Rockwood premier 2514g upgrade/accessory suggestions

Our family just purchased a 2014 Rockwood 2514g, and can not wait for spring to try it out! The camper is outfitted very well, and we are really happy with it. We are looking for input from other 2514g owners about suggested "must have" accessories, tips or tricks about the camper, or just any suggestions you may have to get us ready for the new unit.

We are experienced campers, and have been camping in our current pop up for many years. This is our first new camper, and I figured it wouldn't hurt to pick the brain of others who are more familiar with this unit than we are.

Thanks in advance!

I just bought the same unit as you in November. Only got to use it once before going into the garage for the winter. Found out the new heater works good. Not sure where you are from, but one suggestion is that if you are using the heater, have another heater in there. The heat of course uses a lot of propane and another heather keeps the air warm in between cycles. We did not use any water because it was already winterized when I picked it up.

I bought I BAL leveler and an ADCO cover for mine as I won't have it in the garage in the nice months. I am still trying to decide on the bike rack for it. I am now leaning towards the Pro Rack set up now. I wasn't for that at first as I didn't want to have to remove the front tires, but I think it will be the easiest to load the bikes.

Good luck. We love this camper and the layout is great for us.

Like bigdog has described, used for leveling side to side so you don't have to drive onto stacked wood. Stores nicely in the front storage compartment.

Looks pretty slick! Looks a lot easier than trying to use blocks. Are they heavy duty enough for a 12 foot pop-up?

cousin eddie, these are specifically designed for single axle trailers, including TT's.
so, yes they're fine for any popup.

just Google it and you'll get more info that you can process about them.

you may want to look through popup-specific forums, like Popup Explorer or Popup Portal and do a search, if you want more real world info on them.
