I've got a 2013 233S that was delivered in Aug 2012. It's at the dealer now to get all three bunks and canvas replaced. All three doors have issues with delamination, cracks and small bubbles in the paint, i.e. water damage. Thankfully, because of this forum, I bought the 2nd year warranty so FR is picking up the tab without a fight.

I guess my next question is if people with the newer designed bunk doors are having the same issues? If there are still issues, are they happening at the same rate? Not sure if I want to keep the camper or sell after the repairs are made. I'd sure hate to continue fighting water problems and go through this again.

I had all 3 of mine replaced under warranty. Only had 2 showing bending and paint popping off but I insisted they replace the third one too. They did with no argument.

jdubs, what model and year is your camper? How long ago was the work performed and did it solve the problem?

Early production without the outside tv mount.
Yes, they replaced the whole door assemblies including canvass last winter.
Yes, no problems now

Mine has a lot of that too. It also has delam on two of the bunk doors.

Good luck. I hope Forest River does the right thing for you.

I hope so also, I will fight tooth and nail with them if they don't.. The power of the internet usually prevails in these situations. Could always banner up the trailer saying how soon forest river products can fail. That's extreme but can be done

Our last weekend it appears that the corners at the lower hinge of the side bunk (233S) cracked. We're a few months outside warranty. The dealer is about an hour away. Not sure if I should haul back to them or contact FR directly.
