Wow, prices have sure gone up since we bought ours in 2006.
We paid $14.5k for our new well equipped 23SS.

Some dealers are so out of touch on price that it's not even funny.

The best is they keep stating well $31,500 is the MSRP your getting a great deal on a Roo 23IKSS at $27,995? Really no one I know ever pays MSRP or near it, when dealers use that on me I walk. Needless to say I got s fully loaded late 2015 with every option but SS Appliances and upgraded AC and paid $10K less then MSRP with all sorts of other incentives, no freight and prep, no PDI fee and got what I wanted on my trade so I did well.

Just google some other dealer's numbers, print them out, and rub them in the dealers face.

I did that exactly from Rv trader, they did not like that, they tried to give me the bs lines of each dealer gets different incentives and most that are close to the factory just pick them up so they don't pay freight...

I felt there was value to me to be closer to home so I did not expect a full price match, but using other dealer quotes did help get them in the neighborhood. I think I ended up around 500 higher after a ton of back and forth but decided that was acceptable.

I am from wisconsin and the local dealer wanted 22k for a 233s without the fancy wheels, without the power tongue and without the oven. I found an awesome dealer in Indiana. Colerain rv. I got the 233s I wanted fully loaded with the power tongue, the the fancy wheels and with the stove and with the colors on the inside I wanted. I drove 4 hrs to get it and only paid 19k. I am a happy camper. I have had it over a yr and the only problem was the inside water filter. The dealership made me feel like a king when I bought it. I would def drive 4 hrs again to do it all over. I love that dealership. They went thru everything inside and out and even video taped it so I could go over it and watch it later if I had questions. They put the video on a dvd for me an everything. I night recommend colerain rv in Indy. That's just my two cents. Click image for larger version

airmech: Did you try Roskopf's in Richfield, WI? We've bought all 3 of our RVs from them and felt we got a good deal on all 3.

I wanted to stay in state but they didn't have the 233s I wanted and they didn't have any more coming in till the end of July. I am a 37 yr old who couldn't wait I was like a kid waiting for Christmas. Lol.

Hi Craigster: Do you find towing your Rockwood Mini lite with your Ford F150 ecoboost? Did you use an equalizer hitch w/ or w/o sway bars? And do you worry about how much cargo weight you add to the TT?
Thanks, Evergreen49
