I'm hoping that I'm not in this boat also. Due to the dry summer in Ontario I only had one rain on the trailer. The side window canvas leaked a bit and the water did soak through to the mattress.

I put the dealer on notice - their advice was to let the rain swell the fabric. I hope this is the solution.

I'm going to put the garden hose to it prior to Thanksgiving and see if swelling works.......otherwise I may be in the same boat.

what annoys me is the fact that my 2004 $7,000 Jayco popup never leaked a drop. I could put the hose to it and wash the bunk ends with a wash mit and hose it down - without a leak.

Well I had to wait since we were leaving the next day. I have had a rain on it today but not a hard enough rain to see if it leaks. I plan on soaking it TRUST me. I still think negative information against FR on sites like this get results...it worked for me and the more pictures and videos you can post and send to the dealer helps. What people must realize if you spend $2000 -$75000 on a trailer and it has issues you have the right to vent... I hate liberal thinking people shhhh you can not say that.

I have a 2012 Roo as well. Problem with mine is that is doesn't appear that the tents are leaking, but the doors are retaining water. When I raise the ends, water comes flooding in, soaking bed. Dealer is handling with FR and I am supposed to get replacement ends. Check doors for water damage and warping. Love the Roo, just want the water issue solved.

These bed ends are week old and design is garbage tents are too tight they are pulling the threads away from the holes. I want trailer to be bought back in USA you have lemon law and mine is a lemon.

Freedom of speech has certainly been banned on this forum by some people.

Members agree to abide by the site rules including the section about the "First Amendment, censorship and your "right to free speech"".

The rules are not about limiting viewpoints, right, wrong, different, or indifferent but rather the keeping the overall envirnoment of this forum a nice place to visit. As for venting - state your point and move on. Rehashing a complaint over & over usually does little good except for the person doing the complaining. Now giving an valid update when appropriate could be useful.

I think it is so important for all Rockwood Roo owners that are having bunk end leaking issues and even general workmanship issues have a place to find each other. The frustrations of paying so much for a recreational vehicle and then having things happen to the point where we can't use it and it is only a few years old or even newer from what I am seeing on this forum. I used to think I was alone in dealing with my trailer issues but I am learning a lot by reading what other Canadian and US Rockwood Roo owners are going through. Forest River has to realize we the consumers pay a lot of money for their products and expect to receive a good well built product. Not something that leaks and falls apart!

Well stated and a valid point.
