Hello From Massachusetts!

Hi All,

New member here - wife and I just picked up a 2016 Forest River Rockwood Roo 233S and are very excited. We slept in it last night with our 9yo despite the 35 degree weather and are having fun learning all the controls and maintenance needs. I have two college graduate children as well which is why we chose the capacity the 233S provides.

Our plan is to mostly do weekend trips and a week or two at a site over the summer. Unfortunately, there are not many campgrounds near us where we could commute to work from over the summer during an extended stay.

I'm an IT director and my wife supports the technology infrastructure in our local school system. In my spare time, I'm a gadget-geek and a home brewer - two things I'll have to figure out how to integrate into RV life.
