5er roof...

We went on a camping trip this past week. Our trip took us on the interstate for quite a while. I have this habit of looking at other units on the road and their tow vehicles...just something I enjoy while driving. Anyways, my point to this post is, I saw several 5er's with the front portion of theirs roofs billowing as they were driving down the road. It was in the forward most portion of the roof where the front cap meets the roof. It's almost as if the roof has lost its bonding with the underlayment. It looks like a big air bubble. Has anyone else seen this? Kind of makes me nervous about getting a 5er although none of them were Jaycos. I didn't notice it on any TT's, just 5ers.

Thats caused by having water issues. If you inspect your roof regularly for leaks than you wont have that problem. Also the designee is usually not very good and leaks can happen easily. I looked at my roof the other day and it is made better than my last 5th W. I had.
