Celestep, thank you, and everyone else for the responses thus far. Fortunately, our beds are holding up very well and I've never seen any leaks or unexpected condensation/moisture.

It was raining quite hard when we put up the beds, so I'm sure it was just leakage through the zippers. The recommendation to pull the mattresses before lifting the beds in the rain is probably a good one.

After setting the camper up and letting it air/dry out, everything looks good.

I'm assuming that water trapped on top of the canvas came in through the zippers. When we got home, I set the camper back up and found that the mattresses are now wet around the edges.
Have others experienced this issue? I assume it's normal.
My wife and I bought a Rockwood Roo 233s. And has leaked. Took it to warranty place and they said they thinks it is fixed. Nope still leaks going back again. One thing I noticed is that they do not have rain gutters above the tent beds like the older ones. Everyone I have talked to that has the similar campers say they have leaks too. I will ask the warranty company to put the rain gutters on like the older models have

We recently had to fold up the beds in the rain and the tent ends did leak through the zipper. The mattresses did not get wet but the water did leak on the floor. We wiped everything down after folding up the beds and when we got home we opened everything up to dry for several days. We have never had an issue otherwise.
