The 2502 is larger but trying to find the right balance for us. Not too big and not too small.
Sigh, reading-is-fundamental. Sorry about that! I apparently don't read as carefully as I should. I saw the 1901 reference in your message and went with it.
Ok, here's the likn to the 2502s:
Looks like it is a few feet longer at 25' 8" vs. the 2109 at 21' 8". IMO, for getting into and around campgrounds- that 4' is going to be largely a non-issue.
With the 2109, I would worry about one's ability to watch TV while the other is doing kitchen stuff. With the 2502, I would worry about the TV being in the head-space of the person sitting on that side of the dinette.
We pack heavy, I definitely like the extra carrying capacity of the 2502 (1,800 pounds).
I honestly think the second entry door on the 2502 is more gimmick than actual appeal. The nice part is, you can get to the fridge and bathroom on both with the slides in while you're on the road. I'm betting that you can get to the bed with the slides in with both models if you so choose (overnight stop on the way to a destination).
The bathroom and shower vs. tub that was made is a good point. At a dealer, I'd definitely get in one and pretend to shower- paying special attention to "rinsing my nether regions" and the roominess for that; the 2502 likely wins. Same with sitting on the throne - looks like you might have a little more leg room in the 2109.
Interesting choices! Have fun shopping!
