Forest River Rockwood Roo 19'

Family in Colorado seeks above! Having trouble locating a used/reasonably priced one in Colorado. To be pulled by a Toyota 4-Runner 6 cylinder, so need something light!

A dealer near Greeley is going to get some in a couple of weeks from now. Would like to avoid paying high dealer price, if possible.

Thanks for any suggestions/help.

give us an idea what "reasonably priced" is.
used hybrids, in the West, command very high prices since they aren't that common out here.
since new ones sell for around MSRP, used ones will sell for more than NADA values.

After about a year of looking for a clean, reasonably priced (and most importantly leak free) used Roo 19 in Ohio, we gave up and bought new. Thanks to this forum, we knew what to look for and failed to find a single unit that did not have water damage under the front bunk at a reasonable price. (We also looked at used Jayco's and Starcraft) When we did find one in the condition we expected, we found we were able to buy new for very close to the same price. We bought at RVW, which would be a trip from Colorado, but I beleieve others may know of internet sellers closer to you. Good luck. We love ours!

Concerning tow vehicle, I tow with a V8 Trailblazer and it's quite a change from pulling our old pop up. Towing in Colorado with a 6 might be a challenge. I'm sure others will chime in on this issue.

Just notice that Texasrockwood has a posting for a Rockwood Roo 19'. Don't know if it is sold, but that you might be interested.

I have a Roo 19 (Sorry, not for sale) and pull it with a V8 4runner. It does a good job when I keep it 65mph and under, but it really drinks the gas! Be sure you use an equilizer/anti sway hitch setup to help with the tougue weight.
