Just bought a Roo 26RS!

Came back from the RV show, with an order for a new Roo 26RS in hand. Dealer says it should be here in 8-10 weeks, just in time for spring.

It's our first travel trailer, so I will probably have lots of questions. I look forward to being part of this group.

Congratulations Roleen and welcome to the Forest River forums. We will be looking forward to some pictures of the new Roo when you get it home. Don't hesitate to ask questions here either. That is one of the purposes of the forum.

Did you happen to go the the show at Dulles? We were there Saturday. Quite a crowd while we were there.

Congratulations on the Roo, and welcome to the forum!!!

I'm new to owning a TT also, and I've already started asking my questions (with many more to follow, I'm sure...)
Hopefully I'll be able to repay at some point.

Seems like a really good group here, hope you enjoy your new TT, the site, and it's members!

Hokiehall, yes we were at the show in Dulles. We were there just after they opened, I didn't think the crowd was too bad. I was somewhat disappointed in the size of the show. This was my first time at this show, and didn't think it was as large as the show in Baltimore. I've gone to the show there for several years, and it seemed larger.

Anyway, we went to Dulles with the intention of looking at what kind of price we could get on a 2007 Keystone Outback. From there I intended to go to Richmond to buy a new 2006 Outback. But after checking prices, and looking at the Roo, we decided on the Roo. We gave up a couple things we liked on the Outback, but gained others with the Roo, namely it was cheaper, lighter, and when the dealer said we could get an outside stove, instead of the grill, the deal was done. Plus the dealer is close.

Outside stove, sounds interesting, and didn't know that was an option.

Have a link to it?

Our dealer gave us the option of an outside 3 burner stove or the outside BBQ on our Roo. We ended up getting the stove.

Had to go out and re-check the floor plan on the 26RS...
I know we looked at this model a couple of times when shopping.

Grill/Stove:
I was not offered the option (buying a prev. owned tt), but was provided with a new grill.
I think I would have preferred the stove.
Add another purchase/mod to the growing list...
