Just bought a new 2011 Flagstaff Micro Lite 25DS (below dealer cost!), identical to the Rockwood Mini Lite 2502S after marathon 5 week research and help from these forums. Love the layout with kitchen out of living area, small sofa slide, walk around queen and 2 doors.
It is the model I originally wanted, but was fearful of the "tail wagging the dog" given short wheel base of my tow vehicle (low mileage 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7, v8, upgraded suspension). After much research, angst and vacillation, I went for it. My fears were laid to rest after first several tows - piece of cake with upgrades : wd, anti-sway, brake controller, performance brakes, upgraded rear sway bar and air bags, albeit only towed on flat Florida roads so far.
After our first over nighter I did have an "oh s$%t moment. After dropping off the trailer, on the way home my transmission started slipping badly and engine light came on! Research on Jeep forum gave me hope that it might only be the throttle position sensor. Sure enough, $26.00 later all fixed; and tranny past all diagnostics. What a relief!
Am keeping in on a friend's farm so can get some fresh country air when we don't have time to tow somewhere vs. just keeping in it in storage.
Am brand new to RVing and on a learning curve, but looking forward to new adventures!. Thanks again to all the great input from folks on this forum, particularly SCannon (see above).
