Ultra Light 2304DS
So I have not figured out why when FR decided to redesign the 2304S and make the 2304DS they changed it from being in the Mini Lite category to the Ultra Lite category. After all the 2304DS is 25'1" and the next biggest Ultra Lite is almost 5' longer.
Was it to boost it up into a higher price range? After all, you do get better standards and more choice of options. Our local dealer told us the 2304DS is approximately $2K more than the comparable sized Mini Lites. Now we really didn't get into a big money discussion as it was our first time looking in all the Mini Lites and the 2304DS Ultra Light.
I know from contacting a Rockwood rep at the factory that things have already changed for the 2017 line. I was told that the Sapphire and Emerald packages have been discontinued. They said most of the things they put into those packages are now standard in the UL's, like the slam-latch storage doors, the entry and 'scare' lights, and the night shades. So - are they raising the MSRP to include all those?
The factory rep I contacted told me they are currently working on the 2017 brochure and that it would not be ready until at least late September. I had a couple of Rockwood dealers we visited both tell me that they attend some sort of meeting in September to be informed about the 2017 changes etc.
So I'm wondering what other changes are coming down the pipes? I did inquire if Rockwood would be releasing any new models of trailers but he did not comment on that. I'm guessing I just have to be patient and wait. Maybe we should consider going on the Rockwood factory tour when we're at the FR Rally in Goshen next week and try and find out some of this.
