Well this is a surprise, atleast to me...

The very first thing we looked at when we were upgrading from a tent trailer to a full travel trailer was to find the floor plan we wanted. We looked at all kinds, and settled on the rear slide models because it had everything we wanted, and saved us 4 feet of towing length.

I would've thought they were popular! Guess it shows how much I know!

for what ever reason, rear hard slides have not been big sellers.
only Outback carries more than one or two floorplans of this type of trailer.

for Outback to cut down the number of models they offer, says something.

I hate to be the bearer of further bad news but the Outback rear slide models have all been discontinued (210RS, 230RS, 250RS). They are no longer listed on the official Keystone Outback website in floorplans offered and there is a notice on a couple of dealers websites that these floorplans have been discontinued. Existing stock on a dealers lot are the last new rear slides available.

They are Terrain TRS now.

The dealer here had 2 210TRS and 2 250TRS and they did not last long.

Pfew! Glad to know they are still being made. Great info. Thank you. That day may come when I want an expandable rather than the hybrid I currently have.

It'll be interesting to see if Rockwood is dropping or merely changing their Roo rear slide models. Maybe, as mentioned, they'll reappear in a different line.

I see that, while the RS models no longer show up on the web page, the Roo web page still has a picture of an RS at the top of their page. But then again, maybe their Web designers are too busy watching Olympic hockey!

I would love to be able to get an RS model Next year, with the new Ram 1500 Diesel. I think that would make a nice combination.

I wonder how long the manufacturers will support the RS models with spare parts. Having just bought a 2009 21RS Roo, this is somewhat concerning to me.

Do you know of any RV salvage outfits in your area?
