Smile Just got my 2017 233s Roo!

I'm from Alberta Canada and just got my 2017 233s Rockwood Roo! Waiting on a couple calls for warranty fixes but they caught them as soon as it was delivered and told me the parts were already ordered. (Crack on a door and cut on a bed)

We can't wait to take it out May long, for just over 2 weeks in July and another 10 day trip in August. I have been camping all my life, and even took my kids as practically new borns tenting, then we had upgraded to a tent trailer. They are 5 and 7 now, and are so excited for a trailer they can really live in. No more baths in wash basins or boiling water for dishes hahaha.

Having to put in extra shelves in some of the cabinets was tedious and so worth it. Other roo hacks would be interesting to learn as well.

Congrats on the new rig. We've got the Shamrock version (2015) and have enjoyed it a lot. Still making mods and trying for ever longer trips. So far, 4 nights is the longest.

Always good to know those other camping skills, though.

Have fun!

There's no change from the 2016 other than they made the media center center over the tv instead of off to the side.

We only got the 2017 because when we placed the order for a 2016 they had just finished with 2016 so automatically bumped us to a 2017 assuring us nothing would change.

In the same boat here! Live in Calgary and just bought a 2016 233s roo. Upgrade from our popup. Two kids under 7 are going insane and are so excited. Can not wait to get it and take it for our first trip in July. So pumped!
