Pricing one right now...I love this layout. I do also wish the bathroom was larger, but at least the linen closet helps. Would also prefer a "hotel shower curtain rod" that angles out at the top for room space.

Does anyone have any inside photos for when the slides are not out?

Shamrock 23ikss

Picking up mine this Saturday. Got it for about 21K in Tucker GA. pecocamping.com. I'll post some feedback after we spend some time in it. We love the layout!

Congrats!!! you'll be the first to own one that i have seen on any of the 5 hybrid forums i'm on.
the biggest negative feedback i've read is the main awning over the kitchen slide.
will be interested in some real world feedback.

It looks really cool and the extra counter space is defiantly something that our 233S lacks. We can't beat the 3 beds and U-shaped dinette that we have though. Also looking at the pictures Dan posted it seems the awning rests on the lip of the slide, or at least close too it. I would be worried that a strong wind would cause it to catch on something and tear or that if it got some rainwater in it it would not slope to get rid of it like mine does. I also agree with other posters that say the slide takes up a lot of space under the awening.

So we just got back from a 10 day maiden voyage of the 23ikss. It is an awesome camper! Tons of storage, and the kitchen island makes a huge difference. The one thing I would watch for is the awning over the kitchen slide, it will touch the edge of the slide and in windy weather will slap down on it. We got some cheap 3/4" pipe foam insulation and slid it over the top of the slide before extending the awning and it protected it from any harm. The beds also have a weird uneven lip on the inside edge where the tent connects that made the outside person roll down into the middle of the bed. We might put some padding under there next time to try to level it out some. The shower is functional but a bit cramped. We also had some condensation on the inside of the bed tents in the mornings, but we were at the ocean and had the heat running. It dried up during the day so may have just been the humidity there. Oh, one last thing - from personal experience... close the front door before you bend over to crank up the stabilizers... the bottom corner is sharp! ouch my back!

That sounds great. We just joined the forum yesterday after purchasing our own IKSS. So glad to hear the first testimonial of it in use. Unfortunately we're snow locked so I won't be picking it up until May. Do you mind me asking what fabric scheme you went with? My wife chose the Manhattan on Cherry, but they didn't have that one to view in person where we bought it.

We just purchased the ROO 23IKSS, the unit seen in the photos at Toppers in Waller, TX. It has the London Sky and Hickory interior which we both like. Makes the unit look brighter inside. I felt the Manahattan & Cherry made the unit look darker.

It did make it look darker, but what the boss wants.... the boss gets. Have you taken yours for a test run yet? I'm really curious (even a little nervous) about all of the forum threads on leaking at the bunk ends.

We got the Chesterfield with Hickory, but ours is the Shamrock so the Roo may have different patterns. I'm still trying to figure out what the difference is between Shamrock and Roo, they seem the same other than minor tweaks.

Here's the one we got - *Discount RV Sales - Metro Atlanta, GA
