Default Ugh. Major leak.

My front bed is soaked through right now. No obvious place that the water is coming in, but we are about to tow it down to the dealership and do a WTF with them... I don't know but I imagine that if the bed is soaked, that construction wood somewhere will be drenched and that means swelling.

Ghad. A few issues with this product and they mostly seem to be with quality of construction.

That window by the bed is a suspected leaker if the camper is tilted just right the gutter pours water down the side of that window. I've seen a little water on ours there not on the bed but in the window seal by the screen.

I agree 100% that most issues are construction/poor workmanship related.

I would definitely have it looked at soonest, if you can't track it down yourself. I wouldn't worry about it too much, though, in the short term. As long as it (the leak) is found fairly quickly, there isn't likely to be any long term damage. The frame is aluminum, so it isn't likely to suffer any and the laminate exterior will take some internal moisture without suffering any damage (delamination) as long as it isn't a long term leak. Usually, its the long term, unnoticed internal leak that causes delamination.

A PITA to be sure, but, not a crushing blow. Just have it looked at as soon as you can.

Thanks for the advice, I took it to the dealership and they are going to fix it under warranty. The leak is definitely from the roof, there were items in the over-bed storage area that were soaked.
