Picking a good dealer is important as well. You want someone that will support you after the sale for any warranty work. I bought my first unit 5 years ago, the shower leaked. We had it back several times for the same issue, at one point the service manager literally took a shower in the unit to double check the work. They were very nice, very great to work with, and just as frustrated as we were.

These things aren't built like houses, there will be issues.

I bought the Flagstaff Micro Lite last Spring and have had no problems at all with it. I upgraded from the Flagstaff A Frame which I used for 3 seasons and again had no problems.

I do agree with liking the layout of the Micro Lite. I did turn the closet by the door into a pantry by adding shelves. Added some touch lights under the counter on the left and in the closets by the beds. Other than that really like it. Sometimes with an overnighter, I don't even put the slide out - still enough room to navigate the inside. Enjoy!

Will add also that if you are concerned, the air conditioner will freeze you out and the furnace will really heat up the place. Both work great.

We have a 3yr old Micro Lite 45DS and love it. No problems from day one although I have made a few mods to it. Great little wagon for the two of us.

We purchased our first TT last January and it's a 2011 Microlite 23LB. We absolutely love it. The only problem we had was a toilet leak when we unwinterized it in the Spring. It was an easy $20 fix.

We have a 2015 25KS and love it! Tons of interior storage; some of it we still haven't stocked with anything.


Love the two entry doors, large bathroom, full length awning, dual purpose murphy bed saves overall length, under bed drawer, outdoor tv.


Agree with dealer comments; our dealer prep was great.


Best of luck...

We've got the Mini Lite version (2503S). Build on the same line, just different interior colors. Found a problem with the Murphy Bed during the PDI (some missing screws) on picking it, but dealer fixed it right there.

No other real issues, other than a slight leak at the base of the shower wall. (Caulk is a wonderful thing.)

Wife LOVED the huge bathroom. We were deciding between the 2304KS and the 2503S. The bathroom tipped the scale for the DW. I also liked the larger U-dinette.

I've done a number of mods:

1. Inside switch & pilot light for hot water heater electric element
2. Honeywell RHB111B digital thermostat
3. Fencepost sewer hose holder
4. PVC pipe WDH spring bar holder
5. BAL Hide-a-Spare for spare tire
6. 2” receiver/beefed up frame for bike rack
7. 4 pin connector for bike rack lights
8. Routed fresh water tank drain to side of trailer
9. 110VAC outlet on street side sofa table

Thank you all for so much great information and advice. My wife and I truly appreciate it. We live in Northern New Jersey. We recently went camping with some friends who own travel trailers and we realized what we were missing from the start. We are considering buying our trailer from Escape RV in Sandyston, NJ Escape RV Dealer | New RVs & Used RVs | Travel Trailers, Motorhomes & Dump Trailer| NJ,NY,PA,CT

So many great ideas for mods too. I will reference this post for ideas.

Again thank you all.


Steve

I like that website but the dealer invoice numbers are worthless. I doubt my dealer is selling us a 2016 23WS at a loss. No one, including that website, has a clue what any individual dealers 'Deal" is with a manufacturer.
