First trip with our 2013 Roo 23SS

Spent 4 days at Moose Hillock in Warren, NH. RV sites are awesome. Great campground. Coming from a popup it's nice having a shower and toilet on board. Everything was great but one night I did have a loud hissing noise at the hot water heater. It sounded like it was sucking air. I shut the switch off and I'll look into it. I also need to figure out how to get the tv sound through the inside speakers. DVD worked well through the speakers. It was freezing out last night and the girls loved watching Hunger Games and popping popcorn while the guys sat by the fire.

If you have the Genisys radio to get the TV through the radio; plug the head phone jack from the rear of the radio into the headphone jack on the side of the TV. My radio needs to be on AV1 for it to operate. Its tough to tell on the screen but there are multuiple AU (auxiliary inputs) then a couple AV inputs. I'd assume some of this can vary depedning on trailer assembly; but thats how my 2013 233s is.

Awesome, congratulations!!!

If you don't mind my asking, how much room is there between the dinette and the counter where the sink is when the slide is fully extended? Does it feel "spacious" / "adequate" / "cramped"?

Also, can you walk / squeeze between the dinette and the counter when the slide is fully retracted inside the unit? Wondering how maneuverable it will be to get to the fridge for loading, etc...

We've been looking at the Rockwood Ultra-Lite 2702SS which has the same layout in the center and my wife is convinced that it will be too cramped. Like you we're coming from a popup (still in ours). With two kids and a dog, I understand her concern, but think she's being a bit over the top in her assessment and that it will feel spacious coming from the smaller confines of the pop-up.

We liked the floor plan of the 23SS because of the counter space. There is a lot of interior storage also. With the slide-out out there is plenty of space for people to move around and with it in you still have full access to the fridge and bathroom. I had the wife and 3 kids and we were never cramped. This weekend was gorgeous weather so we were only in it to sleep, shower, and use the bathroom. I loved having a clean shower at my site whenever I want. I've been using a pop-up for 15 years and today was the first time I've taken a morning shower on the day we leave. Usually it's hurry up to pack up. My girls love having a clean bathroom that's ours only. Congrats on whatever you decide.

Have a 2009 23SS and find the space and storage more than adequate. Can access everything with the slide in and very roomy with the slide out

Another ditto! Just upgraded from a 2002 Coleman Utah PUP to a 2013 Rockwood Roo 21SS. Took the 1st trip in the Roo last weekend. And it was definitely nice to have the bathroom on board. Always get a site close to the bathhouse, but still nice to crawl out of bed & walk just a few feet to the bathroom - barefoot! My Utah had a slide-out & was pretty roomy for a PUP but nothing like the Roo. Also like having a freezer in addition to a frig. This means that ice cream is now an option while camping.
