I drove out to RVW and picked ours up with my two boys. I originally had it set up to deliver, but changed my mind a week before for no other reason than I couldn't wait to get it! We camped 2 nights on the way home and had no issues at all. We have spent 2 additional nights in it since with no issues at all. Plan to go out next weekend for 2 more nights. I have had zero issues with it. I'm pretty mechanically inclined, so I may not be the first to complain about small issues that others may. The only modification I have done is to remove the water filter. I didn't like the location and the potential for a leak. It wasn't easy to access and was very poorly attached in my opinion. I had the pex tool and crimp rings already, so I just cut it out and spliced the supply line back together. I did learn of the 2nd year warranty on here and sent my paper work in the day I returned from picking it up.

I would love to see some pics when you get it.

Enjoy!

^^^^Agreed, the water filter is in an area that is not very good, and it is indeed poorly mounted. I removed it from that area, and plan to re-use it mounted outside under the frame somewhere. I'll buy some garden hose adapters so I can hook a hose to it. I had to buy the PEX crimp tool for my bypass as well, but well worth it for future work. No worries of a leak inside...too many horror stories.

FYI, for those of you wanting to add the counter top extension to your 2504S...you will need to contact Sheri in the contact information below and provide her with your trailer VIN...that will determine which parts you'll need. My 2504S was built late July/early August this year, so an earlier date probably uses different parts. You can order the parts direct from her, and yes...they accept credit card. Shipping obviously is dependent on where it's going to. I plan to order ASAP!

I would be happy to provide you with the pricing for the parts needed to add the countertop extension.

The countertop extension is part# 10-16960A$16.52 each.
Countertop extension leg is part# 10-853$8.48 each
Bracket - table mount is part# 10-855$2.40 each - you would need 2.
Bracket - wall mount is part# 10-12444A$2.14 each - you would need 2.
These are special order countertops, so it would take approximately 2 weeks for us to receive the item in before we could ship out to you.


Thanks,

My water filter relocation pictures. First picture is factory installation. Second picture is water filter removed and re using the existing PEX blue line. Third picture shows factory water filter mounting bracket on door frame. Fourth picture shows closed door holding filter in place...no drilling, just hold in place and close the door...done.

That's exactly how I bypassed mine, other than using it on the exterior. Great idea, I'll have to dig mine out of storage and use it that way.

I got my new 2504s delivered on sept tenth. It has the black trim on white walls. I have the black tank flush on the rear. There are four storage hatches on the drivers side and two on the passenger on the front. The storage is not pass through under the Murphy bed. I was looking at it this evening and the driver side is a single big opening and it looks like they split the passenger side into two smaller openings due to the location of the awning. The underside of the couch is a pull out drawer, which is blocking it from being a pass through. The vertical storage door on the back of the wardrobe next to the dinette is into a separate closet and not into the wardrobe. I used it to store the camp chairs.

We got the counter top extension, and it was well worth the money. We usually put it out when doing dishes, and then put it away In The under couch drawer.

Our bathroom layout does not match what is shown on the rockwood website. The toilet is between the sink and the tub on the back wall.

The bunks are small, but I was able to squeeze my 6'3" 280 pound self into it with my three year old son to read him his bed time stories. It was a tight fit for me but he loved it.

We camped in the mountains for nine nights with it right after we got it. We had hoped to do a weekend pre tip camping with it before we went, but it showed up a little later then expected. Our first two nights were -4' Celsius and windy and the furnace had to run almost none stop. But we stayed toasty warm. I absolutely love this camper.

We have been having one issue with it. The slide seal isn't that great. When I pulled it home front the dealer it was raining and there was a puddle of water on the floor when I got home. They picked it up and adjusted it and then returned it the next day. Then the first night we were camping we had mice. I trapped two in the garbage can at three am. Upon investigation there is a one inch hole at the back bottom of the slide seal. We put some steel wool in the hole and were mouse free for the rest of the trip. It will go beck next week for seal repair and adjustments.

I will try to post some pics in the next couple of days.

Looks like they have made a lot of changes, my unit has a pass thru in the front and no storage under the couch, looking at your pictures my tv unit goes all the way to ceiling and bathroom has tub to the left sink in the middle toilet to the right. We do love ours for sure, have been out several times this year and plan our last one at the end of Oct. If I could make one change it would be to have an opening from the outside in the slide out. Enjoy your unit.

Thanks for the pictures of that new layout. I saw the same thing a week ago at local dealer. I believe if you measure the width of the bunks you will find they are a couple inches wider than the previous version which explains the new bathroom layout. also I really like the cut down tv wall, it lets more lite from the upper bunk window. Does yours have the enclosed underbelly? I thought this was standard on mini lites but the one I saw didn't have it. Did you order it with the options you wanted and did it come in correctly?
thanks,
craig
