It was the only trailer I saw with that type of damage????.
The damage I have experienced is external where there is a large bubble in the fibreglass laminate in two places beginning at the roof line. In one case about 4 square feet, the other a little smaller. I have been told that Aluminum exteriors are a better choice for that reason.
While I enjoy our Roo, I am disappointed in the overall quality of some construction.
Much of the black painted steel has shown rust very quickly.
Cabinetry veneers inside are peeling or chip very easily.
Cable to tow vehicle failed very early on.
For the price, I was disappointed with quality.
I have wondered if the Jay Feather and other makers have similar issues.
With the price of gasoline these days and the need to keep my Envoy primarily as a tow vehicle, I have wondered about the generation of tear drops that can be towed by a much smaller vehicle.
