I did a search of prices and used a price from Southland RV to get my local dealer here in Florida to drop down for our 21BHS. He knew either he would match the price, or I'd make the drive to pick up the camper. He matched the price. We still paid a bit more than other trailers, but not nearly as much if we didn't talk the dealer down some. We paid a bit more than 2/3 of MSRP, but are happy with the price, and the camper.

Thanks exploringcarolina! We are going to the RV show in Raleigh this weekend. Plan to talk to the folks at DH there. I'll check out the other two.

Can anyone help me with pricing info on CampLite travel trailers. My wife and I really like the 21fbs. However, it's on the very high end of our price range. Every dollar we spend on our TT is money we don't spend actually traveling. All of my research says don't pay more than 2/3 the posted MSRP for a TT (yeah, I know there isn't such a thing in a lot of cases).

However, it seems like a lot of people are paying top dollar (near list) price for LivinLite products. It looks like supply isn't quite keeping up with demand so that is certainly part of it.

Thoughts? Is there much wiggle room?

Installed vinyl tiles directly over the aluminum floor in the CampLite today.

Purchased tiles for $6.50 each at Lowes. Tiles are .2" thick.

I have a 16BHB, and am unimpressed by how the plumbing was run under the trailer. One thing I like to do to camp in cold weather, but with exposed plumbing crossing back and forth across the underside of the trailer, I end up using water jugs instead of plumbing any time it gets near freezing. So I figured out that on the 16BHB you can run all the supply side plumbing inside the trailer without disrupting the look of the interior too badly.

A trip to the home despot and a hundred bucks in PEX, and I now have indoor plumbing.

The red lines are how I routed the supply lines. I ran white & red PEX from the pump (P) under the shower, where I picked up the shower and toilet, through the gap between the shower and dinette, under the dinette bench where I picked up the water heater (W), then under the dinette benches around to the kitchen.



The plumbing is visible in the 5" gap between the shower and dinette and would be visible between the dinette and kitchen, but I already filled the kitchen side gap with slide-out shelves. So on my camper, you can't see pipes in that gap.

Here's a pic of the shelf. It hides the plumbing that feeds the kitchen sink.



This is the first step toward being able to camp a bit farther into the fall before having to winterize. I'm dreaming up a way to have a small tank under the bunk that I can switch in to the suction side, and if that fails, I'll add tank heaters.

Here's a winter pic for those in the south who are suffering the heat. Just think - ice cold slushies wherever you look. Just remember that the yellow ones aren't lemonade.

I'm in the middle of installing a SeeLevel system and have the pump and water heater connected. I have a reset light beside the seelevel but can't figure out how it needs to be connected. I might leave it separate. Next step once the mosquitos allow me to spend more time outside I'll add the sensors on to the tanks and finish the install. Odd its not standard, but I guess if it would I wouldn't be installing (IMO) a better system than the standard stuff.
