Finally the Roo came home!!!

I'm so happy that we finally brought the Roo 233S home today!!!! Order it end of Dec so it felt like forever. Couldn't be happier.
The PDI went well. Found a couple of issues and was fixed on the spot. Towed great behind our TV only issue was it was very hard almost impossible to get the Equalizer WDH bar off from the camper. Not sure if it was because our driveway is on an incline or because the truck wasn't completely straight w/ the camper.

Nice! Looks like my 183 from the front, but then I see there's a cargo door forward of the entry door. Must be a different model than my 183.

Very nice!

On the WDH issue, you mentioned two things that will make it a pain to manipulate your WDH, not straight and incline.

Make sure it's straight as possible, then when you're ready to unhook run the jack down and use it to slightly lift the tv and camper, just a few inches is all it needs. You'll find it much easier, I could actually hook and unhook my chains by hand without the pipe helping.

Once the bars are off just let the jack down until the load shifts enough to unlock the tongue and then unhook as normal.
