Jakearoo / Bikendan,

Thanks for the information. Looks like I’ll be kicking back in the easy chair watching videos all night.

I'm good at the parking...pulling forward and backing several times, getting out and mumbling, scratching my head, looking as if I know what I am doing, etc.

It's the small details like getting the darn thing level which blows my mind. J

I'm Kristina, I live in Waterford Michigan. My husband and I have 5 children and we outgrew our Fleetwood Sea Pine years ago! We decided it was time to upgrade when we packed up the PUP at 10pm to avoid the rain that was coming on our last day on vacation. We were looking at the 183, but our Honda Pilot couldn't tow it, so we upgraded tow vehicle to a Suburban and then decided bigger is better! Our purchase was final February 12th, but decided to keep it there until spring. With dance recitals and hockey, we'll pick it up on the 19th, the only open weekend for the next 2 months.
Hi!!!
I dont have a 233s lol, but 'hey" anyways
You live right across the river from me, so if you go to any good campgrounds in Michigan please let me know!!!!!
My daughter was eyeing the waterslide at Addison Oaks in a magazine we have (I think thats where it was) so, a heads-up prior to booking at any site would be greatly appreciated!!!

Kim

Go Wings!!!!!!

Addison Oaks isn't far from me, but we haven't been there yet. Have you been to Mackinaw Mill Creek? It's one of our favorites.

Hopkins levels have markings on them that tell you how much height you need to add to get to level. I have them, but am waiting to get to a level place to install them & for it warm a little so that I know that they will stick properly.
The RVwholesalers setup video is also available on youtube.

No, I haven't. I've been to some campgrounds in Northern Michigan, but that was years ago, and in a tent!!!
I think next year we will try some out, but for this year I think we will mainly be in Ontario. Although, I was considering somewhere near Cedar Point, for a night. Any suggestions??

I've never done camping at CP. I haven't been there since I was 14. You should check out the FROG Mini Rally. A bunch of us are meeting in July at Maumee Bay campground in OH.

I just took delivery of my 233S about 6 weeks ago. However I've got a Shamrock, which is basically the same thing as a Roo, except for the interior color choices. The Shamrock dealer is about an hour closer than the Roo dealer, and that dealer matched RVW's price.

Unfortunately we're still locked in winter's grip here. Just got ANOTHER 7 inches of snow on Wed. I'm SO ready for the snow to be gone and for the camping to begin! We've got 4 boys to pack into the 233S and by all appearances there will be plenty of room for a friend.
