Picked up a 2006 Roll-A-Home King Size Pop-up camper.

Having had several, including a Bunkhouse and a KwiKamp, was really impressed with this one.:) A little heavier than the others by maybe 40 pounds:( , but has everything off the ground when opened:o . Bed is huge - king size:D . It sets up about as easy as the others, and is a little easier to stow;) . No canvas covers when towing - all fiberglass. Can get to the cargo bay easily just by lifting the side when towing:) , and lifting a panel when parked. Really a nice rig, tows easily:) , but cuts into the fuel mileage:eek: .

But the dressing room being off the ground when the tent is up is a really GREAT feature.

Harry,

I agree this is a great Trailer. You are probably running 40 lbs more because of the king slide. Mine runs about 300 empty. Wish I had the king sometimes.

I have a 2002 Standard size Rolla-Home and really liked it behind the trike but sold the trike and went back to two wheels and bought a smaller KwikKamp and like it so far. Gonna sell RollaHome in spring.

I got my Roll A Home in October of this year and loved it so much went back and bought out the business!
Nothing personal, but I was really upset when I heard Larry sold out and the business moved to Okie. They're really nice trailers.
Good luck with your business.

Trades? Why in the world would you want to? I hear of people with 100,000 plus miles on em! I guess they're hard to wear out. I do have people contact me pretty often wondering if I know where any used ones are. I bet it wouldn't be hard to find a buyer. As for in the paint & body business for 20 years, I've been in it for closer to 36-37 years. Just been at this location for 20. Flashy? Definately doable!

Larry Burmesch took in trades of any brand. He never seemed to have any trouble reselling them.
We're on our fifth camper. It's nice to upgrade once in a while.

You will love it! I have the standard size and it seems roomy enough so the king should be luxury. Just get some padding for the edge of the bed. I think I saw someone slit a pool noodle lengthwise and use that as a pad. The standard bed doesn't have that rail so I don't have the pad.

The biggest downside to the Roll-A-Home is that if you camp around other people you will draw a crowd and everyone will want to look at it and know where you got it.

I have a 1968 combi-camp, but after looking at all the others looks like the rollahome is the best to go to. Will be looking at buying after I retire in March. Great looking camper and love the way to access storage.

There are alot of good ones out there! We shopped for over a year before we finally made the decision to go with the Roll A Home. Billy really like the off ground dressing area as well as how it pulled. Friends of ours have Bunkhouse, Aspen ect... havent seen one I didnt like. I can tell you the people that we have talked to love their Roll A Homes! All the reviews I have came across have had good things to say and we plan to keep that going!
We got to spend some time with Larry (previous owner) and he believed in a quality product and we will continue in that direction. Billy is a paint and body man of 30 plus years and I am a Quality Engineer of 20 plus years so.... we will strive to maintain and exceed a quality product!
You will have alot of fun shopping and reviewing campers and good luck to you in retirement!P^

Thanks Sheila, the old 68 does fairly well but is covered in lite weight canvas so always have to cover in rain and no storage. Was looking at leesure-lite but do not like the access to storage even though the price is just a little less. Do not mind paying for quality made items. Is there a long waiting list for your campers?

Me i'm not in to a lot of frills but the better half might want some, I just like being up off ground and setting to put pants on. Too broken down to be laying down and trying to get dressed. I'll give call when were ready, have to wait for all retirement papers to clear to access 401, who knows how long that will take, know one that left last year and took 15 weeks before she got her first retirement check. The OPM does not get in any hurry but they sure won't pay interest either. At least we still have the old 68 to use till we can get everything taken care of. Hope you all do very well in your business. Quality always sells best.

I'm new to moto and am shopping for a nice tent trailer and am torn between the Rollahome and the leesure lite excell. I've never seen a Rollahome in person which is my biggest hesitation. Plus I don't know the ins and outs of buying out of state and dealing with California DMV.

