Before you order one, go to as many dealerships as you can and look at as many different rigs as you can. Different manufacturers, all shapes, sizes, options, and configurations. By doing that you will get to know what your wants and needs really are and may start to get a feeling on what is "good quality vs bad quality"... I know you mentioned the mini lite (2511S) but why limit yourself to just that particular rig. You may find something else that checks off all the boxes…
I was looking at the floor plan for the Mini Lite (2511S). It looks like it will be very difficult if not impossible to move around and “use” it with the slide closed. (Get to the bedroom, open the refrigerator etc.) This may not be an issue for you if you do not plan to overnight at a Walmart or a similar business. Sometimes if you can get the right location in the Walmart parking lot, you could put the slide out over a grassy curb area. Some will say it is not good etiquette to put your slide out when you overnight at Walmart. For us we wanted to be able to use the rig with the slide in.
In addition, something else for you to consider is that the refrigerator is in the slide & could (notice I said could) have an impact on the slide because of its weight. Others feel free to comment on this, as I am not an expert on slides and the weight they can withstand.
I cannot comment if you can expect a good product if you order one. As previously mentioned, the quality is the quality. We have all heard the horror stories. I think if you take your time, do your research, and find what you truly want and need you will be ahead of the game. Be sure you do a very thorough PDI with the dealership before you sign on the bottom line. Get in writing with the dealership any issues to be repaired/fixed or replaced.
Just my humble opinions…
Hope this helps.
