
Other than that we have been very please thus far.
Note of caution if any wind make sure your awning is tied down...we almost lost it over the camper in a very slight wind gust. During set up the first thing we do is tie it down.

220 Chap, nice camper and I wonder if I am seeing an optical illusion. The grab handle at the backdoor looks like it folds toward the rear of the trailer. All the ones I've seen fold across the door. Just wondering?

Not the same trailer but my handle folds in both directions.

I noticed they added End Tables to each side of the Murphy Bed and Couch. There probably is alot of space under them. You think they would have added a door or draws of some sort.

Here you can see the difference between your and ours.

Those enclosed shelving areas allow for pass through storage (of sorts) that campers with Murphy beds typically don't have. See exterior pics.

Ohhh I see now. Not sure if I would like that or not. I guess they use under the couch for the pass through. I do the same thing but I just use the area under the couch on the inside. I do like having the area clear on either side of the couch better.

It's good and bad. More exterior storage with this unit is good but it's harder to reach the shirt wardrobes. Overall we prefer having them. Also a nice place to set things down (drink, book etc) while using couch.
