Sarcasm is really not well received on these forums. Sorry you're having issues; your dealer is the one you should be ranting at, not the rest of the Roo community.

We also had a flood in our shamrock this week. Ours leaked from underneath. We think some of the caulking came out letting water in when it rains hard. Really does put a damper on Vacation.

Sorry to read you are having leaking issues.

Now is time for you to bring your unit to your dealer. Let us know what your dealer comes up with, this strikes me as an obvious defect, easily addressed by your warranty.

We've had our 19 for 3 summers now - not one issue with leaking at all, and we've been in really rainy areas and I know I am one of many with no issues. No major issues ever popped up, the little ones were handled by the warranty.

Good luck from another one in Ontario.

I'm looking at the pics on my phone, so forgive me if I'm wrong. It looks like the water is coming from the roof area of the canvas. Either the material is seriously compromised or there is a lot of condensation building and dripping. Where were you camping? Was there ventilation and/or PUGS (or some similar type covering) used?

We had some leaking through the tenting seams on our 233S's inaugural trip, but after that, we haven't had a problem (apparently it was a seam seasoning issue). We've only seen rain once since then while camping (we live in AZ), but all bunks remained dry.

Please keep us posted on how things turn out, and I'll report if I have future problems with leaking.

Well the tenting along with new design is the issue it's stretched to tight at many areas then to lose at others. The water comes in, in many areas of rear bunk and the only reason for this is this brilliant new design. I had a fellow forum reader come by last night and compare his 19 roo with mine and mine has lots of differences. The biggest difference is my rear bunk it has a drop off between ledge seam and bottom of bunk. The reason so many users are happy with Roos years after purchase is because that have old design it is bullet proof. Anybody with new design has encountered issues.

I'm presently in trailer as rain enters and goes down side of bunk. Soak your trailer let it dry soak it again over and over and make sure its not going to be a issue. I'm not ranting just anal about a very expensive purchase with what I see as a design flaw.
