2013 2109 MiniLite

I got my 2109S in March. I wanted a smallish TT [under 22' ] with no dinette and after much online searching, this floorplan was just what I was looking for. Even though I have 5 RV dealers in my area, seems they don't like to stock smaller travel trailers and they don't have Rockwoods.

So I had to drive 50 miles away to Ruff's RV in Euclid, OH. Their service department has handled warranty work without a hassle. Warranty issues:

1. slide shear pin broke--fixed

2. Door was very hard to close...you had to slam it. They replaced the whole door, same problem, but worse, so they put my old door back in, saying that's all they could do. That's when I noticed, with the help of a speed square, that the bottom of the door frame was 1/8" out of square, causing the door to hit the door frame. So they took door and frame out.....squared up the body opening....replaced door...and voila, it closes great....no slamming.

3. Whenever I would turn on an overhead light, the TV reception would FREEZE, not skip, but freeze. Dealer contacted FR and they said they were having this problem and we needed to upgrade to LED...personally I couldn't understand this, cause there was already LED in the trailer!!! But anyway they installed completely different LED light units....won't know if that fixed the problem until Spring....

Have towed about 15 times this summer [longest trip was 400 miles round trip] and it tracks well....don't even know it's behind me. Planning to haul it to Florida in Jan and Feb, 1900+ miles round trip.

Would I buy another 2109S....yes. I agree that most RVs are a work-in-progress and some tweaking is always needed. And from a woman's standpoint...there is never enough storage.

One of my most proud modifications is the small cupboard by the entry door, under the tall wardrobe. Inside, it is a small, triangle cupboard/cubby. I hadn't a clue what anyone would or could put in it, so I took the door off and that is where I keep my dog's water bowl, leash and poop bags!!! No more spilled water bowls!!

Is there anything we should look for, ask for or have demonstrated at the dealer when we pick it up?

Have the dealer run all appliances, have them run water (city and fresh water tank) If it moves have them show you how it works. Take pictures of PDI if you have access to a video camera take a video of the PDI. Will come in handy when you get home and want to use the trailer. If you forget how it is done just watch the video.

2109S mini lite

On the PDI, have them set up the television, and have all the components operating. Make sure you have ALL the wires, and the ones behind the panel, in the wall under the television, are connected correctly. Record this whole procedure for your own sanity. Have them also check that there is a good glob of sealant around the antenna wire, where it goes thru the roof. Mine was minimal , and it leaked. Check also that the gasket on the slide is secured completely. When our slide was closed we could see daylight at the bottom, at the forward corner. We had one kitchen drawer that was installed wrong. The area around the shower, where the wall joins the shower pan had to be re-sealed. Have them operate all the water faucets in the trailer. Ours had construction junk in them, hence we had little to no water pressure. They will have to take off the aerator on the end of the faucet, so the junk can flow out of the system.

Other than those few squawks, we do enjoy our 2109S, very much.

Thank you for all of the replies. We are charging our video camera and have a list of items to go over during the PDI.