Hoot, there is nothing too it. If you buy New, you get a Certificate of Origin from the dealer and a temp lic or your receipt that shows you just bought it, to get back to your home state. Go on in to the CA DMV and say Howdy I just bought this and hand them all the paper work you got, sign on a couple of dotted lines and write the check. Your done.
Buy used pretty much the same way. Have who ever you bought from sign the title, take it in to the DMV with a check.

Hey Hoot!
In and outs of buying out of state is a breeze!

When I was researching campers I came down to the same two choices,and chose the Roll a Home because of the storage From what I understand,storage in the Leesure light is all in the living area when set up.Roll a Home storage is all under the bed,and is accessible when the tent is not set up.

I think a forum on their site would be great also. As a likely future customer within the next 12 months, I would recommend a few other items to add to their web site also.

More you tube videos showing:

A walk around inside, outside, underneath, with details of access to interior storage from inside when set up to add to the existing videos on the site for the wide bed model.

Add setup, take down, and above "walk around when set up" videos for the standard model.

This would add 4 more videos to the site but would give people looking, a much better idea of both trailers and how they work. I saw a really nice walk around/inside outside video for a leesurelite and it really helped me to get an idea of how the whole thing looked and worked from all angles in and out.

After camping this last week at the LBL in the rain and floods, I have came to the conculsion that the only campers to have are the ones with raised dressing room floors, aka- Roll-a Home- lesurelite and the old combi-camp. The only ones that didn't leak. Shelia you are on the right track with your model. I have an old combi-camp and will be changing soon to get more sleeping room with your model. Just waiting for the gov to transfer money over to my IRA. Oh crap the gov is broke:eek: Ya all ride safe and be safe.

Got in last night with our new Rollahome camper, boy did it pull great. Friend here is thinking of getting one and came over to see it setup, was amazed as to how easy the setup was an how much room there is. His wife was really impressed as to how you can access cargo with it up or down. I probably should have got the a/c sleeve since its hotter than blue blazes here, maybe I'll have Sheila send me one. Anyway I think I'm in love again only this time with a camper, now to get my leg better so we can have a few dates.:D Anybody coming thru Southern Illinois and wants to take a gander give shout or just show up, 209 e broadway st.

Just got home with mine. Picked it up in Hobart with my brother and nephew. Camped 2 nights. First night got rain and wind no problem it was also hot so hooked up a airconditioner through the a/c sleeve worked fine heavy wind caused me to get up in the middle of the night to tighten down the sleeve. Only problem on the whole trip was my air mattress I was using on the floor; it ruptured led to a uncomfortabloe night. Next day got a thermarest and slept great at KOA in Siligman, Az. Just like Gary really impressed how easy it went up and down even in a strong wind.

I've been putting the foam tubes you get for insulating pipes on the floor supports. I get 2 for about $2.20. I know they will not last that long but I have used them three nights camping and numerous times setting up to get comfortable with the procedure and they're still doing fine. :)

The Floor supports are he roof rack bars. He does this to protect them fro damage on hard surfaces, cement.. gravel and such. I am going to look into the same stuff as I have just been using a folded tarp for this…

My new one has rubber on the supports, wouldn't think they would need more protection. To each thier own, I will use foam on the bed slides.

Gary I have the rubber supports also. But figured it was easier and cheaper to use foam tubing as a sacrificial protector. They go on in a couple of seconds, weigh almost nothing and store easily.

lytle1gw
07-18-2011, 06:34 AM
Good idea, but if its going to rain they'll be wet to store. But then thats what garbage bags are for. Maybe I'll redo my thinking.
So as the heat lets up I'll be adding all the extra wiring and stuff I want to do to mine, just ain't doing it in triple digit temps. Don't think the wife would appreciate it in middle of living room.:D Did that once with bike 40 yrs ago and still hearing about it. Have a blast with your new camper.

Why not put a tarp under the foam to kep it dry, and a rubber mat under that to protect the tarp and .. and ...
The rubber is there to take the scrapes and I use it for that . There is always going to be wear and tear and just not worth wearing two in case the first one breaks LOL
My rubber is holding up pretty well and Im a big guy to walk in and out on them . They will be fine and you can always replace if needed as not complicated so why overkill ?
Do you wash and wax your camper everytime it goes outside also ?

