Forest River rockwood mini lite
« on: February 10, 2017, 01:17:38 PM »
We are now looking at the 2502ks instead of 2509s or 2304s.  Does anybody just sleep on the soda bed and dinette? How comfortable will it be for our growing boys??

Honestly with the boys and dogs you'll outgrow it in a year. I also believe in the kids having their own space to spread out, at least with bunks they have their own area. I think the 2509s is the best bet in those models.

My 2 cents, but probably worth one.

I'm uploading photos now, but if it were me, having camped extensively with 2 boys from infancy to their mid 20's, I think they need a designated bed, especially when they hit the preteen & teen yrs.

Also, the sleeping area on the Mini's sofa isn't the most user friendly. Mind you, Chris & I have slept together on the jackknife sofa in our hybrid for 10 winters, but we are not the biggest of folks. Lots of teens are bigger than us. On the MiniLite, the sofa has hard frame arms so you can't gain any inches by propping your pillow there or stretching your feet straight out. I am 5'4" & can not lay flat on the new sofa. Also, there is a height difference between the flat cushion seat & the puffy back of the sofa, so it isn't an even surface to lay on. It measures 42"wide by 55"long, not including the wood framed arms.

As for the dinette, it is a good size, 44 wide by 71 long. I have to say, though, it is pretty hard. Maybe since it's new & not broken in yet, but it didn't feel too comfortable to lay on.
Suzanne, Chris, & the Boys
