point it out before taking delivery so the dealer is aware and could possibly offer some sort of repair or at least a discount. I wouild nt worry too much about it but you could always install the molded diamond plating over it and screw it dwn to the solid supports behind. Better yet have the dealer do it for you. all this of course after verifing there is no leaks etc..

If this is a delamination issue, Is that area of a major concern? If its not due to a water leak, could it possibly get worse?
Yes, it could be, not sure what would be involved in fixing it. There are thin sheets of luan are that are bowed to make the curve. It's really hard to advise much more w/out seeing it.

Just got back from looking at this again. I think we are OK.

Opening the storage area, there was a small spot about the size of a silver dollar where it looks like someone had spilled something but it was not enough to even get close to the outside wall. There is a vertical piece of laun about a foot back from that wall area. There were no leaks that I could see anywhere above that area where the bunk bed is. After carefully looking and feeling the rest of the front area there was inward movement all the way across the front except where you could feel a bulkhead close to the center of the camper. The wavyness in that area was likely done at the factory when they pressed the side molding on, at least this is what my salesmen says. All of the other caulk/seals in that area appear fine too.

Are you concerned about the waviness of the bottom trim piece? If so, they are all like that, at least mine is, as were a couple other ones we looked at. I wouldn't be concerned about that.

GoldMiner,

Thanks for posting the pics, they help a lot.

Based on what I see in pic 1 of 2 it appears that the entire surface seems to be less than "perfectly" smooth and IMO this would be considered normal with a Filon material.

In pic 2 of 2 I don't see any surface irregularities that suggest material separation.

It may just be the angle of the pic, but I would confirm where the front Filon cap at the bottom edge where it meets the top surface of the A-frame (pic 2 of 2) isn't being compromised. The full weight of the Filon cap assembly shouldn't be resting on the A-frame resulting in distorting the Filon material.

Bob

I will admit, that area concerned me a little at first also, but the dealer had other similar units, including a 2009 17C. They also had several new X17Z's, that waviness on the bottom trim was on all of them.
One of the things I do, if possible, is compare areas of concern with other similar units.

If you're still concerned then find some other units (same model) and check them out. Even if you need to drive a distance it's better to know now not later with delamination.
Good luck,
