Roo/Shamrock Options

Its me again, still trying to decide on what hybrid model to go with. Looking at the 21SS, 23SS or 23IKSS. At this point, I am thinking about building one through RVW or RVDirect. I was looking at some of the options listed with these units and wanted to see if anyone could recommend or pass up on some. Here is a list from their website. It will probably cost more to add later, so wanted to order them from the factory. Thanks!

Night Shades Stainless Steel Appliance Package Power Tounge Jack Thermopane Windows Gas Oven (Required on 21DK, 23SS & 23IKSS) Double Door Refer (17, 183, 19 Only) Airbed Option (21SS, 23IKSS, 21SSL Only) Single Door Raised Panel Refer (17, 183, 19 ONLY) Raised Panel Refer Fronts Heated Holding Tanks Power Awning w/Convenience Package Spare Tire Carrier and Cover Slide Topper - Small Slide Topper - Large Chrome Look Wheel Covers Aluminum Wheels Outside Grill 1/2 Sliding Trunk (n/a 17, 183, 19, 23SS, 233SS & 23IKSS) 2nd Create-A-Breeze Vent Cover Heated Mattresses (Mandatory Option) Heated Mattresses (Mandatory on 183, 233S)

Well, if I had the option of building one to my specs:

Can't live without: Power tongue jack

Would want: slide topper, power awning, aluminum wheels (they don't get chipped & rust like steel), night shades (curtains alone are kind of a pain), air mattress if you might ever need more than the tent end beds, and the raised panel fridge (looks nice).

Would skip: Heated tanks (pipes and everything else, including me, will freeze before the tanks), stainless appliances (have enough fingerprints and drips on those at home)

Not sure: thermopane windows. Think I would go with these if they aren't too much $$. In the cool weather we did get some condensation on the windows.

The fans, heated matresses, and spare tire (on most models) are "mandatory options, and all worth having, imo.

I suggest you edit your post, it's hard to read and you've listed a number of options that are only for models you aren't interested in. (17, 183, 19)

The best way to decide is to see all the options in person at a dealer or dealers, or at least a RV show, and pick out which ones fit your camping style. The way the options look online and in person has substantial differences. The fabric options and wood colors look different in person than an online photo.

We ordered ours with all options available except the thermopane windows, second vent cover, wood grain floor option, (which you didn't mention), and gave up the raised wood refrigerator fronts for the stainless steel appliance package.

We ordered our Roo 23SS with Bathroom vent and cover, aluminum wheels, power awning, power jack, slide topper and spare tire and carrier. We chose the Hickory wood color (not as dark as the cherry) and Kensington "pattern". It comes with the oven and bunk fans and there is a water filter and a bunch of stuff as part of the "convenience package" Good luck

We ordered every option on our 23SS except, SS Appliances, heated holding tanks, storm windows and sliding tray and I've been happy.
  • slide toppers - for sure
  • power tongue jack - for sure
  • aluminum rims - I like them for both function (no rust) and asthetics
  • power awning - love it.
  • raised refrigerator panel - a nice touch.
An air bed was n/a on the 23SS, however, if I was considering a trailer (21SS or 23IKS) that offered that option, it would be near the top of the list.

We skipped on the oven and have additional storage instead in our 233S. We picked up a toaster over on sale for $40 for any time that we want to make a pizza or toast. Easily stored and we get a lot more space.

Awning topped is a must to get everything off the top of the slide.

We ordered all options except stainless. Heard that windows, power jack, slide topper were the way to go so we got those and everything else while we were at it!

This is great! I'm trying to figure out what options we would like. What's the difference between the Jack Knife Sofa and the Airbed Sofa? I have a family of 4, 2 teens. One will probably need the sofa. Do I have to inflate the airbed sofa every night? Why would I prefer it over the standard Jack Knife sofa? I can't find info...
