2011 Roo 21BH Has arrived!

Took delivery of the Roo 21BH 2 weeks ago.
Really happy with it so far (been sitting in my driveway doing mods)

Planning a Dry Run in 2 weeks, just for a weekend, cant wait, of course kids are counting the sleeps....

All went well at pick up, I'm from Canada and picking up in US was a piece of cake.

Albany RV in NY were really helpful, and came through with flying colors, special thanks to TJ. . Good crew all around.

Only issue with Forest River (after they told me the hitch height is 18") was this TT has a measured hitch height of ~22" (they add a ~3" rectangular tube between axles and frame) I didnt order it this way, they just build'em like that... that is life.

The ball is a 2" not 2-5/16! (had a hard time changing the ball! ) all the literature I seen said 2-5/16, seemed strange to me as well....

other than that all else was as expected.

I hope my Tacoma wont have a hard time with it.....

Tacoma should be fine, we were pulling our rockwood 2502s with one and it did ok. Enjoy!

I expect the Tacoma to do ok on the flats, but the mountains is another story fingers are crossed, thanks for vote of confidence.

I borrowed a GMC savanna to tow it back from dealer, that was an easy drive.

We are looking at your Roo's twin, Shamrock 21bh. Do you find the table a bit wobbly? Do you have any concerns about feeling heat from the refrigerator exhaust in under the awning area?

We're looking to upgrade from a pop-up (99 Coleman Santa Fe). Looking for a bit more ease at set up but still want to feel like we're camping.

The fridge exhaust is on the roof, the part under awning is the air inlet(and access panel), so that should not be a problem.

Table... I can not say yet, we are planning our first camp this weekend.

I have raised and lowered table several times. it is quite bottom heavy, and legs seem to be built solidly. Will let you know what we think...

no problem, just like declaring your purchased goods and paying tax on it, except there was one form that had to be filled out, pay one tax, pay RIV fee and your good to go.

Have 45 days to do inspection then get license plate and pay other tax. (I'm will be getting that done this week)

We received our 21bh last week. It also had a 2" ball. Did you remove all the panels inside the cabinets? I took them all out including the one in the back storage compartment. I am a little worried that things might flop around in there while traveling and break something.
