My New Roo 233S

Hi,

I took delivery of my 2013 Roo 233S yesterday and we're starting to load it up for our first trip! I ordered the Riviera interior but FR has changed for 2013 and I got Taylor Sand instead. I think it looks good.

I had several minor items and one bigger item noted on the PDI that need to be addressed. Disappointingly there are several small holes in the canvas of the front bunk. I'm waiting to hear how that's going to be resolved. Just need to make sure it's done right.

The monitor panel is to the left just as you enter.

The interior looks great. I didn't know they moved the TV back to the kitchen area (ala 2011 style).

Several small holes at the bottom aft part of the front bunk canvas.

They also put a tv mounting bracket outside so if you want you can move the tv outside and watch. Doubt I'll ever do that but who knows.



A nice feature that I will use is the LP plumbing for an outside grill. I didn't order the grill from FR so I surprised to see the trailer had been plumbed for one. Wonder if all of the 2013 are plumbed now?

Congrats! I like the colors.

Our 2012.5 Roo has the television above the couch. It works, but where you have it is much more practical. Our best viewing is to swing it out from it's travel position so we can watch it while in the front bunk. I also like the outside mount. We would definitely use that! Enjoy!

BTW... I'd have those holes repaired or the canvas replaced ASAP.

Saw the pics looks good. What do the corners look like on the bunk ends?? Nice and clean?? I see you got the heated tanks option? Dud you ask or dealer just does it.. We in Canada never put that on trailers and it's much cooler up here earlier.

The Roo is a really nice looking trailer with lot of space! I like how the windows in the kitchen open out.

Good luck! I'm sitting in mine in my driveway now as I type. We're getting it loaded up for our first trip. Heading to the the Outer Banks in a couple of days. I have three little boys and they are very excited about it all.
