Jayco x23F vs Roo 233S

We are preparing to upgrade from our popup to hybrid and have narrowed our choices to the Jayco X23F or Roo 233S. Our main reason for upgrading is to accomodate our recently expanded family of four Akitas (dogs - 80+ lbs each). Unfortunately, none of our local (or even a reasonable drive) dealers have the models we can see in person, so we will most likely be ordering a model that we decide to buy without actually seeing it. There are lots of pics online, but my wife seems to think that the Roo might have slightly more floor space. I like that the Jayco has permanently attached tenting. Does anybody have insight to the comparison of the two models? Your opinion is greatly appreciated!

Humm....The first thing I see is the lack of counter space and storage cabinet space...With the 3 bunks, that is going to take up available space for cabinets in a 24' hybrid.....use this as an example in our 24 hybrid. We have 3 overhead cabinet doors above the sink area.

Another thing to look at..The Jayco has a 28 gallon fresh water tank (Roo 36) 28 is very very small....We have a 46 gallon and the new hybrid were looking at (Aerolite #232E) is 52.....Now if you don't plan on taking showers much and do mostly weekend travel, 28 is going to be fine.

With the 4 dogs you might want to see if it is standard or an option to get the outside shower....Hosing off 4 opps I mean 16 dog muddy paws would sure come in handy with an outdoor shower.
