I may be the only Roamer here. Anyone else have a Roamer Truck Camper?

welcome!

AJ, welcome to the forum! Never seen a Roamer. Is yours like the one in this link?

https://www.truckcampermagazine.com/...roamer-camper/

Can you show us some pics?

John

Just looked at the link. Avery sleek looking, very molded fiberglass looking trailer. Glad to see that here. Some pics would definitely be in order. And welcome to the forum.

Walt

PS: Merry Christmas all.

Looks like a very well thought out design for a truck camper.

The truckcampermagazine is literally the one I bought. Some Eternabond tape on the roof is all it took to fix the leak. The dealer had used duct tape in places and the aluminum eternabond type tape, but applied it wet, so glad I took it off to get the moisture out or I would have had rusted-through bolts and screws. Dont trust dealers….
The roof is a foam sandwich, but the rest is not, just hollow cavities, so maybe one day I will fill it in.

Still chasing a few leaks. The fridge area leaks. The outer lower access door slants, the whole wall slants in, and there is nothing there to stop water from rolling in. I will fix this soon.
Front window leaks. Need to find plexiglass.
The fridge roof port leaks, again, more poor repair from the dealer or whoever. Lat sealant is so cheap, not sure how it never got used. Probably just the screws leaking as they are exposed.

I am finding in short time that fiberglass camper owners never need to become experts on RV repair. I had a HILO, and that forum is full of professional to expert do-it-yourselfers by necessity. I had to tear mine down to bones in places to make repairs, I dont see having to do this with Roamer

Wellllll, some become experts but for a different reason, mostly mods. Don't think you'll find too many stick owners replacing an axle or frame from old age, not to mention the floor from leaks. By the time their floor is bad so are the walls but on the other hand the frame and axle should still be fine . In reality, all RVs do the same overall thing. The FG shell just allows for many 30-40 y/o units to still be on the road making memories for folks.
BTW, welcome to FGRV and that's a nice looking slide in. Do post pics as you do your mods.
