Thoughts on 23RS

Hi Talonman...I'm a 23RS owner and in fact was under our trailer today....the grey water tank is under the front bunk floor and the fresh water is behind the dual axels....so if tongue wght is a problem you could always put fresh water in but in doing that you would be towing more weight, if you understand what I'm saying. When we tow ours we have alot of storage area in the front, after we fold up the front beds,....that's the way the RV was made....all the storage area is in the front, there's only a long, narrowed storage part in the rear....hope this helps!!

That's great thank you!

That's what I was thinking to balance with one of the tanks, the trip to the dump station my be interesting with a full grey tank but even full it is like 1/2 way between the ball and axle so an extra 150 for a bit should ok.

The thing is I have 600 max and the 23RS I think is going to be right at 600 or close anyway, if I use lead sheets and carry some fresh water I just may be ok.

The 25RS (and the Keystone Outback 250RS) are high on our list of next campers. I love the fact that they tow small and open to a good size.

Hi ChooChooMan74....I also towed our Roo 19 with our '06 Jeep Liberty CRD, it towed nice but I always wished that I had a few extra ponies under the hood when we were facing some of the big hills & mountains that we were facing in our travels. I don't beleive that you will be able to tow anything bigger than what you have and certainly NOT the Roo 23RS...my Roo weighed 4800 lbs. I simply loved my little diesel but saw the writing on the wall & didn't want to blow the engine up while trying to tow a bigger RV....hope this info helps.

I cant see the Jeep being happy about the tongue weight of a 25RS or the 23RS.

I want the 23RS but part of me wants a 19 and just not worry about it, maybe I can just drop the leg till the little wheel hits the ground and ease the tongue weight I am very sure I have the power to pull it but do I want the hassle of making sure I am easy on the tongue all the time.

Oh I am not going to be using the CRD, even with the engine and transmission tune that I have. Going to purchase a Ram 1500 3.0l diesel first. I am at my limit with the 21BH.

Going to have a look at a 210TRS on the weekend and start making some decisions, little lighter on the tongue but heavier overall.

23RS Owner

We are the proud owners of a 2014 23RS. Sadly we haven't been able to use it yet. We bought for the ample sleeping capacity yet small towing length. Will let you know how things work out after the first trip. Additionally, the gray and black tanks are in the front of the trailer with the fresh water tank aft of the rear axle.
