New Roo 23SS owner in southern Alabama!

OK, brand new, newbie here, first RV!

So, my name is Josh Murrah, hailing from Mobile, AL.

We decided we didn't want too large of a towed trailer, so we decided on a generous-sized Roo, and after a little shopping and browsing (about a month), we ended up with a:

2008 Rockwood Roo 23SS

So it's actually in fairly good shape, all the appliances checked out, plumbing, etc, etc...

I am in the middle of doing a refresh/refurbishment right now, replacing some of the more aged parts including the awning, adding in a mounted TV with an updated entertainment system (the Concertone, ugh), etc.

So, there it is, we're going to pull it to our first site (a Jellystone with some friends), at the end of August!

Thanks!!

Welcome to the fourm from Southern Georgia. Take it from another southerner... look into getting some popup gizmos for your bunk ends. In the southern heat you will be glad you did. It will help keep the beating heat of the sun out of your bunk ends and help control the temps inside!! We had a popup before our camper and it made a 10 to 12 degree temperature difference on the interior with the gizmos. Good luck and happy camping!!

Thanks for the welcome guys!

tclcyl, I was hoping to avoid PUGs, however we have already experienced the 13.5k AC won't quite keep up on the hottest days... might have to!! We might get around it for a while because we are only two adults and one kid, so we can do without one of the bunks (turtled in), helping on the temps. Next year might have to do PUGs tho.

Welcome to FRF, from another 23SS owner. we've had ours since we bought it new in Nov., 2006.

PUGs are the #1 Hybrid mod and 99% of hybrid owners swear by them.
they also help keep the canvas clean and stain-free, along with darkening the ends for naps or late risers.

Reflectix in the tent windows also helps with temp regulation.
