Just pick up our 2018 2507s

Just got our 2507s today. PDI went great and everything looks build well. One thing we did notices that it seems to sit higher then the 2017 2507s that we looked at. Not sure if they changed anything or not probably just us. Going to take it out next week can't wait.

Congratulations. The wife and I looked at the 2507s last weekend for the first time. We both like it. I like the bathroom shower over the one in the 2509s. So we are between the two models. Yes I like that it set up higher for the Rocky Mountains here. What is your dry weight of yours?

Are you travelling just the two of you? If you think you will use the bunk beds, then the 2509S is the one for you. Otherwise IMHO the 2507S with the better shower, has tons of storage. It seemed a fair bit more storage than the 2509S. But you could use the bunks for storage when not in use.

Yes it has a lot of storage. Its just the wife and i and our 120 pound chocolate lab. The shower and the bigger bathroom is what make the 2507s for me. it was the bigger outside kitchen for the wife that sold it to her.

Swa1, What is your dry weight showing for your 2507S on your camper? Storage sounds good. It will be the wife myself and are two Labs. We have Grandkids that will come along sometimes. I have to also look at the weight with my small truck. I'm hopping that the 2018 are a little liter. I see some of the 2509s are showing to be less weight now. Hope you enjoy the new TT.

Ignore dry weight; it's for suckers. Use GVWR and/or weigh it with everything in it.

We lucked out. When we went to the dealer to order one the dealer had one already in the works at the factory. It had every thing that we wanted except both maxair fans. It has the one on the bathroom and heated tanks and the prewire back up camera. It also had the interior colors we wanted. Took about four weeks to get it in. I don't know when the dealer put the order in and when they started on it at the factory. I just know that they said it would be ready in four weeks for pick up and it was.

How are you using the storage in the bathroom? The giant 3 door above the stool? It is so big I have no idea where to start

We picked our 2507s up a month ago and finally got out this past week. Overall everything is what we expected. We love the outdoor kitchen! That has already been proclaimed MINE! In the process of turning it into my wet bar
One of the first mods we had to do to it before we took it out was install 2 6volt battery system. A must for us as we do all boon-docking.

LOGHEAD, we did the same thing to ours. I had a welder weld new iron on the battery support and beef it up and now is solid. Next thing we want to do is do something with that dining table. It wobbles and is to hard to move. We wished Forest River put a better table in it.

HoundsAbounds, we just got back today from a trip that was supposed to be 4 days long but cut it short because the rain and snow. It was our first night camping in it. We used that place to put our clothes in.We figured that it would be a good place to change and have them stored in the bathroom. One thing we did not like is that there is no heater vent in the bathroom. There is only to heater vent in the whole trailer. The bathroom was very cold. We are going to see about getting a space heater for the bathroom.

We are wondering the same thing about the same area. We are using it for clothes baskets right now but I will be making some shelving for our clothes.

We picked up our brand new 2107s on May 1st and drove home in a torrential downpour. Took it right to storage facility due to rain. Next chance we got to 'play' with new trailer was this week. Couldn't believe how much crap we had set aside after emptying out our Roo while we waited for this trailer. Wasn't sure it was all going to fit it, not sure why though as the Roo was smaller.

Everything fit just fine and we have tons of room still left over! This model of trailer seems to have more than ample storage and we can't wait til we have a chance to go out camping in it!! Really happy with it so far and hope our first trip out leaves us feeling the same way!

We are looking at 2506s (rear bedroom model) and will be doing some dry camping/boondocking as well however there are water hookups where we go (just not electric). What all does the 2x 6 volt set up allow you to run and do you use any solar to keep them charged? We just need it to run the interior lights and ignitor for water heater (is it possible to run water heater off battery in these mini lines?).

Having dual 6v batteries does nothing more than extend the time you can use of 12v items.

It doesn't change that the water heater only runs on propane or shore power/generator. Of course, the propane side will use battery power to ignite the propane. NOT a big power drains.

It won't run the microwave or a/c or outlets.

We use our 2000i Honda to recharge our dual battery setup.
