Yes, I agree, I don't use the air much and when you do run it with all of those ducts it will be fine in there.

On my Kodiak I had a tab on the fridge to keep it open a little I think the fridge was a Norge, this one the tabs are different, on looking at them I couldn't figure them out, Now I see how they work LOL, I like to keep the fridge propped open a little after I shut it off after each trip. You folks use the props on yours?

I must say I really like how this thing is put together more and more, I can't wait to go camping! We have 2 big trips planned so all I need is good weather!
can you add a dimmer switch to those lights?

That is a good question, I think it would be possible but I see no need, I may put a small lamp on one of the shelf things by the sofa, I think it would be cool.

It seems odd to take away the individual switches. I am not saying it isn't perfectly fine...seems like it is. Individual switches give you complete customization on how many come on from the master switch and that is a pretty useful feature in my experience.

Does your bathroom have the switch on the light and on the wall and does it control the fantastic fan as well?

However my wife in particular liked the extra storage and the linen closet and enclosed shower in the bathroom in the later models in particular, so that is what we decided to buy.

I have a 2015 which I bought last April it is the older style 23ikss, glad I bought when I did, not fond of the new one, but if I had to buy again I would either get 21BD or 23WS current models, but I am good with mine.

It really is subjective. I could have bought the old layout for the 23IKSS as there are plenty out there but my wife insisted on the new. A local dealer had the 23WS and we were excited to go see it. I don't think we were in there 3 minutes and the kids were slamming the backroom door and bathroom door off each other. That set up for 8,12 and 14 year olds is an accident in the making from where my wife and I were sitting. I think it would be great for adults and older kids.

For us we are two 46&48 year old adults with one medium dog and all 4 boys are 19-24 of which none camp with us so the Roo is a good layout for us however the big complaint by future Wife and guests is the shower.

I was going to an F350 to get a 5er but we decided to get a slightly bigger travel trailer like a Rockwood or some other brand with glass shower doors, but for now we will survive in the Roo....lol

And that's one of the reasons we bought the 23ws......There's just my wife and I !!

RooVader, the switch on the wall in the bathroom is the only way you can turn on the light, there is no switch on the light itself, the Maxair vent has it's own switches, those fans are nice, mine has 2 fans and 2 covers, they look cool, I was looking at my roof today with the boom truck, all looks well up there, it is way neater than my Kodiak, like not even in the same ballpark, anyway I love the Maxair vents they really move some air.

Also, I can think of so many times the rear private bedroom will come in handy, the early morning, all the bathing suite changes for us and the kid, if someone is tired and wants to nap or is not feeling well, dressing after your shower, def will be nice, you seem to get used to managing the doors, I am in mine a lot now and don't have trouble with it, I really would have been ok with any Roo, 19 and up (almost bought a 19 last mid-summer) But I was wanting lots of counter space, not having to climb over the table to get out of bed, and a sofa LOL so I got that and a whole lot more! Wow these campers are well thought out! LOL can't wait to get out in it, I have been super busy at my business so I don't have my hitch on yet, I will post pics when I get it done.

Very cool. My max air in the bathroom runs on the same switch as the light. Kinda silly but no huge deal.

I was looking at some photos and I didn't realize your entertainment center was similar to the dk, at least I think it was. Does it seem like a good location relative to the seating?
