I had the "Bunk End Field Repair Kit" installed by my dealer. Unfortunately, they were unsuccessful. I picked up my HTT from the dealer two weeks later and it just so happens that on this day we were having thunderstorms (thankfully).
However, after my hour long ride home I was welcomed with tons of water inside. However, in defense of the "Bunk End Field Repair Kits" and Forest River, I can't honestly say if they worked or not; because it was learned that my camper is defective and the top of the camper is bowed in.
My HTT is currently at and has been at the factory for a couple of weeks. Gregg Rollins is looking into it. I have only had this HTT for two months today, and it has already been out of my possession for more than a month (between dealer and factory).
My wife and I are new to RVing and we only had a PopUp for the two years prior to this purchase (limited camping in it). We never had a problem with the PopUp.
I am torn about this defective HTT. My wife and I love the floor plan of the 21ss, but don't know if we want this defective Roo back or if we should exchange for an enclosed TT. We are concerned and scared that we could be over a thousand miles away and this happen again. My wife and I have discussed with the dealer the possibility of exchanging into a 2501ss, instead of this 21ss. Having this camper only since 06/22 and it being out of my possession longer than with me has been quite upsetting as a new trailer owner.
This particular defective HTT has exhibited water issues when raining: While setting still (closed and parked), while traveling, and with the Bunk Ends open in the camping mode.
We'll see what Forest River and Gregg Rollins proposes. Hopefully this will be a happy ending and I will have a new camper soon, to be able to have a couple of trips with my family
, before the end of the season.
I hope to be able to comment and praise Forest River on here, in regards to my situation; only time will tell.
