Ouch...on the plus side should be any day now....


What are people using for a hitch? Leaning towards the equalizer 4 point...think I'm putting too much thought into though...sure any of the equalizer or Reese setups will tow it just fine...

Got the 4 point equalizer and haven't had an issue with sway at all with my 2504s. Pulls real nice!

Also added a mattress topper that makes a big difference. Added Max Air cover to the front vent.

Only experienced a few minor issues that were covered under warranty...
1. Handle came off the flush top stove
2. One of the under dinette drawers was misaligned
3. Toilet had small leak at the floor (not sure this is totally fixed)

Only complaint is that there needs to be another electrical outlet in the kitchen area.

Hope you enjoy your 2504s as much as we do. We've been out twice this year and have about 10 more trips already planned this year.

Mine didn't come with tank flush either. Investigating adding myself. Did you do it yourself? And were is the best location on the tank to place it?

Don't plan on dry camping but who knows...
I purchased a short queen from CW, however, I think buying a residential one and cutting to fit will be a little cheaper.

Guessing the 1000/10000 should work perfect correct?

Yes, that's what the dealer set me up with. Had the same equalizer on my previous 32' tt and worked just as well.

I had the dealer install it. It was pretty reasonably priced. They placed it into the side of the black tank just past the sewer pipes.

The "torpedo" seems to work well. I ran it about five times after camping last week and seemed to clean the tank well.

Alright got the equilizer 4point setup, looks easy enough to setup.

And today I got word that the delivery to the dealer should take place the week of 6/15/15. Hopefully all goes well and it stays on schedule.

2504S

We ordered our 2015.5 2504S just after Christmas 2014 and we picked it up just after Valentines day 2015 and two weeks later we headed south for two months. Had a wonderful time and we love our new trailer. It is all we expected and more. People cannot believe how much room we have for 25 feet. We were lucky to witness our actual trailer being made in Millersburg, IN. They are happy to give you tour of the factory and it is a hands on experience. Well worth the time to do. Free too.

We have had a few issues that the dealer has been happy to remedy and all are covered by the warrantees. Be sure to purchase the extended warrantee direct from Forest River for $150. It gets you a second year and well worth the price.

We pull with a Ford Expedition and the Equalizer hitch and it is a great package.

You will enjoy your trailer as it is fantastic!!! Safe travels!!!
