Roo is home

I picked up my new 2012 233S Roo yesterday and brought it home. I spent 2 hours doing the pdi. I only found 1 thing wrong the radio did not work, the fuse was out. While doing the pdi we found out Forest River installed a battery cut off switch. I discovered today while playing with it the rack is missing from the oven.

I weighed the trailer on the way home, the sticker from the factory listed the weight as 4530. The weight of the trailer when it left the dealer is approx 4800 allowing 100 for the hitch and sway bar .
Truck with 2 adults 1 grandson full tank of gas no hitch 5400. Truck with trailer , 1/3 tank water is 10300.

Now to find a weekend that we have free or I am not working to go try it out for the first time. I am hoping for Thanksgiving weekend. I do have reservations for New Years and Memorial day weekends. I also hope we get some rain so the burn bans are lifted so we can have a camp fire.

Man, that 233S model is sure a hot item here.
i'm beginning to feel left out with my 23SS.

yea, another 233S owner posted pics of the new battery disconnect switch.
that's something that is not a common factory item on travel trailers.

When we bought our 233S in February we talked with the Forest River Rep that was at the RV show. He said that the 233S was their fastest selling, most popular floor plan. Hope you can get out soon & enjoy it. We just winterized ours this week and put it to bed until spring. Snow is on the way.

Thumbs up A ROOly Good Choice

After picking up our 233S last week, all of us (dealer and ourselves) were surprised with the U-dinette, tv, and battery cutoff switch. The dealer mentioned the cutoff switch as though it was some "special" upgrade. "Rare to find these," was his comment. He was impressed. I knew nothing regarding the switch and its importance. I was more impressed with the unannounced tv and dinette changes. After 30 years in tents and popups, the 233S is amazing. Driveway camped for a week and put it in storage yesterday. I miss it already. Living in Florida, "woods camping" is next month -- yes, December at Christmas. ROOly must go,now. Have fun. ROOspectfully yours....
