We camp often including a 34-day trip across the SWern US. Our Niagara is a little rough around the edges.
We upgraded from 2000 Coleman to an IKSS last year. Our opinion would be there is nothing we don't like about it. We liked our popup, but after 13 seasons, it was time for a full kitchen and a bathroom.
My experience has been that popups sell fast on CL or even e-Bay for good $$. My sister-in-law called us and bought ours the day she heard we bought the new camper. If you want, ask the dealer what they will give you, then compare that to CL. I would bet you get a lot more selling it yourself, and it will sell quick.
We took a 12 night trip last summer - 2,800 miles to visit some friends. We had 4 nights in one spot, and 8 one night stops. So glad we didn't do that in the popup! We got pull-through sites and stayed hooked up. The front bunk came down and was clear of the truck.
As the earlier post mentioned - the shower isn't really usable, at least for me. But we've always used the cg showers, so not a big deal to us. Otherwise, we just love this floorplan and have been very happy with everything about the Roo. This camper worked great for traveling on a long trip, and its also great for a week at the lake in a state park with no hookups.
Its a little heavier than some other 23' trailers, but it tows great with the pickup. And it fits into all the places we used to take the popup, which was a big deal to us. Its less work to pack and setup, so we use it a lot more for weekend trips, and we have greatly extended our season and our "territory." No AC in the popup, which kept us out of the hot weather in the south and the east coast beaches, and we now camp in the spring and fall when its cool here. Discovering fall camping and how great it can be was one of the best things about the new camper.
Good luck in your hunt!
