Ours had the bathroom in the V. People were blown away by the size of it....double sinks, double vanities, double mirrored medicine cabinets, etc.

One thing is certain, some lucky family got an awesome, barely used and even improved (BR TV wall mounted) V-Lite! I thought of hiding a note in the back of a kitchen drawer; We loved and enjoyed this TT, her name is Francis. Treat her good and enjoy her as much as we did!

Counting down the hours 'til next weekend! We're headed out again for a 4 day trip.

Found the layout we wanted, single slide,table and chairs and the price we were comfortable with. Been one year now and I'm glad we bought the Flagstaff. Dealer has been good too, looked after any concerns I had.

X eleventy on the table and chairs

When we started shopping for an RV I told DH flat out: NO banquettes!

We saw several RVs that we liked, except for the banquette.... got to a point where I'd walk in, spot the banquette and walk back out.

Since it's just DH and I, we've even taken two of the chairs out, bagged them up and stored them in DH's hobby shop.

Another MUST for us was being able to view the TV without having to turn our heads 90*. Some floor plans just make no sense to us. I've seen some where you have to sit at a banquette and watch with your head turned. Nyet, not for us. I want my creature comforts; sit in my recliner and watch and/or nap. :-)

No, we don't go camping to watch TV, but on rainy days?? (SMH)

I really like the part about leaving a note! They really become a part of the family and is painful to let them go... But a new one is ready to be filled with new and exciting memories also! I think next time we'll leave a secret note too

I looked at a lot of campers and went to a lot of shows. The workmanship on the 21fbrs was the same as the mini winne if not better. The price was better and the weight was less.

I had a Keystone tt that didn't have good storage, no bunkhouse and no outside kitchen. We only had 6 months and we were out looking, not really thinking anyone would give us what we needed on a trade. We were wrong so dealer first, floor plan and options. We looked at a lot of different brands and fell in love with the 8528TWBS Floorplan. I think we traveled to 10 different dealers looking but came back to this one. They didn't have one with what we wanted so we ordered. First trip out was this weekend. Love it

This dealer we used only had one 2014 left on the lot that he wanted to show us. It was a Flagstaff 31RLBSS and was in the Diamond Series. This was one trailer that the wife and I shared the most likes over...so we brought her home. Such an upgrade from our old Aerolite.
