I agree you need to contact Forest River, not the dealer. If you are looking for others with similar experiences I would suggest since you have a motorhome not an a frame that you post in that section of the forum. You would probably get better response. A frame roof systems use a different manufactuing process. Good luck .

I have a Rocwood A122S that leaks when camper is closed. If it was up during high winds and hard rain, it too would leak, I believe. Took it in to get looked at, the back panel is bent. Sags about 1/2" or so, the seal did not make contact all the way across. They installed an extra seal that connects to the edge of the front panel. Seal looks like one by AP Product )18-3009. Seems to close up space nicely.

First real trip out we had 30mph sustained winds and tornado warnings south of where camped. Had no issues, rain and wind hit right rear corner put me to sleep like a baby. If under warranty, let the pros look at it.

FR roof delamination issues

Hi
I think I finally found the right chat group.

I just sold my 2007 Chalet trailer.
Over the last few years I met numerous Chalet owners who are struggling to repair delamination of their roof panels.
I also experienced some delamination on my unit.
I love the Aframe concept, I get really good gas mileage pulling the Chalet with my Tacoma.
I am considering buying a Rockwood Aframe and I am wondering if there are also similar issues with roof and wall delamination.

Yes it seems if the trailer is stored under a roof there is not as much chance of delamination.

Having been on this forum for over 5 years now...i have yet to see any issues with delamination . ..however the bubble windows are known to have issues with leaking. The metal roof interior skin gives our units rigity . ..and definately a marked improvement over the chalet roof. A friend purchased a used chalet and has issues with window leaks..roof flexing..and a whole host of other issues

Leak on A122 when closed

When the camper is up, there is no water leak. When closed, it leaked in the roof. Said something to dealer and Forest River. They replaced all my roof seals. Great repair by Albany RV and greater customer service by Forest River.
