Yes, our 2306 is with the tuscan cream & wood look floor. My wife picked out the cabinets and flooring. She is the interior designer! We had the oak cabinets and the standard floor in our 2104 & really like how the tuscan and wood floor go together.

BTW, I've noticed that FR provides an option for the murphy bed or queen on several models, including your 2306. However on the 2304 there isn't such an option.

Wow , that makes sense and without the bunks like the 2306 you get the bigger bath. I would suspect you saved significant weight as well? Very smart conversion.

I too purchased my Rockwood form RV Wholesalers and very pleased I did so.

Best regards, and safe camping

Got it home today and as promised here are the pics - one thing they did change was where the TV goes - it no longer is a shelf cause they put the TV mounted to the wall on a swivel bracket which is nice.

I am going to have to make some changes to my truck but that is my issue and nothing to do with the camper.

Had a few small nicks in the cabinets but overall nothing major and was very impressed with the walk thru - I can say I learned alot today and am glad they took the time to show me and allow me to ask as many questions as I wanted to.

Tropical RV is where I got it from and am very happy with the way I was treated overall - now lets see if they are the same on the service side LOL

Matt, I'm glad for you! And I know that you are going to really enjoy your new 2306. Do you have three kids to fill up the bunks?

Sherdep----

Looks GREAT!

I like the oven and cabinets surrounding it... lots of storage and the added function of the oven... Nice!

Did you get the 14" tire option???

thanks - it is the 14" wheel option with the double steps -

I thought about seeing if I could stuff a set of 15" tires under it but after putting my hand between the tire and the floor there is not enough room for 15" tires.

I am happy with the trailer with the exception of one thing - the storm window option - other then that so far so good

I don't think 15" rims will fit without 'lifting' the camper. I just purchased 14"rims and tires that are supposedly 26.6 inches high. I think this will even require a lift for this combo.

When you have time, would you mind measuring the distance from the top of your tire to the wheel well liner in the camper??? It looks to be about 1.5" based on my 'guestimate' I would like to see what the the factory provides for tire clearance.

BTW -- I purchased the lift for the mini lite. (Flagstaff) Should be the same part # for your camper also. It provides 2.75" lift according to the factory rep. It looks like an easy install with some help from a friend.


enjoy the new camper!

The tow rig and camper look like a good match!

15" wont fit without a lift - I could barely put my hand inbetween the tire and fender well.
sure - I'll do that tommorow after work and send you a pm with the measurement

the lift that you are going to be installing - is that because you are going from 13" tires to 14" tires? or did you already have the 14' wheel option and want to raise the camper even more - reason why I ask this is because the way my truck and trailer sit now - I need to either get another drop shank or if I could raise the camper a little more then I would just need to adjust the hitch on the shank and be better off

since I am running 35" tires and 3.92 gears the truck needs either the factory 33" tires put back on or need to go to 4.56 gears - tires would be cheaper then gears cause I would have to pay someone to do the gears - I could tear it apart but not sure on setting the gears up besides the fact I dont have a depth gauge to do it right.
