Looked at 2 new 233s today.

Well, on my way home from work, I decided to stop by an RV Dealer right off the highway. I saw 2 Roos, and they happened to be 233s. All I can say, what an incredible difference over my 21BH. The UVW of the 233s is what the CAT scales say my 21BH is loaded (including water, which I don't carry). Tempting... (Weight Police, disregard my thoughts).

I do like, what appears to be some new things. Well, at least to me.

1) Outside TV mount...for those hot Red Sox/Patriots/Bruins games.
2) LEDs under awning
3) Interior LEDs
4) Antifreeze Input (has a hose connection, still puzzles me how it works)
5) Much better labeling of drains
6) Outdoor little countertop for the grill rail
7) Scissor stab jacks instead of the ones on my Roo (looks more heavy duty)
8) Glass top stove cover

But, it is not 100% what I want. I want the 15k AC (not sure what these had) and I like no oven option with cabinet instead (both had ovens). I like the new ovenless stoves, with the glass top and flush with the countertop.

The 2015 233s that I ordered from the factory can be set up that way. The oven is an option, go figure. I believe the 15k A/C is also an option if I remember correctly.

Stick the hose in a jug of antifreeze and there should be a switch that says 'Winterize'. The water pump will suck the antifreeze into the campers water lines. Just make sure the water heater bypass is set.

Went back today with the DGF and her daughter. I guess it comes with a hose to screw into the connection, or easy to make your own. It says there is a valve to switch.

The DGF loves it. But we agreed, need the truck first.

15k A/C is an undisclosed option on Roo's. In fact, my 21SSL has the 15k air. It was only like $200 or so for the upgrade.

worth every penny.
