Greetings form Rochester, NY

I am not new to camping, however this is my first 'big boy' camper. Next week I will be picking up a new 2014 Roo 233S and a new 2014 Chevy Silverado Double Cab with the V6 to tow it. I have heard and read a lot about the bunk ends leaking...comments, thoughts, suggestions???

in your paperwork/manual, will be instructions to "season" the canvas ends BEFORE you use it.
this entails wetting down the canvas ends and then letting them dry out.
this allows the seam threads to swell and expand.

also, be aware of condensation inside the tent ends when many close up their trailer at night and not allowing for air movement.

opening a vent and a little of a tent end window, will allow for air movement.
doing this and using Popup Gizmos or the generic 5x7 solar blankets will virtually eliminate any condensation.

Welcome and congrats on your 2014 Roo 233S. You might want to think about the Reflectix mod for the tent end window areas too. Helps keep the warm/cool air in depending on the season.
