We got our Flagstaff 25BHS in May and we have camped in it 7 times this summer (2 adults, a 16 year old and a 13 year old). There is plenty of room. We fold our 2" foam topper and pillows in the murphy bed with no problem. A lot more storage than competitors campers. It is easy to tow with my 2009 Suburban.

I am not happy with the wobbly dinning table. Beverages seem to get split if someone bumps the table.

Also, I don't like the fact that most of the outdoor storage hatches open to the inside of the camper. Bugs easily get in and the cool air from the A/C gets out when they are open. The pass-through storage under the couch is very short as well.

I changed the toilet after the first camping trip to a Thetford Aqua-Magic Style II with a china bowl. Great upgrade for $200.

Overall, we are happy with it, just some minor things we have issues with.

Thanks for the info about the toilet. We want to change ours too, got a couple months now to do it. We agree....just a few things that could have been made better.
Happy camping

Hi! Looking at this trailer as well. Just curious what everyone is using to tow it and their experiences towing it?

I originally ordered an elongated bowl version, but if you elongate forward, it elongates backwards and there was not enough room to the wall. I ordered an "open front" seat to allow more room for the "junk". I also added an Ecocamel handheld showerhead to replace the original. It is great for about $40. It works well even with the water pump.

I recommend the Centerline TS hitch for whatever vehicle you are using. I had an Equal-I-zer on my previous camper and it made way too much noise, even with the added nylon pads. The technology is much improved on the Centerline TS.

We have a 2015 2504S for a year now and have made a few changes.

Yes you can fit a foam topper on the mattress with no problem. We have a 2" gel foam topper along with a fitted mattress pad ordered from Amazon. Adding them has made a world of difference. The pillows are stored on one of the bunks during the day.

We did upgrade to an Insignia 32" TV from Best Buy. It is just about the same size as the opening. When the TV is "locked" into place on the TV mount, it sticks out about an inch or so from the opening so it isn't an issue. I did however have to move the TV mount up a few inches to center the TV within the opening. Without doing that the TV sits too low. On top of that, I installed an Insignia sound bar above the TV fastened to the ledge of the counter top at the foot of the top bunk. The length is a perfect fit. I did this since the iRV 33 AM/FM/CD/DVD/MP3/MP4 is defective.

Also, the dining table was shored up with two vertical 1"x3"s bolted to the top and bottom metal frame with angle iron support on both ends of the table fastened to the 1"x3"'s and the table top. Chances are we will never have to use the table for a bed so it is feasible for us. It did take care of the wobble by about 90%.

Lastly, I do remember seeing somewhere complaints about the dining table area cushions. The padding used is not supportive and is very uncomfortable if you sit on them for a period of time. We fixed that by having the cushions re-padded with a more dense foam at a furniture shop in York, PA. A little expensive but worth it.

Have a good day.

Sheet sizes?

Hi, new here. We just ordered a 2017 2504S. It is a big step up for us as our previous trailer was a ProLite Mini 13 (so around 11'). I was wondering about the size of the bed - does it take a standard queen size sheet? Also, do you put sheets on the bunks or just use a sleeping bag?

Thanks!

Regular size sheets and we put twin sheets on our bunk beds.

We have a 2" foam topper & a cushy mattress pad. Regular queen sheets work fine. We fold up the bed with the pillows strapped on the bed. Love the Murphy bed!

For the bunks, we use regular fitted twin sheets held in place with suspender-type straps bought at bed bath & beyond. Putting the fitted sheets on is MUCH easier if you pull the mattress off the bunks first! We keep the fitted sheets on all the time for appearance & keeping them clean. Our granddaughter is who usually sleeps on them & she sleeps in her sleeping bag but we have the top sheets for anybody else.

We store the ladder with the hooks facing up & around the mattress on the top bunk for travel.

The tv size works fine for us.
