Trading a MicroLite 21FBRS on a MicroLite 25DS

Well my wife and I bought our first camper last Memorial Day weekend, a MicroLite 21FBRS. While we both really like it, it has a few drawbacks. So we are trading this weekend for a MicroLite 25DS. It has a tub instead of a shower pan so hopefully no more water in the floor. It also has a closet in the bathroom for more clothing storage. Finally it has a dinette so we don't have to pull the table out and put it away. Although most of the time we eat outside anyway.
But this year we hope to start taking longer trips and the extra space will be nice.

Congrats! It has an open layout similar to the 21FBRS. It should offer similar benefits with a little more space . . . just be sure the shower curtain stays inside the tub . . . .

We too just purchased a 25ds and are excited to try it out It was a toss up between the 21fbrs and this one and I think we made the right decision...

We love our 25DS. The two entry doors sold me as well as the larger bath.

Love our 25DS. Wished they had added blinds instead of just curtains. I did put them up after we purchased it. Thermostat is in an odd place. It's very hard to get to and they should have been placed in a different location.
I'm wanting to add shelves to the closet in bathroom but just can't get DH to do it yet.

I think we have blinds in ours. Will be picking up from the dealer this week. The curtains I saw in the 21FBRS if I remember correctly.

I am planning on upgrading the Tstat and mounting it out on the wall by the fridge.

PT Lady,
We had looked at so many campers the day that we bought ours I thought it had blinds but was surprised when husband brought it home. I put blinds up ever evening for a week after I got off work in a HOT camper. Hope you love yours as much as we love ours. Happy Camping!

BlackRock,

Post some pics after you upgrade your thermostat. Would love to move ours. It's just in a bad location, at least that's what I think.

Thanks NKareng:
We have aluminum blinds in the bathroom and over the kitchen sink.

Pleated shades over the rest of the windows. Ours is a 2014. What year is yours?
