Thanks all! We were talking about checking out what other campers chose to buy while camping this summer, now that we are more educated on hybrids. We had little idea what they really were all about until just a few months ago!
Don't really have any mods planned just yet. One concern we did have was with the interior lighting. The idea of turning on 10 LED lights with just one switch while coming in from around the fire caused some concern! However, only 6 of the lights are on the control panel switch. The other 4-5 having their own separate switches.
Very nice, well thought out design I think. Even our concerns about lack of counter space doesn't seem as significant once we saw how much was available with the range cover down and the sink cover on also.

Number 1 mod for us -not really a mod though were the PUGs and reflectix panels for the bunk ends for all the reasons everyone on the forum talks about. Can't go wrong with them.

Congratulations!! Great picture and such a great feeling to finally have it in your driveway! We are hoping the learning curve with our new 23WS is not as steep as it was with our popup LOL.
Many happy camping trips to look forward to.

Although we didn't use some of the amenities of our Starcraft pop-up, like the furnace and the water and water heater, I think we, and you, have a huge leg up on the learning curve of the new units. Still, as was obvious by my lack of having wood blocks and chocks that work there is still routines that need to be developed. Practice makes perfect, so it's time to go camping!

Yes it is time to go camping!!!
LOL - we used all our amenities in the HW pup except the shower and the black water waste tank. In fact our toilet was still wrapped in the plastic wrapping.
We are planning on using these in the Shamrock.....

One thing we did use was the toilet, although I, being the person who 'maintained' it, strongly suggested it be used sparingly as we always camped where bathrooms were available. Funny how few volunteers can be found when it came time to empty the honey pot;-} I think I lit the furnace twice, both times to make sure it worked, and the water heater once.

Congrats on the new Roo!! We have the exact model, have had her since June. Biggest mod we did was the pop up gizmos (we call them bonnets), added window inserts to extend our season (well worth it) and added a few hanging hooks for keys and such, etc. Love love love the camper. Been thinking about adding a small folding island to add to the counter space as well.

Congrats on your new Roo. Brought our new 233s home yesterday, dodging Colorado snowstorms. Already started mods for her, but I'll post them in a separate thread.
