New Roo and a favor to ask :)

Purchased a new to me 2012 lightly used Roo 19 last week and I'm patiently waiting for some of the snow to melt to go pick it up....next few weeks or so, pumped to take her out and have a bunch of dates reserved already.
I was wondering if someone could do me a huge favor and measure your camper from the rear wheels up to the hitch, I'm leveling out an area of my driveway and adding a small retaining wall and space is at a premium, I want to make sure I have room for the camper and my boat next to it in my driveway and the shorter I can make it the better.

I would but we have a different model. According to the website it says its 20"9" how far back was the wheel base? I'm sure someone will be along shortly to actually measure theirs for you. Congrats '

It was right around 16' from the front of the hitch, to the back of the rear tire when I measured my Roo 19 yesterday.

Talk about birds of a feather... I lengthened and widened my trailer area 6' this past weekend to accommodate my new Roo 23SS.

Looks good! I wish mine was that grade. I have a 3' x 20' x 18' I'm doing. 6x6 pt timbers and fill. Waiting for the white to go away and the ground to thaw a little.
