New Roo owner

Hello everyone. First post here. Wanted to introduce myself.
As my user name clearly states. Im Scott.

Picked up my new to me, however gently used 2014 Roo 233S today.

Was originally looking new the last few weeks, but this one rolled in on trade and luckily I got the first crack at it. Features are almost identical from 14-16 and the price point was unbeatable.

Appears to be meticulously maintained, was traded in as part of an upgrade to a Fifth wheel.

I Traded in a jayco eagle pop up for it. With two kids and two labs, there was just no room. Plus I was tired of the pop up set up/ tear down, as well as the constant loosing mildew battle.

Towing with a 09 Sierra 1500 HD 4x4.
Had a Husky WDH with the built in sway control installed as well as a Primus EBC.

Towed great, no issues what so ever.
Plenty of power. Stopped fine. And tracked straight. Pulled in about 13.5 MPGs over about a 1 and 1/2 hour drive @ around 60 MPH.

Excited to spend the weekend cleaning it up and out, as well as getting all prepped for a fun filled season.

Thanks

-Scott

Welcome Scott, And congrats on the new purchase! I came from a pop up years ago, this is my second hybrid, you will be super happy having all that room and comfort on your camping trips! When is your first trip going to happen? Mine is going to be April 15th.

Bill
