Purchased a 2014 Micro lite FBRS

After a year of trying to decide between a HT Flagstaff Super lite or something smaller we finally ordered our Flagstaff Micro Lite 21FBRS. We are excited about being able to go ASAP! I would like to hear any tips, comments etc. from other owners!!

Thanks,

A Happy Camper

The DW did pretty much the same thing. Took us around a year to decide and the 21 was one of the options. Found we needed a little more space and picked up the 27RLWS

We have a 29 ft Salem BHSS that we keep at a campground at Table Rock Lake. My DH didn't want to pull something that big and our kids are grown. We leave it there for the family to use and we get together a lot. We bought this smaller one because we didn't want anything too large. I hope we don't feel too cramped😳we've camped a long time though and when the kids were little it was all 8 of us in a popup!!

In my experience, there is plenty of room for two people. The only area that feels cramped is the shower. It's pretty tight. Other than that, the open layout creates a sensation of spaciousness beyond its actual dimensions. It's easy to tow and park. It's light so you can load up the back of your tow vehicle.

The only tip I would offer concerns the shower. Get some splash guards (at least 30 inches) for the shower. Several owners have reported runoff problems without them. Also, check all your water fittings to ensure that they are tight. Water is the arch-enemy of RVs.

Congrats on the purchase. We purchased ours last year and are very happy with it. Some mods we did include.

Removed the water filter.
Added extra support to folding shelf.
Added towel rack in bathroom.
Added bug screens on vents.
Added LED strip light to outside.
Added screen door bar.
Replaced 300 toilet with 310 because of stink.

I have heard about the 300 also. Waiting to see what it does when it warms up. Seems a lot of folks complaining about the Dometic 300.

Vpierce, welcome to the forum. Your 21FBRS is the same as my Mini Lite 2109S. For just my wife and I the size works just fine. The shower is tight but doable. I haven't noticed any problem with the toilet. These units are a hobby. There will always be some improvement or "mod" that you will want to do. As JohnF said, I want to add support to the folding shelf this summer.

My "mods" so far:

Fantastic vent covers over both vents
4" topper for mattress
Winegard Wingman attachment for antenna
Winegard SensarPro signal meter
Fan in refridge
Shelf/towel rack in bathroom
Towel bars on inside of bathroom door
Bar across screen door
LED lights inside
A second battery
LED rope light under awning

The fun never ends!

Thanks for all the welcomes and suggestions. Where do you get splash guards for the shower. Our larger TT has a shower certain and we never had issues with water getting on the floor. I want to make sure we don't do any water damage to this one. Thanks!!
