New to Rockwood Roo 19

Hello all, we just purchased ourselves a 2008 Rockwood Roo 19, leftover stock at an RV dealer here in Alberta Canada, still new just didn't sell. We sold our 1997 Jayco 10 foot popup tent trailer wanting the extra storage and our own shower/toilet. We have two children under the age of 3 and want to get them out for new experiences. We've taken the Roo out for two trips so far and love it. My tow vehicle is a 2007 Toyota 4Runner Sport V8, tows it with little fuss, I can't believe how light the Roo is.

I've found lots of valuable information on this forum so far, thanks to all that post their experiences. I do have a leaking front bunk seal/hinge area when towing in the rain (twice now) and my interior wood near the bunk is already starting to swell. Guess I'll be trying to get the seal fix kit.

Anyways, looking forward to many years of pleasure with this HTT, and just thought I would introduce myself as a newbie here.

as always, Welcome to the Roo Kroo!!!

be sure to post questions on the Expandable section here at FRF.

we love our Roo and have had only minor warranty issues with it.
make sure the dealer gets the full kit with frame and hinge.

Thanks for the welcome and the advice. I'm hoping to get this fixed in between the camping season and the first snow.... then I won't be out of the use of it and still able to get it winterized for storage, here's hoping that works out. Guess it depends on how long it takes to get the parts shipped to Canada... other than the little bit of water intrusion so far, great trailer... we love it.
