Kodiak Express 172e Leaking Canvas and more issues
So I purchased a Kodiak Express 172e in September of 2013, and used it for the remainder of the camping season. During that time we noticed some extremely disturbing issues, two that I have listed below, others the dealer has been quick to fix.
1) The Canvas leaks in all four corners of the bunk ends at mattress level. Water drips in at a very steady rate and pools under the mattresses. We brought it back to the dealer and had them look it over, and they have told me they have raised the issue with Dutchman so I’m hoping to have a resolution before next season.
2) Condensation on the inside of the canvas bunk ends to the point that it’s like a rain forest in there. We tried everything to remove the moisture and only slightly reduced it with many tricks suggested on here and other web articles.
Overall we are disappointed with this trailer so far, I understand there would be minor issues to work out, but something as major as water interring through the canvas is something I didn’t expect. We used to have a 20 year old Tent Trailer and it never had any of these issues.
