Just ordered a Rockwell 2507S

We looked at larger TT but our local dealer didn't have a 2507S we were interested in. We still think this is the unit for us but it was a bit of a leap of faith in trying to put all the features together from looking at "like" models..

We have always had popup campers in the past but never camped with them as much as we hoped.

I am retired now so we took the plunge knowing we will have more time to travel.

We chose the 2507S Mini Lite because of the dual purpose of the Murphy bed area and I like a mid size length for towing. The dry weight is around 5,500# so not bad with my Ram 1500 PU.

Looks like we will get our TT late May.

Looking forward to exploring this forum. My first pre trailer purchase will be a WDH system. I am considering the Curt with the built in stabilizer. I have to check with my dealer if I should get the 6k or 8k system.

I thought it was odd someone was posting about buying a painting (Norman Rockwell) in an RV forum, and also one that I hadn't heard of
Congrats on the RV and enjoy!!!

Congrats on the order. We are in your shoes with a 2513s on order. Expected in April, but if i don't stop adding things it may never get done! Added another solar panel yesterday. Dealer said we are still on schedule. We like the 2507s, as well. Very similar layout to the 2513s.

I took a chance on the 120v refrigerator. That has a second battery inverter and solar panel. Dealer recommended this over the 3 way fridge.

I've always had the 3 way fridge so taking a chance it's a evolution. I liked the idea of having 120v when remote camping

When did they start putting 3-way fridges or 120 only fridges in MiniLites?

FR's website only shows a 2-way RV fridge as standard:
Double Door Auto Gas/Electric Large Refrigerator

And a 12v compressor fridge as an option:
12V Fridge with 190W Roof Solar Panel with 1000W Inverter

Also not understanding why you think a 120v AC fridge is a good choice for remote camping. That goes against opinions I've seen on RV forums.
