8 to 12 weeks to order? Wow thats longer than I expected! Hum. Looks like I need to order by the end of March for next season.
Maybe sooner. I ordered my Mini Lite 2/28/15. It arrived at the dealer 6/6/15.

If you order on 3/31/16 you may not get it until July.

Dont wait until March. They told me at this time expect 6 to 8 weeks but with Thanksgiving may be 10 to 12. If you wait until March your order will get in the system at the same time all the orders are coming in from the RV shows in Jan and Feb. That could be a problem. Especially if they have another shortage of delivery people.

Another issue is WHICH Roo you order. I understand they set up to make a bunch of one model, then set up for a bunch of another model. I'm guessing if you order one of the "less popular" models, it could be longer until they gear up to make some of them.

Looking at the Roo 23IKSS.

I guess I need to touch base with RVW again and start planing the trip back east for the spring pick up.

$653 for the thermopanes on the 2016 Rockwood order sheet I have......who knows if the dealer plays with the numbers on it. I was also told that the 2 maxxairs are now mandatory and if you order now, well your getting them......I cant understand why anyone would not want them. Especially with the bonded windows. On the form they show them as 2x and $479 for both. No provision to just get the one. I also found out you can get the standard opening windows with the Oyster fiberglass (sapphire package) then I was suprised that the wife actually liked the bonded so we kept them.

You might want to try and shop some of the midwest dealers.....I had them quote the 23WS and RVWs pricing was not all that great. Actually it sucked. It certainly was not anything close to wholesale or discounted. Look online for Labadie RV in Toledo.....

Yea Rockwood switched to Maxxair back in June and on the 23IKSS you get two as a standard option. But Rockwood told me they only provide the basic model with the cover tabs. They won't install the Deluxe units on the factory line.


Here are the different Maxxair Maxxfan models:

I installed the White Maxxfan Deluxe Model on my Popup and its great.

I would need to swap out the factory fans and install the Deluxe models after the fact. If they include the Maxxfan Plus model it would be hard to justify (right away) the effort to swap out the fans just to get the thermostat option of the MaxxFan deluxe. It's really nice to have, so I would need to try the Plus models first.

I can't find the notice from FR on the fans, anyone with the new Maxxair fans in their unit do they have forward and reverse options?

3. Get the power jack whether it's factory or dealer installed. Especially helps hooking up the wdh.
Hope this helps. We just finished our 2nd season with our Shamrock and it's everything we wanted. Fits our current situation perfectly.

Took the words right out of my mouth. I agree with you 100%.

Mr. Havercamp thanks for the tip, we will check them out. I know once you cross the Mississippi RV prices go up 20%+, for some reason.

I know the quote I got once for a 2014 at RVW was around $23k for the 23IKSS we wanted and it included shipping charges to Colorado.

The local dealer wanted $27k for a 23IKSS he had on the lot which didn't have the options we wanted; basically the base model no options. Oh yea they had the Dealer Upgraded Power Tongue Jack! They basically refused to order the model we wanted unless we were willing to pay MSRP, plus shipping, and their extensive dealer prep?

I was blown away! He stated he only gets price breaks on models he preorders each year, so custom orders are more for him which he passes on to the customer with minimal market up!

Then we went on to the trade in and they only want to give less than half the NADA price. At the time other dealers wanted to buy my Coleman Popup out right not as a trade in, as they are real popular in Colorado and hard to get nice ones to sell.

We then showed them the RVW quote and told him we would buy from him if they could be more reasonable on ordering a custom unit. He did the let me ask the manager and owner to see what he can do routine.

That was the time I had my wife with me and she was ready to buy on the spot. This was the top of the pile. The other issues were stupid or funny, but that visit was just out right....

Yea not going to purchase from them!

I know the prices have gone up in the 1 1/2 years since we bought ours. About 2000 as I see advertised prices. However they have added more features. We paid about 20000 for a nearly loaded early 2015, then paid extra later for a slide topper. I know we saved some because we live 3 hrs from the factory. Much less transportation charge. Coleraine RV in Indy. Good dealer.
