Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new camper. Hope the wait time goes fast. Our Sabre was 7 weeks to the day we placed our order.

Welcome to the "Roo Kroo"!!!

there's about 3 other 23IKSS owners here so you should be hearing from them.
it is an impressive floorplan.

can't say about the price, sounds high to me but i got my new ' 07 23SS for $14,500.

as to issues, the two that crop up are that you don't have access to the bathroom in transit, without putting the kitchen slide out.
and the awning over the kitchen slide.

I have the 23IKSS myself with all the options. Have been out twice with it so far and it's been great. Last weekend we were camping in the hill country of TX. and it got pretty cold at night. The furnace was ok, but I also carry a space heater too and everything was fine. The Gizmos covers are a must have. Didn't use them the 1st night but did on the 2nd night and what a difference they made.

Have had no problems at all with anything so far. The big floor plan is great. Lots of room and lots of storage space. One thing you want to get is a folding 7' ladder from camping world. Makes putting on the Gizmos easy and you can check to see it any branches or twigs have fallen on the slide out before you close it up. Ladder stores nicely in the front storage space.

One thing did happen, under the trailer on the sofa slide out, there is a red wire being held up by a wide black band that expands with the slide out. Near the band I had a long bolt coming down that snagged the black band and ripped it off the slide out wall. And easy fix at home where it happen but maybe not on the road with out tools. Check for it and just cut down the long bolt.

Carry a space heater in cold climate, it was 32 degrees out. Good luck, you will love it. We already have several more trips planned.
