New 2016 Roo 23IKSS

Well we're picking up our Roo 23IKSS tonight, very excited. We're coming from a very small popup so it'll be nice to have some room. I've been trying to search on here as much as I can in prep but any recommendations or tips you have I'd appreciate them.
I'll post a pic once I get it home.
Thanks for having me!

Enjoy your new IKSS. We've had ours for just about a year and love it. This forum is a huge resource so keep coming back!

Here are some of the most popular mods to consider (just do a search for them):

1. Replace crappy thermostat with a digital one (I had a Honeywell RTH111)
2. Install plexiglass against the bathroom cabinet by the shower and caulk around it to protect the cabinet
3. Install a large shower splash guard on the other side of the shower.
4. Install a 5x5" fence post holder for your sewer hose
5. Get some PUGs

That crappy thermostat is fine, just get an indoor thermometer that also reads humidity. As George Bush Sr. would have said Humidity is "ba-a-ad" for campers.

It wasn't fine for me. Furnace wouldn't run half the time (similar issue as posted in other threads). Replaced the T-sat, never had another problem.

We bought ours used from a family that only towed it 3 times. Got a great deal and I absolutely LOVE the camper. Good luck and happy camping!

Welcome Josh. We have had our 23IKSS for 1 1/2 years and really like it. We added plexiglass to the bathroom cabinet shower side. I installed it with hook and loop 3M Command tabs. No holes to drill and screws to install and easy removal. I also added a piece to the right side of the stove wall. I use them to "hang" my photos to the wall of the trailer.
