WE have been searching for several months.. New to camping and don't really know what we'd like. It is just the two of us. Haven't found a used one that we wanted to buy yet, and it often seems like just a little more could get you a new one..
Anyway, found a 21MB Amerilite that is 1 1/2 hours away, that would be just over $11,000 out the door. I have this by email from the dealer.. We would like to go look at it over the weekend.
Anyone have experience with this unit, that could comment on quality, problems, etc...?
Also, please tell us what you think of the price. I have asked for a price from RV wholesalers to compare but haven't heard back yet.
We have a 2010 AmeriLite 25BH and like it. There's another thread that was started recently asking about quality/problems. You can read that if you'd like but in a nutshell we love ours and would buy another.

We bought one new in 2005 a 21MB LE with spare tire and it had upgraded cabinets over the bed instead of the shelf they have on most of them and the upgraded linoleum for 9,500.00. We used it for 2 years and towed it over 6,000 miles with no problem.
We travel at least 1,000 miles every year and have spent about 150-175 nights in our AmeriLite. To this point the only major problem I had was a leak around the door. I fixed the leak myself over two weekends. I did have a tire blow out, but do not consider that to be part of the trailer. I have completed many mods to include: LED lighting, LCD mounted TV, digital thermostat, replaced cooktop with an oven, replaced the shelf over the bed with cabinets, made a diamond plate bumper to carry sewer hoses, added ground/backup lights, and installed towel racks.
