Our new camper

We have received our camper from rv wholesalers in good shape. Only problems so far are the exhaust fan over the stove didn't work! The dealership set up a warranty appointment and we got her fixed right up. Well not right up, it took two weeks. Seems the biggest holdup was getting warranty approval from forest river. Not a biggy in December but could be aggravating as it warms up! Small price to pay for the initial savings imho.

I second the motion on Four Paws. Also, Mama Gertie's Hideaway in Swannanoa is another great place with quick, easy access to both Black Mountain and Asheville.

Over the years, we've dealt with 3 different dealerships that were really good - two of those we had bought from, and then we dealt with one that was beyond lousy, but regardless, the one thing we found everytime is that RV service work is not usually quick. The good shops seem to go far out of their way to help out with break-downs that happen to people while traveling, but just regular repair work usually involves delays for warranty approval or for ordering parts, and it usually takes a while between the time you call for an appointment and when they can actaully get to it.

We have tried to save our service work for the off-season whenever possible to avoid the hastle of trying to get in and out during busy times.

Rockwood Roo 23SS tire covers

I'm sorry, I am new to this site, and cannot figure out how to start a new thread.

Hoping someone can help me. We just bought a 2013 23SS and would like to buy tire covers. Our tires are ST205/75R14. Does anyone know what kind of tire covers and what size to buy? Also, do you recommend covering the entire unit? I'm seeing mixed reviews on whether to cover the entire camper or not.


Any help would GREATLY appreciated!

July, Harbor Freight also has them.

as to starting a new thread, it's very simple.

simply pick which section/sub-forum you wish to start a thread in.
then at the top left of the threads list section, is a dark green button that says "New Thread" and it has a ink pen and paper in the button's left side. click on that and a "Post New Thread" box will popup. put in what you want it titled and then type in your post.

If your camper is going to be in storage for a long time, like it is in snow country, covering it is the way to go, I think. The big benefits are UV protection to reduce fading and it will help keep the trailer cleaner. Its a fair amount of work to put on and take off, so if you are in a climate where you can use it year-round, it may not be worth it. But for longer term storage, a good cover can keep your trailer looking good and help it hold its value over time.