I don"t want to beat this dog to death but as I mentioned earlier we camped during a hard rain and I just popped them off the rails knocked gunk off them and threw them in the trailer. The foam doesn't seem to absorb any water.

Dang I did sound meaner than I meant LOL
Really if you want to build a shed to have you camper set up while out on the road Im sorry its your thing . I was try to say in a nicer way is that the rubber seems to stand up just fine and I dont see the need to protect the protector. Also the rubber on the supports may stick to things better that the foam and not allow movement as much


I did try one of those foam things on the rail to get down from the sleeping area in my Roll-A-Home and it did help but I forgot it somewhere the first time I took it out :confused:

Sheila I checked your site and really liked the changes you have made it'd much easier to navigate and your map was up. On my recent trip of 18 nights spent 17 in the Rollahome and loved it. Spent last night in Primm Nevada at Buffalo Bills because the KOA in Vegas was charging more than the hotels and I missed the Rollahome.

Primm has one casino that has the bonnie and clyde car on display!
Still a tad warm out that way but a nice cool 71 at night here as the heat wave seemed to break for a couple of days.
Sad but campgrounds are almost as costly as the hotels out there. Try camping at lake mead its fun if you go the north shore road and traval a couple of hours to get out of range of the touries

Since Shelia is sending a whole bunch of rain towards us I think I'll put the Roll-A-Home up and test it for rain worthlyness. Suppose to get up to 6 inches so will be a good test.:D

I can attest to the rain worthiness of a Roll a Home.
Last year,we were on the Washington coast for a weekend.One of the days it rained very hard all day and into the night along with some heavy winds.The winds were heavy enough that I felt the need to tie it down.
By late evening there were a few light drips at the seams,but otherwise we stayed dry.
I have since resealed the seams,but have not been in that much rain.

Just picked up my "new to me" 2010 Roll-A-Home wide model with a Add a room and awning.
Picked it up in Rock Island/ East Moline IL and towed it behind a Kia Sedona back to North Carolina over 14 hours. It towed great and hardly even realized it was back there, except that I was paranoid as all get up because I knew it was back there.

It did a well through the winds of Northwestern Illinois, the rough roads around Indianapolis, Indiana the farm lands of central Ohio the mountains, twists and turns of the West Virginia turn pike, the mountains of Virginia and finally the less than exciting final miles into North Carolina.

Today my wife and I set it up together, to start to learn about the process and the camper itself. The camper went up pretty well and only found one small issue that I will need to look into a little closer on the camper itself. The storage access door appears to be slightly bowed and exerts pressure on the slide out portion making it a little difficult to get it fully extended.

The Awning was simple to install, the add a room, went up with a minimum of fussing and cussing once I figured out the process. We did have a piece left over that we can't figure out where it goes. A slightly bend piece of non adjustable pipe, with two open clamps on the ends. It was stored in the bag with the Awning poles, but none of the photos of the Awning that I have found on the internet contain this piece. I think it has something to do with the add a room, but the instructions that came with the unit, leave a little to be desired and are vague to say the least.

First impressions are very favorable on this unit. It tows great, it is very roomy, set up is fairly easy despite the vague instructions.

Very happy so far.

Hi Dennis,
We have already communicated about the mystery pole!
For others interested, it is a pole that goes between two of the inside bows to add strength to the roof area. It was an option with the previous owner of the company. We do not have it listed as an option but if requested we can supply them.

The bowing of the storage access door is something we found early on when we bought out the business. When the gas shocks are installed, the pressure of them pushing up on what we call the mid section is what was causing this. We are now re enforcing that area with aluminum angle. This has eliminated that problem. If you want dimensions and placement of these pieces, send us an email and we will be glad to give you that information.
Welcome to the forum and Happy camping!

Welcome to the forum and Happy camping!

