"Oyster Fiberglass"?

We currently have a 2014 Roo (233s) - looking to trade it in on a new one - really like the sapphire package.

Can anyone tell me what "oyster fiberglass" is -or better yet - is this really an upgrade?

We have had several delamination issues with our current model (which is why we are getting rid of it) -- hoping the "oyster fiberglass" is better than what we have.

We bought a 2016 Roo 23WS and as people said: Oyster fiberglass is the actual color.....like a cream color....... but it is beautiful especially with the black trim.


If you have a chance, check the 23WS (Haylett auto and RV Supercenter) video on youtube. That will give you an idea!!


We just love that new color, and for us, the interior is super !

The darker it is the hotter it will become under the sun so if the production process with the white one is already having delamination problems, wouldn't a darker color lead to more delamination?

I agree darker colour will be hotter, can speak to that first hand. As far as delamination not sure how colour would effect this. Usually it lack of glue or water getting in somewehere and causing it to happen.

It's cream color.....not black ! I don't think it will make a big difference.
