Hello From St. Louis

Hello everyone we just bought a 2005 Rockwood Roo 233 we have had a 1993 coleman pop up since oct of 2007 and finally made the leap to the Roo. Before that we were tent campers for the 30 years we have been married.
Never thought i would own a trailer like this but it seems to be just waht we want easy set up but still feel like we are camping!

Welcome and congrats on your purchase! We just purchased a 223s and ready to do some camping. We thought about heading your way since we honeymooned in St. Louis almost 10yrs ago! Hubby is a McGwire fan - not my ideal honeymoon, but he was in heaven when I took him to two games.

Try a long weekend in Branson at Table Rock State Park. On the way down, stop off at Camping World by Springfield. It gets alot of our money, like Wal-Mart.

Colaws is also a great resource for good/used parts. A friend of mine had an older motorhome that parts were not available to purchase, but found them there. Hope you enjoy your camper!

So far we have 15 rigs that have made reservations.
It is just a bunch of us from around the country meeting in Branson MO. for some fellowship. Who know it may grow into another rally in another part of the country next time.
