for 330 it includes the door frame, the core, new hinge, and whatever necessary to install. Our front bunk is really bad ...it appears the previous owner or 1st owner tried to rplace the core and did not do such a good job as our middle of the bed fell thru last weekend. Plus our frame is split at the bottom. So we r goignfor the whole door...luckily we live about 2 hours from the factory and can pick it up.
We r also trying to figure out how we can cover that hinge...it seems to be where the water gets in

I actually ordered the replacement seal kit for my last camper but never ended up installing it. I can't remember what I paid for it all, but it's sitting in a box in the garage. If your interested, I can take inventory of what I actually have and send a couple pics.

I found a quick fix and didn't end up needed the replacement kit just by putting 1/4" rubber spacers in between the latch and the bunk end frame and it made the old gasket work just fine.

I wish FR would step in here with a good fix, they quoted me $1400 for each bunk end to replace ALL.

can't afford to put that kind of $$$ in 2002 camper.

We just bought a 2006 Roo 233 - it appears to have the same leak issue so I'm hoping someone here can tell me who at Forest River would help me get the seal kit? I really want to fix it now - I'm not sure of e damage is bad enough to need a full replacement but I'm hoping I can get away with the seal but fear the worst. Also, was there an official recall on these?

Thanks

I wish there was a recall as we had 2 bunks that leaked while it was closed and so much water got it every surface has mold and rot damage so our 3 year old trailer is ruined and toxic. There should be a recall on these leaking bunk ends. Our gutters were installed by the manufacturer to be flush with the black foam seals around the door so the water just got in and went all over the floor etc.... It has been a nightmare with the factory who said they would fix it. They ended up putting moldy wood back into the trailer and actually replacing things and leaving the black moldy wood in there. Too many owners are having this problem with leaking bunk ends why is there no recall there would be if it was a car. Why is it up to the owner to replace these bunk ourselves?

Below is the e-mail I received about what is included for 330.00 plus shipping...this is for a 2002 Roo. We are going to replace the whole front bed. I am curious though and will have to check if the hinge is a newer style or older, and if I still need the bunk end fix too/

THE BED/FRAME ASSEMBLY COMPLETE IS THE HINGE, FRAME AND INNER CORE. ESSENTIALLY, THE WHOLE PLATFORM THAT FOLDS DOWN THAT THE MATTRESS LAYS ON. THEY TAKE APPROXIMATELY 4-6 WEEKS. YES, YOU CAN PICK UP DIRECTLY FROM OUR PARTS PLANT. I WOULD NEED YOUR VIN# AND WHICH BED YOU NEED ORDERED.

Thanks,

Do you know if the setup you will be getting to replace your damaged parts, will be of a different design to help eliminate the water damage in the future?

I would be interested to see how yours turns out, and any pros and cons to what you received. I feel I am going to have to do this also in near future.

I still can't believe that the owners are expected to make the installations themselves and incur the cost if replacement bunk ends and bed cores. What is to say it won't leak again? Be careful when our Roo was built they installed the gutter to be flush with the door seal on one of our side bunk doors and the leak started and created water damage and then mold damage. They should stop making this design. Too much money to spend on an investment that leaks due to the design.
