I made it out to check the weight on my trailer and it was a little higher than I remembered....dry weight was 3,987, cargo limit of 843 for a total of 4,820. Of course part of the total will be tongue weight so that brings the gross weight down for the 2,200 lb each axles. Hope this helps.

We love our 2104s. As others have suggested the shower is a little small and you need to add splash guards. Its a bit cramped at night but we have slept 5 in it, weather was nice so we stayed outside most of the time. Used a inflatable twin mattress. my main complaint is the storage and lack of counter space. The cabinets above the slide out need 5 doors instead of the 3 thats on it. Its a great little camper for short trips not sure how we would like it for long trips lasting weeks at a time.

sad thing is when you fill the water tank roughly 300lbs of your 843lbs is used up. not much left over for cargo

Considering the average user loads @ 1000# yes that is sad.
What is even worse is people don't realize it and over load there unit then when they have axle and tire problems they blame forest river.

i am 6-4, 250 lbs and I can shower in the 2109s. Its tight, the shower curtain may get a little Grabby and as we all know, never drop the soap. With that said, adding splash guards, an actual shower liner and putting a small basket in the shower corner go a long way towards fixing this. Also, replace the shower head, you will be glad you did.

For storage... I don't have the murphy bed, nor do i want it. I have plenty of storage in the pass through. In reality, we have very little stored above the bed or above the sofa. Last year at a float trip a storm came up. we had 8 people and 2 dogs comfortably in the trailer hanging out. (3 on the sofa, 3 on the bed, 1 cooking and another in a camp chair by the door. Dogs on the floor)

our yellow sticker says 3820. I have the oven, the slide topper, the power jack. I don't the new package that comes in brown.. but i have everything else. Our 21fbrs is a 2015 in title only and is exactly the same as the 2109s.

if you want additional info, I will try my best to answer any specifics you have.

We've got the murphy bed in our Rockwood. The previous owner added diamond-plated pickup truck toolbox behind the hitch, just in front of the diamond plate rock-guard.

While it doesn't entirely compensate for the lost pass-through storage, it adds a great deal of storage for outside-stuff (hoses, wheel chocks, batteries, etc). Aesthetically, it looks like it came front the factory that way. It's lock-able and I think...a very functional modification.

I was grateful for the creativity and work done by the previous owner.
