Rockwood 232BHESP Model

I am seriously looking at the Rockwood 2280ESP but I like the slide out on the 232ESP model. Are there any owners who can share their experiences with either of these two models. I have looked at the travel trailers, but I just feel like the pop ups will give me the outdoor experience I am looking for.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

I bought a2018 ESP 232 and we are happy with that. You will appreciate the big deck, as we pack everything in boxes and you are on the road.
As a family of five the side slide gives you additional space.
We had a TT before and do not regret the downsize, actually I sleep since may in the popup, as it s cooler than our bedroom, it is like sleeping outside without Moskitos

We have a 2018 232esp and just completed a 1 week with the camping trip. There are 4 of us and the we use the slide out as a extra bunk. Both kids are teens so they don't want to sleep next to each other. We had plenty of room. We initially were looking at the 1910Esp but when we saw the 232 with its slide out, we were sold. The deck is a nice thing to have, just adds some length to the overall trailer so if you want to keep the compact thing....then maybe not the greatest.

Just be warned that the new 2019 ESP models have a white wood interior now. I don't like it.

Also I'm skipping the ESP models because they require the same outdoor storage as my travel trailer. I want to store a pop up indoors if needed.

Why would it be any different? If you can fit an ESP in your garage. Nothing in the manual that says they have to be stored outside. If I cleaned out my shop, mine would fit.

I was talking about a standard garage, not a work shop. With a 1 car garage at 12' X 20' or a 2 car garage at 18' X 20', not many ESP models will fit in a 20' long garage or even bigger 14' PUPs or 12' w/front storage box PUPs.

This necessitating storing them out doors. One of the reason why I'm going back to a PUP from a TT is so that I'm not limiting my housing options due to needing to store a TT on site. I'm not a fan of off site storage.
