First Night in the 233s

We had our first "Try it out and see what we need" camping night this week. It was great! Coming from a popup, it is like a whole new world.

Everything worked as designed. No water leaks under pressure, the toilet works (for those of you who were part of one of my earlier posts.... no we are still not pooping in it... yet). The stove fires up, the CD player plays, the shelves I built worked great.... to keep it short, we are pleased with it.

I learned a thing or two about what I still need to acquire and what I didn't need to transfer over from the popup.

I hope everyone who is taking delivery of their new Roo's here lately have a good experience as well!

Still have to replace the cracked skylight... that is another story.

James

To go or not to go (number 2); that is the question. We happily use our trailer's facilities

Sounds like a great first night. Good luck with that skylight.

Here's to many more trouble free trips! By the way, eventually &$@# happens. When it does use your toilet!

Very funny!

I'm not naive enough to think that we will never use our camper toilet for "number 2".... but for now, we are trying to limit usage to "number 1". As dumb as it sounds, my wife and I are in amazement that we don't have to make the "100 yard dash" to the campground bathhouse with kids at 4:00 AM to just pee anymore! Life is good.

it always interests me why people will spend thousands of dollars for an RV and then not use the toilet, for what it is designed for and the design has been around for decades.

if you don't mind me asking, why don't you intend to allow for #2 usage?

IMO since these great toilets do not flush , understandable . you have to fill the darn thing 3/4 full "water waste" so as to not leave #2 tracks all over the bowl.
And you know I drain and flush the black tank and I don't want to deal with solids.
I live on a farm and grew up on one I'm used to it. But not in my camper sorry .... To each his own .

Or you can use "Happy Bowl" liners.

The #1 reason that we upgraded from a pop-up to a hybrid. With 3 boys, it was always my job to walk them to the bathroom across the campsite at 5 AM. Whether # 1 or # 2, they can use the camper's bathroom as long as I don't have to get up.
