That's really funny. I drove through there yesterday while on the way to take pictures at Stagecoach RV Park for some forum members.

We're over at America's Best Campground in Branson. Just finished up a Fulltime Families rally.

Head on out to St. Louis tomorrow.

2019 Roo 233S

We just received our 2019 Roo 233S over the weekend. We got it ready for next weeks first trip! Way much roomier than our last popup! No modifications yet but waiting for first trip and approval from the boss.
We have has so much rain over the last couple weeks that I tried and failed to park it on the side of the house. I just burred it in the mud. I guess concrete is the next thing to come

370 Lakeside in St. Peters. We had reservations at the Casino Queen RV Park in East St. Louis (yes, a rough part of town but the RV park itself felt fine). But some friends are headed to 370, so we switched up to meet up with them over there.

Congrats and welcome to the forum. I hope your family thoroughly enjoys the new Roo. Be sure to “season” the tent ends before your first trip.

This has all been done over a three week period.
Installed Vortex replacement fan in the bathroom today.
Installed a power strip on the side of the upper cabinet by the TV using 3M Command strip Velcro.
Bought refrigerator retainer bars.
Mounted an articulated arm TV mount.
Added some reinforcing 2x2" in the upper storage bins to allow cutting & refitting the angled panels that cover wiring. Now those panels are installed square vice angled for more storage space.
Installed AstroTurf carpet on the steps all in one piece making soft risers using metal strips. Dog would not go up or down the bare aluminum steps. Would not go up an aluminum or wood ramp I tried either ;(
Installed a large US NAVY RETIRED sticker color matched to the back of the trailer (eBay).
Added a battery powered LED light to the upper bunk.
Bought a couple carpet runners on closeout to add carpet to the bare floors.
Added double rubber bands to the vertical lift doored storage cabinets. Attach those to 3M command hooks placed on the ceiling to hold those doors open.
Bought an aluminum ladder for the bunks, cut 4.5" off to make it fit at the correct angle.
Bought another 25' of potable water hose.
Bought a right angle sewer attachment.
Bought a water flow pressure regulator and right angle piece.
Bought a pair of potable water filters.
Bought a new set of wheel chocks.
Cut several 2x6 blocks for use under the stabilizers.
Bought "Lego" wheel levelers.
Bought 3 packs of RV toilet paper.
Added a memory foam topper to the master bed and bunks.
Mounted a hanging door organizer with hooks behind the toilet for toiletries.
Removed the thin plastic shower curtain and added basic metal shower curtain loops along with a fabric curtain.
Adjusted (bent) the shower curtain rollers to freely move.
Installed a roof vent cover.
Bought a 50 amp to 30 amp dogbone.
Bought a shorty 12" screw on to the TT inlet 30 amp to 15 amp dogbone to use 20/15 amp 12AWG cables without using the heavy 10AWG 25' cable with dogbone adapter for use at home.
Cleaned up & replaced handles on a pair of old aluminum stablizers I had been given.

Being a retired Navy vet, he had all this done before sunrise in one day.

I have done something to the TT or bought something for it everyday.
Being a submariner, I'm used to making the most out of small spaces.
