Congratulations. I agree with David.

We bought a 2014 model in May for the very same reasons. Wanted all the benefits of the true aluminum construction etc

Good point but I wanted to use the window without touching the awing at all.

Upgrades and Modifications / converting 10' awning to 8' awning
« on: July 30, 2018, 05:31:59 PM »
Hi All.
Well I am halfway thru my latest project. I am converting my dometic awning from 10' to 8' on my 2014 14db.
Why you ask? because I never liked the fact that I can't open my bedroom window unless the awning is deployed. I think it was a bad design decision and effects several models from what I can see.
  So far I have disassembled the unit off the trailer and removed the fabric from the roller tube, removed the torsion assemblies and marked the alignment holes/slots on the tube prior to cutting
I then marked and cut the roller tube exactly 2 feet shorter( from 114.5 inches down to 90.5 inches) and redrilled the 3 rivet holes to align with the torsion assembly end cap as well as drilled a 3/8 dia hole/slot to match the previous tube end. I still have to order a replacement fabric piece (around $150) and reinstall the fabric onto the tube and reinsert the torsion assemblies which is only about an hours worth of work. Thought about cutting the existing fabric down by 2 feet and reusing but it had been out in the Texas sun for 4 years and was taking a beating from the uv rays and the underside had enough staining to not be worthwhile. I will update this thread with more pictures once the job is complete.

Do you mind me asking what the doors cost, specifically the main entry door?

An 8 hour drive isn't bad at all. We just drove 2000 miles each way to buy a used 2014 14db. All the way from NH to San Antonio Texas.  We got a very good deal from a great couple who were buying a larger livin lite. They are hard to find and we wanted a pre 2016 version for the all aluminum features.

3 days down and 4 days back. We too have an issue with the entry door but knew that before we went and i have some ideas of fixing it that will also add a feature to the camper.
I really like that rear entry hatch of your model. We are just the 2 of us and a dog so wanted the queen bed and dry bath version. Tow ours with a toyota tacoma 6 cyl and had no problems(dry weight about 2800 lbs) other than reduced gas mileage of 11-12 mpg.

We owned three pop ups before this and we really liked he open airy feel of those but tired of the half hour set up and doing that again when we got home to air out the canvas, didn't want to deal with canvas issues anymore. I think the small amount f tenting on yours is a great compromise.  Still get that nice evening air with only one small tent to maintain.

We are searching for a good/clean used 21 RBS, Gray in color with a dark or cloth wood look interior, not white upholstery or trim. If you or anyone knows where we might locate this type unit, (near Waco, TX. if possible), we would greatly appreciate the assistance.  We would love to have a new one but can't quite stretch our budget that far.   Thank you in advance for the help,  Randy & Nell

this one is quite a ways from waco in knoville Tn but seems like a good value.

Looks good - I think!  Small thumbnails and huge pictures make it tough to get a good view of the pics (at least using mac/chrome)

+1. I just posted some pics over at the Aluminumcamperforum and 500 KB works about right. Those above are 4-6 times as big, so it takes lots of scrolling right and left and up and down to see the whole image when you click on the thumbnail.


I will try to resize them

OK so the wife and I are new to Camplite. Purchased a used 2014 14db at the end of May.
On the way home from picking it up we did the newbie mistake of not latching the small window over the kitchen sink.  Needless to say it is now beside the highway somewhere in Arkansas.
Started searching for a dometic replacement window online and had real hard time finding a replacement.
Did not go to the local dealer and most were from europe at over $300 and a long lead time.
During my search I found a company called Tern Overland in Arizona. They carry a european window that actually looked better to me than the original, Theirs is also dual pane acrylic but has two pivot arms instead of one. It also has a nicer (t me screen and privacy shade. The screen is black aluminum mesh and seems more robust than the dometic.
The price for this window in the 300 mm high by 500 mm wide was $229 plus shipping. I removed the dometic seal and shade and the cutout for the window was almost exact to the new one(+ 1/8 inch) so I ordered it and it fit perfectly with no modification required to the cutout area. Even had  approx. a 1/8 inch adjustment to center  the new window and lineup the screws. It has a nice built in gasket and an inner frame that clamps the entire window to the opening with abut 11 screws for a very solid feel. I have enclosed some photos.The window has a slight (8%) tint and the frame is black aluminum rather than the dometic grey. It is also smaller on the exterior . I left the Dometic silver top piece attached as an added" rain gutter". If the aesthetics bother you then you may still want to hunt down the original, I like the look of the new one just fine as it matches the black anodized door and other trim on the exterior. I am not affiliated with Tern at all so don't let the post card in the photos influence you. Just wanted to post an alternative to the dometic that seems a lot easier to get and in my opinion is built better and arrived in 4 days.

Haven't tried it either. Just assumed it wouldn't work because aluminum is not magnetic?
but  I'll try anyway.
