RockStaff 2104s/21DS Owners Thread

This forum is pretty light on these models so just hopefully bringing us together in one thread similar to others.

I just made the switch from a Jayco 171BH Micro to a Flagstaff 21DS. Could not be happier, however, there are way more active forum users on the Jayco site (probably for good reason, yikes!). So, hopefully us small trailer folks can get to know each other, I have made many friends through the Jayco forum!

We are always looking at other new trailers to see if there is any better for us but the 2104 has remained unbeatable. For it's size it is amazingly roomy inside and the L kitchen is really attractive. We have a limited storage space so this size trailer is perfect. Ours has had a lot of use so I hope you enjoy yours as much.

That is so great to hear! What is some of you “can’t live without” mods on your 2104? It is so tricked out I am no sure what I need to actually do. We are putting in a better faucet and battery, but beyond that…

We love our 2021 2014s trailer. I've done a lot to it but I would start with this:


1. Check all water connections to make sure they're tight. Don't ask me how I know this. Also check all cabinet hardware, hinges, screws, etc. for tightness.
2. Look under on the frame. My master circuit breakers were mounted there with no weather protection. I enclosed them in water-proof boxes.
3. Get a piece of foam to sit between the right hand drawer under the dinette and the kitchen base cabinet when the slide is in. In the event it pops open when traveling this will keep it from getting marred. Again, don't ask.
4. The foam in our dinette cushions collapsed when sitting on it. Replace with stiffer foam from Foam Factory.
5. Replace the shower head with one that as an on/off switch to easily turn off the water between soaping and rinsing. Saves water.


These are the first things I did. There are 1000s more you can find on this forum and others. Enjoy.

It's hard to pick a favorite mod, they have all made a big difference. I agree with above, the foam in the dinette needs to go. We really love the lights in the cabinets. The dimmers are nice too. I would recommend getting the battery monitor soon, I find it very helpful to know what going on there since we boondock all the time. Get a solar panel if you don't have one, I despise listening to generators, only used mine a couple times in the last 6 years. Between my thread and Tundra with the 2109 there are endless mod ideas!

Doing the foam! Thank you. Rest of those seem to be taken care of in the 2023 update, like that drawer in the slide misses hitting anything if it opens. Going to get latches to keep all drawers and cabinets shut in transit.

Oh! Motion lights in cabinets over the dinette is a must. Agreed, mods for life.

Ordered my 2104 the beginning of December, upgrading from a GeoPro 19FBS. Dealer figures an April delivery. Cant wait!

Made all the difference for us, barely longer and just a wack amount of space.
