I looked at the 2504S but I didn't need the bunk beds, I went with the 2504KS instead. The bed is fixed, it has a front window, the couch is in the slide with the kitchen and pantry, and that's opposite of the dinette and fridge. It has more pass through storage and a lot more storage in the bathroom. It's just me and the wife and our 2 dogs. We really like the front window, it lets a lot of natural light in.

What do you have for a hitch set up and what are your realistic tongue and trailer weights (when loaded)?

We have a 2016 2504s and just love it. Mods so far are upgrade to 3 batteries in the front, made the little wall to get to the winterizing valves easier to remove, sealed the kitchen sink and tub better. Also put in a digital voltmeter in the control panel. Replaced the 24 inch tv with 32 inch, much better viewing. I don't use a WDH, seems pretty stable with the truck now. I have a anti sway bar that I am in the prosses of installing. On the way home from the dealership we weighed the truck and trailer. Weighed within about 50 pounds of what the yellow sticker said. My young weight probably went up about 75 pounds or so because of the extra batteries. Been camping 3 times, once in the yard, two times at local state parks. The grandkids love the bunks. Ours are 30 inches wide. Jay

MiniLite 2504s and dinette table stabilizing

Hello. Here in eastern Iowa, we just did our first night of camping in the 2016 season.

We bought our 2504S in August, 2014 and have really enjoyed the space and floor plan. The pull down Murphy bed was and remains a real plus for my wife and I. The dealer experience was a big disappointment and the unit came with a crumpled person entry door bad enough that the factory had to send a new one. We would recommend it.

--------

Also there have been many discussions of the tables. Ours came with poor quality "card table" legs and it was very unstable and the legs were a big problem getting in and out.

We bought the snap leg set and replaced the others ourselves. It was still pretty wobbly from side to side. Last season I tried some threaded rod braces to try to steady it, but wasn't successful.

At the end of the season I took two 2x4 wood pieces and carefully trimmed to lengths that would fit firmly into the top channel and sit on top of the bottom horizontal foot metal. If I did things right, there should be a photo attached that shows it.

It really did well last night. Very steady.

I only put them on the sink side to keep open the maximum amount of space for the people sitting on the back side of the dinette.

Best wishes and happy camping.

Dale

Dale - Did your table legs look like these?

27 5" Folding Table Leg Cream Tan Color RV camper Heng's HG FL275 | eBay

My popup had these and we really didn't have any issues with the table (for 20 yrs!). Very easy to fold up the legs to put the table down.

I've seriously thought about replacing my crappy FR legs with a set of these. Only difference I was worried about is that the FR table is much heavier than my popup table was.

MiniLite 2504s and dinette table stabilizing

Hi Rockfordroo, yes, they did look like that as it first came from the factory.

Our issue was that we would have to crawl over the seat in order to sit on the far side next to the window. The snap up legs remove that problem.

Heading back out for our third nite at the campground. Yeah!

Thanks. Not sure what I'll do. It's sturdy enough, just a PITA to fold down when necessary. Some folks have gone the post route, but others have said that's unstable, too. What to do? What to do?

Leaking Slide when Traveling

Hi all 2504s Owners,

We have our 2015.5 2504s into our dealer four times to resolve the water infiltration from under our slide which only occurs when driving with wet pavement. Has anyone else experienced this and have you been able to get it fixed?

Thanks in advance!!!
