I've been eyeing the Winnebago. The 2021 model doesn't have the oven, but I like it otherwise.
I'll take a look at the Rockwood Mini also.
Thanks for the info guys

I'll chime in for the Rockwood Mini Lite as well. We have a 2019, 2507s, look into it I think it will be every thing your looking for though a little heavier.

What kind of price can one expect to pay for the Rockwood Mini Lite?

The Rockwood mini 2504S is the trailer I have been looking for. It does everything well. It is beautiful. This year I have been mostly sleeping in it in the backyard. I paid 13,500 for a 2013 model.

My 2018 2109S was $16,500 - it was like brand new. For a small TT, it feels immense inside and has lots of thoughtful touches. I haven't used it yet, (we tend to camp with our kids/grandkids who also have RV's) but OUR trailer allows us to put the TV outdoors, up under the awning, so if we had a rainy day, we could always offer a movie matinee for the whole gaggle of kids :-)

It's getting hard to find ovens, mfrs claim nobody uses them anymore. Maybe so but we love ours! Nothing like smelling a roast cook all day when the Fall air is crisp! Or brownies baking....mmmm....



Tell us how you bake the brownies in that RV oven? I used it to make canned biscuits and it burned them on the bottom but not very brown on top. Whats the secret?

You might look at the Lance travel trailers as they are fairly light weight but don't know if they have a Murphy bed. Another option might be the Flagstaff 21DS or Rockwood 2104S (nearly identical Forest River products). The Rockwood/Flagstaff has the ducted AC which much quieter than the AC just blowing directly out of the AC unit in the ceiling and
also have the Torflex suspension systems which eliminate a lot of maintenance and offer better ride.

Oklatraveler, get yourself a pizza stone or a piece of unglazed tile and put it in the oven on the rack just above the burner. It will act as a heat diffuser and minimize the burning of the biscuit bottoms.

I found a porcelainized metal drip pan at a thrift shop and use it instead of a tile. Works just fine, much lighter than a tile, and won't break (as the tile did). Bake the biscuits at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes or so. Then break out the butter and the Boysenberry jam and I'll be right over![emoticon]

Didn't intend to hijack the thread - but if I can get some biscuits out of the deal........... .