I'm curious why you don't include the "mystery pole". It came included with ours when we bought it from Larry.
We once spent a day in some very heavy rains and had water puddling in the canvas until we figured out what the "mystery pole" was for. Not really necessary when it doesn't rain,but I wouldn't be without it in a heavy rain.

I'm assuming you are talking about the storage access door from the inside that is the bed? Ours only came with a pole to hold it up.

Jeff,
When we bought our roll a home, it was not included so for awhile we did not know it existed. Last fall a rah owner had one and told us what it was. We have stayed in ours in some pretty heavy rain without the pole and had no problems but it does add more stability and arch in the roof to deflect the water. We have recently started to include it in all the units. :)

The access door is the same as you stated. One pole still holds it up.

How is the storage space in the RAH compared to the Bunkhouse? We have the bunkhouse, but feel theres too much space. We tend to pack light, even when we splurge on comforts. Probably the heaviest object we would take is the small AC in a milk crate that the AC fits in for transport and sits onto when attached to the bunkhouse AC well.

After carrying more than I usually do in the bunkhouse, It didn't feel right. We would rather pack less. Im looking at RAH for two reasons- easier to set up by one person, dressing area is off the ground. Im also looking to have a bit lighter camper if possible. My wife and I do motocamp with the bunkhouse, but there are often times I would go solo. Because its way too big for one person in my opinion, when traveling solo, I tend to either stay in motels or hammock camp. There were times where I wish I had a smaller, easier to set up camper. Because of this, Im even looking at Leesure lite- it seems like the no frills version of RAH with less packing space.

Any thoughts from those who have had these campers?

Sheila
08-01-2012, 06:26 PM
We pack our ac and milk crate in the storage area of the roll a home just fine.
You have 18.5 cubic feet of storage and can pack up to 12" high in the cargo area.

There are two models of the roll a homes. The standard which will weight approx 50lbs lighter than the widebed model. 325 and 385.

We manufacture these campers so dont just take my word on them. Others will give their opinions! We do have a facebook page if you would like to post on there!

Harpo,

Just returned from Millers Trailer Sales in Pennsylvania. Rented a Leesure Lite for an overnight trial. It was really outstanding.
I just sold my Bunkhouse. Reasons? Very difficult to put up by myself, even harder to get down and not pinch the screens or tent in the support bars. Didn't like the idea of the dressing area being on the ground, in the mud. Yes, we had the carpet and the tarp under it, but when it rains, the mud and water run over the carpet and then when you put it away, it is in the trailer. While the storage area is usually dry, you are folding up a wet tent into the same area as the mattress and I've talked to many users and no matter what the factory says, EVERYONE I talked to complained about wet mattresses. But, I think the major problem for me was how hard and time consuming for one person to put up and take down.

I had never used a leesure lite before. Patsy, co-owner of Millers, said "unlatch the top, and lift it all the way over." I did and withing 30 seconds, the tent portion was up. Oh, I did have to flip the skirting over, but it is cosmetic and took all of 10 seconds. Putting it away? The instruction are clear... "Just tuck everything in as best you can and close the lid. Don't pinch anything", that's it.And everything just tucks in, no pinching involved. It did take maybe 45 seconds to put it away. It towed perfectly, and the new ones come with 100% LED lighting.

But, you really can't put too much faith in what people say. Your needs are different. If you are in the area, contact Millers and rent one. Then decide. A little more expensive but so much more camper for the money. And easy means you will use it more.

Have fun, JeffP^

We have the wide bed model of RAH because we like a lot of bed space to keep from kicking each other. The standard size would be great for solo camping, we had a cambi camp which is like the leesure lite and didn't like storage space it had. All in all the RAH gets thumbs up for ease of use and quailty of manufacturing, and can't say enough of the great customer service.P^

Howdy Jeff, I looked at Leesure lite and didn't like the inability to get into the storage under the bed. The box in front is not much, and it was hard to shift weight and worry about tongue weight, after going to the store or having to add stuff. There are times we would stop just to make some lunch or take a break. You can't always have whatever you need in the bike or in the small storage pod on the front of the trailer. As for closing up a Roll a Home by yourself, I used a collapsible Awning pole and didn't have too much trouble that way or the few times somebody came by and offered help, I had them steady the pole while I tucked it all in.
We were always very happy when others came over to look inside and check out the under bed storage, and how easy it was to pull by hand out of a camp spot to hook back up to the bike. " Twice with my wife pushing at the back, and me pulling at the hitch."

