Do not buy Roo's unless you like water in your bed

Well now that we have been using our brand new 2012 roo it's only good for dry climates. So after dealing with our dealer over the phone and telling them our issues videos and pictures sent and still on vacation, excuse given you must allow the stitching to swell and dry. Well it's swelled and dried and water still is flooding bed end . So my advice to future buyers do not buy unless you live in a place that never rains or you like a wet bed.

I know this is disheartening for you but generalizing that all roo's leak is not going to solve your issues nor is it going to keep future buyers from steering away.
Keep your head up and things will get better.

A point needs to be made that yes these units are leaky and these tent ends have issues. I had another roo owner in same weekend took on water. My problem is if I can not use my trailer for rest of summer I should be reimbursed for pain and putting up with a mess. Attached is a photo of tent end not level rest of trailer is level the rear has issues but excuses from forest rivers do not help.

Sorry to hear this, patkins. What a pain for you. I recall reading your other post about the leak. A good dealer will/should take care of you.

With regards to the generalization. Its understandable you are upset but by no means does this carry over to all Roos past, present and future. My Shamrock hasn't leaked and its a twin to the Roo.

Best of luck to you.

It's the excuses I do not like. You should hear we will get that fixed ASAP and if the tent end is leaking like in video when we do test we will replace. End of story. Not this is normal you must get wet then dry and that this is normal. Point is water is entering under mist conditions very light rain under heavy rains it's a flood.

Sounds like someone needs to come up with some sort of homemade flashing or something.

That sucks, I have a 2011 roo 19L and have been in some nasty rain, snow and hail and haven't had a leak yet. This should be something the dealer should fix right away.

Make sure that the mattres is replaced with a new one when your unit is repaired. The mattress that contain electrical strip for heating are unsafe after they get wet and need replacement.
