We found out 1 week before it was scheduled to come off line and was provided the VIN number. Our order was put in on January the 22nd and we took possession of the camper on March 23rd.

Ha I am not sure why my pictures posted upside down and would not let me fix them! Next time I'll just let my wife do it. The TV mount is great all you have to do is on the wire push up on the bar slide off in lay inside on the couch. I'm trying to think of a joke about leaving it turned on on the side of my camper while driving but I'm just drawing a blank!

I'll find myself behind an SUV with a tv playing... and try to figure out what they're watching. Bad, I know...

From your pictures, it looks like FR made a change on the aluminum wheels for the 2014's. I like the new sportier look.

Putting us back to the correct thread... Our 2306 on order is identical to yours, with the exception of the power tongue jack. Yours had the 15K a/c too, correct? That was the one I was kinda wondering about as far as weight.

Yes, I believe ours is a 15 ac and weighed in at 3853 which is about 200 lbs more tan the base weight.

So coming in at 3853lbs... With a GVWR of 4718lbs... That leaves you with 865lbs of "stuff", correct?... And around 765lbs once you factor in propane and battery? Not a big deal for us cause we pack very light... But that doesn't seem like much "stuff".
And one more question... Is the 23'-6" from bumper to tip of tongue or the size of the camper? Not asking you to measure it up... Just thought you might have already asked/looked.

Can you tell I'm anxious to get ours? Lol. I actually haven't stepped inside a 2306. We were dead set on a Keystone 238ML... But didn't like that it didn't have many of the little bells and whistles our forest river had... So a week later she (the wife) called me from a business trip... She was in a 2306 and said "this is the one". Yadda yadda yadda... We ordered one the same day.

I had the 238ML bookmarked as a favorite for probably a year. When we got serious, we looked at some more models and the 2306 was listed as a "possibility". Then we went and stood in a Passport. And then stood in a Rockwood/Flagstaff. The construction superior, and then the exterior features were what sold us. We bought it that day.

But we had not seen the 2306 until we stood in our own. Ordered it without seeing it. We had only stood in the 2109S.

Looks great. Hope you have a flawless weekend. We were hoping to have ours for the Penn State spring Blue-White game on the 20th... That hope is fading fast.
