I totally agree because I paid less than what it calculated as dealer invoice so they obviously got some kind of volume or show pricing but was way less than any other local dealer quoted for the exact same trailer and threw in brake controller and WDH both installed. Like anything on the net you take it with a grain of salt.

We bought a 25KS 2 years ago. Had a few problems at first and the TT was in for repairs for a couple of weeks to have warped cabinet doors replaced. All was covered by warranty and the dealer was great to deal with. We like the TT a lot and would definitely buy the same model again.

We bought our first camper ever last May, microlite 19fd, we love it we have had it out 8 trips so far and all is well. I love the way it is built all 6 panels are fiberglass I love the quality of the flagstaff. With that said all campers have some problems. I chose to go with an aluminum frame over stick built.

Happy camping!!!

Forgot to say, I picked it up from a local dealer. It was important to me to have a relationship with the local guy. I can always go to him for help.

Congrats. We like our Mini Lite 2503S a lot. I added an electrical outlet to the street side sofa "table" for the DW. Also a digital thermostat.

Also added a pilot light switch for the electric element of the water heater so I can turn it on/off from inside the bathrom. See pics and wiring diagram.

rockfordroo, Great mods.

What was the main advantage to replacing the digital thermostat? Also was it difficult? A number of years ago I replaced the one in my home so I have experience with that. Are the wires the same?

Digital thermostat controls temp a LOT better than the analogs. I replaced a Coleman Mach analog with the $20 Honeywell. If you want to spend a bit more, they make a Coleman Mach digital ($53 on Amazon: Robot Check). It's a direct plug and play.

The Honeywell will only run one fan speed - pick whichever you one you want; however, you can install a switch to allow you to change fan speeds. I installed one inside the T-stat, but you could also install an RV type rocker switch like this one, JR Products On/On Switch, Black SPDT 12625, in the wall next to the T-stat, which I've been thinking of doing.

I've attached some additional pics showing the switch I installed and a wiring diagram. You have to carve out some of the plastic on the inside to make room for the switch.
