I just purchased a 2502s from RV Wholsalers in lakewood, OH. I am very happy with the build quality and the dealer. I purchased the slide awning and two roof vent covers both of which I highly recommend keeping debris out of the camper and of the slide roof.
I drive a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac with a 4.6 liter V8 and it pulls this puppy fine. The frontal area on the Rockwoods is large and you will "feel" the trailer in a headwind. Overall it handles well. I am not sure where you live but a V6 maybe challenged if you pull a lot in hilly terrain and in windy conditions. At 3900 lb empty and looking at say an average weight of gear and supplies (propane, battery, some gray and black water 2-3 gallons each and your personal gear) at 600 lbs you are looking at 4500 without water in the fresh water tank.
I have the manual awning so I can't offer a comment but I decided that it was not a problem so I didn't upgrade.
I did a lot of shopping and I am very pleased with the Rockwood.
