Rockwood Mini Lite 2504s

Hi. We're upgrading from a Vcross Vibe 6502 to a Rockwood Mini Lite 2504s (the newest model Mini Lite). We like the Vibe but after one season of camping, we just needed more space, and we really like this floor plan. We had to upgrade our tow vehicle, as the Highlander wouldn't tow this 25'10", 4,500 lb. camper.

Has anyone else here already purchased a 2504s or considering it? What do you like about this model and the Rockwood Mini Lites in general?

I cant comment on the 2504s, however, we just took delivery of a 2014 2306. Which is very similar to the 2504s minus the slide. Comparing my trailer to my parents Outback 289re, the rockwood seems to be a much better built unit. The fit and finish is much nicer. We have only stayed in it for 3 nights so far, but it is a very nice little camper.

Congrats on the 2306 and glad to know you're enjoying it. I've been researching so many campers and I'm happy to have landed on another Forest River and worked with my same dealer.

We wanted the extra space of the 2504s as we expect our adult children to go camping with us on occasion. The dinette may not be a full bed, but i think two adults can sleep snuggly in it (it's plenty long at 85", but only 4' wide).

We take delivery in a couple of weeks. Then I can't wait until April when we can try her out. Happy camping!

We also have a 2014 rock wows 2306. We have had it almost a year now. It was the first batch of 2014s off the line. We have really enjoyed it. I think we logged about 10 trips last year and have several already planned this year. Find a good dealer in yor area because you may find some warranty work that needs to be done. If you have a power jack, you will probably have to get it sealed

I have heard of the tongue jack issues. If/when mine fails I will replace it with a better unit. We have done one weekend so far in our 2306 and I think it fits the bill perfectly for us.

I assume the 2504S has the Murphy bed in it. We have a 2304S with the murphy bed and and we just love it. It gives you so much more room when the bed is up. The murphy bed is one of the best things that can be added to a small camper in my opinion.

Yes, the Mini Lite 2504s has the Murphy bed. I agree that it is a nice option to open up the floor plan and give us flexibility for daytime use. With the bed up and the slide out, this camper feels pretty spacious. I was a little concerned about the lack of exterior storage, but even with the Murphy bed, it still has a pass-through storage compartment. Not huge, but probably sufficient for our needs. Plus there is exterior storage under the rear bunk.

We are very excited to take delivery, but it will be April before we can try her out camping. Spring can't come soon enough.

Another 2014 2306 owner... Nothing but happiness for this family. 34 nights camped in '13 and no real problems.

We have the 2503s (2013) -- bought it new late in the season last year and have only had it out a couple of times -- we are planning a trip to Florida this summer, that ought to be a real test! The large bathroom and shower sold us on it! And we also like the murphy bed set up, it does give you a lot more room. We don't have the power tongue jack, but we may have one installed.
