2017 Shamrock 23IKSS arrives next month

Hello. Long time lurker, first time poster here. After much research we have put a deposit on a 2017 Shamrock IKSS. We looked closely at the 233s, and 23WS before settling on the IKSS. I probably read nearly every Shamrock/Roo forum post on the internet. We are moving up from a 2006 Fleetwood Niagara pop-up. Earlier this month, I contacted local dealers and RV Direct (about 4hrs to Albany location) about ordering 2017 model and requested quotes. Orders placed now will be 2017 models with delivery in May.

Ryan Davis at Keystone RV center in Greencastle, PA indicated that they have 4ea. 23IKSS ordered and due to come in March. He said one of the four trailers has every single option we want down to the flooring and fabrics. He said that he wouldn't know if its a 2016 or 2017 until it arrives. I explained that I want a 2017 and given the March delivery we both assumed it was a 2016. I asked him if he could verify and when he checked with the factory he confirmed that its a 2017! I put a deposit on it.

We are getting every option except: Heated tanks, Dual-pane windows, 15K A/C upgrade, and stainless appliances. The two lowest quotes were from:

RV Direct $21,910 (2017 order now, arrives in May)
Keystone $21,987 (2017 arrives in March)

Congrats on your new hybrid. I don't think a 2016 and 2017 are much different....New is New !!!
As for the options you skipped, not too many people take them.


WELCOME to the world of Hybrids !

Dre

Did you get the dual recliners and free standing dinette? We have a 2015 shamrock 23ikss and were considering trading for a 2016 with those options until sanity reeled us back in. Those recliners sure look nice though. Congratulations on your purchase.

Apparently there are no changes to the 2017 model from the "2016.5" 23IKSS that has the shower doors and entertainment center next to the front bunk. At least for now even the fabric choices are the same. I did not get the dual recliners but opted for the Hide-a-bed instead because we need the extra sleeping. We went with the booth dinette for the same reason (I guess I missed that one in my earlier list of options that we didn't get).

Congrats on the new camper! We just sold our 21SS for a larger unit but loved it! We will be ordering a new unit in the next couple of weeks.

Have fun!!

Congrats! We ordered the Roo version this past week and should be receiving it in April. That is interesting it is likely to be a 2017. Sounds like we have the same options as yours as well. We loved the openness of the floor plan and all of the cabinet space.

The open areas and storage are what sold us also. Many times it's just the wife and me but many times we have granddaughters stow away. It's great to be able to sleep extras without converting the table or sofa. They are great little campers.

Exactly. We have twin girls who are 5 so they will take one of the beds. We got the Hide A Bed option in case they want to bring a friend as they get older. We will be spending most of our time outside, but if the weather is bad that extra room and kitchen setup is going to come in handy! Can't wait to get ours for its maiden voyage. I hope the PDI goes well and does not delay our plans.

The hide a bed is just a sofa that converts to a bed. We have the sofa with the air mattress option. We haven't used it yet. I understand it is no longer an option.
