Talking Picking up 2012 Rockwood 2109S Today!!

Today is the day!!! I leave in a little while to go pick up my new and first TT after having a pop up for 8 yrs and tenting before that.

Thanks to this forum I feel I am well prepared for the pick up. I have:
1. Read many posts on PDIs and TTs in general
2. Printed a PDI checklist
3. A small maglight flashlight
4. Camera
5. Pad & pencil
6. Read all owners manuals ( I had the dealer send them to me in advance)
7. Bought and installed a Prodigy P3 brake controller
8. tow mirrors
9. Torque wrench and sockets for lug nut check in transit

And most importantly, one grumpy DW who does not enjoy getting up this earlier but this is my normal time, so an extra cup of tea for her

Okay, I am on my way!!!!

Sucessful Pickup!!!

Spent about 3 hrs with the service tech (Rodger) and found two minor items. The antenna would not crank up and I thought it might be frozen as the TT was washed yesterday and temps got down to 20-25 deg last night. Rodger got up on roof and found gears misaligned. Works fine now. The other was the second battery was not installed. They installed that and when I got home I opened the battery boxes and found the negative jumper had pulled out of the ring terminal. Off to Aubchon Hardware and issue fixed.

Towing was ok. Definitely more weight than the popup. Prodigy P3 performed well with some minor power adjustments

wbdvt - Congratulations! Looks great. Glad the pickup went well. Now I just have to wait for mine. Thanks for the pics. When is your first trip?

Not sure when first trip will be. We have reservations for July 4 at a Vermont State Park but we will get out before then. Most places here don't open before May usually May 15. Will dewinterize unit in May and spend this time getting familiar with the operation of everything and doing some mods.

Unhappy I am SO jealous!

We ordered a Rockwood Roo 19 on February 10 and were told we would have delivery in 8-10 weeks. Now we are being told it will probably be another 4 weeks. We are not Happy Campers at this point. I feel like a little kid waiting to get a new toy and the wait is killing me. The only good thing is now we will have a 2013. Still not happy though. How long did you have to wait to get yours?

Enjoy!!

Ours is a 2012 so it was already made and I the dealer. We purchased it at the Vermont RV show in late Feb. At that point it made it easier to sell the popup as we did not want to be camperless and if we had not found a TT we liked we would keep the popup until we did.
I understand your angst. What part of the country are you in? Camping season here wont start until May

We are pretty much neighbors! We are from Massachusetts so camping won't really start here until around May either. Our first camping trip is in June so I'm hoping we have a camper by then! We sold our pop up in October of last year knowing we would be upgrading to a Roo. Can you tell me of any nice campgrounds in VT? I don't believe we have ever camped there.
