I was finally able to pick up my slightly used Roo 21BH. Todays wasn't the best weather day with rain and snow showers and gusty winds. But I made the trip from SE Mass/RI to Albany NY.
The demo went quick. Not much to show me except how to do a bunk end. But when they unboxed the hitch, we had a problem. My salesman got me a free upgrade to a Reese SC 600 hitch from the regular WDH. Well, the billing and finance department left out the SC part, and I didn't want that hitch. I called my salesman (former coworker of mine on the railroad) after a few phone calls, they admit their mistake and offered me $100 store credit or a $125 friction sway control. I then asked the manager how much to upgrade to a dual cam. $100 he said. So I took it. Went for lunch as a they installed the DC system.
The drive home wasn't as pleasant as I liked. With the gusty winds, both hands were on the wheel. But, the DC did its job. And, after having a regular WDH on the rental last year, the trucks were not affecting me with the DC setup. I puckered up with the first few trucks thinking the combination of wind and trucks would be disastrous. I really am pleased with the DC.
The tractor pulled good. I am nursing a torque converter (know issue with the CRD, and Jeep has a beefier replacement), so I couldn't put all the power to it in 4th (1st OD). I do not dare to go into 5th (2nd OD).
One quick question. There is a receiver on the back of the Roo. I have to look closer, but did any Roos ever come with a receiver for bike racks? I will try and post a pic of it later.
