Just returned from our annual trip to the mountains of southern Colorado. 2nd year in our Roo 21ss and still love it! Enjoyed our time there even with no camp fire due to extreme drought conditions.

Nice pics!! I love camping in the mountains here in Wyoming also. I talked to a guy at work to today that said they have banned camp fires in almost the whole state.

BTW, That last pic is of our 5 dogs who took over my son's sleeping bag on the couch on our last night! I folded up his bunk end early to speed up departure the next morning.

What part of Southern CO did you camp at?

I thought the state wide fire bans were lifted last week? Regardless, it's still pretty dry around the state.

Funny how the dogs look all snug like it's their bed. lol

I think the state lifted the fire bans but it is still the perogative of individual counties to impose a ban if they choose.

Our favorite spot is north of Durango near Lemon Reservoir. The fires bans where we camped were not lifted until a few days after we left . It was extremely dry when we arrived, and no rain for the first week and a half. We started having regular afternoon showers our last week there, but not enough moisture to lift the ban while we were there.

Did you consider the 23ss? I am looking at the 23ss primarily for my wife a I. I am sure there will be times that our married children may join us. What drew you to the 21ss over the 23ss?

We did look at, and liked, both floor plans, but went with 21ss for the huge amount of floor space. A lot of people consider that as just wasted space and prefer the 23ss, which has way more storage space and a little more counter top space. For us the "open" feeling of the 21ss is what we loved. I feel claustrophobic in most small campers, but with the 21ss it feels more like you are in a small room than in a camper. That is what tipped the scales for us, especially since we camp with our 5 dogs. As for the storage space, the 21ss has more than enough for the DW, DS, and myself. You just have to figure out how to best utilize the space you have. Over the last two years we have pretty much tweaked that to meet our needs. Frankly with just the 3 of us (8 if you count the beasts) we probably would have a lot of unused storage in the 23ss; however, add just more human and I can totally see the 23ss or the 233s being the better choice. As for the counter top space, it would be nice to have a little more, but it really does not matter because we always cook outside anyway. We only use the stove top for the coffee and the oven for biscuits. They both are great floor plans. You just have to weigh what attributes are more important to you.
