REAR SLIDE FELL OUT WHILE IN IT..rockwood roo

Our 2009 Rockwood Roo 21RS travel trailers BED fell out of the trailer while we were sleeping in it !! My husband rolled out to the right, I fell with the room! We are NOT heavy and had no inclination that this would happen...we were sound asleep heard a crack and down it went...pics incl. I have YET to hear from ANYONE from Forest River or the Rockwood division after numerous calls and emails. I would hate to think what might have happened if a child was in that bed sleeping OR if it happened during the day w/a child or pet underneath it at the time...we got denied a claim and we are at a stand still as to what next...the ins. co is saying a mfg. defect I want to warn everyone to ck their slides and/frames if possible.....

When I first saw the picture I was thinking of the old...."If this campers rocking..........".

Hell of a wake up call. Glad no one was hurt

That should never happen. Curious what gave way. Hard to tell in the pictures. I'm sure FR will use the old "out of warranty" excuse, but in my opinion, something wasn't right. Being it is a 2009, who knows what could've went wrong. It was built in the downturn of the industry.

i've never seen anything like that happen, in all the time there have been rear bed slide Roo/Shamrock TTs.

i think Gregg Rollins is still the Roo/Shamrock person to contact at FR.
he responds to emails better than voice mails.

You are right! The RV place we had it towed to said 3 cracks in the frame! BAD WELDING JOB on aluminum frame!!

Whoa! as the owner of the identical model, that makes me very nervous, even though we just had the slide repaired at the factory due to cracking of the "Alumalite" I hope their repairs included inspection of the welds referenced in this post. I really do love our 21RS.
