Apparently the 23WS floorplan change is going to be renamed the 24WS.
New Forest River Rockwood Roo 24WS Hybrid Camper RVs For Sale at The Original RV Wholesalers
Sapphire package is no more nor con package C, now they are calling them Standard Roo package G. They note "Square Bunk Ends with Attached Boots and Aircraft Cable, Automotive Grade Easy Latch Bunk Latch/Lock".
I am curious to see if those are new/different features or just rehashing what is already used such as the plastic Rotovise latches. I know Keystone RV Center will have some 233's with the "G Package" at Hershey.
This 23WS change would have most likely been a deal breaker. I would of not wanted the smaller dinette. it looks like a wash on counter space by sq ft. It looks like a loss of overhead cabinet space. It also appears to have really hurt the ability to turtle while traveling to gain more open space. At 6'4" no way could I sack out on the smaller dinette. Why did they not bring back the pantry where the TV is on the current 23WS? Looks to be plenty of room there.
Its definitely being done to make that slide common to different models, which in turn makes the frames common also and reduces costs. Currently the 23WS has an above the floor slide and to do this floor plan change it needs a full height thru the frame slide as in the 21SS and 23IKSS. From what I have been seeing online, the price increase on them for 17.5 looks to be in the neighborhood of $1500.....ouch........about 10%......
