No More Rear Slides?

Just checked the Roo/Shamrock pages. Even though they are still listed under Light Weight Travel Trailers, and when you click on them, a 23RS picture is there, when you click on the Floor Plans, Neither the 23RS or 25RS show up.

could be a temporary deletion.
could be they are thinking of merging them into the regular Rockwood/Flagstaff travel trailer lines, instead of in the Roo/Shamrock lines.
or maybe they're changing the floorplans or adding another one.
or they could be dropping rear hard slide trailers.

I asked RVW if they could order one and they could not, IMO dollar for dollar the Outback is a better deal all day long anyway.

That would be disappointing, we love our Roo 25rs, went to the traler show acouple weeks ago and came out satisfied we have a great trailer after a year of owning it. Was always sold out when we went to buy one, didn't last long on the lot.

even Keystone(the best known manufacturer of this type of RV) cut back on the number of rear slide models. from a high of 8, now down to 5 under the Outback Terrain line.
the Outback is basically the only manufacturer, i know of, that makes more than a couple of these kind of trailers.

Seems so odd to me as for us it is the perfect way to go, I hope to get a 250TRS in the next few years.

We picked up a nice used 21RS to try and see how it goes and how my wife likes towing it before going new or bigger but I have zero interest in getting a regular TT, RS ftw.

The first RV I looked at was the Spree 245ks made by KZ. I then saw the Roo 25RS, but never in person. I was tempted to order the Roo 25RS, but we really liked the Roo 23ss and/or Roo 233S. Given we are only a family of three plus the doggie, we went with the 23ss - one less hole in the wall .

I'm surprised, but not shocked that the model has been discontinued. I guess they weren't selling?!?

If that is the case, I may have to go to Keystone when the time comes. We will see. Maybe we will stay with the hybrid.

Also, Jayco still makes their Rear Slide.