later all

We were always very happy when others came over to look inside and check out the under bed storage, and how easy it was to pull by hand out of a camp spot to hook back up to the bike. " Twice with my wife pushing at the back, and me pulling at the hitch."

later all

We use the widebed support poles to hold up the lid while tucking in the tent.
We now send a small pole about 14 -16" with the standard models. Customer feedback! Great source of information:)

I believe that the RAH is the easiest camper to get to the storage area on the market. My wife can open and close the top to get to the storage area without difficulty and she is no weight lifter by any means. As far as closing the camper for travel I have found that if you leave the front and rear screens slightly un-zipped it lets the trapped air out and folds up easier. I have closed up by myself several times and had no problems and have never used a support pole of any kind.

I agree 100%. My wife would look like she was doing a dead lift to get into the storage, but didn't ask for help from me.
I never thought to use the wide-body slide out supports. I had the awning support pole in the corner and ...Hey what if I... and it worked. And nothing ripped or broke.

It just holds the lid up while you are tucking the tent in. We use it when we think about it. Alot of times at the rallys or if someone comes by the shop to look at a rah, I am the one that opens and closes the camper for them. Most of the time I dont think about using the support! :)

You should design and build a single version, small for one person that tows at about 225 lbs for us solo riders. I'd be all over that.

We do have the single version that is sweet and really fast to setup.:) It weighs in about 325 empty. We are always looking for ways to reduce the weight but as you said "design"... Design equals new molds... Molds more money... We are still small but growing all the time. At some point in time in the future maybe we can design something lighter without sacrificing quality and space.

We have alot of solo riders that use the standard model roll a home and are happy campers! We actually have couples that get the standard model as well.

Thank you for considering us and your input!:):)

newer models have improvements since Shelia and Billy took over prooduction, better lighting and improved bar placement for water shedding just to name a couple. I have a 2011 model and the 2012 has improvments over it that are appreciated by owners of the newer models. It has been a learning process for them, but they listen to customers and improve where needed to make the best units available.P^

A couple questions…

What are the grommets on tabs along the top seam of the side of the Standard RAH over the sleeping area for? I understand the zipper above the door for the tarp…

Does the RAH have the capability (if not now, future?) of being able to be elevated to stand up on the rear (with supports) as to store it against a wall to save floor space? (like Leesure lite and Kenyon trailers)

I think Ive pretty much narrowed down my bunkhouse replacement with the RAH… maybe next year?

lytle1gw
08-07-2012, 05:46 PM
The grommets are for heavy wind conditions to tie out to stakes. Don't know about future plans to store on end, right now it is not available. Have to let Shelia answer any future plans for RAH. Too me it is the number one trailer on the market today.P^

Shop stays open. Have a couple guys there that will continue to build components. Make brackets, cooler racks, bend alum poles etc etc...
At some point in the near future we hope to get them trained enough to actually build campers and maybe we can go to a real camp out!!

We were able to stop in Hobart this morning on our way home and visit Billy and Sheila to check out Roll-A-Home. We were mainly intrested in seeing if the standard bed model was wide enough for us, (we think that it is) we were really impressed with the quality, and fit and finish of the units. It will be hard to wait untill we have the money to order ours, it is going to be so much better than the tent, and with the quick set up, we won't be forced to motel it when on the road and just stopping for the night, when we don't want to take the time to set up and tear down the tent. Can't wait. Thanks Sheila and Billy.P^

Actually that is a good idea! We recently talked to a guy in Alaska that may order a roll a home and he specifically asked us if we would put a bigger sticker on the side.

Mine weighs over 500# when loaded.
While I can tell it's back there, it's not a problem with my Goldwing.
It does increase my braking distance,so I like to keep it at 65 or below and watch my following distance.
I think I lose 3-4 miles per gallon.
I don't know what you ride,and it might affect your bike differently.

