We just upgraded from a mini lite etc to the 2504 S for more space. Since you've had the 2504s how are you liking it? Ours will be ready for pick up in March.

Wow, I'm jealous, the 2504S looks awesome. I have the Flagstaff 23LB (same as a 2306). I'd love to have the U dinnette and the slide. I'd probably have to upgrade my TV again. Congrats you guys.

Congratulations on your new 2504s. We haven't taken delivery of our new 2504s yet; expect to in late February if this cold weather ever breaks (spring can't come soon enough). We are so excited to get the new camper and hit the road for our favorite campgrounds here in MO.

Enjoy your new camper!

New 2014 Rockwood Mini Lite 2504s

We are so excited. Just took delivery this week of our new 2014 Mini Lite 2504s. Despite winter's grip on our region, we're loading it up and making plans for our de-winterization trip in April.

Really like the layout of this new model and all the room. Lots of interior storage and adequate outside storage.

Can't wait to start camping in the 2504s. Spring can't come soon enough.

We've only towed it home from the dealer (about 20 miles on Interstate) and then to the storage lot

The Durango has the power and ability to tow up to 7200 lbs, but I can still feel it when a big rig flies by. I think the tow/haul function of the Durango and our Equal-i-zer hitch will do the job. But the true test is when we go on our first trips in April.

We had a Vcross Vibe 6502 previously that weighed about 1200 lbs less and was about 5 feet shorter. We pulled that with a Highlander with tow capacity of 5000 lbs. I didn't really have any problems, but I could feel the sway if I got above 60 mph.

We purchased from Bill Thomas Campers in Wentzville in January. It was the only 2504s they had in stock. I see you're in O'Fallon. Did you purchase from Bill Thomas?

Ours doesn't have the night shades, but otherwise has all the bells and whistles, including the 15,000 btu air conditioner.

Did our PDI last Thursday when it was about 18 degrees so we couldn't test the water system (swore I'd never purchase another travel trailer in the winter, but here I am). Didn't check the heated mattress, but everything else seemed tip top.

We absolutely love all the space inside the 2504s. Outside storage is a little tighter than our Vibe, but we fit everything in, with plenty more storage available inside. Looking forward to our de-winterization trip to Cuiver River State Park when the weather gets better.

Hope you're enjoying your new 2504s soon!

We went to Bill Thomas the day after the RV show and they did have one 2504s on the lot and loved it (maybe the one you bought)..We have been looking online and have found some pretty good deals. Bill Thomas would not match or even come close to them so we ended up buying from Wana Rv in Indiana, custom built to what we wanted, we just have to wait 8 weeks to get it and a long drive. Upgrading form a pop up the drive will help get used to it....Hope you enjoy your first day of camping... Cuiver River will be our first stop as well!
