The boys are 13 and 11 and daughter is 7 as of this June. They are really stoked about the new camper. The boys will have a bunk as before with PUP, and the daugther is getting her own bunk(upgrade for the couch) and won't have to make those late night trips with Mom to the bathhouse. We have first big outing planned for a week in at the Dells last week in July

As for the new Fords, I to drooling over them, but will have to wait. I've been cruising the car lots, but with the purchase of the camper and a new car for the wife a couple years ago, I'll have to wait. They don't give'em away. I to will wait for the used option in a couple of years, and by them the ecoboost should really be proven out. But wow everything I have read about them leads me to believe ... "there the nuts."

We picked up our New 2011 Rockwood Roo 233s this last weekend. Had a great weekend. Dealership was great, campground was unbelieveably nice, and the Mighigan sunset over Lake Michigan was impressive. 5.25 hr drive to pick it up and spent 2 nights in Muskegon. Hit the amusement park one day and drove back on a Sunday, 7.5 hrs coming back, Chicago traffic . Love this trailer overall. Had a couple of small issues, 1-had two screws striped out on cabinet under sink. 2-and more important the fridge doesn't seem to be cooling on the ac side. Works on gas but, not on electric. Even on gas I expected the refridge to be cooler, although the freezer is plenty cold. Contacted the Dealership and they seem real helpful, but I had to head back before they could look at it and they are going to help TS&R. Did some on TS&R my own; it is a Dometic DM2652 with automatic Temp Control, but haven't found the problem yet. Got few ideas from this site and will go out do what I can before I call the dealer back. Sounds like it might be a fuse on the AC side.

Enough downerville we love this camper!!! What an upgragde form to PopUp. We will be staying at Wisconsin Dells for the last week in July to really put it through the paces. Can't wait to start buying accessories to make it ours. Got a whole list, some with help from the members here(OK alot) and some of my own. Look foward to being a part of the Forest River Family, and if anyone has any history with fridge, let me know. Thanks Everyone, Happy Camping.

From what I understand the freezer must get cold first then the coldness will work it way down to the fridge portion. Out of 10 trips I had trouble twice with my fridge getting cold.

1st time with problem: The door was not 100% tightly closed (looked closed but wasn't fully closed)

2nd time with problem: Once I turned off the auto setting and then re-selected it. Afterward the unit started getting cold. It will takes hours to get cold so try to keep the door close as much as possible. The warmer the weather is the less you can open the door without impacting the fridge temp.

It's a good idea for the service department to check things out. Now is a good time to find problems and get them fixed.


As for shopping - have fun but beware... there's go all your money!
Must say it's fun personalizing your trailer.

x2 on giving it time to cool. Also, my 233S has a slide on the right inside the fridge. Moving it up makes it colder, too. Also, sometimes the therm wire falls out so check yours.

Have fun at the Dells. I'm from WI but haven't camped there for years. We usually opted for camping at Devil's Lake and driving into the Dells.

Visit Devil's Lake if the crowds get to be too much for you. Great hiking

Yeh we wanted to stay and Devils Lake, but when we made our Reservations they were full. We ended up at Stand Rock campground. I thinking we will go done to Devils Lake for a day and check it out and take in the Park. This will be our first time camping at the Dells. Should be a good time.
