Unfortunately, this is the world we live in. They don't make them like they use to. Not just RV's but anything you buy. It really sucks and is very disappointing. The good thing is, I lived close to the dealer and in my first year, it was back and forth ALOT! Probably about 7-10 times for different issues and some issues were to fix issues that either didn't the first time, or it broke again. They knew who I was when I came in the door.
When I first got my Roo, it was riddled with issues. Many I fixed myself as they were small and tedious, but others I went back to the dealer for. None included leaking though. I would defiantly have the dealer fix those to get the damage on paper.
I absolutely hated the issues I had to deal with. I felt that it was poor manufacturing and poor customer service that these things were not taken care of during the walk through or even prior. But, to be honest, I would buy another. After reading on here the issues everyone has with a large number of different dealers, there's no way out but to not buy
..... That's not going to happen. I love camping. The only think it does do is make me smarter.
I bought my first pup from the same dealer I got my hybrid from. I had the same issue with having to take it back to the dealer to get it right. 7 years later, I was hoping for a little better experience, but to my surprise, It was not. Same issues, same dealer, different RV.
I plan on keeping this one a long time, but with time and trials, comes experience. I think I will be ready for a much more strict walk-through and setting expectations when buying my next RV.
It happened when moving forward to my new hybrid. I learned from the pup that having a better warranty was worth it. so, when I bought my hybrid, I got the 7 year extended warranty. It really was not that expensive considering the cost of the RV, just adding a few bucks, and I'm not afraid to use it.
I think it was oldcoot that told me, it was cheaper to rush these things through the line when building them and fixing issues later than it was to double check the work prior to delivery. Well, I will either get a good trailer, or they will loose their profit through warranty repairs. (I'm a little bitter about the lack of quality parts
I would obviously take it back again. I'm not sure if it would help to contact forest river on this to see if they might help out in this situation. Might be a long shot.
