New Flagstaff V-Lite 21 WRS Owner

We picked up our new trailer a couple weeks ago. After looking at a lot of units we liked this one the best. The wife and I have been camping and fishing all over Florida for the last 15 years. We have spent many nights on a boat or in a tent and figured it was time to stop roughing it. The trailer has proven to be super comfortable and we have spent a couple of nights in it parked in the driveway to get familiar with the systems.

We currently have reservations for Silver River State Park in a couple weeks followed by Fort Desoto and are booked for a week at St. Andrews State Park in October. We also have a week booked for March of next year at Rainbow Springs.

I look forward to meeting some of you around Florida and swapping stories on the forums.

Welcome to the forum!

Sounds like you have made a good choice with the Flagstaff V-Lite. Tent camping is fun but camping in a really nice trailer is even better. Good idea of doing a couple of nights of driveway camping to get to know your trailer before hitting the road.

Be sure to post any questions you may have. Our members have a wide range of experience to share.


Safe travels,
Terier

We just took our 21 v-lite out for the second time. Still trying to learn the systems ourselves. Had a blast. Hope you will enjoy yours as much as we will. Do you know how to get the stablizers up if you have no power, I could not remember or figure it out?

You should have a manual crank that allows you to crank up the stabilizers. It has an end on it the looks like a tube with a slot cut in the middle. The part that cranks it up and down is the end of a rod with a pin through it. Hope that helps.

Thanks, I saw that extender, but couldn't remember what it was for. Too long of a time from the purchase to actually get it out. So far the only issue we've had is the shower head. I bought a Oxogenetics shower to replace it ( I wanted one on my last TT). Again, thanks and hope you enjoy your new unit.

Congrats on the new Vlite!

We picked up our 21wrs in March and will take our maiden voyage next weekend. We love everything about it so far! We did replace the showerhead. Please keep us posted!

We just arrived home after our "maiden voyage" with our 2012 V Lite 30 FKSS. We hadn't trailered since the 1980s when our children were young...they are all adults now and our first stop was to visit two of our sons and their families in north Texas. On this trip we camped in Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, southern California, mid-California, northern California, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Nebraska, and Iowa. I am not a camper...my husband is...but I AM an RVer and LOVE it!!!! We researched trailers for awhile, and my husband decided on the V Lite, and I picked the front kitchen model. What a great way to see the country! Comfortable for the longer stays, and still completely useable with the slides in for quick lunch stops! The length was a bit scary...we learned a 30' trailer does not track or back quite the same as a 22' trailer, but the V Lite was outstanding! Our 2011 Ram 1500 Hemi pulled her through high deserts, high desert mountain ranges, the Rocky Mountains, the Olympia Mountains, the Cascade Mountains and we never had to pull over and stop once. Also, almost every "rig improvement" suggested by our various neighbors to make the rig more comfortable was already supplied by Forest River in the rig....see through slides in the screen doors, door arms to hold the upper cabinets with raise doors open, shelf lips for items in the vanity and kitchen cabinets, battery charge indicator, extension on the gutters to minimize black streaks after a rain....all included. The one thing that we found we DO need to get is a 15" square pizza stone for the oven....put on the very bottom shelf of the oven, it prevents the overcooked bottom/undercooked top that I was experiencing due to the shallowness of the oven. All in all, I think you are going to LOVE your V Lite! Congratulations and enjoy your travels!!!!!!
