Just got off the phone with Greg Johnson from Foret River. They WILL NOT approve warranty work on the roof. According to him, it is purely cosmetic and does not affect the coach whatsoever. He also said the radius is attached with staples that will come loose when the coach frame flexes going down the road. So I guess it's normal for roof radius to come loose? He said it's been documented and if there are any membrane tears that can be attributed the radius coming loose that they will cover it then. Simply amazing.

Wumba, I spoke with Scott Hunt last week and I was told the exact same thing. Instead of being a stand up company; FR wants to be reactive instead of being proactive. They would rather me have a leak which would lead to serious damage instead of fixing the design flaw. If they know that the aluminium coping pulls the staples out when the unit flexes then maybe they should find a better way to secure it. And now they are saying that my nose cone should be taken completely off in order to fix the leak. I'm in for a world of trouble.

Once again...I'm shocked that the RV community puts up with this BS......For what folks are paying for a box with some wheels and a sink, you'd think they would be built much better. I still don't understand how a Truck Camper, regardless of size or appointments, can get over $40,000 or how these trailers, without engines, transmissions, steering, dash boards, etc, etc, etc....can get into the multi 10s of thousands of dollars......

I have a 2011 trailer that was never registered when I bought it this past summer. It appears in perfect condition. But when I started to modify it I couldn't believe the terrible workmanship. Pieces of metal and wood left in any nook and cranny along with lots of sawdust. The wiring is simply incredible. Seems they grab whatever color wire they have at hand. Matters not if it is negative or positive...I have white, black and green and "ground" and white, black and red as "hot"......Upon disassembling the front bed area, 50% of the staples didn't hit anything! And the same for most screws......Glad I bought it used and paid less than half of retail. If I had paid full boat I'd be some pissed!

Sorry for your issues....
