2016 Roo Brochure

A photo really doesn't work. The Roo pages are in a dark green background and the black writing for passthroughs and grill graphics are hard to see in person.

But either way here is the Roo floor plans & popular features page.

Not sure why FR has not posted this as of yet?

You can use the contact us on the website and they will send you one. It took about a week for it to arrive in the mail.


P.S. It looks like the posted photos get compressed which reduces the quality of the photo. Zooming in on the posted photos it is really hard to read the text.

Thanks - those pictures aren't bad. Enough to get a look at all the floor plans. Not sure why FR can't at least post the new brochure. Not like it would be a big job to link to the new brochure file...


Its interesting to look at all the new layouts. The 23WS is pretty nice. Still not sold on the changes to the 23IKSS, but in looking at the 21SS, I think that might explain the flip flop of the couch and dinette. Looks like the dinette might have interfered with the new, larger bathroom in the 21SS. So that be the reason for the flip, and the IKSS uses the same super slide, so it got changed as well.

Wonder what the free standing chairs and table option looks like?

KMP44,

It looks like they use the same Supper Slide in the 21SS, 21SSL, 23IKSS and on few other floor plans on the Ultra V, and Ultra Lite Fifth wheels. They might have flipped them to move the dinettes away from the bathrooms or just to change the layout?

It is really hard to tell why. At first I thought it's was a production savings to have just one SS layout, but most of the SS on the Ultra Lite Travel Trailers have the old layouts?

I am thinking about ordering mine with the sofa bed and free standing table/ chairs. That way I can flip them back to the old layout. The only down side is the large window behind the table will be blocked more by the sofa when flipped.

The only place they show the free standing table and chairs is in the interior photos of a Ultra V.

The wife is still not sold on loosing the storage under the bench seating or for the fact the table can not be converted into a bed.

We currently have a pop up and have only just used the table as a bed in the last two camping trips for our 10 month old son.

That really didn't work well to setup up the bed and table each day. I am trying to convince her if we really needed the additional sleeping area beyond the two bunks and sofa we could use our queen size blowup bed on the floor. The IKSS has lots of floor space.

I don't think it has enough space for a blowup bed. The 21SS would for sure. The IKSS only if it's a very small blowup mattress.

2016 Roo Brochure

The interior photos you can see how they show the new color schemes for the units.

Each model e.g. Roo, Ultra V have interior photos of the new floor layouts of each. In the photo they present the cabinet wood and fabric option shown in the photo.

They don't offer the typical photos of the fabrics and cabinet doors as they did in the past. The only photo showing the Sydney fabric was for the Roo 23WS.

There are only three photos showing the Biltmore fabric option. The best photo showing the Biltmore was for the Mini Lites 2502KS as it shows the couch, bench seating, throw pillows, and window treatments.

I would recommend getting a brochure in your hands to see the new models as the photos of the brochure are not as good as the brochure.


I have noticed several misspellings in the catalog. I am an engineer and we are not known for our spelling and grammar abilities, so it's remarkable I noticed so many mistakes.

Maybe they are correcting them, before publishing?

Standing in the older units it looked like there was room between the front bunk and the island.

The 21SS and 23IKSS have the same floor space in front of the dinette at the front bunk. The 21SS might give you more room down in front of the kitchen.

I am sure you would need to step over the bed on the floor to enter the trailer & the front bunk, but I don't see us camping with that many people in our camper. The most we have had in our pop was four adults, two small dogs, and one skinny cat. If my son gets older and brings that many friends they can experience tent camping. OR I will move back into my backing packing tent! Nothing like having a shelter that weighs under 4lbs!

It's nice to have a RV, but to me real camping is hiking in 6+ miles only having what you carry on your back. The only time your in the tent is to sleep or if the weather is really bad.

But the wife, pets, and my bad knees is quickly ending that experience. I am sure my backpacking with heavy packs led to my knee issues.
