Hi, Anyone ever take you bunk ends off or have the sides pop out? My canvas is inserted into a metal slot along the sides and I noticed that towards the bottom, the canvas has popped out. I am sure other manufactures are similar. There is a hard rubber end the end gets inserted into the metal slots. I am able to reinsert it but it won't always stay.
Why would you consider a hybrid?
Here were my reasons.
1. It is light. My tow vehicle at the time was a GMC Envoy with limited Towing capacity.
2. Under tow it is 22 ft, open it was equivelent to a 25ft Travel Trailer but had one more sleeping unit.
3. the Sleeping areas do not impact the living area. Find a travel trailer with a queen up front, a full bed in the rear, slide, dinette and sofa bed, stove, frig, bath with shower under 5000# and can be pulled with that type of TV.
8 years I Have no complaints. First RV.
As with all toys, If you do not take care of them, they will cost you.
Sheripoms, What is your Tow Vehicle? You get all of the creature comforts in a HTT as you would in the TT. Bathroom is accessible. Frig runs on battery and propane for electricity. If you are unsure of HTT vs TT, ask yourself some of these questions. Do you plan to winter camp or cold weather camp? Now the HTT open, is probably 25 - 26 feet in length. Can you get a comparable TT with a similar layout and as much space and at what cost? Price, Weight and Tow vehicle are all factors. When we started, I had an SUV, GMC Envoy which pulled the HTT fine but getting a TT was not an option due to weight restrictions. Where to buy? Who ever has the best price but the real question is who is going to service it especially when it comes to warranty issues or arguing over warranty issues. Does RVT and RV Wholesalers have a good reputation for taking care of their customers? I'd go local and see if they can match it or at least come close. Sometimes there are added benefits to going to your local Retail Center.
Obviously you haven't been on this forum too long because all of the Roo owners that I have seen here were very happy with them. I have a StarCraft with a similar layout and entering my 9th season and changed tow vehicles twice since. If and when I upgrade, I'll go to a 5th wheel. Maintenance is maintenance on any trailer. A skylight on a TT can leak just as much as a Skylight on a HTT. My maintenance has been relatively low. This year I am expecting to replace the brakes but that could be the same on a TT, maybe more so because the TT is heavier.
That looks like a good price but would definitely not jump into it right away. It is late but there are still RV shows around and shop for the RV show price too. I have a Starcraft which is a similar floor plan to the 21ss Roo and the slide with the dinette and sofa works the best for me because it just opens things up. If you need that extra bed like the 21 dk, I would consider the air mattress Hide a bed option listed on Forest River's website.
