We have not had a single issue other than me ripping the tv antenna off with a now branch. I would recommend Rockwood and especially the Minni Lite series to anyone. You will pay a bit more for it vs others but the quality and higher end finishes were well worth it IMO.


Anyone around the Jasper area want to get together, we will be going to Martin Dies Jr State Park the 9th-14th.


I just had helper springs added to the rear of the truck. I had to counter the level kit just a bit. Now I have a 3" lift all around. As soon as it needs new shoes I'll go 33 or 35"

Sounds like a poor excuse for a sloppy made trailer manufacturer.

My trailer only had one issue when new- the water heater bypass valve opened itself. I called my dealer, he explained what to look for, problem solved.

I have since then shown two other new buyers where the valve is when they experienced the same problem ( not hot water with water heater working)

All 3 were different brand trailers.

Due to how sloppy some are built I have often recommended new buyers to take their first trip to a park nearest the dealer, staying there a few days, write down all the issues, take it right back to the dealer and have issues repaired before making a real trip.

Thanks for this thread......we have had a Allegro Class A, Puma Bumper Pull years past and currently have a old 5th wheel at the lease we would NOT take on the road.

Momma is retiring this May after 30+ years of teaching 3rd graders and I plan to hopefully retire this coming November.

We are diligently searching/researching for a Class A, at MINIMUM 35' with at least 3 slides. Our goal is either a "rear" pusher or Gas (lowest miles possible) that will hold us 2 Humans, 3 weenie dogs and Myla my Catahoula. Momma already has our tow vehicle, Wrangler Soft Top...so when we find the right unit we are set!

NO way we will or can buy new...so still looking for that "best buy," Lord there are plenty to confuse us? Maybe someday soon we can post "our" retirement buddy on this thread and join some of you at a "distant" stop and relax place??

I'm dang sure getting tired and we are ready to hit the road.....

2017 Rockwood Roo 23IKSS. We've been in a large pop-up for years and weren't willing to give up the tent sleeping. This dude gives us the best of both worlds. We get to sleep in a tent with the ease of "setting up" a travel trailer. No floorspace wasted on bedrooms that only get used a few hours a night. Makes a 22' coach live like a 32' coach. Really cool!

I've owned 2 bumper pulls and I'm currently looking for a new one. Last weekend I spent all day Sunday looking at everything available at the Dallas RV Show. Went home very confused, so I got on the internet and read everything I could about how they are built.
After looking all the different manufactures I've decided on a Jayco. I spent today at a dealer looking at all their different models and I have narrowed it to several different lengths and models. I believe it possible to purchase a new one at 20% off List Price.

If you have a bumper pull trailer and are having problems with it swaying.
Add a 4 point sway bar and it will help dramatically.
I recommend the following: http://www.equalizerhitch.com/

This is the one I use: http://www.andersenhitches.com/Produ...-brackets.aspx

Some folks with really heavy tongue weights and really soft suspensions have issues distributing enough weight to the front axle. The loaded tongue weight on mine is around 700 pounds. This hitch works superbly for me and the anti-sway is amazing!

Bpa556 look up gizmo for pop ups and invest in a set. We also have a hybrid and in Texas the beds can get pretty warm but the gizmo works really well. We also use a reflectix insulation that you can cut to fit in the windows of the beds

Thanks, I may do that. I had the reflectix cutouts in our pop-up. They do make a big difference! I never got a set of gizmos for it, but I'll probably give them a go on the Roo.

We've had the pop-up for years (2005 Jayco 1206) and we do love it. I almost hate to sell it. Wife told me she'd have no part of a hard-sided camper because she prefers the tent sleeping. Lucky for her, she can have the best of both worlds!

I really like the fact that we're not "wasting" floorspace on 2 bedrooms that only get used a few hours per night. Plus, we'll now be able to just pull over and sleep on the fold-out couch on long trips. Win-win. The only negative is a substantial decrease in towing fuel economy vs. the pop-up!

We've been hanging out at Martin Dies Jr State Park for three days now. The first two were awesome! Nice and quiet and near empty. Now, it's all but at capacity. Oh well, an okay day camping beats the crud out of a good day working anytime!

Man I can't wait to go get my camper from the lease next weekend.

That looks like a really nice park.

We've been to a dozen or so. Hitting up three new to us State Parks in as many months. That's a good idea though! This Park is awesome but they do not have full hookups. Our spot 85 on the South side of the park has the most space and best view by far!

Look up wholesale price with online dealers. Add $2000 to get it here. You should be able to get within a $1000-$1500 of that.

I took your advice/request one step further. We now have a YouTube Channel where we will vlog (outside of my comfort zone) our trips and everything RV.

Within the next week or so I will be installing a complete solar system on Seymour our RV. Getting him all ready to do a little boondocking/dry camping. Will post a link here when the video is ready.

I'm going to start on the solar install by setting up the new charge controller. Will remove the display and remote mount it in the RV to better monitor available power and usage.

3 of the 4 solar panels arrived! After I get my ears lowered, I'll be on the roof getting it going!!! I'm so ready.

On a different note, my new bed cover came in. Took all of 20 minutes to install. Now our generator and cooler will be out of sight and mind as well as out of the weather.

Nice. What's the wattage? How are you running the wiring.

I want to add solar and wind to mine.

It will be 480W for now and watch for the video part 2 coming up next week on how we ran the wires. Now for the not so glamorous part and the real work, editing video.

I have a question.

For those that have LED rope lights on your awning, did you just use the track on the spring tube? And do you leave it in place, or remove it every time?



I am wanting to put some on the camper, where the awning attaches. Like a permanent mount... Use the tape, then silicone it in place. Not sure how to wire it in though.

That way, I could use the lights if it's too windy for the awning to be extended.

Spending the weekend at Lake Whitney state park. The weather is perfect. Lows in the 50s, highs in the 70s.

This is a really nice park.

Well, I finally had time to complete the Install Part 1 video and it is uploading now. I am having to do it through my phones hot spot so it may take an hour and a half or so but I will post the video as soon as it is uploaded.

We Currently have an 04 36 ft keystone Montana, what I like most about it is the front living and rear bed room. It has a ton of storage, pulls great, and stays warm in the winter.
It is not a "family friendly" trailer with only one real bed. The couch folds out and sleeps ok. We only have fur babies so it works great for me and the wife.

2 ac's, 50 gallons of fresh water, a "busted" 5500 generac onboard genny never agian will I buy a generac.

After looking at all the new ones on here I want a new one.

Best advice I can give is keep good tires on them and keep them full of air, read sidewall for proper air pressure. Most of the new tires are good for about 5k miles unless you upgrade.

We love to go to the coast. Lots of great RV parks right on the beach.
We will be going to Palo Duro before it gets way too hot.

Onan diesel is the way to go.


Remember a RV is one the few vehicles that operate at near 100% weight capacity 100% of the time.

We just got back from Caddo Lake State Park last weekend and have 3 more state parks reserved in the next month (Purtis Creek, Martin Creek, and Tyler). We try to go every other week or so.

Can't really hear you over it.
I prefer no music except maybe when your doing the fast forward action.
Still, great job
