The Roo is one the most sold and sought after Hybrid Camping Trailers.

Bunk end sealing problem pleage Hybrid trailer. Not just on FR products, but on all brands. If it doesn't leak now, it will as time goes on.

that's a 3 year-old model and the tent ends have probably been out that long, on the lot.
so, i would examine the canvas condition closely. also, the condition of the doors, seals and hinges on the bunk ends.
these would have been exposed all those years to the elements and may have some issues.

there are a lot of hybrid owners that NEVER had leak issues. i'm one of them.
love our Roo 23SS and have had it for 4 years now.

Check all your water connections, especially around the pump and city water connections. Run a tank of fresh water through the entire system, then check and clean the pump inlet screen, it's amazing what comes out of the fresh water tank (like plastic and sawdust). Chaeck, also, the aerators on the faucets in the head and galley, they are good at catching stuff too.
By the way, you'll love the Roo.

Does it come with the new warranty? If it does then I wouldn't be to worried. If any thing pops up after you get it home, no biggie if it's under warranty. As for price and model, I couldn't tell you but, it doesn't sound bad to me. Good luck and keep us posted.
