the inside should stay dry, unless you don't allow for air movement. if you seal up the trailer, you'll get condensation on the inside of the canvas. that's why PUGs/solar blankets help, along with air movement.
no need to fold up the bunk ends unless you want to "turtle", due to high winds or really bad weather. then you just use the sofa and dinette to sleep out the storm. this is one of the great things about hybrids, is the ability to "turtle".

Shore power means to plug in your 30amp cord into the 30 amp pedestal. Good idea to get a variety of adapters.

DH = Dear husband
DW = Dear Wife

Thank you. I can't wait to try it out. If it was up to me we would leave the dealership and go camping immediately. I think we are planning on taking it out the following weekend to try everything out. We will only be 5 minutes from home in case we don't figure something out. Florida is one of last places I tent camped. Looking forward to it now with my 23SS! I am sure there will be minor bugs to work out.

I figured they were designed to withstand rain or no one would want them. It was a concern of the hubby.

Too funny! I was thinking dear or damn but wanted to make sure. Where do you find the electric adapters?

Living out of a suitcase sucks and having to eat every meal out is expensive. We loved the thought of just having to pack food and clothes. This forum has been so full of great info! It has given me a lot of ideas and questions for the dealership. I have a few questions for any of you experienced campers. First how do I go about seasoning the hybrid's seams? Do they "normally" leak once seasoned? Should we treat the outside of the tent fabric with somekind of sealer/protectant? Are the PUGS expensive? Do maxxi vent covers really help? Any advice greatly appreciated. You will probably see me posting a lot of silly obvious questions. Just want to make sure we are doing things right or at least on the right track. Thanks in advance!
We got our Roo 23ss in October and are currently enjoying our fourth trip in it as I'm typing this reply! We absolutely LOVE it! We have had no problems and no complaints! We didn't do anything to season the seams and have already experienced heavy rain and strong wind with no leaks. My DH even power sprayed water on the ends and awning about an hour ago to rinse the tree pollen off in preparation for our departure in the morning, and there are no evidence of any leaks. I hope you enjoy your TT as much as we are enjoying ours so far!

We got our electric adapters from Amazon.com and the PUG's online from a guy in the Dallas area that makes them. We haven't used them yet though. Oh, and for me, DH is DEAR hubby, at least today!

That's some funny stuff right there. If you only plan on camping when it's totally dry, you may not be doing much camping! And BTW, DH and DW stands for "dear" at least in my case. May mean something else to others, such as dumb, dorky, etc. Happy camping!
