Hello everyone. Took delivery of my first trailer last night, a 2018 Rockwood Roo 233S. Have a wife, 2 kids (14 & 12), and a little dog super excited to get out camping! Definitely seems overwhelming with how much there is to learn but am taking it one piece at a time. So far pleasantly surprised that we haven't found anything wrong on the initial walkthrough, but from what I've heard it's pretty common to have minor issues.

Almost forgot, location is So.Cal. (Inland Empire) so if you have any recommended spots I'm all ears! We have already booked Lake Arrowhead, Doheny State Beach, and Crater Lake

Be careful, owning an RV is like eating Pringles. Once you start, you can't stop.

Welcome to FRF and the Roo Crew!

Be sure to get Popup Gizmos and Reflectix for the tent ends.

We had our Roo for over 10 years, when we lived in California.

So you'll have to get experienced at dry camping, since less than 1% of California state parks campsites have hookups.
Which means inverter generator, blue tote tank, fresh water carriers/jugs, inverter for tv, dual battery setup.

Welcome from Wisconsin and congrats on your Roo 233S. Lots of friendly, knowledgeable and helpful people here to help you. X2 about the Popup Gizmos and Reflectix for the tent ends that bikendan mentioned.
