I gave them a small list of things to fix but for the most part they change alot of stuff on there own. I been kicking around the ideal of trading it off or putting it up for sale.but I don't like the thought of having a payment on another camper.mine is paid off.but like yours I don't want this same problem 12 months later and I'm sure they won't fix it again and I don't want to pay 1500 bucks in fuel to get it there every year. I've tried to look it up on nada but my camper is a 08 and is only listed as being 7.5 feet wide and mine is 8 feet.so not sure how to price it. We only have one place here where I live at that deals with forest river campers and WOW are their campers price high. But I like the camper and its hard to find one that is like it. Even looked at some jayco campers but now back into payments again. Tell you what that 23ikss is looking good. Might sacrifice the marriage for that camper.but will it leak and delam too.that is the real question.

I'm taking my 2010 Roo 23SS in for new bed cores and seal kits next week. I bought it used last Spring. FR is paying for the parts, I'm covering the labor since there was no warranty left. I suspect the previous owner had the problems and dealt with FR but refused to pay for the labor to fix it because there were no questions asked after I gave Greg Rollins my VIN. They didn't even want a picture.

Mine looks similar to Aqualight's picture but the bubbling is larger on the front bed door.

I have 2 problems: delam and minor leaking.

The delam is a manufacturing defect IMO and I hope I'm not dealing with the same problem again in a couple years. Since not everyone has experienced delam of their bunk doors, they certainly can do it right but not on my unit.

The minor leaking is a result, at least in part, of some of the screws securing the frame to the trailer walls not being put in at a 90 deg. angle so the screw heads hold the door edge seal out a bit and allow water to get past. I'll ask the dealer to reset those screws and hope that solves the problem.

new front bunk door

FR is sending me a new front bunk door at no charge even with expired warranty. It is at a dealer now to get the work done. I have to pay for the labor though.

We got ours back from McKenzie RV in Gormley, ON where the new doors and seal kits were installed. They seem to have done a nice job putting it back together but they didn't do anything about the screws in the door frame.

FR sent new "bed cores" so the dealer had to re-use the frame from around the old cores and the lock mechanisms. The new white seals around the door edges are much thicker than the originals. They also gave me a different door hinge on the front bed door so there isn't such a large gap at the bottom corners when its in the stored position.

Since the work was done in late fall here in Ontario, Canada it's too cold to think about camping (for us anyway!) so its back in outdoor storage. We'll get a better look in the Spring at how good their workmanship was. Finger crossed!

The technician's advice to avoid the delam bubbling was to make sure there is a good bead of caulk around the frame where it overlaps the core on the outside and inside.

BTW, the technician said the new style permanently attached bed ends will not fit in the old style (bungie) door openings. They had tried on another customer's trailer and had to re-order new old-style doors. They also said the new design, or at least as it came out originally, had a serious problem and they are replacing a lot of them. We saw more than a dozen of the new style doors lying outside their shop that had been replaced.
