The bed door leaking when closed is the most common problem.

If you can, try to examine it immediately after a good rain and before the owner has had a chance to dry it off.

The delamination tends to happen with the leaking as the water sits in the bottom of the wall frame and wicks up into the bed door core and it delaminates.

If you can find one that doesn't have the leak problem then they are a fantastic trailer.

I think 2022 may have been the year that they switched to the new permanently attached canvas. The initial design had a leak problem that was less frequent after a design change. On the new design, check that the black seals are not separated at the top corners.

When I had my roo21ss I noticed while closed the upper seal would not completely seal against the trailer. I was able to stick some white garage door molding, (the stuff that would seal the bottom of a garage door) just under that drip channel so the top of the bed when closed made a complete seal. Seemed to do the job then I sold it. They should of used that nice big soft slide out seal around the bed frames.
