I purchased a 2013 Micro-Lit 23Lb last May (2013). When we camp it's usually only my wife and I and although there's no slide, there's still enough room for the both of us without tripping over each other. The model I bought had the "Murphy Bed" option and it offers a lot more living space during the days and evenings. I've only used my Micro-Lite for three weekends last summer, but there were no big issues. The small stuff...all RVs have them...was a broken screen door latch and one side of the screening worked its way out of the door groove. The factory sent me a new latch and I took the screen door off and will have it to the dealer for re-screening this weekend. The only mods so far is a Maxx Air II cover on the front vent and I made a by-passed for the water filter (we only boondock and don't drink from the faucets). The only disappointment I have is that it didn't come with window blinds, except for the kitchen window (by law because of the stove top burners). Although all windows are tinted so it's really a very small disappointment and the curtains work fine. All and all, I'm very satisfied with my Micro-Lite.

Re splash guards. I've seen them at Lowes and Home Depot. I can't remember where I bought mine, but here something similar from Amazon:

Spraymaid Bathtub Splash Guards - in White - Amazon.com

I caulked both the inside and outside in addition to using the adhesive backing. The caulk adds to the lateral stability in addition to providing another level of assurance that water stays in the shower.

An additional thought. You might consider a shower curtain with pockets because the trays in the shower stall won't hold anything. I bought one at K-Mart.

00Buck I've already checked the shower curtains with pockets because I noticed the shower didn't have a lot of room. The splash guards seem like a pretty easy fix to keeping water in the shower! Thanks again for all the suggestions!!

Many believe that a fan inside the fridge circulates the cold air and allows the fridge to work more efficiently. In hot weather you will stop or reduce the condensation on the cooling vents. They are just computer fans and use little energy. I bought the type that has an on/off switch so I can turn it off when I am dry camping. Use the "search" box at the top of the forum page and you will find many posts on this issue. I took out the refridge bulb (which is very hot) and wired it in there. Don't need the light. There are internet sites that sell these and also you can find them on Ebay.

I live in Marietta, GA just north of Atlanta. Right now I am in Okeechobee, Florida on my shake down trip. I bought my 21FBRS in Dec and I am just now trying it out. Prior to this I had a 1986 21' Sunline which was a good trailer. There is so much difference between the older trailers and the new modern tech ones. I read a lot and the LED lights are a super plus for an old man....hard to believe they make so much difference! With my slide out I have lots of space. I am 6'1" and I have zero issues with the shower, lots of room, lots of very hot water and the drain preforms great with no leaks. I love all the light from the sky-light. No oven but I could care less. The trailer is constructed with Aluminum and fiberglass which means no rust!!! Plus this trailer tows great due to the light weight construction. Another plus is when it rains; sounds great...rain on a roof. The electric awning is another plus and then turn on the under awning LED strip lights...WOW!
For the complainers; "There is no perfect trailer." But my 21FBRS is close for me.

We bought a 2013 21 FBRS in April. Lived in it 5mo. Moved into it after we got rid of a 40' American Eagle, after 11yrs.
