Good price sherdep. I am glad that you took the 14 inches wheels. We too got our new minilite 1809s with the 14 inches. The 13 inches ( 185 80r 13 ) are very skimpy for a trailer of this size. I hope you will love your trailer and yes check the caulking all over specially around the baggages flanges and top of entry door etc.. Very important. Good camping.

good info - thanks and good camping to you as well - dealer already made me aware of checking the caulk too - any suggestions on what caulk to use for the seals - I could ask my father but figured I have bugged him enough with the all the questions I asked about the camper

I would recommend Dicor self leveling lap sealant.

Sherdep : be careful with the standing table leaving indentations from the legs on the wood look flooring. This cushion floor is very nice ( the best looking ) but very soft to the touch. I was able to remove the indentations with a hair dryer. I noticed that even before I took possession in the dealer parking lot. We installed a small carpet to cover the legs and it works.

I was actually thinking 5200 would have been better - I have seen the GE Silicone II and that works but not that great - I bet the Dicor Lap Sealent is probably similar to the 5200

thanks capucine for the advice on the floor - I looked at one trailer that had the wood look I thought it was cushiony but thought maybe it was me - I really liked the wood look better then the standard floor but am wondering if I should tell them to put the standard floor back in instead or do like you said and put a piece of carpet under the leggs like you suggested to keep it from indenting - even though I ordered it saturday the order technically isnt being faxed to Forest River till tommorow morning.

Hey Capucine - I finally got a chance to talk to my father and was asking him about what to seal the roof edges with and any other pieces that need sealing he told me the same thing mtnguy said - his exact words were - "do not use silicon because it will eventually crack and leak"
He said to use the Dicor self leveling Lap Sealant like stated above -
My father has owned a few campers and two motor homes and has alot more knowledge then I do - just figured I would let you know what he said.

Congrats on ordering your camper. I have had my 2306 since last April and have enjoyed it completely. We camped several times in it and it has been towed several thousand kilometers. I did have to upgrade from a Honda Ridgeline to a Ford F-150 because the 3.5 litre engine in the Honda just wasn't cutting it. I am sure you will enjoy yours as well. My kids have already started to ask when we can get the camper out of storage even though the temperature is -23 celcius right now. Spring can't come soon enough!

thanks scann - my 4 year old daughter keeps asking when we are getting the camper to so I understand that - good thing for me is I already have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 so I dont have to upgrade my tow vehicle.
I lived in Canada in 98 for 6 months in Gimli Manitoba - I thought I was in love with a Kanook - Loved the accent she had too - I love the word Ehh - I still say it from time to time too lol - the good ole days - Now I am in FLorida and can camp year round if I wanted to
