I have a 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 and just picked up the 2015 233s . Love the floor plan of the 233s so much room. Pulls like a dream behind the Ram. Lost my gas mileage compared to the pop up but was excepted.

I often question the clothes/towel storage of floor plans. I prefer the the solaire 213x over the roo 233s.


The solaire has a user friendly front couch slide, TV on a counter vs losing an overhead cabinet in the roo.

The roo has a bench seat, no front storage, and minuscule kitchen.

Mr Roo/Camping Story

I just noticed you are towing a roo 233s with a short wheel base trailblazer/envoy variant. How many passengers, gear, 5.3 or inline 6?


I have a 5.3V8 2008 trailblazer max published tow 6100/real world max 4500.


I tow my hybrid with a k2500 sub 4 seater with max payload 2451lbs.

It towed OK with the sabb 4.2. 6cyl but the brake controller sucked could not get it set right so I bought a 2014 sliverado 5.3 with integrated brake controler worked great till the dealer did a recall update on it now the did beeps like crazy saying trailer disconnected then connected might go back to the Saab

I have been back and forth trying to decide. I am a woman who has towed a small Popup to camp with my kids for about 10 years. I would consider moving up to a small Roo if I could be more confident that I can drive and back up an actual Trailer! What to do?

Just takes a little practice. If you can backup the pup, it's about the same, just harder to see over it

You will find the Roo easier to back up.

There were things about my roo I loved and some things I wish were different. First, the kitchen was close to non-existent. I guess if you are coming from tent camping or maybe pop up camping it would be ok but we were working our way back down the ladder and found it painful. Second was a need for more / better storage without putting bunks out. Lastly, we live and camp in suburbs so the noise issue was problematic. If I had seen and had the opportunity to buy a 21SS I think I might still have it; We are back in a full hard sided TT (primarily due to #3). Happy shopping to those of you still looking ~ we did find our Roo to be a quality product and had no issues there at all.
