Don't want to leave home without something we need or wish we had.
As an ex owner of a 23IKSS:
1 - PUGS
2 - Small electric heaters (we have these: https://www.amazon.com/Lasko-100-MyH.../dp/B003XDTWN2) we hanged them at the entrance of the tents and it kept the beds warmer and air circulating, avoiding condensation. I saw them for $10 at Walmart....
3 - Oxygenics shower head (https://www.amazon.com/ETL-26781-Whi.../dp/B00F5MUB66)
4 - Small plastic stool to put in front of the beds so the effort to climb them is dramatic reduced (https://www.walmart.com/ip/Stout-Stu...olors/47089037)
5 - Transparent plastic protectors for the sharp corners in front of the beds (https://www.lowes.com/pd/Miller-LLC-...Guards/1184387) they really hurt if you bump your leg on those corners w/o those protectors.
6 - Things you will use everytime you go camping:
  • TPMS
  • levels to stick to the trailer
  • Camco Leveling blocks
  • Wheel Shocks
  • Drill adaptor/electric drill for moving up/down the TT jacks.
  • Electrical surge protector
  • Water pressure regulator with dial
  • Transparent sewer hose connection
  • Camco 2 x 10ft Sewer hose kit
  • Sidewinder Sewer hose support
  • Additional garden hose for the black tank flush
I believe this is the minimum for a start.

Have fun!

The one thing I wish I had on our first trip was a drill or a impact ( cordless)for the stabilizer jacks. We were like you pop-up and tenter for the longest time. I couldnít figure out my my father in law was laughing at me for the entire time I was putting them down then he comes out with his cordless impact wrench and zip zip and heís done. JERK. But now I know . Other things are box of rubber gloves, sewer hose, water pressure valve, garden hoses one for sewer hose cleaning and I would say 2 hoses 25í for fresh water. surge guard, leveling blocks either wood or store bought. I have store bought ones. I bought 2 packs of 10. I did this for ease of storage and weight, wheel chocks.

Advantages of store bought blocks vs wood are lighter and store easier and faster to adjust if needed. Wood advantages are stronger and can be made to a specific length that you may need.

Disadvantages of store blocks. If you are on uneven or very rocky surface the plastic will break or fatigue and you will probably have to buy a new one. Best way to solve this issue is a piece of 1/2 or so of solid rubber mat to absorb some of the pressure.

Wood block disadvantages are they are heavy and bulky and stay dirty, not as easy to clean. Both work great for leveling purposes though.

Iím sure we could go on for hours about everything I have learned to get but some things are found out best by camping and seeing what others have at their campsite. I have also learned more than I can say from this site and the people here. They all have been great . Good luck happy camping.

I thought heated mattresses were a standard feature.

Never heard of any Roo/Shamrock having those as an option you pay extra for.
Must be a recent change.

Yes, I believe that all those are standard except the larger a/c unit.
