What's a 2506 fk? I've googled it and can't find one.

I found the Flagstaff. Since it's a Micro Lite, I assumed the 2506 fk would be the sister Mini Lite, but I was unable to find one.

I have the flagstaff 26FKWS and love it. I downsized from a class A. My rig has allot of counter space and storage space. I have done many mods that have made it even better. pulls straight as a string with no sway. The factory sorta rv mattress was a torture rack I replaced it with an air mattress

Hello Labcamper,

My wife and I own a 2016 Rockwood 2506S, we bought it back in March, we have it set up in a park since May and use it every weekend, so far we are very please with it, no issues to speak of.

The only complaint from my wife is that both the bed and outside kitchen sit pretty high because she's 5'2".

We like the front kitchen with the super slide which has a fairly large dinnet, one of our sons recently visited with his wife and stayed over, they both slept on the dinett when turned into a bed, with the rear bedroom it gave us privacy.

Although the bathroom it's not huge, we certainly like the shower which has plenty of room for us.

Lastly, although Forest River certainly does not use the highest quality products on that unit and probably other similar ones, the fit and finish is very good, so far nothing has broken and even though there are lots of complaints with the stereo system and the Dometic refrigerator both units on mine are working fine.

I hope this information is helpful.

We bought our 2017 2506S in April, 2016. We are currently on day 8 of our 21 day camping trek from Louisiana to Niagara Falls via Ark, MO, Ill, Ind, Kent, Ohio, Penn, and finally NY. We'll be making our way home on a more easterly route and will be spending several consecutive days in the Smokies.
All this just to let you know that we LOVE our Mini Lite and are so pleased with our selection. Plenty of storage for our things and supplies. My husband loves the outside kitchen and we do most of our cooking out there. We have a 16 year old daughter traveling with us, so she's parked on the dinette/sleeper. We did get foam to add to both the dinette/sleeper and the bedroom mattresses to make them more comfortable. It's especially nice to be able to open the big window in the kitchen if you have a scenic view. I would highly recommend the 2506S!

We got our 2016 Rockwood 2506S in April - have only used it a few times due to our truck dying about the same time! Now it's been replaced and hopefully we'll be back on the road soon.
We really like that the bedroom is in back and is separate. That was the main reason we upgraded from a 2104. If we have someone camping with us, it gives them and us privacy. If my husband gets up early to fish, he can get ready while I'm still sleeping!!
Love the front kitchen window, too. Outside storage was a bit better in the 2104, but we are figuring out how to make the storage space work. Love the outside kitchen!
I like the idea of adding foam to the dinette if someone is using that for a bed. We did add a topper to the bed.
We are really pleased with this trailer - and look forward to many trips with it!

Agree with every comment. We have the 2016 2608WS. Love it. The extra front kitchen counter space, rear (Quiet--off the street further) bedroom, and small wardrobe slide in the bedroom sold the wife. No major problems.

Question for you 2506s owners.
Can you get one without the outdoor kitchen?
We would prefer the storage space instead.