I think it will take a long time brfore the velcro wears out.

Harpo,

Just returned from Millers Trailer Sales in Pennsylvania. Rented a Leesure Lite for an overnight trial. It was really outstanding.
I just sold my Bunkhouse. Reasons? Very difficult to put up by myself, even harder to get down and not pinch the screens or tent in the support bars. Didn't like the idea of the dressing area being on the ground, in the mud. Yes, we had the carpet and the tarp under it, but when it rains, the mud and water run over the carpet and then when you put it away, it is in the trailer. While the storage area is usually dry, you are folding up a wet tent into the same area as the mattress and I've talked to many users and no matter what the factory says, EVERYONE I talked to complained about wet mattresses. But, I think the major problem for me was how hard and time consuming for one person to put up and take down.

I had never used a leesure lite before. Patsy, co-owner of Millers, said "unlatch the top, and lift it all the way over." I did and withing 30 seconds, the tent portion was up. Oh, I did have to flip the skirting over, but it is cosmetic and took all of 10 seconds. Putting it away? The instruction are clear... "Just tuck everything in as best you can and close the lid. Don't pinch anything", that's it.And everything just tucks in, no pinching involved. It did take maybe 45 seconds to put it away. It towed perfectly, and the new ones come with 100% LED lighting.

But, you really can't put too much faith in what people say. Your needs are different. If you are in the area, contact Millers and rent one. Then decide. A little more expensive but so much more camper for the money. And easy means you will use it more.

Have fun, JeffP^

Sounds great, but what about storage? Any room or provisions for a small A/C?

kaitiff
01-22-2013, 09:01 AM
They do have a provision to mount an AC unit, kinda unique really. It mounts up on the front of the camper, over where the front pod or cooler would be. As for storage, it has a lot of inside storage area, like 30 cu ft, but it IS where the bed is. There's also a huge front storage pod option as well as a behind-the-wheels underneath aluminum cargo area that can be added. Most folks don't want to deal with cargo being on their bed, but using stackable containers or drawers actually makes a really nice little dresser and table on the floor when you set up.

Yep. It's a beautiful area and centrally located to take day trips from. We set up there and then take in the area around from Arkansas to the Lake of the Ozarks without pulling the camper around with us.

I am really interested in your RAH campers. The look exceptionally well made and easy to set-up.
I have a few of questions about the wide-bed camper.

First, how is the interior access used? Do you lift up the bed mattress and then there is a hatch or does it slide open? How large is the access?

In some of the pictures on your web site I noticed that some of the wide-bed campers had support legs under the bed slide-out, however I did not see those supports used in any of the set-up videos. Are there any supports on the current models?

Lastly, where does the window AC flap install and how is the AC unit supported? Do you have any diagrams showing this? What size does this AC flap accommodate? Will the AC unit store in the under-bed storage area? What are the typical dimensions/BTU recommended for the AC unit?

How long does a typical order take to be filled? Do you have any rallies/events planned for this year?

And lastly, do you have or have you considered a type of on-line catalog showing pictures/details of the options/upgrades?

I know this is a lot of questions so feel free to reply via PM or email if need be.

My Roll-A-Home has a 5 pin connector but if you work with Billie he can fix you up with whatever you need.

You lift up the hatch door with the mattress on it messes up the bedding a little but not much. The ac flap is on the front of the tents and is secured with Velcro best thing to sit ac on is a plastic milk crate this was suggested to me by Billie and Sheila and it works great plus the milk crate can be used a storage container while traveling. I always use the support legs on the pullout they attach in a couple of seconds.

I stayed at a motel in Altus when I went up to pick up my RAH. Hobart is over the mountain from you, about 30 miles. Ride over and have a talk with Billy and Sheila they are great people and more than willing to show you what they have to offer, and answer all of your questions.

Shelia, would you be so kind as to pm me with the same info? I'm down to two choices, the RAH or the Aspen. I leaning toward an Oklahoma ride. Upright storage would be wonderful, saving me monthly storage costs.

