(was Buyer Beware)-A122 Camper- "FIXED"

I am so disappointed. Here I was singing the praises of my beloved A122, and today, my husband opened it up only to find water damage and mold. Our last trip was in June and our new trip is this Friday. The mattress is ruined (soaked and moldy -its electric), the table, all the bedding and mattress topper, the edging around the microwave counter is coming off, etc. I've contacted my dealer about this flaw. Silly me, I thought I could keep the camper outside. It will be interesting to see how Forest River handles this...

Sorry to hear that. Any idea where all that moisture came from?

We keep our camper in the yard (closed up) and the moisture is from rain seeping into it. Not sure where it gets in from which has us afraid it will just keep happening. We've only had the camper four months. This should not happen.

You're right, it shouldn't happen.

Funny thing, every time we would have a storm, I worried a tree would come down on it. I never thought the rain itself would do the damage...

sorry to hear about this as well and hope forest river takes care of you on this.

I would have been in the same boat as you when I brought my trailer home but was told to look over the roof and decided as a preventative to re-caulk all the seams - found some areas that would have became an issue if I didnt caulk them with the Lap Sealant.

Oh Earthgirl, I am so sorry you are experiencing problems. Please keep us posted on what/where the leak is and how the dealer is handling this for you. I am extremely concerned as I have the A128. Fortunately mine is under a carport but didn't know it was required???

I am just about ready to buy an A122, but don't know what to do now since I have to park it outside. I am so sorry to hear about this, Earthgirl. I know how frustrating this must be.
