Question Difference Between a Mini Lite & Ultra Lite?

When we were arriving @ our campground on Monday, I met a Rockwood Ultra Lite that was leaving. It appeared to be about the same size as my 2106 Mini Lite.

Looking @ the features page on the FR site, The Ultra Lites have enclosed tanks & black water flush. The construction looks similiar.

Is there a "real" difference or mostly just a marketing name?

The Mini Lites are lighter than the Ultra-Lite models.
They're built to be towed by today smaller vehicles.

I believe if you check, they start out with thinner steel in the frame and lighter running hardware due to the lighter GVW of the mini-lites.