Thanks,

Hello!
I did not recieve a pm from you but Ill be glad to answer any questions you have. We do not offer the upright storage rack any more. It was originally made to fit the older roll a homes before LED lights. It did not appear to be very safe either. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!:)

I have a few of questions about the wide-bed camper. See answers below
First, how is the interior access used? Do you lift up the bed mattress and then there is a hatch or does it slide open? How large is the access?
There is a hatch and you lift it up. It also has a prop rod to prop it open. The access is approximately 3' x 5'

In some of the pictures on your web site I noticed that some of the wide-bed campers had support legs under the bed slide-out, however I did not see those supports used in any of the set-up videos. Are there any supports on the current models? All the widebed models come with the support rods for the slideout. The slides used to make the slideout are rated 300 to 500 lbs so most people dont feel the need for them. Your legs and feet is what is on the slideout so the majority of your weight is on the trailer.

Lastly, where does the window AC flap install and how is the AC unit supported? Do you have any diagrams showing this? What size does this AC flap accommodate? Will the AC unit store in the under-bed storage area? What are the typical dimensions/BTU recommended for the AC unit?
The ac flap is installed in the opposite end of the tongue. The outside is a flap that velcros shut when not using the ac and the inside has a boot with a drawstring to tighten around the ac. We carry a plastic milk crate to sit our ac on. It is the perfect height and works real well for storing lanterns and things in. 5000 bu is the recommended size. This size unit will fit in the cargo area nicely.

How long does a typical order take to be filled? Do you have any rallies/events planned for this year? It takes 2 weeks to build a camper and that would be dependent on how many were ahead of you. We usually go to the Wing Ding, CMA changing of Colors and Davis Motorcyle rally in Iowa. Those are for sures.

And lastly, do you have or have you considered a type of on-line catalog showing pictures/details of the options/upgrades? I have not but that would be a good idea. I have considered linking pictures to the actual option page.

If I havent answered all your questions, please feel free to email us or give us a call!:) Thanks

There is really no good way to mount a reciever on the rear but you can mount a cooler rack and cooler on the tongue.

Plastic on the windows is an option. Most people get the plastic on both of the end windows if they choose to get plastic.

I don't think this was an option when we bought ours from Larry.Can the plastic be zipped in,or does it need to be sewn?

Well Shelia due to health problems and family problems looks like all my camping will be close to home at Hamilton county fish and wildlife state park, luck it is a great park and only 7 miles out. Will give the Rollahome a good workout there, and get some fishing in I hope. P^ Will pots some pics as year goes along.

Hi Gary!
I bet you get to camp more than us! LOL!
Im sorry health and family keep you close to home but if family is near and your camping and fishing it cant be all bad!P^

We so look forward to the rally's that we can camp at. We really havent been on a trip since buying ourselves another job (Roll A Home) but we do get to enjoy hearing everybody elses trip reports and seeing their pictures.
Best part is when they come down to pick up their camper. We get to put a face to the emails.

Enjoy and congratulations on your new role in the forum:cool:

I picked up a new RAH last year. THEY’RE GREAT! Mileage on the 2000 mile trip home went from 43 to 37.
I had a ’97 standard; the new one is better. More bed surface and it handles a lot better with bigger wheels.
Looks like you got the second door. Wise
Eventually all you out there may have a RAH; I would think about the A/C port to be used as a dog door.

I've been putting the foam tubes you get for insulating pipes on the floor supports. I get 2 for about $2.20. I know they will not last that long but I have used them three nights camping and numerous times setting up to get comfortable with the procedure and they're still doing fine. :)

I was going to put those foam tubes along the slider for nthe wide bed model so that no damage is done to my little lady's backside while she puts on her riding boots. Anyone else have other ideas?

We carry a small foldup step stool so its easier for my short (oops height challenged) wife to get in bed. And we have a chair and table in the dressing area to sit and put on boots. Table sits next to head of bed for cpap and glasses, etc.
