First Time Owners Rockwood Mini Lite 2506s

We just bought a Rockwood Mini Lite 2506s. So far so good. The quality looks very good. We are so impressed by the layout and cannot wait to take it out next weekend for our first trip.

The only mishaps thus far had to do with the hitch refusing to let go of the ball and a smoke alarm falling loosely on the way home. Both easy fixes with a bit of grease, a screwdriver and a bit of patience.

UPDATE: We have taken our trailer out for a few camping trips this summer. We have gone to the Yosemite area, Santa Cruz and along the Delta near Stockton, Ca. Thus far, we have no complaints. This trailer is perfect for us. The front living/kitchen area is perfect. Ther have been no issues with ANYTHING - so far. The only hiccups have been self inflicted. The outdoor kitchen is awesome! We don't even cook inside. We have used the oven and it works perfectly. The counter space is amazing. The stock outdoor speakers and the stairs are our first upgrades. The speakers and the stairs that come with the RV are not exactly the best quality. Everything else, especially the layout is ORGASMIC!!!

Thanks for the info, the more I read, the more I know this is the layout for us. Will probably travel to more places to since it is smaller and more light weight than what we have now.

Let us know if you upgrade the speakers and stairs. With bluetooth speakers now, etc dont know if you would need to upgrade. We have outside speakers now and they seem to sound fine, but its camping, so dont really pay attention

You're in my old stomping grounds. If you get a chance, go a bit further north to McKericker state park in Ft. Bragg. Great campground. Big Basin is another neat place to visit as well.

McKerriker?

Hey, thanks for the information. I've never heard of that State Park before. We are dying to head further up north later in the year. There are a few state parks nearer to our home that we want to enjoy during the fall. It doesn't really get too cold here in California so we can enjoy nice parks all year, just about.

Well Spidey, I just don't like the sound quality that comes from the speakers. That is the only reason that I would want to upgrade them. They are perfectly fine for camping. Its not like I'm going to host a Doobie Brothers Concert album dance-off or anything like that. The stairs, however, we are definitely looking into upgrading those in the fall. Another thing we want to add are a couple more stabilizing jacks. I'm not sure if we need them or if I'm just not setting the four stock jacks properly. My wife thinks the coach rocks too much when we move around in it. It doesn't bother me but two more jacks are relatively inexpensive. What do you think? Do you have any experience with that kind of thing?

Sorry Ive never added extra jacks, just used the four that come with it. It also depends if you re-tighten them as well. I check mine every few days, because with trailer movement, maybe softer ground, or whatever, I notice I have to adjust mine once in while as they dont sit tight on the blocks I use. Sometimes its one jack, sometimes two. Sometimes none as well.

As for a stair upgrade it would be nice if they used the nice aluminum ones instead of the black ones that usually come with them.

Im surprised they didnt if they wanted to make it lighter.

instead of adding extra jacks, you should add BAL steadyfast or JT strong Arms. This will reduce your movement.

when we had our MicroLite, it made it rock solid

So looking for fall prices, and see the 2019s out.

So dry weight is alot heavier now it seems, the 2017/2018 they were under 5000 lbs, depending on options

Also noticed that the outside kitchen now has a grill, and no outside sink & stove. And as well upgraded the steps

Is this for all 2019, the outside kitchen is why we wanted it, the grill is useless IMO because a sink & stove would be way more useful. We have an outside kitchen now with a sink and stove, and use it constantly.

If so might have to stick to 2018 then

First time Rockwood 2506s

So far I love my tt, the layout is great, I only have two things I wish were different. 1 Tall storage area for mop and broom ( but found a folding mop).
2 The outside kitchen has a grill instead of a 2 burner stove top, which seems strange since it comes with a gas grill....


I will be camping next week with my Sister's on the Fly group in Yosemite, cannot wait. I will post any problems and or issues I find.
