space. There is no way two adults could sleep there, and the trailer is advertised as sleeping 4.

And the same with the 23 ft. Rockwood. The one that has a u-shaped dinette. You cannot configure the cushions to make a flat bed area.

You could make all kinds of modifications to fix the factory's poor fit and finish. But then it cost you extra. The product should be built with a little more pride to begin with is what I am saying.

Not looking like we will be buying a new trailer very soon if this what is out there for new trailers.

Very disappointed.

The cushions most certainly make a flat bed. The corner triangle shaped cushions come off.

Also, the 2109 has the space behind the couch for the table to store.
The 2109 would be better suited to a couples trailer, or a couple and 2 small children.
If you want a well thought out trailer, look at the 2304s, we love it.

2304s

We looked at one of those too, it has a murphy bed. And when pulled out for sleeping there are two metal brackets on sides of wardrobes that you can hit your head on. Nothing is really complete about these trailers.

Please post some pictures of the Sunline. I have never seen one. It must be very nice. I'm sorry you are disappointed with the Mini Lites. What works for some people doesn't work for others. Good luck on your search. I hope you can find something that lives up to your expectations.

If you are referring to the plates that the locking pins connect to, you are being overly critical.
You are more likely to hit your head on the corner of the wardrobe. You would need to try very hard to hit your head on that.
If you leap sideways out of bed in a panic, perhaps...
You may never be happy with a trailer. There are logical concessions to be made with any trailer. Rockwood gives incredible floor plan flexibility. If 2 plates spoil your RV experience, I don't know what advice to give you. I guess I am a risk taker. Knowing that I could be injured by rogue, rounded metal plates!

I have been on the road and was unable to reply to your questions. I hope your experience with WANA was as good as mine. We love our 2109S and feel the quality and layout was what we wanted. Every trailer layout can be better but we like ours. I hope you enjoy yours as well.

I agree with you we like ours to and we had trouble with the trim but it was my fault I put a couple of panel nails and you can't tell

Thanks for the info. We put our deposit down on a 2109s and will be picking it up in a few weeks from Wana. Can't wait to take it out.

My wife and I have a 2109S and are very happy with it. The space behind the couch is used to store the folding table and the electrical cord (which is accessed through a side hatch panel) We also store two metal folding chairs with foam seat cushions for dinner guests, small thrash can, wine and my single barrel bourbon.
I agree that this is a TT that is best for couples. It fits our needs perfect!..One just has to define ones needs (not wants) and then research a lot. There is a wealth of info on manufacturers websites.

We got a 2109S because it was the biggest RV that my Ford Ranger 4.0 could pull, and the dealer quote was great. We are empty nesters, so the sleeping arrangements are fine for us. The couch issue doesn't matter. We did have many issues that warranty would have probably covered, but we bought our unit from a distant dealer, which greatly complicated warranty repairs. The roof leaked, the joints in the cabinet doors broke loose, storage door latch fit bad, black & gray water indicators erroneous, battery failed in 6 months, counter molding fit bad, microwave could not be turned off, stereo intermittent, a couple of wood work joints broke open. With all that, we love our unit. I fixed some items, a local dealer fixed some. Some things I live with. We would buy another Rockwood, but would wary about warranty issues and dealer selections. We went to a show recently, and the dealer was unable to get the Murphy bed to lift up. Embarrassing for him! In 4 years we may get a 5th wheel and a F150. Till then we love our little trailer. First trip is this weekend, with 9 trips scheduled so far this season.

Why would you even keep it?

OMG. And, you kept it with all these things that went wrong?

We pay for something new, we expect it to be in darn near perfect condition.
