As a former owner of a 23SS, I would go with:
  • slide topper - Absolutely
  • power tongue jack - Wish I had one on my '08
  • aluminum rims - Beats center caps and beauty rims!
  • power awning - For convenience
  • raised refrigerator panel - Hides lots of fingerprints and looks good
  • night shades - Curtains only were a pain
  • 2nd create-a-breeze - Love the one we have on our Flagstaff
As with some of the others, I can only recall using our oven one time. Actually, DW recalls it - I don't.

Those pictures totally answer that question. Thank you!

I'm getting the options of night shades, airbed sofa, fridge panels, aluminum wheels, and 2nd create a breeze cover.

Can't wait until the end of May's arrival!!

Great recommendations folks! I just copied and pasted the options that were offered on the RV Direct site. What is the slide topper? If I don't go with the oven, is it just a big open cabinet? I wish I could find a dealer around here to see all the options. The only dealer around here has one unit of each the 21SS and 23SS and it basically has the same options, which is the convenience package with the create a breeze vent. For some reason they didn't order with additional options that I mentioned in my original post. I think I will take the advice and go with power jack, power awning, aluminum wheels, airbed mattress, thermopane windows, night shades and raised fridge panels.

Slide topper is basically an awning that protects the top of the slide from debris. A MUST in my book.

On my Roo 21BH without the oven, it is a big open cabinet with the bottom side of the counter top stove on top. If you don't plan on baking, it is a nice use of space.

The slide topper will keep most of the rain, leaves, sticks and bird droppings from ruining the seal prematurely and will keep you from having to clean the slide off each time that it's time to pack up. If there aren't a lot of trees around you might be ok with out. Personal preference. Most trailers out there seem to not have them , but those with experience know that the topper can save a serious water problem later. Definitly cheaper to pay now for it than to install aftermarket.

They sure do. The jackknife bed is for inlaws and those that you want to keep moving

The air bed is not avilable on the 23SS or I would have ordered it.

The thermopane windows are really kind of a waste... Unless you plan on turtling in cold weather. You are adding a thermopane window with a R-value of 2.5-3 to a hybrid trailer with tent ends that have a R-value of 0 and are ten times the size of the windows. Spend the money from the windows on a set of popup gizmos and some reflectix for the windows.

Yep, that is why I didn't order thermopane windows. I figured the tent ends were more of an energy loss than the windows ever would be. : )
