Depends on the brand. I ordered a 2014 Roo 233s in February and it was done a couple weeks ago. I pick it up soon! I have also seen other models with 2014's on the lots at some online dealers.

Anyone know what changes/improvements, if any, there are in the Roo line from 13 to 14? 25RS if it matters. I ordered a 13 but am getting a 14. TIA...

Hi Cosmobug,

I am not sure when the switch happens with different features, but I know that mine is a 2013 with a 2014 title/registration. I would inquire with your dealer.

I would think that is improper. It should be titled by model year (MY), not by date of manufacture, right?

You're right, I apologize, my Roo is a 2014 model that is the exact same as a 2013 as far as I know (besides maybe the side graphics). I chose Taylor Sand and Hickory cabinets as my theme colors which was/is also available on 2013's. I am working on finals the next couple of weeks and my brain is on information overload so forgive my sloppy typing.

I am not sure what upgrades or colors will be available on other 2014's.

Hi all,

We are a Roo newbe and just got ours last Friday. We ordered a 2013 and got a 2014. new upgrades are the awning LED lighting instead of the Yellow outdoor light and some other subtle changes I can't recall. All good improvements. We can't wait to hit the road!

Interesting Jaws, do you also have a power awning?

Nice, I got the manual awning so ill have to live with the orange light. Or put a 12 volt access close to one of the awning arms.

Ordered my Flagstaff 8528ckws in Jan. for a May 1st pickup. It was put on line in mid April and is a 2014. Dealer told me to order a 2013 early for late pickup and would automatically get a 2014 for 2013 price in case there was a price increase. Good dealer.
Haven't had much time with it yet, but did notice led lights on awning. I was told at factory that this is standard now on the Dometic power awning. It still has the outside flood and yellow porch lights. You can light this thing up at night like a Christmas tree.They also cleaned up the control panel so it contains all of the rocker switches. No more switches mounted next to it as if it was an afterthought. Every light inside and out is an led, think some interior lights on 2013 were not.
However, they still have the same poor oem tires with no optional replacement available. The LPG tanks are still poorly mounted and hard to work with. The center roof vent in the FW needs a ladder to use and a power vent is not offered as an option.
I'm sure I might find other lesser items as time goes on.
In short, some things improved, others ignored. Baby steps!

Ken

Thanks for the answers! LED lighting is a nice improvement, esp the awning lights...tired of chasing burnt bulbs on my 2010 Mini Lite.
