Fold out beds rotting

I have a 2004 Shamrock 21SS. Both beds on the ends are de-laminating and one is totally rotten and broken. Can these be repaired or is the best bet to replace them? Where can I find replacement parts?

Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear of your problems.

Seems like it's a common problem with hybrids with water leaks around the fold out beds or even excessive condensation being a possible cause. I believe that they can be replaced with an improved's a thread with more info.

I am in the same boat. This last trip, I noticed my bunk end (I only got one up front) was getting soft by the hinge and I had some delamination in that area. I think I will talk to my dealer and see how much this winter to change it out.

Be prepared

I've already emailed Forrest River and their solution is to replace the entire bunk door system. They did not recommend trying to fix just the bad section. I've requested a diagram of the doors construction so I can see whether it's something I can repair, but so far no response on that request. Hopfully they'll send me something other than the door consists of styrofoam sandwiched between two pieces of 1/8" plywood with fiberglass on the outside within an aluminum frame. That's what I have received so far along with their recommendation to replace both doors.
I've read on this forum and others on the Internet that this is a common problem for hybrids across all manufactures. Makes no sense to me.

I have had the same issue. 1 year ago my friends got up in the morning and the bed fell off from the hinge because it was rotten and the alluminum frame let broke. I took it appart which was fairly easy and cut out the rotten part. I took the fram to have the front alluminum bar welded back onto the fram. i then replaced the plywood foam sandwich portion that i had cut out and put back togeather. Then last year same thing but on the other bed. This time i did the same but since i did not like the welding job that was done I bout L brackets and screwed the piece back to the frame. I would say it is a 100 times stronger than the 5 little welds they put originally. I wish i had taken pictures as i did this just this weekend.
