I'm really surprised that they are adding a 2" accessory hitch - presumably for a bike rack or cargo-carrying platform - on a mini-light trailer.

I am pleasantly surprised as well. I've seen videos online with it and I think soe of the other members who recently took delivery of their trailer showed pictures of it so it definitely checks out..

Evidently these changes weren't all implemented at the same time. My 2109S was built in late June and I have the TPMS but not the furnace, hitch or griddle.

Looks like they missed the new swivel TV mount on the pdf. At least on our 2506S that is a change. Thanks for posting it though.

See Post #12 for the one I had put on my 2503S (also discontinued).

Post #2 is the one I had on my Roo 19.

Installing a hitch on my roo.

Noticed a new model 2205s in your pdf. I googled it and there is a layout of it but no specs. Has anyone found anymore info on it? We are thinking of buying the 2104s, we like the new L shaped counter.

Have 2017 2507S, I just added a 2" receiver at a spot which centers my aluminum HitchPacker on right center, next to the tire, but doesn't stick out.
Would Love TPMS. Installed Unbreakable front roof vent cover, original is about as strong as bubble packaging on a snack cake. Added Furion BackUp/Observation camera, REALLY like, since rear view blocked. Now have rear view. Battery cutOff switch replaced with Marine Type, Much more durable, had to replace friends on 2407? first, both out within two months of each other. Hope they plan to maybe at least option package the new solid frame aluminum swing down steps.

If you simply bolted a receiver to your bumper, you are asking for the bumper to rip off. The bumper on these light trailers is inadequate for what you are asking it to do.

You need to either weld on a beefed up receiver,

Installing a hitch on my roo.

get some Safety Struts,

or receiver that bolts to the frame.
