Used 2013 2306 - anything to look for?

Hi All -

Wife and I are going to look at a used 2013 Mini-lite 2306 today. Is there anything specific I should look for when considering this used TT? We have 2 small boys and the layout seems perfect. We have looked at a bunch of trailers and generally buy used vehicles, so I am not too fearful. This will be our first trailer and any help or direction would be great.

Thanks!

Hello there we just purchased a 2306 a few days ago. I had done months of research on these and had came up with a few things to consider when looking at them. We loved the layout of 2306 as well the murphy bed. Things I have read about minor problems is checking murphy bed mounts for movement where they are screwed in. thermostat may run higher temp cause radio puts off heat when on and its just beside the thermostat. floor may feel lil spongy in high traffic area for heavier people. one described a small leak coming from antenna area on roof. other than that just go though it an check for quality control that may of been rushed from manufacture. So far we love ours. Good luck

Great trailer we have the sister flagstaff micro lite 23lb. Only issue we had was that prior owner burned out the anode rod in the hot water heater.

So, it ended up that we found a brand new 2014 2306 in Ohio for less than the used locally. We are on our way home with the new trailer and are very excited to camp!

Congrats on your new trailer! While you don't need the answer now but I would had recommended checking for signs of water damage especially on an used unit.

Please do keep us updated on your first trip out, if you don't mind sharing.

We had a great trip up to Wellesley Island on the St Lawrence river. Fantastic time. Next weekend off to Chenango state park in Binghamton!

Great to hear! Love our 2306. We had a leak in our door window, but it was just the caulking. No issues otherwise. Happy camping.

Is there special Caulk? I noticed a spot where the caulk is light but didn't know what to use...

Do you think a mattress pad would fit on the Murphy bed? We too, are looking at the 2306. And what kind of milage are you getting towing it? We have a Ford 150.

Thanks,
Andette

We have the sister trailer by flagstaff and I get 9.5 mpg with my 5.3 v8 gmc envoy Denali.

No Murphy bed in ours but we did get a mattress topper and it works great.
