New 233S owner on the block

We took delivery a week ago on a new 233S. The trailer is great & just what my wife wanted. Only one problem at delivery was that manufacturer had put the wrong cables on the side bed. They has put the cables for a front bed on the side bed. Dealer called and ordered new ones and we have since picked them up & put the proper cables on. Now we're just trying to figure out where to put things in the new trailer & hoping for some nicer weather so we can get out & give it a try.

Congratulations on your purchase. We can hardly wait for the snow to go to get out again in ours. If you have any questions don't hesitate asking. We will try our best to answer them as to what we have done, etc.

I asked the question about the TP holder on RV.net & the best answer I got was to put it on the inside of the door of the bathroom vanity. I think that is going to be the best place for us to put it.

Well we got the TP holder but as of yet we haven't put it anywhere. Placing the holder in the vanity will definitely work for us too. Now the paper towel holder was just way too kitsch to even think of mounting, so it made a hasty retreat from the trailer.

Welcome RBQ,
We have our Roo now for 5 days! It took us an afternoon to set it up and get our stuff aboard. What options do you have in your Roo RBQ? What colors did you choose?

Side note:
TP is over rated..just not use it....

We have yet to figure this out either...will check out the vanity idea.

Smokyroo,
Since we bought the trailer from a dealer who had it on his lot since last fall we ended up with the oak/sage interior. Options are: power front jack, gas oven, heated holding tanks, power awning, outside grill, spare tire & cover. As part of our deal that I worked with the dealer he installed the 6 volt batteries as I specified that I wanted those due to the fact that we do a lot of boondock camping. We have X-chocks to chock the tires. We also had an equalizer hitch installed as well. We already had a prodigy brake controller in the truck, so didn't need to get that.
Wish I could say that we most everything situated in the trailer, but we're still working on it.

I liked the oak and sage...we went with cherry vineyard. Our kids are still younger and we felt the darker vineyard seats would show less wear and stains from spilled drinks and so forth. Oak and sage was our next color combo we liked...went back and forth on it....

We had all camping stuff ready to go from the other camper...we took a day getting it all in place. If you are starting fresh it can be overwhelming, but you tend to refine your needs and pick up things along the way, often when you are using it away from home...
