I too just bought a 23RS. We love it. It tows well and is just right for out family of 4. We gave the kids the pull-out area and we took the queen size bed up front. If you pull that curtain you have your own heat vent, AC vent, sky light and TV outlet. What more could mom and dad ask for??? We found that the bunk over the queen size bed came in VERY handy as a sort of catch all storage spot while we were camping. Kids toys, cloths, guitar, pet supplies and everything else that wasn't being used at the moment fit well up there and really helped keep the place clean while camping.

Search for posts by me, specifically in the "problems" forum. I've had only minor troubles with one exception (the water heater). Test yours soon in both electric and gas mode. If either fails to work properly then let me (and your service manager) know!

Welcome and congrats on the new trailer!!

Congrats on your new Outback


Milage with mine truck is about 20.5 l/100km pulling at 100 km/h
Normal driving city/hwy for me is 15.4 l/100km

Sorry I do not know what that is in mpg but I am about 25% more pulling and thru the mountains it can go as high as 35% more. (rough figures)

Welcome to Outbackers.com markcharice action

Wow, this is a post from the past. MPG = bad no matter what your TV is.

Again welcome and soon this will be your home page if it's not already

Thank you! Well, I'm a financial analyst type and won't make any decisions without knowing exactly what I'm getting into. So we can't even look at buying our Outback until I have a good idea of exactly how much it will cost us in gas, insurance, and other expenses, so we know how much money is left in the budget for the trailer itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated! This forum is wonderful.

Ssbondo,

An uncontrollable urge to go camping is a common issue among Outback owners.
Well, that and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome stemming from your pending addiction to posting in this forum!


Congratulations on the new Outback!


Happy Trails,
Doug

Congrats. We too bought a 23RS this summer and love it. Like Steve, we have the kids stay in the rear slide and we take the front bed and use the overhead bunk for storage.
Hope you enjoy your purchase.

We bought our '05 23RS last year about this time and used it a total of 35 days with no major problems. Temps varied from 20 degrees to 105 degrees. All systems worked well. Only "problems" I have had thus far are a noisy water pump, a leaky kitchen sink drain, and a smelly gray tank vent. I replaced the pump with a better one and the dealer gave me a new vent cap for the gray water vent which is under the kitchen sink and replaced a torn washer under the sink bowl. I have done a few modifications to the kitchen drawers and the bath vanity door, added a shower door and couple of towel bars. Replaced the queen slide miniblinds and the blind over the front queen bed with roll up shades that don't bang around in the night. We usually are camping with another couple and the 23RS is perfect for the 4 of us. My next mod will be a flat screen TV/DVD combo that I can wall mount. The current space for the TV will not hold anything larger than a 13inch TV. Just gotta come up with a good "reason" to sell the idea to the DW. (Her old screen name once was "TVHATER")

Uh...guys?

I just noticed we need to pay a little more attention to post dates here. ssbondo bought his new Outback March 9th... of 2004! (Caught me too!)

Oh well, better late than never, I guess!


Happy Trails,
Doug
