Got our new Roo233 hybrid back last nite from Forest River. Long story, short the dealer hid that the tents were falling out, there was a crack in the fiberglass, and the back latch was falling out of the outside wall. Forest River fixed the tents and put a new side wall on it. As for the outer back latch that had been repaired once already, all they did was take a block of wood ( wallpapered it to match) and attached it to the inside wall and screwed into it for support for the back latch. Guess I thought since it was a new camper they would replace that wall also. What do you think. I sure hope it hold up.

I would be a little mad if I bought a "new" trailer and it was not really in new condiiton. You need to go back to the dealer and tell him in writting exactly what you want done.

We did go back to the dealer and they said they couldnt fix it until fall and blamed Forest River for most of the damage. We ended up sending it back to F.R. to fix it now ( plus we didnt trust the dealer.) Forest River refused to give us a new trailer as well as the dealer. I just think they did kind of a poor job fixing the latch. I dont know. Maybe it will be stronger. Maybe not. We are waiting to hear from the Attorney General to form a case against the dealer since there are no lemon laws. Hoping to get him on deceptive practice. There need to be regulations and laws to help protect RV buyers.

I know it to late for you but others that will be getting a rig like yours .Make them put it up check the unit set up to include canvas latches appliances .water gas electric hitch .and then have them show how to stow the canvas and all things needed to use the camper .
