We saw this same thing on a 23SS Shamrock (same unit) at a dealer's lot. Brand new 2008.

If it's the screws that rust, you could replace them with stainless steel ones from a marine supply outfit.

It's the trim around the exterior of the bunk doors...

It’s the white combing trim around the exterior edge of the bunk doors. Rust occurs at the exposed cut ends and notches made in the upper corners. The inner section of trim contains a non-stainless steel “gripping” component that helps to keep the trim secured to the edge. Ours, yours and everyone else who owns a Roo or Shamrock is likely to see the same thing. Just a poor choice of materials to use on behalf of Forest River.
