from a 2009 21ss to a 2016 233s

We had a fun 5 years in the Roo 21ss, but this past winter the wife and her dad were talking. His wife passed away in 2013 and they both loved to camp.
We had a trip planed memorial day weekend 2013, and we were unsure if he wanted to continue camping but he said come hell or high water I'm going, so we all went to new Hampshire that week end , and had another 10 trips that year. Same for 2014, but by the end of the year he was scared to tow. My wife came up with the idea of well we can trade both our trailers in and get one. We went looking and fell in love with the 233s. We traded both our trailers in, I told my wife as long as I have the fantastic fans the power awning
with the led lighting she can do what she wanted. We took delivery the beginning of may and I did the usual mods shelving in the closet, shelf under the side bunk which was the father in laws and a second tv by the fridge so he could watch the news. Now I was a little worried 3 adults 2 kids and 1 dog but we had plenty of room and it was a very enjoyable weekend.

That's why we got our camper too.. to enjoy family time together and make the memories that we'll have forever. I know you're making your father-in-law happy to be able to continue to do what he loves.

Our daughter is just finishing her freshman year in high school, so we got a trailer last labor day so that we can enjoy the summers in the next few years before she's off to college.

Yes I can post pictures. One thing I forgot to add was my father in laws trailer had a power jack that the dealer was going to put on for us, but it was too tall and the front bunk wouldn't open all the way. The dealer installed one for us. When we brought the trailer home I thought my wife was going to kill me, when I said I broke a sweat and possibly broke a finger nail by pushing a button to get it off the truck. lol
