Things that should come with my new roo

Hi guys it's been 6 weeks since I ordered my 2016 roo233s I figure I got another 2-4 weeks before I see it.l was wondering what items it comes with from the factory. My dealer tried to talk me into a prep package they do for a $500+ fee that includes a $60 rv starter kit,a rv battery, and would fill the lp tanks witch I thought was weird because it's only $200 worth of stuff the other part of the prep service was having one of there technician go through the unit and make sure everything is in working order witch I think is stupid because that should be done anyways at no charge to me.I guess I'll just have to take my time and go through everything myself at the PDI.

So things my camper should come with that I know of correct me if I'm wrong or left anything out.

TV
Grill
Spatula
Fan lights for each bunk
Paper towel holder
Toilet paper holder
LP tanks
Battery box

Thanks...

Not sure about grill or TV unless listed in contract. To be upfront it would be best to wait for more feedback from others with this type of unit.

PS
Starter kits can vary a bit from dealer to dealer but mine was pretty simple and the items were cheap. I replaced the sewer hose before even using it.

Perhaps also:

The handle to crank the leveler jacks
A tool to reach the awning strap, if manual awning
Water filter. (but no clue where the canister it goes in might have been)

Our 5ver also had a laundry basket and a silverware organizer.

But sewer and water lines, toilet paper, black tank treatment came in a separate "kit" the dealer throws in at his discretion.

Should get a battery as part of the setup
TV and remote is usually included
Remote for the DVD/ sound system
Cartridge and wrench for water filter
You will get the grill if it was ordered as one of the options along with a small table that attaches to the side of trailer next to the grill
If you have the powered jack option you should have a manual crank handle for that as well

My guess is yours will come with a 2017 tag-title.


TV - mine did
Grill - mine did
Spatula - mine did
Fan lights for each bunk - mine did
Paper towel holder - not sure
Toilet paper holder - mine did
LP tanks - mine did - filled
Battery box - mine did - with a battery

To me is an open ended question your asking "but we should be able to give you an idea", cause we got pillows for the couch, owners manual, we got one filter, a hose to drain the gray - black tanks, something to bring the level jack down - like mentioned.......I'm sure more but can't remember!!!! HAPPY CAMPING

tv-Yes
Grill-it's an option so yes if you added it to the order
Spatula-? not sure why a spatula is listed. Doesn't come with the grill option.
Fan/light combos-Yes
Paper towel holder-Yes
Toilet paper holder-Yes
LP tanks-Yes
Battery box-Yes

Prep package fee is a ripoff. All that should've been included in the out the door price.

Amazing the difference in dealers. You're getting hosed , my friend, and I don't mean a sewer hose. Anytime a dealer wants to charge you 500 bucks to do what they should be doing anyway, they are just trying to pad their bottom line. We got everything you listed, plus filled propane tanks, plus $250 accessories from their store, plus a full prep by the tech who did the pdi, AND, a spatula....all for no additional charge. And this was at a price that matched internet wholesalers.
If they treat you like this before the sale, I would not want to see what they do after. Good luck.

We bought a 23ws and all the things you mentioned:
TV
Grill
Spatula
Fan lights for each bunk
Paper towel holder
Toilet paper holder
LP tanks
Battery box

All come standard with the camper.......the $500 package they want to sell you is to my opinion not worth the price . The starter kit is all cheap stuff ( they gave it to me even tough I didn't pay for it)...... get your own battery, and who cares about a technician making sure everything is OK when you will go with your PDI

That was my opinion

The $500 starter kit is not worth anywhere close to what it consists of. Usually a cheap stinky slinky, toilet chemicals, TP and maybe a water hose.
As for a tech to go through and check that all is working, that is the job of the dealer and if he is worth a $%^ all that should be done prior to the walk through.
