I have a Surveyor 23 sport, no slide! We love it but would like to get something with a slide, they just offer more room! Go for it!

Hey Skip it's hard to know what's Best I bought a 2304 last fall and found that putting up the murphy bed was like extending the slide. I only paid 11K for a fully loaded unit but had to drive from Little Rock to Albany to pick up my new 2014 unit but the upside was Niagra Falls that I had never seen before. My wife and I feel we have plenty of room inside but all the fun is on the outside any way. We park the outside grill next to the fire pit, extend the awning to create a little shade, move the TV outside and let the fun begin. I've stayed in 5 star hotels for years but there's nothing like that penthouse suite under the stars. In my opinion anything that makes you want to stay inside the camper is a downer.

Lon, maybe you can answer this one for me...my 2015 25KS (not used it yet) has only one unlabeled tv jack near the outdoor tv mount. Does it supply cable source, antenna source or what? Thanks.

220 I don't know the answer. Mine is the cable to the antenna. I've never hooked up cable. I hope you never plug the cable in 220, it might be a shocking experience Bad joke.

I hope we get the Mini Lite 2503S. I just worry about slide issues. Coming from a pop-up a slide will be so much less work and a nicer interior. I would love to hear more from owners of these (2503S/K25) and 2304. Both look so nice... thanks for all of the opinions... they are very helpful.

OK Skip, I like you had little or no experience with campers so I found the smallest camper that had some basic essentials and chose the 2304. It was new, cheap( 11K) and I could easily pull it with my chevy pu. My plan was to get in cheap and move up the food chain when the wife was on board to a large coach when I had a little experience under my belt. I needed something easy and that's exactly what I got. When reserving a camp site I never have to worry about the size or width of the site. I've been in places where the trees were so close I could never have extended a slide. When I pull over on the side of the road for one of my frequent stops(I no longer have to use the pickle jar ) I don't have to dodge the slide out when navigating to the John. Some times I break the rules and take a nap on the murphy bed while the wify drives and it's so nice in there with a clear path to the ice box. If you don't mind the extra time getting the perfect camp site, clearing the tree limbs from the top of the slide out, dealing with leaks and don't mind the crowded environment when the the slide out is slid in then get the bigger more expensive and heavy camper. But there are some draw backs and you are taking a step away from easy street.

Congrats! I am really anxious to take our 25KS out for the first time. Really great floor plan.


Best of luck!

We purchased a 2504s after several years using a mini lite without a slide. Used it one full season so far and we would never go back to a camper without a slide. Have not had issues with having enough space opening the slide on sites and we love the space it gives us. No issues with the slide (knock on wood!) up until now.
