2021 Rockwood Geo Pro - Changes ?

I am starting to see the 2021 models show up on dealers WEB sites, anyway to know what changed from a 2020 model to 2021 ? Once things return to normal, were going to be purchasing the 19FD....

i have a '19. I just read on another thread that the '20 has a Go Power solar controller that pairs with your phone via bluetooth, whatever that is for.

I just saw an updated 2020 GEO PRO 19FD built in January with new pass through and reclining couch inside, which both item I would have liked.
See pass through and couch with buttons below:

That would be nice. You can fit a lot of crap under that sofa, but it's kind of a pain propping the sofa seat up with your head while you do so. It's nice when wife is around to hold it for me.

If not for the fact it is the only place you can store big things (I have my screen room, folding tables, patio mat, and a whole lot of other bulky things)in my model, that sounds like a nice idea.

Maybe some talented owner will come up with some drawers on sliders with original couch fascia. Since you suggested it, we will wait

we are just 2 weeks into getting know our 2020 19FD ; what do you what to know ? Never had a trailer before but this is all we could have wished for considering where we live and what we like to do.

That is correct. Now when you need to turn on the inverter from the bathroom - you can !

Just proves the old adage:

I haven’t come across that, unless it’s the wifi setup to phone you’re thinking of. 5 steps will get you to inverter switch. Better use for value could have been put to sound system.

Perhaps the new solar controller also functions as a battery monitor? You can then connect to it with your phone to see your usage, etc?

Wow. Love the pass through. Like Kris says the under the couch storage is a PITA. I ended up putting a nice “curtain” in and found 4 totes that fit, but it’s not ideal. Otherwise we couldn’t be happier, love the FD for us.

I gave up on trying to get stuff out from under couch by myself. Now I have wife hold it open, so I can use two arms to pull stuff out without chopping my head off. Prepping my trailer now for a trip to the shore, can't wait!

You should probably PM the member you're asking, instead of posting the same question twice.

Also new for '21

Other big change for '21 is the new 12v compressor fridge, with a larger wattage solar panel to help with electrical demands.

The wife and I aren't happy with the change from the white cabinets/woodwork to the light brown/tan wood. It's one of the things that we kept coming back to when comparing the GeoPro/E-Pro to other models like Jayco. With the white woodwork, it made the trailer feel much larger than it was.


It ultimately didn't stop us from ordering one, but it has lessened the excitement a bit despite the various other upgrades/updates they have done. Most likely we will paint things white to bring the light back into the trailer.
