The "new" 2017 Mini Lite 2503S - question about Sofa

We just ordered the 2503S Maple/Winston,Wood-look floor. 6 weeks till ready, so we will be picking it up end of October. However, I am seeing some dealers show 2017 Model 2503S sofa with 3 cushions vs 2 cushions. The 2503S we saw in person had 2 cushions and we loved it. Salesperson says he is told by his rep it will be 2 cushions..but how to be sure? Hopefully no surprises when we pick up!

The New 2017 model no longer says "Sapphire pkg", it now has pkg D (not A), enclosed underbelly, solid surface kitchen mount sink.
Any one know for sure?

You'll probably just be surprised. When we were looking for ours in Jan 2015, we saw a Flagstaff version (25KS) and a Rockwood version (2503S). The Flagstaff version had a "free standing" sofa, in that it didn't have the little "tables" between the arms of the sofa and the sides. Pic 1 is the Flagstaff, pic 2 is the Rockwood. We didn't know if that was a Flagstaff vs Rockwood difference or what. So we weren't sure what we'd get when we ordered. The front of the Flagstaff sofa dropped down and there was a long plastic bin that slid out. On the Rockwood, the front of the sofa didn't drop down and there was no plastic bin. You could still get into it by raising the seating surface of the sofa. But there was a much larger "pass-thru" from the outside that was basically the space under the sofa. I actually liked the Rockwood version more, and that's what showed up, so I was a happy camper.

We also did NOT order the leather. Our Rockwood came with the style shown in Pic 2, but in cloth.

congrats on your new "best couples trailer on the market",.....we love our 2015 Micro Lite 25KS,.... maple woodwork, wood-look floor(but I've covered it with carpet), sofa w/2 cushions and tables on both sides, pull-out drawer under the sofa, ...... we fill the gap behind the sofa w/2 large tube pillows my wife made, they also give us the perfect height for a comfortable head rest when sitting on the sofa, ...... we use those same two pillows to fill the gap at the head of the bed when it's down for sleeping, using them that way actually makes the bed another 6 inches or so longer......

sometimes the waiting can be more difficult than writing the check,.... when we were looking, several times online I saw same yr. models that were different in many ways, and wondered what would we get if we ordered,..... we found our trailer on a dealers lot, ... it had just arrived that day and was exactly what we were looking for,.....we really do consider it a great "couples trailer" and every tweak and mod we do, is done with that in mind,...... always looking, but have never run across another one of either of the twins(25KS/2503S) in our travels, ...... w/that large bath and second door, I would think it would be much more popular than it apparently is, ....... if you are into "modding" these two models offer a world of possibilities that can keep you busy FOREVER,....... happy trailering...........
