The Roo sells more units for two reasons, mainly.
More Roo dealers than Shamrock and more "discount" Roo dealers than Shamrock.
Other than that, I think more prefer the Roo decor over the Shamrock decor.

Curious about something you said- why no propane usage? You should be able to run the furnace just not the water heater.

Honestly I didn't even research long enough to know there was even a Shamrock brand. It was really fast after we decided we wanted a HTT and when we actually bought one. I didn't know hardly anything about the HTT. I first looked on CL and found 2 that were older models and were used. We went an looked at them and didn't like them at all. They were both in pretty bad shape. So we decided to look at a new one. It was a Starcraft. We almost bought it. I liked a lot of the features in the trailer but I didn't just love the floor plan so just before we were to sign the papers we backed out of the deal. We then looked at a Jayco Feather lite. I didn't like it because it didn't have as many features as the Starcraft. So when we got home I looked on CL for a new model and there was an ad for a 2015 23IKSS Rockwood Roo and when we saw the pictures we fell in love with it! We bought it from a whole sale dealer in MI and it was delivered to us in about 6 days later. It was pretty quick from the time we decided to buy a HTT and when we actually bought one. I didn't really pay attention so much to the brand name as I did the floor plan and the features of the trailer. After spending over 20 years of camping in a pop up, floor space/storage and bathroom were a really big deal to me. The 23IKSS Roo totally fit the bill for us! So far we couldn't be happier with it! We plan on being it's one and only owner.

Hondaman that was something that one of the guys at the dealership told me. I called a few days later and talked to one that knew what he was talking about and said it was fine to use the propane that I just had to make sure the my HW heater was turned off so I wouldn't damage it. That's what it was about.

Ah- I remember that debate now. At least you are able to have fun with it at the house.

Dear CampAlot, just a word about waiting till spring. DONT! It took 5 months to get my Roo. Order early so you are ready when the warm weather returns.

Remember, spring is their best time for sales and prices will be higher.
This is a better time to shop, especially for in-stock inventory. We bought our Roo in Nov., and got a rock bottom price.
This is the time that dealers are trying to reduce inventory before next years models come out.
But you always get less of a deal when you order a RV, instead of buying one off the lot.

Looking at ordering a 231KSS so I get the options and colors I want no dealer out there has a 2015 with options I wanted and since I am buying a new one and keeping it for a long time want what I want, as we are downsizing from large TT and since there is only 2 of going now much easier to setup and more space then we need. Storage outside is tight and I have a corner shower with shower stall now and Roo shower a little smaller but love the look and colors and can keep my F150 all around a good deal.
