we also bought a 2015 2504S because of the extra space created by the slide and can easily sleep 6 plus plenty of storage. made a couple mods. 1. mounted "surge protector" in storage bay 2. added electric fireplace

We have a 2010 2304s Rockwood Ultralite. We love it - for non-full time camping - max time spent in one swoop was 9 nights. We know that in 5 years when we plan to go full-time we will be going to a 28-30 ft. I don't want to do the murphy bed thing every day for the rest of our on the road lives. As for TV - we started with a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 - it did ok around the area but struggled with our trip out west and also too much man handling. Just sold it and got a 2000 Ford F250. The manhandling is a thing of the past - we'll see how she does out west next season.

I was concerned about my 4.7 V8 sequoia when we went from popup to TT.
Like 53flattie, most our camping is NE GA, W NC mts AND Hunting Isl. TT weighs 4600lbs so with equip I'm about 88% tow cap. Our trip to Cherokee, NC was first mtn trip. I turned off the Overdrive and was very satisfied with towing. I do have a 4.1 axel ratio Just hope I not leading her (Toyota) to an early grave.

We love our flagstaff 23lb (sister to the 2306). Plenty of room, but we do wish at times we had a slide just to add some additional room. I don't even notice the 23lb behind me with my f150 ecoboost and even accelerating on hills is nice. Although I'm not a fan of the u dinette plus it's on the curbside. We like the view of our campsite with our camper having the dinette on the street side. Good luck with your choice and happy camping.

Hello, I joined up to research the 2504s as well. After looking (and renting) 30 footers, we think we found the perfect match for us. We want the smallest footprint with a front queen, nice dinette, bunks for the two kids, and quality construction. We're going to look at one this weekend. Any other owners care to chime in on their 2504s? Would you buy it all over again if you had the choice?

We plan to mostly weekend at national forests and parks.

I'm not worried about weight, we have a F250. But overall height is important as we have a 31x12 hard canopy that is just over 10' in height to the center cross bars where the AC until clear- most TT's are taller than 10'.

Also, can anyone with a 2504 measure to the height of the top of the RV roof (not the AC?)

Ours is 10" - 6" to the top of the AC. I can measure the unit itself when I get home if no one else chimes in.

Thanks Bob. The website says 9' 9" exterior height. Maybe that's not including the A/C. I wonder if a low profile AC unit can be substituted or swapped in? Getting under that hard canopy would be a HUGE bonus for us- free storage and better weather protection. Plus it's close to my house.

My DW would pick the 2504s for the prep area in the kitchen. I would too. The space for a rainy day is nice too. Our MH did not have a slide (too old a 1989) so we wanted a slide to give that room also.

Is the spacing between the bunks the same on both models? Noticed that there is a 4" width difference.
