Worst thing I remember (we had Rockwood Roo 21 from '02-'04) was the condensation on the tent ends staring at you in the morning, daring you to move enough to let them all drop. We installed tarp covers later on that helped.

I'm 6'4" as well, and I never hit the top bar, but man, I have about killed myself standing fully upright a bit too soon when exiting the slideout.

Thwonk!

screw the heated mattress, Someone figure out a way to heat that shelf.

To me the worst thing was waking up in that hump where the bed hinges one the slab. That's the reason I got rid of the hybrid and went back to a trailer with a real bed.

I must be weird as I have never felt the hump where the mattress folds...or they improved it. I use PUGS and have never had any condensation either...but haven't camped when it is really chilly yet so it may be coming.

You will be surprised how well the PUGs work when it gets frosty outside!

As it seems we have nothing better to do with our well deserved retirement/vacations, why not add a radiator to your water heater and route it thru the bed frame.

Then you will be toasty warm, you will sweat at night and run out of propane in about 3 nights. :-)

Pad on the Shelf

We immediately cut a piece of 4" foam to size and the DW sewed a nice cover on it. Now our bed is a little bigger. Much better.

I do not miss fighting with the shower curtain in our Roo 23SS. I think I still have scars on the top of my head from the plastic curtain track at the bunks too. That thing was like a razor blade.

Really love our shamrock 183 but I sure wish there was a smoke detector made that wouldn't go off every time you try to cook something. At least they made it easy to take down and stick outside somewhere till breakfast is ready 😀
