Wow, that's some bad luck.
Have you tried talking to the factory?

are you sure it wasn't condensation?
happens when it's cooler outside and the owner buttons up all the vents and windows tight and turns the furnace on, along with all the breathing humans inside.

where exactly was the water coming from?

if it was forming on the inside of the canvas, that's condensation.
if it was along the seams or along the bottom border, then it would probably be something different.

Marco. I have had lots of problems with my 2011 233. First the unit came with no weather stripping on all 3 bunk ends. The canvas ripped on two of these. The vent on the roof for the bathroom broke, the front bunk end leaked causeing the bunk end to become soft. Forest river replaced the bunk end. I noticed some rust on the screws and some water dripping from the tv controls after a heavy rain and driving . Turns out there were no o rings on the worm gear of the winegard antenna. I just got the TT home today after the bunk ends repaired and the brand new mattress that was replaced because then front bunk door was leaking is wet itself and I can't find out source of water. I'm fed up with this TT.
