Roo/Shamrock 183

We are considering upgrading from our pop up to a hybrid, and like the Roo/Shamrock 183 because of the 3 pop out beds. For those of you who own one, what are your likes/dislikes about this model. Are you happy with the amount of space?
Thanks.

I'll move this to the Roo subforum so you get more traffic.

We have it's big brother with the slide and couch so I can't help much with the roominess of the 183. I can tell you that the three bunks are great to have with 2 or 3 kids. We have three and no pulling out the couch or making the table into a bed. That makes a huge difference.

Thanks. I like the 233 too, and wonder if we should consider it also.

The 233 (not the S) is 1,400lbs heavier and 3ft longer than the 183 so you will want to be certain your vehicle can tow it. It also comes with a couch and more storage -both are very useful.

unfortunately/fortunately, we would have to get a new vehicle to tow either one. It makes the decision for upgrading even harder.

The best advice I can give you is this: Buy your second trailer first. The extra room you get with the 233 is nice. A couch is a must have IMHO. Especially nice with a camper full of kids on a rainy day. They can play on the table while I sit and read on the couch.

Thanks.

We just upgraded from pop up camping ( easy bake oven), to flagstaff micro lite. its just large enough for both of us and our two dogs. I considered the hybrid, but has the bed like a popup. and the ac in ducted which is going to make a huge difference than the ac in the popup.

R00/ Shamrock 183

We moved up this year from a pop-up to Roo 23SS and fortunately I already had an adequate TV for any hybrid. If you're considering upgrading your TV at this time, you are in a good postion to match TV and trailer.

I did contemplate the 21SS, but, we loved the floorplan of the 23SS and I'm glad we bought that model. My suggestion would be to buy something that you won't outgrow in a couple of years.

good luck.

We just went through the same thing, traded our Freedom 1910 Popup and just picked up our new 2013 ROO 183, "with the new London Sky interior!!" we are only a couple days into it and have our first trip booked next weekend, but it is a huge step up from the roomy 1910, and alot lighter than the 233S, our V6 4-Runner is handleing it just fine.
