Greeting!!!
Acquired this a few days ago, camped twice this week , seems solid.   Only negative is the lack of venting and the condensation.   Have a vent fan for the roof in my garage just not sure of the construction of the teardrop.  Very hard to get the manufacturer to give information.
All in all pulls great, very solid. And for less then 4 grand im loving it.20180114_125759.jpg

Attached are two pictures of Retros under construction from a factory visit by an RV magazine a couple years ago. The model in the pictures looks like a 177SE, but I think the construction of the 509 jr. is probably similar with aluminum "framing".  Youtube has a lot of videos on how to install or upgrade an RV vent fan. It looks like the trick is to cut the hole in the right place.......

My 181b has a Fan Tastic ceiling vent fan with multi-speed intake/exhaust and auto rain sensor. It is one of my favorite things about our camper! It really makes being inside the camper so much more comfortable under a range of temp and humidity situations. I think one of these fans would be a great addition to your 509 jr.!
