roo 233s and wheel stop/chocks

Hello to all:
Just purchased a 2015 233s and am very excited. Went through the PDI and all went well. Need to get some storage so for now the unit is still at the dealership. Going to purchase some add ons and one thing I need is the camco wheel stops. These will work with this unit correct? They look like they would but before I order anyone use them? Is there a certain model to order. Thanks

Congrats on your 2015 Rockwood Roo 233s. You could make your own wheel chocks, links:

Smile thanks

Thanks for the info but since I'm spending money I just went ahead and ordered the bal x chocks. They had great reviews and I needed a sewer hose and some small other stuff. Moving from a popup even a big one to the roo with all the room will be so nice. We love to camp and travel and have our first big trip with the Roo planned already. Chicago to Montana and then the Canadian Rockies. Hope to get out for a quick two day trip before that to shake the bugs out and get acquainted. Hoping for happy trails and some much needed family down time. Thanks again

mkcom1, I think you made a wise choice with the Bal X Chocks. We've used them for 8 yrs now and have no complaints. They do lock the wheels and I've never had to tighten them after installing them.

The tires on my Roo19 were too close together for the Camco; I found this out after I'd bought them. I ended up with the Bal X-chocks. So you probably dodged a bullet.

I bought the Bal X-Chocks also and love them. Keeps the Roo nice and steady.

The X Chocks are just the best. Believe me, they work.
