Just put a down payment on a New Roo

Well, after contemplating a new truck, which is still a few years away, and a new camper further away, I decided to upgrade/downsize. The Roo 21BH is on the market and we are working on a deal for a 2015 Roo 183. Payments will remain about the same. The 183 is 1 foot shorter, and weighs about the same, but so much room with the fold out bunks instead of the bunkhouse. It is dealer stock, so we won't miss any camping. Wish we bought this unit first, but we weren't sure about hybrids. Julie is so excited that she can bring a friends or friends now.

Working on the finances and hopefully selling the current one and not trading it in. Pictures will come soon enough.

Congrats! I always enjoy seeing people go from a hard side to a hybrid just as we are. It seems the vast majority do the opposite, which I completely understand as well.

I am really excited about some of the unique assets that hybrids offer.

Hybrids definitely are fantastic family campers! Enjoyed our 21SS for many years.

Hope it comes together for you and Happy Camping ensues!

I curently have a Roo 21BH, which has bunks in the back and flip out canvas bunk in the front. Only disadvantage of the 183 is our inability to turtle.

Credit union came through and we got the loan. Just about the same payment.
