From what I've been reading the 3,500 is six inches taller than the 3,000.

I have a 2011 Roo 23SS. Last year I installed the VIP 3500. As I recall, there was only a couple inches between it and the open bunk. The Roo is still in winter storage or I'd give you an exact measurement.

Did you have to increase the size of the mounting hole from 2 to 2.5 inches?

What's the difference between the regular 3,500 and 3,500 VIP.

You can get the 3500VIP to fit the 2" post. Just give them a call at 888-367-6978

I think they only have three current jacks. Two VIPs and the Hi Power, which has a different type of screw mechanism. I know nothing about that jack.

Barker advised that the VIP is the shorter model.

Nope, I didn't have to drill/cut/hammer/cuss , etc... I took out the 3 bolts from the factory jack, dropped in the VIP, and was done.

Also, I found my receipt. I got it from PPL Motorhomes. It was part# 94-0115 at PPL. Their site indicates that 94-0115 is Barker part# 30828. That's the VIP 3500. 18". And according to PPL's site, it has a 2 1/4" diameter post.

I ordered the VIP3500 for my 2014 233s and it's too tall by about an inch. With the bunk down, it touches the level. If I take off the level and the plate it sits in, the bunk is flush up to the housing. I really wish I could somehow trim about 1.5" so the bunk would clear.

I just talked to Barker and the 3000 and the 3500 are the same height above the frame. I am going to remove the level and put the cover on to provide a little padding between the top of the jack and the bed.

How about no power jack?

I have a pop up and never needed this feature. Now I 'm looking at a Roo 183, not too big. Do I really need this option?
