A word of caution. All RV manufacturers make unannounced changes to their models throughout the year. All brochures have a disclaimer that says subject to change without notice. You can NOT go by a brochure or even one you see on a dealers lot unless that is the exact one you are buying. When we looked for ours, all the ones we saw had a roof vent in the bedroom. When we choose the one we wanted. it did not. We were OK with that.

Most people have a Roof vent Open/Cracked all the time for Condensation reasons,thus is why they have MaxAir covers,which your New Roo will have from the Factory! Youroo!!

There's a roof vent in the front of the camper and one in the bathroom. If the door is closed to the "back room", how are either of those going to help? I know the door to the back room has space at the top and bottom, but is it enough to provide good ventilation?

What's your definition of good ventilation? Will the openings at the top and bottom of the door provide some air circulation? Yes. Will they be enough to provide a blast of AC to the back bed with the door closed? Probably not.

ROCAMPER, you're overthinking this. It has a heat outlet and an AC outlet in the rear section. From a ventilation/ac/heat standpoint no hybrid is very efficient at getting the bunks perfectly balanced. The plug in bunk fans are good at doing that. The door doesn't matter. It has plenty of space above and below when closed to allow for return air for either ac or heat. As an example when you have a room in a house without a return air duct about an inch gap under the door is enough for return air. As far as condensation when conditions are right, zipping open the top of the tent a little will eliminate it. It comes with the territory with a hybrid. The floorplan has nothing to do with it. As far as roof vents a 23WS is the evolution of the 23SS and has always had and continues to have 2 roof vents. The Maxxair fans and covers on them are an option. I do not see Rockwood changing that anytime soon.

With the Bath Fans they put in NOW,I Guarantee that if you are in one of the Bed ends and you unzip a Little of the Flap and the Bath fan is on Med-High you will be getting up in the night and turning the Fan to LOW! Youroo!!

That was my fear; that on a hot night (we camp in some hot places), the back bunk wouldn't get strong AC. Best I can tell from the Flagstaff pictures, the vent is outside the bedroom door. Even with the fan going, not sure it would be cool enough back there...

We take a small oscillating fan and aim at the rear bed. It pushes plenty of air to keep the bed comfortable. Also, if you get PUGS it will help with heat buildup. We don't always open the rear bunk on our ikss since it is sometimes just me and dw. Only open it if grandkids come along.

I just went inside my 23ws (2016) and there are two AC vents in the front, two in the center, and one outside the private bedroom.
Since there is an opening at the top of that bedroom door, you can turn the vent so it faces that opening..... that vent is less than a foot from the door.

Gooshhhhh! That camper is beautiful !
