It tows perfectly behind our Nissan Pathfinder. Even better than our previous hybrid did.
I've done some mods to make it better for us. A hinged shelf behind the couch that drops away for the bed. A hinged head board. Both eliminate wide the gaps superbly.
Replaced the tiny, shallow, medicine cabinet with a full width X 30 " high X 5" deep that is actually lighter than the original.Replaced all the drawers with Longer and better constructed drawers. I replaced the tip out with a full width 7" deep, 26" instead of 17" in the night stands, added a 10 " deep drawer in the blank space next to the cook top.
Shelves over the window valences. Especially practical in the bathroom for kleanex combs etc. Plus a few more little things.
Your mods sound good! Any chance you are able to post pics?

Sounds like you have really been busy making it YOURS. Good job!

We have the Flagstaff floor plan like yours. We love our camper. It is the perfect size for my husband and I and of course, the dog. Hope you have many years of fun times ahead!

We bought our first TT this year for our 45th wedding anniversary: a 2011 Rockwood Mini Lite, model 2304. It's the same as yours without the slide. It's perfect for the two of us and our 10 lb. Watchdog. Love the Murphy bed and the large bathroom. We pull it easily with our Toyota Tacoma, dinette down, bikes inside. What fun we are having! The smaller size is perfect for us. Would not want anything larger

Also looking for a murphy bed TT

Thanks, Picnic for your post. We looked at that model, along with a few more murphy bed TT's. It was between yours and the 2304DS or the Flagstaff twin 23fbds. I am in love with this trailer and can't wait to order one! We do have to sell our HTT first though. We cannot for the life of us find any in stock anywhere to look at. It just so happened that a dealer we visited just got one in that somone ordered so they let us look at it. Man is it huge inside with the double slides! We are spoiled with our 23ikss Hybrid Roo with double slides, so it's hard not having that space. The bathroom is much better also.

I do have a question for you though. What do you do if one of you want to go to bed and the other wants to sit on the couch and watch a little TV or read? This is my husbands only concern. How comfortable is the U dinette to sit and watch tv on? And if you have tried to sleep on it, how is it? Also, how effecient are the reading lights (if there are any) over/near the bed. We use our a lot that are over out sofa in our HTT.

Thanks, I really enjoyed your post! I'm chomping at the bit to find one of these to look at, so I can choose interior colors! What did you get? Maple or the darker wood?

The original curtain at the foot of the Murphy Bed doesn't do a very good job of blocking light from the rest of the room, ... we replaced that with "room darkening" curtains from WM, ....... my wife sewed them together to make one long unit and and also sewed on the band at the top that slides in the channel, ..... I bought a new strip of that band and left the original curtain in tac, so that if we ever change tt, we'll keep the one she made and the original will be reinstalled,..... works great for napping on the sofa also, pull it across and very private,

we replaced the 24" tv with a 32",...... DW sits under the tv and with a mirror in the foot of the MB, my wife can keep up with whats on tv, if there's something that really interest her she will go to the sofa to continue watching,...... I also ran an audio wire for headphones over to my side so that I can listen to the tv without disturbing her if she is sleeping or even during the day it prevents the tv volume from being a bother in the rest of the trailer, .... I've actually got an audio wire all the way to the sofa, with small speakers there we can still hear the tv without it having to be loud enough for the neighbors to hear,..... things like that is what I mean about tweaking our trailer and making it comfortable just for the two of us,.......

up-sized tv, 24 to 32", post #1 ------ upsized tv, 24" to 32"

below the message window you'll see "go advanced", click that and you will get more options across the top and a larger window...... when you are ready to insert the photos, click the "paper clip" icon, then you'll have the option to choose the photos, .......after choosing your photos, click "upload",...... when the upload is finished you can see the links(not the photos themselves) to the photos a few lines below the message window,.... when you see those, then you know everything is finished and ready to submit,
