2007 roo 23b advice

Hi, new to the forum. I have been looking at purchasing a used 2007 roo 23b. It looks well maintained. I currently own a pop up and am not real familiar with hybrids yet. Does anyone have experience with a 2007 Roo? Is there anything I need to be aware of or look out for?
Thanks in advance for any advice!

We purchased a NTU 2007 Roo 232 this spring after having had a PUP for 10 to 12 years. It is similar, though not exactly like the 23b. Ours has been great! Read the Rockwood Roo threads carefully so you know what issues are common with these rigs and how to identify them. One of the biggest issues is water seepage on the bunk ends. Check the bottom of the bunks, both interior and exterior, specifically the hinge area, to see if it has water damage that weakens that wood and laminate. If there is no damage, you're looking at a well maintained camper. There are modifications to help minimize any further water damage, but you need to start with a solid bunk. There are people on this forum with a TON more experience with these matters than I have, hopefully they will chime in here. We absolutely love our Roo 232!

We've had our 2007 23SS for nearly 9 years.
It's been great and we've had very little water seepage.
But I take great care in staying on top of the bunk ends.
They are the most important thing to check out on any used hybrid.

I have a 2006 23b and the front bunk is the only real issue to check. But as others have said, check for water damage on any tt as anything could have happened since new

Just cause it " looks well maintained", doesn't mean that there aren't hidden problems.
Focus on the bunk door areas, especially around the hinge. Check the seals around the bunk door frame.
And as on any TT, check the roof and flooring.

If you do discover a bubbly wall or soft floor, move on.. i wish i had. Water damage repair is much more involved than i ever thought to do correctly.
