2019 roo 21ss bed

I recently bought a 2019 roo. Had to reattach the corners of the bed canvas to trailer but the canvas is still quite saggy and the support pole inside does not seem long enough. Has anyone else encountered this

On my 2013 Roo, the length of the poles can adjusted also, can yours be lengthened?

Yep, the pole should have a spring loaded silver button that you push in to lengthen the pole. Unless a previous owner replaced it with the incorrect pole.

I would try FR parts department first.
Can you post pics of the entire shepherd's pole?

Our 2019 21SS does not have adjustable poles. We put ours on the middle spike and it is tight with no sag.

It looks like you could just take the screws out and move the spikes out toward the bunk end. I would push the bunk end frame all the way out and see if this tightens the canvas first. If so, then put the pole in and see where you would have to mount the spikes to make it tight. I would think the spike plate would still cover the old screw holes so it would still look nice.

Another thought, are both the poles for front and rear bunk the same length? Never checked mine to see if they were the same size.

I believe the front pole may be longer because the top of the front tent end, is longer than the rear one. This is due to the front slope of the trailer vs the 90 non-slope of the rear wall.

If anyone has a 2019 21ss could you post a photo of the bracket of the front bunk so I could compare the location to see if it is different. Forest river customer service was contacted and told me they have to investigate it. The pole is longer on the front bunk. Both poles are not adjustable and I have not been able to find any info on how long they are supposed to be.

If you happen to get to it maybe also measure the pole from tip to tip. I cant imagine but maybe it is a short pole
Appreciate all the responses.

X2

Jumbo hit it right on. The poles are not the same length. Im almost betting thats the rear bunk witch is in fact smaller; At least in my Shamrock it is (they should be the exact same model as mine)

The adjustment is in the different pegs in the bracket attached to the roof. Fwiw

2019 roo 21ss bed

On my 2016 Roo 21ss the poles are not adjustable and I'm sure that the poles are different length and the front being the longest.

21ss

I'm going to go measure now Thanks Jimbo and everyone else. The back bunk pole is significantly shorter then the front. So I only have one choice for the front bunk

Well, they used to be adjustable.
