Have 2014 Roo model with no major problems in manufacturer. Been through some hard rain without a leak. Problem with awning was Dometic's fault. Bad water pump was Sureflo. Sounds like you just just got a lemon. If you buy Forest River, get second year of warranty, it's cheap.

No significant issues with our 2014 233s. I had a problem with the jack, not necessarily FR's problem. Only thing I've worked on so far is the cheap screen door handle had to be replaced twice (still looking for a better handle) and the toilet replacement. Other than that, just some simple mods to it (knock on wood). We driveway camped in the trailer the first night to make sure the AC/Heater really worked for a duration, and we've taken it out about 5 times now with no issues. I'm still debating taking the water filter completely out, but the times I've inspected it prior to leaving, it seemed to be properly fitted. Sorry for your luck.

We have a 2013 Rockwood Roo 23SS, and have taken it on many trips, long and short. We just got home from almost a month in WY (from MO). It's been from MO to FL, MO to AL Gulf Coast, to Lakes MI and Huron 3-4 times, and local river campgrounds. We're heading back up to MI next week. We camp with our two big dogs, and often with 4-5 people in the Roo. So it's getting some heavy use. Any problems we've had have been self-inflicted--the dumb type, of course. It sure sounds like you got a lemon, and I'm sorry you've had such trouble.

I have a 2015 Roo 183. I recently saw minor water in the front bunk, but I am thinking it is my fault. I don't think I had the mattress right and it was between the night stand and putting slight pressure on the bunk door and not sealing it properly.
